I see that your Thinkpad T400 machine is locked and you are unable to make use of the machine.
to be able to unlock the machine power the system on once turned ON you will see a Lock icon on the center of the screen just press and hold down the FN key for at least 5-7 seconds or if possible untill the lock icons shows that it is unlocked.
Hi and thank you for using fixya:
You said you see a blank menu screen. What are the options on the menu? what do you see exactly. While your console is on press down the power button for 30 seconds to restart to factory settings.
remove the battery and adapter. press power button for 30 sec. then connect the adapter. press power button. if this didnt work. you need to ask for an help of a local tech to check for the video card and cable.
Here's some ideas to try. Try them in order and see each one goes. I tried to start with easiest...
With it powered up use the key combination to switch between external monitor and built-in display. At least on my Acer it's Fn+F5. The icon looks kind of like an empty square next to a filled in square separated by a vertical line.
Hold down power button for ~8 seconds until it turns off then wait about 10 seconds and power it back on and give it a second to see if it will come back to life.
With the machine powered off remove the battery. Leave it out for for at least 10 minutes (longer the better actually) then put it back in. Power on machine and see what happens.
If the battery removal above didn't work take out the battery again and try re-seating the memory and/or hard drive and/or optical drive (but not at the same time)
Clear the ERROR from the screen: Press and hold the MY CYCLES and BACK buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The control will display any recorded errors. Please write down what error codes are shown on your screen in case service is needed. If a MORE icon is displayed on the screen, press MORE to list additional errors. When the EXIT button appears, press EXIT.
Remove Power: Follow the onscreen instructions to remove power (unplug unit) and then immediately plug unit back in.
Clear Setup Mode: After power is restored, a setup screen that begins with "Congratulations..." will be shown. DO NOT PRESS the OK button shown at the bottom of the screen. Press the START/STOP and POWER buttons simultaneously until the Home Screen is displayed. Your unit is ready to function normally.
Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.
I have a similar problem. Just found out a possible solution yesterday. I am waiting for my lamp but here's what you need to do if you have replaced your lamp. Go into self diagnostics mode: Switch of your TV via remote, you will see red standy by light. Now,on the remote press "Display"=>"Channel 5"=>"Volume Up"=>"Power Button". All these keys need to be pressed within 3 seconds. You will now enter the diagnostics mode. Press "Jump" on remote (bottom right) 3 times and then press "Channel 2" 9 times. The screen will display your current lamp hours used.
In order to reset your tv to factory settings and for the new bulb to work you must reset this timer or else your TV will assume you are still using the old bulb and will automatically kick in "over protection mode". So here's what you do once you do on the lamp hours display screen. Press the "Channel 3" button on the remote 3 times then "Mute" then "Press Enter" to reset the timer to zero. Your TV should now work as normal. And remember, whenever a part is replaced all factory settings must be reset to zero. To do this, follow "Display"=>"Channel 5"=>"Volume Up"=> "Power Up" to enter service mode. Finally, press "Channel 8" and then "Enter" to put the TV back to factory settings.
The above mentioned is usually performed by a service technician and they charge somewhere around $95 diagnostic fee. You just saved this charge. If you see flashing red lights count them when they flash in sequence. This is a code for the techs to tell them what is wrong. These flashing red lights sequentially flash from 0 to 10 times to identify a problem. Usually, when the bbulb goes bad the only thing that might need to be replaced would be a "lamp Driver" aka "Power Block Assembly" $116.25 online from Sony, or the ballast. Sometimes, if you do not have a video a Thermal FUse can go bad which only costs $4.80 for the KDF60-XS955 but the techs will charge you over $300. You can do this yourself if you can get your hands on a service manual.
Is the green flashing on the tower or the monitor?
If it is flashing on the monitor, then it might be tht the monitor is not gettign signal from the tower.
To check, disconnect the monitor from the tower and check the monitor. If you get a msg on the screen like no input signal or check video cable, then 99% monitor is fine.
Check for the power supply light at the back of the tower.
Disconnect everything from the computer and then press and hold the power button on the comp for about 30 seconds.
Then connect the cables and check if it is working.
