Vertical strip of flashing horizontal lines on Acer Aspire 7551G screen

More than likely it's the lcd screen and will have to be replaced. I could be the video card, but most likely the lcd screen especially when you can put pressure on the screen and cause changes. To isolate the problem try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the laptop. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then the problem is with your lcd screen and the video card is ok. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same as your lcd screen then the problem is with your video card inside the computer.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Once you narrow it down to the lcd screen as being the problem you might try taking the lcd screen apart to reseat the lcd cable on the back at the top of the lcd. Just unplug it and plug it back into the connector. You can also try doing the same where the lcd cable plugs into the motherboard. Just pull it out and put it back.

Monitor flashes and turns off on Pavilion a1410y. Same monitor for computer, never changed. I took the monitor off and used it on another fine. I am thinking video card, is there a way...

happy new year@!
power on, PSU faN RUNS, OK, cpu FAN RUNS"
My guess, screen never shows text ever.! or logo's
no screen stated, make and model.
A1410y bad. PC. for sure. no video but what ,video is never first.
you cant test MUCH lacking spares.
you did the only test, monitor is good, hope that was done moving it with this potentially bad cable, VGA?

i cant see inside your PC desk top.
2006 PC , with no onboard VGA jack.
Athlon 64 (V) 3800+ 2.4 GHz
  • Manufacturer: Asus
  • Motherboard Name: A8N-LA
  • HP/Compaq motherboard name: Nagami-GL8E
3 pci slots and 1 express x16 for video
gee is the x16 , slot with video card there. making it 2 VGA now.

the x16 slot can have just about any card there. made
but less that 75watts.
over that needs special PSU and cable betwixt them.

if the fans run, never stated by you. both fans
or 3 if the X16 slot GPU card has a fan as do all higher powered do(most)
then the PSU is dead.
we strip pcs down to find shorts, shorts happen.

see the red arrow that is Mr. VGA.
the coin cell ther too, is dead now, get rid of all RTC coin cells
now, lacking a good coin cell the BIOS goes dead. or nuts.
bottom right is coin, shinny nickle plated. cell battery

Bug in screen

It is unlikely the bug got between the inner Fresnel lens and the outer cylindrical disperser lens of this DLP as the separation is minimal and blocked off all around. Much more likely is that is inside the Fresnel lens and may be cleared off with a clean microfiber cloth through a port to be found on each side (guessing) of the set. Try not to add dust. You can also go to avsforum <> and search for Samsung HL-P6163 or similar 5-year old. -Ken

Removing a screen protector from a Hitachi 50UX58B Projection color TV

There is a black plastic strip that fits into the groove at the top of the frame holding the protector and front screen. Pull that down and out (you might need to pry a little to get it started). The attached picture shows the strip partially pulled out at the right edge (photo depicts the top right of a 58K - with a wood cabinet).ea84b4b.jpg
Once this strip is removed, you should be able to see a gap (~2mm) between the top of the protector and the frame. Pull the middle of the protector toward you (you may need to hook it with something like a chrochet hook to get it out to where you can get a finger on it). Pull out one side of the protector, then work it loose fromt he bottom. (If it is stubborn, you may have to loosen the bottom frame. Take of the speaker grill, then unscrew the screw on the bottom of the surround for the control panel and pop the surround out. Then there are 3 screws that hold the cabinet frame {might me different for the 58B} and beneath that, 3 screws that hold the bottom of the inside frame. Once those are removed, you should be able to flex the inside frame enough to loosen the protector.)

Installation is the reverse. There are two grooves (at least on my set), and the protector goes in the rear groove(!) (same as the screen itself - first time I tried to put it in the unused groove closer to the front of the screen, and that iddn't work). The black plastic retainer strip goes in the front groove.

Led light turns on for a while and goes off

where is the LED< you never said. (exactly)
monitor or PC, ?
you posted a laptop to a forum called monitors
which is it, a laptop , desktop or only a monitor.?
toss coin, land LT. 2700 (legacy relic with square screen floppy and windows 98 first ones)
take out the battery , the big one, it must run forever on AC power pack or its a hardware problem. (there can be 2 main batteries)
1 bottom and on the right rear, CD out, and battery is its place.
yes, that is what they did then if you have it. I cant see yours.
Next do the HP long reset.
all batteries, out, now. (bottom big, right rear, out)
power pack out. disconnected.,
push the power button from 10 to 30 seconds, this is the HP classic, long reset in every manual they make and on there service page, 1st thing.

next is power pack, if still dead. the goal is getting the F10 key
BIOS to work first. it must work at all times at power on
power button on , hammer f10. and see bios
if fact it told you to press F10 for 16 years now, every day.
2001 laptops have zero value. now. zero. upgrade to 2008 is better, put this one in he trash. go to goodwill store upgrade for $20? (they wont want yours, sorry, its too old)

so do that. is bet but if maniacal. ? H3LL bent to spend $120 or more with a HDD bad, on a $1 PC, here goes.
OS + HDD = $170
if the screen is dead now say so, say totally black screen
what it did before it died, is not important unless the fan is dead is it? (all PC's ran ok before now)
then ask for help,
windows will shut done only if it is corrupted. (self)
hardware has many cause of shut down, about 10 causes.
one is the PC overheated from not cleaning it every year.
the run down. BSOD (black)
big battery out, AC pack only, got that?
this PC has a place for 2 main batteries both out now.

The PC has CMOS cOin cell, not one ever lasts 16 years.
so that be like the first thing id replace (basic service this is)
open bottom hatch cover to see it.

1: fan dead or all vent and to it blocked in lint as all are this old.
1b: fan dead not packed?
see slide show of nasty LT here.
2: coin cell dead, above 2.9v ok, below never. remove it replace
3: power on hammer f10 the screen most show , "hit f10 to enter setup" if not bad screen or far worse (yes 3 billion transistors inside can fail, main board, or shorted modules inside up to 8)
4: now the flash light trick this old dog has CCFL back lamps.
do this.

if that shows DATA, then the CCFL are bad.
if no data now, the problem is more serious

if it still is dead, we replace the power pack
or remove all modules in the PC that can short killing power dead.
any thing inside can short. 4 ways in fact, DC power, data, address or control buses. to find that we pull things, to find it.
ask. im not teaching Fault isolation checks here. but that last link above has it, see key word stripping there (control+F)

if all you wanted was to guess, say so, say no diagnosis guessing.
for that I say it needs to be cleaned of a pound of dust inside and new coin cell and dump the 2 useless main batteries, if both there.

power-rzlrtvwphug01fp4xtvrxrj1-3-0.jpg left is power (both), right is battery failures.
for the coin cell, (its hard to get to on this PC)
read page 63 (pdf) here
the service manual. is here, for free, do not pay scalpers for it.
