First check on the connectors, display and the feeder, then check on the terminal. I think there is a loose wire that messes the operation. Good Luck.

How to troubleshoot video issues?


Instruction:
To troubleshoot video issues, follow these steps and test your video after performing each one:
  1. Check the video signal cable connector for bent or missing pins. Check the cable for cuts.

  2. Check to see if moving the monitor connections slightly causes color changes. Tighten loose connections.

  3. In the case of systems with multiple video output connections, verify that the correct connection is being used.
    • Some systems ship with two video connectors on the back, however only one is enabled.
matrix12.jpgExample of a desktop computer equipped with 2 video output connectors.
  1. Standard on board video connection
  2. Optional video adapter connection (some models)
  1. If the monitor has multiple inputs, remove the secondary connections from the computer.

  2. Remove all signal cable extensions and Keyboard, Video, and Mouse (KVM) switch boxes.
    • Use of these devices can result in severely degraded video quality or no video symptoms.

  3. Eliminate wire bundles and magnetic fields from nearby appliances, such as those from speakers, as possible influences on color quality.

  4. If applicable, remove and reseat the video adapter card.

  5. Check to see if the display is visible and check for proper color during startup.

  6. Verify that the video is working by booting to the operating system in Safe Mode.
    • To enter Safe mode press F8 when the Windows logo first appears on the screen during system startup.

  7. Ensure that the most recent video driver has been installed.
    1. Right click on the Windows desktop.
    2. Click Properties.
    3. Click the Settings tab.
    4. Click the Advanced button.
    5. Click the Adapter tab.
    6. Click the Properties button.
    7. Click the Driver tab.
    8. Compare the Driver Version: with the current version and update if needed.
  8. Run the monitor setup program.
    • Some monitors are supplied with setup programs on CD-ROM or diskette. Follow the manufacturers directions.
    • Readability can be improved on some systems by running the Microsoft ClearType tuner.
  9. Check video quality by changing the hardware video adapter to the lowest available resolution.
    1. Right click on the Windows desktop.
    2. Click Properties.
    3. Click the Settings tab.
    4. Use the Screen resolution sliding selector to change resolution.
      The resolution selections available should be limited to the capabilities of the video adapter.
    • Some of the selections available may exceed the monitor capabilities and result in a temporary black screen.
    1. Click OK.
    2. Compare results with other screen resolution selections.

  10. Ensure that the display being used can support the video refresh rate and screen resolution specified in display properties.
    • The manual for your monitor should list the supported refresh rates and screen resolutions.
    • Open the Display Properties dialog box to verify that the refresh rate and screen resolutions are set properly:

      1. In the Properties window, click Settings.
      2. Click Advanced.
      3. Select the Monitor tab to view or change the refresh rate for the monitor.
Notes:
  • Some system boards ship with the AGP slot disabled and plugged. These slots have been disabled at the chipset level and do not work. The plugs should not be removed.
  • Some AGP adapters use a retaining clip, which must be moved to one side to prevent damage when removing the adapter.
  • Setting the video resolution to 640x480x16 colors in Device Manager is not the same as changing the hardware to a VGA adapter. You must change the adapter selection from the installed adapter, i.e. ATI, nVidia, or Matrox, to a standard VGA adapter in the Display Properties dialog box.
  • Some Intel chipsets uses Dynamic Video Memory technology (DVMT) for video memory. The initial memory count can indicate less than expected system memory count.
  • Signal cable extensions and keyboard, video, mouse (KVM) switches are not supported.

My monitor screen goes completly black and then comes back on again?


It could be a couple of things. The power cord could be coming loose, or the display cable could be also loose.
Other things it could be the actual display cable could have some sort of short in it. Have you tried trying another outlet to plug it in to?

Pc turns on then goes to orange lite on monitor


Simple stuff first - power and connections to monitor good? Anything at all displayed as the machine is switched on? Yes: can you access safe mode (F8 when windows starts), if so enter windows and right click on desktop and choose properties, change display resolution to 1024x768 for example. No:
Any work inside the machine you should disconnect power first and preferable earth yourself when you are touching the boards.
Video card (where the monitor is connected) is seated correctly. Take out and put back in.
Try another monitor and cable to ensure these are working.
Check you have the 12v cable connected to the motherboard from the PSU. It is an additional cable that is required on some motherboards and can prevent display.
Does the motherboard make any beeps? Just one is good, more is not.
If you only get one beep and you have checked all above, then maybe a problem with video card - is it a separate card - see inside in slots where your monitor cables are plugged in. Could be loose, need reseating.
Best of luck

My 3210 fails to start up the repair shop says it the motherboard replaced it and the cpu and the psu and it still doesnt start up any ideas


if you have change already the motherboard, cpu and psu here is what you need to do to check your pc by yourself and may be figure out what the cause of the problem.

1. connect the connector on your psu the motherboard. connect psu connector for hard drive, cdrom drive exhaust fan.
2. turn on the pc. look inside, if you see the led on the motherboard turn green then there's a power coming out from the psu.
3. hear the hard drive if its working, you can feel it vibrate.
4. check the little blower in the video card, if its spinning then there is supply in it.

when you turn on your pc the logo on the screen on the monitor will display. should you not see it, check if the monitor is plug in the ac outlet or the extension of your computer. if you see it then monitor is good. If this display followed by a dark screen with no signal display, then it means it is receiving no signal from your video card. go check the vga cable if its properly fix to the monitor and the video card. you can also detach the video card from the motherboard and reseat it properly. this sometime is the fix for no display.

If after booting after the logo, nothing else but dark screen, then is suggest you loosen the harddrive and reseat the connector properly, restart the system again. you can also check if the voltage from the power supply is dropping when there is a load in it. using a multitester test the 4pin connector. readings from the red wireshould be +5vdc and the yellow +12vdc. If its dropping then system will hang. check if there is shorted in your cpu, most of the time it is the blower or exhaust fan.

post back your findings so i can still help you out.
goodluck

he power cable on your psu and the plug to the ac outlet. turn

HP G60-458DX shutsdown when display is moved.


To me a direct indication that the Display Panel Cable connector is loose, or damaged pbthomas.

The connector on the Inverter side most likely. Or again, the cable could be damaged.

The Display Panel Cable could have been pinched, or the wires inside the cable could have been stretched causing them to break, and touch each other. If stretched the sheath of the cable may, or may not, show visual signs of damage.

Since the Display Panel Cable leads from the motherboard, (Under the Keyboard), up along the left Display Panel Hinge, and into the Display Panel Assembly, then connects to the Inverter, it would be feasible for this damage to occur.

Probably right at the Left Hinge area.

The HP G60-458DX is one of the HP G60 series of Notebook PC's.
Allow me to show you the Display Panel Cable, it's location, and how to access it,

This link takes you to a website where you can download the Service Manual, for the HP G60 series of Notebook PC's, for free,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-compaqhp

On this page go down to the 13th line. The one that starts with G50.
Scroll across, and click on > G60

This is a PDF file. Allow time for it to download. Average time is usually around 5 seconds to see the first page come up, and an additional 40 to 50+ seconds for the file to fully download.


Ignore the following if you are aware;

The Page Number box is at the top of the PDF file to the right of the blue Down Arrow.
If you know the page number you want you can use one of two methods to go to that page.

1) Use the blue Down Arrow to go page by page,

OR

2) Put your mouse cursor in the page number box.
Left-click once
Type the page number
Press the Enter key

Go to Page 63.
Item 3 points to the Display Panel Cable.
(You can enlarge the view size by clicking on the Zoom In icon at the top of the PDF file.
It's the circle with the Positive symbol in it ( + )

Go to Page 66.
The second illustration down, again shows the Display Panel Cable, in Number 13.
The Display Panel Cable is indicated by item 2.


To access the Display Panel Cable:

A) To just access the Display Panel Cable on the motherboard side:

1) Remove ALL power to the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery
2) Observe Anti-Static Precautions. (Page 41. Grounding Guidelines)

3) Remove the Keyboard. Page 56
4) Remove the Keyboard Cover. Page 59

[NOTE on removing the Keyboard, and the connector AT THE END of it's flat cable.

The Keyboard cable is an FFC. Flat Flex Cable. It does Not have a connector attached to it.
The connector is mounted to the motherboard.

The Flat Flex Cable comes out of the connector on the motherboard.
Just a flat cable made of a flat plastic sheath, with copper wires going through it.

Only one side of the plastic sheath is exposed, for the bare copper wire endings to make a contact.
The flat flex cable must be reinstalled in the direction it came out.

The connector on the motherboard is a Zero Insertion Force connector. (ZIF) It may be thought of as a plastic rectangular block, that is two separate pieces, however it Does Not come apart in two pieces.

One of the two pieces slides away from the other one.
The larger piece stays attached to the motherboard, while the upper smaller piece that faces the LCD screen, moves.
The upper piece only slides so far.

When the two pieces are squeezed together, they pinch the flat flex cable, and lock it into position.
When the connector is opened, or the upper piece is slid away from the larger stationary piece, the flat flex cable is released.


B) To access the Display Panel Cable on the Display Panel side:

Follow 1 and 2 above.

The Display Panel must be removed, and opened.
The Display Bezel is removed to access the other end of the Display Cable, which is attached to the Inverter.
Page 62

If it isn't obvious that the connector is loose on either end of the Display Cable, then the Display Cable should be tested with a multimeter set to OHMs.

{An economical multimeter can be purchased for around $10 to $12. Most auto parts stores carry them, as well as a multitude of other stores.

The multimeter function knob is set to OHMs.
The Positive (Red) probe lead goes into a socket hole, in the connector at one end of the Display Cable.
The Negative (Black) probe lead goes into a socket hole, in the connector at the other end of the Display Cable}

You should get continuity from one socket hole at the end of the cable, to the socket hole at the other end of the cable. (Needle on meter face of multimeter will move)

If it isn't obvious as to which socket hole on one end, matches up to a socket hole on the other end, hold the probe in one socket hole of one end of the cable, then test each socket hole on the other end of the cable, with the other probe.

Note*
Only one socket hole at the other end of the cable should show continuity.

If more than one socket hole at the other end of the cable shows continuity, you have two broken wires touching each other.

Check the continuity of each wire in the Display Cable.
Wiggle the Display Cable when checking for continuity to see if there is a break.

No continuity through a wire, or an intermediate continuity, (By wiggling the cable), means the Display Cable is bad. Replace.

This pictorial guide should also help you in removing the Display Panel,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-replace-damaged-lcd-screen-hp-g50-g60-g70-notebook/

The Display Cable comes with the Webcam Cable as a kit.
HP part number > 496841-001

This is an example of the kit,

Green light next to power button stays on - no response from computer, totally frozen for up to 12 hrs, then green light goes off, computer suddenly comes on for 5-10 min then freezes again.


Good day sir, hi, You need a thorough check on your PC.
But first try testing the Motherboard, Processor and Memory module.

As this point you need a friend, that knows how to tinker with your PC

Or you may need to do this.

1. memory testing:
Try replacing a new memory ram module on your PC, get the modules out of the memory slot, and let it be tested on another PC. if good,

2. power supply
Test for the power supply box, remove the 20/24 pin power connector from the mainboard and short the green and any black wire, your fan should blow out air.

3. Test for motherboard.
remove all coonections from the motherboard, except the 20/24 pin power connector, and the 12v 4-pin molex power connector, connect the pc speaker or the thumb speaker on the speaker port, connect a keyboard, clear the CMOS, (or remove the battery temporarily), connect the header panel (power switch, reset, power led) place the processor and memory (the tested good one). power on.


You should hear a beep (good) The keyboard will light up the three leds, then a few seconds, the numlock led.

If you hear 1 long and 2 or 3 short beeps, problem with the display section. Reseat any graphics card. test again.

If you hear continous beeps, reseat the memory, if the beeping persist, replace your motherboard.

If you hear nothing? only fan blowing, replace your motherboard.

I can only give you instructions, you need a someone who knows how to service a PC.

Powering on the laptop does not turn on the display at all.


Most laptop screens connect to the motherboard(and therefore to power) through a small cable which generally runs very close to the hinge on the right hand side.
This cable can come loose.
If your laptop appears ok in all other ways this might be the issue.
Just plug a normal monitor into the back and youll see if the laptop itself is working ok.
To reseat this cable involves opening up your laptop, which I wouldnt recommend if it is still in warranty or if you're not too sure of yourself

Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092/ Computer will come on, but screen will not work. Wondering if it is most likely the LCD screen itself, the backlight or something else.


Hi,

If you have deduced that indeed the Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092 will boot and therefore operational except no display on the screen, you can always verify by connecting an external monitor. You of course would need to press Fn + F? (the F key with the small monitor icon).

As to the LCD screen having no display, often this could either be the CCF lamps (cold cathode florescent) and/or the inverter that powers it. One way to verify this is by shining a flashlight obliquely to the screen and a portion of your desktop would show albeit very very dark. Often, it is the inverter that fails. In some instances it could even just be a cold solder, loose connection or capacitors that have dried up, leaky or blistering.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
