    My M5 just suffered an impact that resulted in basically a blank screen, two different shades of grey. I think the unit is working, just no screen. a couple of resets have had no effect, any suggestions?

My samaung notebook screen does not show coler it seems red points on home screen

If the screen is mainly red, you need to replace the LCD display panel. First! hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture okay! the above mentioned needs to be changed, but if both show the same symptom it is the video graphics card that is the problem normally built into the motherboard.

Only TOP half of picture shows, rest is black???

No,problems u discribing the LCD screen panel some how it shorted and dead.Replacing the LCD screen panel is not an option,because LCD screen panel are 90% of the tv,so replacing it.LCD screen panel will cost the same as a new tv,because LCD screen panel are limited produced by the tv corporations.It time to buy a new tv.

Monitor is only showing vertical/horizontal gray/white screen

Your video card has fried unfortunately. If you are familiar with the internal workings of a PC you can open it up and check the power cells on the video card itself, they will usually show signs of damage such as cracking etc. I would have a qualified professional take a look at it. I would recommend as a starting place for finding a new one

Cellphone - black screen

There is a LCD strip (Bunch of closely punched wires, that makes up a connector). If you have replaced the LCD yourself them there may be chances that the strip is not properly punched. That strip comes out of display and goes straight onto the main circuit board.
This is a common issue that makes the Phone works perfectly but in a black-out mode.
I hope you have a clear picture now.

My streetpilot c330 won"t shut off.



ONE, RESET IT !!! (See resetting instructions below)

TWO, let the battery die out!

Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Video Display Problem

Thats because its all onboard and you have to replace the mother board. Its probably the screen, not the video card seeing as how external displays work fine.

Most likely over heating or damage to the screens data ribbon that connects to the board is causing the issue.

Or someon put something to heavy on the lid.

remove the keyboard and underneaith should be the push in ribbon connector that attaches the monitor to the system board.

try removeing and re-connecting it.

Make sure the laptop is off of course.

While your in there, use some compressed air to clear out any dust around the CPU and Fans and anywhere else.

Most likely its a gonner, try finding a new or used one on ebay ans ordering from the manufacturer is usually very expensive.

Good luck

Could it possibly be your backlight setting? I had a problem with my screen staying dark until i set the brightness level.
settings -> system -> backlight -> brightness -. then adjust your settings.
