Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-FS550P PC Notebook ?
Screen faded into black
\015 My Sony Laptop has absolutely no picture any longer. I cut it off and restarted. The ''VAIO'' letters came up pinkish orange and the faded completely. The computer is running, but won't display a screen . It's like a bulb or picture tube is blown. Can that happen, or what does this sound like. I know nothing about computers. I use it for work, but my son plays sport games on it once in a while.\015
Yes, usually the tubes in the LCD go dead or another cause of this problem is the LCD inverter board that goes dead. I suggest you take it back to where you bought it or to a sony service centre.
