I found the tech support line very helpful when I first got mine last December. Some things were solved with firmware. Sounds like you might need to get it replaced and you should be well within a warranty period to give a new one a try. Good luck! I love my archos 605!

My display screen goes on and off

I find sleep mode nothing but trouble, eventually corrupts window files over extended use, go into power options, go to stand by and select never and click apply, next go to hibernate "top right" and click, make sure the check box is clear, if not! remove check and click apply and restart your laptop.

The display on my Garmin as faded away to nothing. When I turn it on, it makes all the right noises but nothing is visible on screen. A couple of weeks ago it was fading in and out but now there is...

This is not a user-fixable problem. Most likely the LCD display edge connectors are loose or corroded, but only Garmin can fix it. Your unit has a one year warranty from new (proof of purchase required); if your unit is out of warranty then Garmin have a fixed price repair policy, currently US$79 for your model.

I hope that my reply has been of assistance to you, if so please let me know by taking a moment to rate my answer.

Hp dv9500 has vertical coloured lines on screen. windows starts up ok as i can hear the program sounds, but, no display

The 9500 series unit, should still be within warranty.
HP offeers an additonal year for video problems.
That means if you purchased the 1 1/2 years ago, it is still in warranty.
Contact HP customer care and get it back. ASAP.
Hope this has helped.

Playstation 3 turns on but does nothing!

this probably can be a problem with your Hard Disk . try using a new one (borrow it from a friend, for example) , or try formatting yours in a PC (notebook) platform .

else, you can try an advanced cooler cleaning. for this, do it :
  1. Turn the system off by the switch that's behind it .
  2. Turn the switch you powered off ON while you HOLD THE EJECT BUTTON .
  3. It will make your coolers work in maximum speed for a while, this must set the system free from dust . (i don't think that's the problem).
else, contact Sony Support Center for possible hardware issue checking (maybe there's a problem with RAM units)

Need new lcd screen for 32" sylvania

I am not aware of replacing just the front screen, that is the LCD display and is most likely more than the set cost. Please be very careful when purchasing something like this on e-bay. I can't see how they will have a display for such a new set. Can you give me a model number and I will do the homework for you?
