46in Vizio LCD HDTV distorted black picture when tv is turned on

Hi There are three things that can cause this problem. Your lcd screen, t-con board or the signal board. Most likelly in your case since you say it's only half the screen it's going to be your t-con board. You can try removing it and cleaning all the contacts and replacing it see if that helps. If that doesn't help then replace it. If that does not solve it then it's going to be your screen.

I have a Cannon PowerShot S2 IS digital camera, about 5 years old. The LCD Monitor and Viewfinder both only show a black screen with some of the Dispay Icons across the top and bottom, and after a few...

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

After taking pictures with bright colors, image in the viewer blink black/white over brightly lit objects...Help, it's making me crazy!

You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been so overexposed that they've gone pure white, losing all detail. This is generally considered a bad thing so the camera is warning you about it. But the camera doesn't know what you're taking a picture of, things like the sun reflecting off polished chrome should go pure white, so it's just a warning.

Usually the proper fix is to reduce exposure, bringing back the lost details. This risks losing details in the shadows as they go pure black, but that's generally considered not as bad. After all, we don't expect to see things in the dark.

That was the long answer. The short answer is to press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your picture.

My Sony Vaio VGN-NS110D Laptop computer won’t boot up, it cycles through to a black screen with the mouse pointer there which I can move. Apparently this is called the ‘black screen of death’! I can’t do...

Try these 1) Shut down the system 2) Remove the battery 3) Hold down the power button for say 2 minutes 4)Put the battery back 5) Boot the system
If you still hit the black screen with a cursor: 1) Wait for 2 mins at the black screen 2) Just type in your windows password (if you don't have one hit enter) and press enter 3) Wait for another 2-3 mins 4) Hit Alt Ctrl Delete and go to task manager (this time it should take you to the task manager) - fingers crossed LOL 5) Now do new task - explorer.exe
Hopefully you should be back in action.
Note, this is a work around and for a permanent fix either try and clean your system (check for viruses) or reinstall the system. Hope this helps.

It only shows a black screen

I was having the black screen problem intermittently (of course when you really want to take a picture quickly). I downloaded v1.1 of the firmware from olympus (via the Olympus Master 2 program) and the black screen problem has not reoccurred yet. Hasn't been tested over a long period of time yet, but that seemed to fix it.
