The problem is in the power supply/inverter board, this is usually caused by bad capacitors that in most cases have slight bulge at the top causing it to flicker and eventually shutdown. The only option is have them replaced.

I have a toshiba satellite L445D-S5976 and I am experiencing the black screen but this is different from most of the problems I've seen on here, whenever I try to turn it on the fans start up fast then...

hey.. Well this is one of 2 problems, More than likely the BackLight on your screen is dead. Dont worry that's a common problem and the fix basically is to replace the screen. You can order the screen online and then simply remove the old one from the housing by first removing the rubber plugs then the screws hidden under the plus. lift the lid off and unscrew and replace the screen. The reason why the monitor may not be turning on is because you need to switch the primary display. If you look carefully at the keyboard you will notice that there a key written Fn usually in blue, Thats the function key. There will be another key with a blue Monitor symbol usually f8 (may not be the same on yours). you hold Fn and press that key to enable the external Monitor.

If you were doing that then this is the reason for your problem. THE GPU (graphics processing Unit ) usually called the graphics card is Damaged. unfortunately yours is built onto the ma board which means to fix this you have to replace the entire board. But thats a very very rare issue. I'm betting that the First (above) one i mentioned about the Back Light is the reason for your problem..

Becuase the fan turn on loud and then settles down it means the main board is functioning properly ad the system is booting its just that you cant see it because of the back light and not switching the display unit.

The screen has been, broken for a while, and I have just been using a monitor for it, its a Samsung r519, but it did not get turned off properly, and I can't load up to Windows 7 becuase I can't...


Remove the battery.

Connect the laptop directly to the mains, without the battery.

With the laptop connected to the external monitor, power up the laptop.

If all is well, the monitor should display the boot procedure.

If no image appears on the monitor, then wait until the flashing lights on the front of the laptop flicker to see if you can tell if it appears to be following the normal boot procedure. If so, let the lights settle (especially the hard drive activity light), then use the Fn + Function keys to send the image to the external monitor again. Hopefully this will bring up the Windows desktop.

Keep the external monitor connected and switched on and follow correct shut down procedure from now on and you should be fine.

Power up the monitor before you power up the laptop.

I do advise you to get the broken screen fixed. It can be done on a while-you-wait basis by an experienced laptop repair technician who has compatible replacement LCD panels in stock.

You can get the full model number of your laptop and buy a replaement LCD Panel yourself from a safe source, such as an approved Amazon Marketplace Reseller on (direct to your search to your local country specific Amazon site for local resellers). The replacement panels are not too expensive.

Hope this helps.

I have a Microtek 17 in monitor and recently it has started to flicker badly when switch on after a couple of minutes it settles down to normal. Can you offer any comments re fixing this problem? Many...

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Cs-36509 mitsubishi tv has a flicker.Makes it hard to read words. Is real bad when you first turn the tv on, but after a minute it settles down, but is still there all the time... any suggestions?

Yes first it may just be bad solder on the
flyback transformer , or the Picture in Picture
module has some bad caps . a fair shop
price is about 180-200 and it worth the repair
they are great TVs and are made to last.

ps i have repaired my mitsubishi once , and
its going strong. 18 years old .

Its the capacitors on the backlight power supply. Samsung installed crappy ones and they blow up after a year or two. Change out the caps and you're good to go

OK your monitor is failing in the Horizontal circuitry.... OR the PSU is failing to supply the correct Voltages. Either way it is probably going to fail completely soon. With monitors so cheap now, here in NZ they are about NZ$20.00 - $50.00, repair isn't adviseable to do so, it would make more sense to put the Repair monies into a NEW screen... maybe time for an LCD?
