Sounds like the drop damaged the screen. To check this, connect it to an external monitor. If everything works properly, then the screen is damaged and will need replaced. If it doesn't work properly, then a motherboard component has been damaged, and you will most likely want to take it in to have a professional diagnostics done.

Hi there people. My son has an Aprilia Sr 50cc 2010 . Indicators work and flash fine when engine off and ignition on. When we start engine they stay on . No flashing . help please

cant find an online repair manual for that scooter

could be the indicator switch itself
a bad earth
best start with checking the flasher relay and wire connections to it
loose or broken wire with vibration when motor running

maybe flasher itself
is ok when cold not ok when hot
or its overloading with the engine running

Hi I have a samsung n130 it has been dropped on one corner which has broke the lid the laptop powers up to hundreds of coloured lines. Is this the screen or the grahpics chip Thanks

Ask yourself which is MORE likely:

The screen got damaged when the computer was dropped


The graphics chip got damaged when the computer was dropped

Think about that for a few seconds, then go order a new computer screen.

Laptop dropped and has messed up the pixels, the colours all over the place and a bit fuzzy..... I've done a disc clean up & fragged but stays the same even in safe mode :( Help!!!

Hi its possible that the graphics chip or its related components was affected during that fall,but before you go for a new board,check and see if the Ram has also been unseated during remove the ram an put them back properly.

The turntable does not turn and the oven does not heat


the solution to your oven is very simple

this mean that your oven has been disconnected from the wire (maize) that connecte your oven to the AC i.e electric supply

what you need to do from here
is that unscerw your oven and then locate or trace the wire (or it is call maize) technicaly if there is any disconnection from it

then if there is any you have to do the connection your self by fixing up your wire to the element which supply heat to the oven for you to locate the element it is silver in colour

and for the fan you will have to do the same thing that is same process which you have follow at the first time
the colour for thses wire are always in two colour or three (RED and BLACK) or(RED, BLACK AND any other colour which is working as the earth)

pleace if you can follow this solution then our oven and it fan will star working fine again

thank you and thanks for using fixya

Screen cracked laptop was accidentely dropped laptop still working but the screen is not showing everything on it ie:colour faded in places

your screen really might be damaged, you cant fix it unless you change the lcd itself,buy a 2nd hand lcd, its cheaper than buying a new one

Dropped Nintendo DS Lite on wooden floor - NOW IT WON'T TURN ON

remove the battery for a few mins and put it back in and try again?
Its a long shot but theres very little you can do with this, the insides of the DS lite are REALLY small and the only replaceable parts are the screen, buttons, etc. and you cant really fix damage to the board or chips inside which presumably is whats happened here if you get zero response.
Sorry.. :(
