    Hi Shane,

    If you have no backlight, it means that backlight is "cactus". The best way to have it be fixed is to contact the manufacturer directly. You may contact them at:

    PHONE (Toll-free in US) - 1-800-NAVIG8R or 1-800-628-4487
    PHONE (Direct) - 603-324-2042
    FAX - 603-324-2043
    HOURS - Mon-Fri 8:15 AM-4:45 PM Central Time (closed holidays)

    --> you can also visit their Customer contact page here.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you for using FixYa.

All wheel drive disabled message and error showing in odomiter

Hi Shane, I'm glad to help!

Shane, anytime you have a disabled message, it means there is a problem within the system that the message is for. You'll need to have the codes checked to see what is causing it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Shane.

My 2000 chevy blazer has been running slighty rough then yesterday when I went to start it up there was a bang and some smoke came from the engine then it raced a bit then dropped down to a very off rough...

Hi Shane, I would suggest you take the vehicle for a scan or if it doesn't run get someone to come and scan it. I would think that the problem has something to do with the ignition timing which on your vehicle may be a defective camshaft or crank shaft sensor. I'm making a blind guess so I revert to my first suggestion. Regards John

When buying a new LED laptop screen, do I have to buy a backlight as well or does a new screen include the backlight. Both the current laptop screen and backlight are damaged on my notebook.


No, the backlight comes already installed with the screen. The only other thing that that you may have to replace (and i doubt it) could be the LCD inverter, but that is not part of the screen but rather the part which provides power to the screen so it will light up.

you should be fine with just purchasing a new screen.

I start up my screen play 5000 and no startup menu appears or no picture, the lamp is working as the projection is white only. What is wrong. Regards: Shane Cook

The Projector was sitting unplugged for about a year, after having the projector plugged in for a while I disconected from the power for about a minut and then plugged the power back in.
I guess the battery within the Projector had no power.
