Doomed no, broken TV yes! But it may not bee too critical.. As with most small LCD's the power supply carries the greatest heat and by-in-large is the module most likely to fail. I'd guess the regulators probably went thermal and before you could shut it down it melted some plastics in or near the heat sinks. Strongly recommend haveing it sent to a shop for an estimate. If it's the SMPS they're not too terribly expensive. I just replaced one a couple of days ago in an Audiovox 27" and the supply was $50 from Vance Baldwin. Hope this helps. Bill

What needs to happen to view picture? Screen is currently black.

Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

A drink was spilt on the keyboard which later on made the computer crash and just show a black screen at first, but slowly fades to an off-white color... this all happens when you first power on the unit....

Hi,

Eventhough u replaced ur main mother board, the issue can happen if the drink has reached the graphics card part or the display adapter.Better give it for servicing . I strongly believe it is the problem of display unit ( whether its display adpater or Graphics card)

Thank u

Please rate my solution as it cost only one click

Drink split on keys, now has fading to white screen. big problem.

Well if the motherboard is replaced, it is probably a problem with the laptop monitor. If this is the case, at this point, it's probably cheaper to buy a new laptop.

A while ago my phone started blurring and it started happening more often everyday. all the functions still work. the screen would just mess up and sometimes it would be a little slow. then it started...

hello there ..problem with your display IC i believe its a very old phone

you need to consult a local repair shop...they will probably say that screen needs to be changed but i would advice buying a new phone is always better than repairing ..some other problem will keep on emerging if you go for repairing....while you can buy a new phone that will save a lot of time ,money and energy

hope this help

Cheers

Error message

my camera did the same thing, lens retracts 3 or 4 times, and then proceeded with an error message "turn off and on again". I pressed the power button probably about 10 times, didn't work, so then i gave it a good smack on the top of the frame a few times while repeatedly pressing the power button and it did the trick. Hasn't gave me problems since...hope it helps
