    Many thanks for advise, I'll probably have it repaired as i can be a little heavy handed with light electronics, I am a heavy engineer with an unhealthy interest in corrosion damage to heavy rolling stock.

Over time this can happen your top screen has started to go. you can either fix it yourself by buying a new top screen or having someone service it for you.

if you want to tackle it by yourself then we would be more then happy to share the steps involved in doing so.

I have a sharp sf2116 copier. when copying i am getting half of the page printed properly but the other half is feint. i have renewed the toner.

problem is not the toner , could be the developer unit stopping at that point when it becomes feint and then no new toner gets to the drum,
it could be the transfer section

Samsung n 210 screen becomes unreadable

These screens have a fluorescent light behind them. If that light is flaky, the screen will go dark. I'd suggest checking that. They usually can be replaced--but carefully.

When I try to slide my phone open to type the display skews at an angle and becomes unreadable. If I close it back, part of the screen will go white. sometimes the top and bottom go white, but you can...

Maybe a magnet has come loose in the handset, Or you have exposed it to a magnet. Or there is a loose conection when you slide the handset. Either way you will need a new display

Screen is horizontal and a Mirror image

I'm sorry, the phone is screwed. I've had this happen. All you can do is replace the screen, assuming it's worth saving. Get a junker phone and pull the screen outta it. It's a little bit of a pain, as you've gotta have a soldering iron to lift the ground wire, but after that you are home free!

Playstation 3

Hey Hagster,

Generally, the noise level produced by any optical device - including a PS3 - will depend on the work load being processed at any given time. The larger the work load, the louder the PS3 may become. Additionally, some users have reported that the sound level generated by PS3's appears to vary depending on the model you own. This may be due to the fact that at least two different types of case fans were used during production, but remember that environmental conditions may still have a direct impact on your PS3's performance as well. What you are encountering may not necessarily be a hardware defect, but instead a result of the unit’s hardware configuration.

As long as your PS3 is not making any unusual clicking, grinding or whining noises during Blu-ray playback, you should be relatively safe. If you're still not quite sure, remember that you can always speak with Sony directly for more information. A technical support agent at their toll-free hotline should be able to provide you with further suggestions or information on how to minimize any noise during playback.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

I am not familiar with your particular model, but I do know what the problem is.
The inverter that runs the lights behind the screen is faulty and needs to be repaired. The lights shine from the top and bottom and reflect outwards through the panel so you can see what is on the screen. If you start the computer up, then shine a bright light into the panel you will see an image on the screen, but very feintly.
This can be cheap, it can also be expensive depending on where you go to get it repaired. Call aorund to a few TV shops in your area to get a rough idea on prices.

Hope that helps =)

Black screen no picture

Your inverter has died and is a very common fault with all LCD monitors. The inverter powers the lights that sit behind the screen so you can see what is happening. So no lights, no picture.
Shining a bright torch at an angle from the top you will be able to see the image on screen, but very feintly.
This is something your local TV repair shop will be able to take care of fairly cheaply. It's not a good idea to play around in these types of monitors unless you have some understanding of what lay ahead.

Let me know if I can help further.
