The problem is - a Packard Bell EasyNote TJ61 - I replaced the screen on it the other week and all was working fine. After shutting it out down the other night, I pressed the power button on in the morning and the fans started as normal but lasted for about 5 seconds and the laptop was silent. The screen remained black and the power light stayed on.
I also noticed that when I use the touch pad for sound / bluetooth / wifi etc - the buttons light up when touching them.
I press in the power button to shut it off and nothing happens until the battery dies or I do a battery pull.
Any suggestions? I have replaced screens / ram / drivers / cpu's etc in the past on different laptops / pcs but this has become the strangest/hardest thing I have tried and can't figure it out.
i had a similar issue with a laptop screen... start up... black screen... it would do this half a dozen times... i would have to hit the reset button with a paper clip... then eventually it would boot up with the screen... i never did find out why it did this. i just had to keep trying to turn it on... sometimes it would turn on after a few times... other times i would have to reset 6 or 7 times before i got the screen to turn on.
I have a similar issue with my laptop where the screen will turn black sometimes after booting up, or after being idle for a while. The way i solved the issue was by closing the screen about 75% of the way, and then reopening it. The screen comes back every time... not really sure what's going on here either but I'd rather not mess with the power settings so I'm content
Hope this helps you guys.
