I have the same problem like some othere ppl.When I start Minecraft and logg in it gets black screen.Any fix for it?
Thank you SKLord.
Did you try to get a mod and it black screened? or you just start it and it black screened?
The same here.
I don't understand why does this happen if it's not because of a defectuous update. I can't see neither why could be this issue related to the server's down state.
hey guys i just experienced the same problem just update your icon by clicking the force update button
Check this video:
It's a fix for the black screen issue.
I replaced the files as it's said in the video tutorial and now I can play again. :)
I recently have the problem and tried everything... then what i did is (for windows) right click, go to properties, in the general tab at the bottom it says something about security, press unblock then apply then ok, hope it works
I got the same problem. But nothing works. Delete "version", re-download, nothing...
Can someone help me?
Ah ha! Go to the minecraft folder!(hidden folder D:/username/app data/minecraft.) Delete the .bin folder go to the website and click 'play in browser' Worked for me! it redownloads .bin file and fixes it!
u said you knew how to fix the black screen. it works until i click single player and then it freezes, goes black for one second and then quits. is that the black screen were talking about? if so, please tell me how to fix it.
No my black screen was just after logging in... perhaps try re-downloading it? Maybe try what I did if you haven't? Sorry if that doesen't help
YOU ARE A GOD! You do not have to play in browser, when you open the launcher, it automaticly downloads the bin file :D Very nice of you! (PS: You do NOT loose your files by doing this :D)
Are you using windows blinds and all? If so unload your theme and give it a try, i also noticed some mods give a black screen if you install them wrong.
I've tried a lot of different fixes, but after a while I found that installing Java Runtime Environment fixed everything for me. Here is the 64-bit version:
If you are recieving a black screen after logging in, replace your minecraft jar with a backup wich everyone should have considering this game is a beta. common sense
I found something out u dont have to replace ur bin or anything like that just press the force update button. It replaces ur bin and gives u a new one for u.
ive tried all these things, deleted .bin, deleted .jar, forced update, updated java, ran as admin, ran in XPSP2 compatibility mode. i still get a blank screen right after login, or if i run from my computer instead of browser, the program just closes.
Umm I know this is kind of an obvious thing but you would be surprised of the people who miss this. You need to have an up-to-date graphics driver to cooperate with java. I'm not just talking about going to windows and checking for updates I mean if you have a Nvidia graphics card go to their site and download the latest drivers. Same with AMD if you have an on board AMD graphics processor go to their site and download the latest drivers (make sure its the graphics driver, not the processor driver, which is usually ATI).
That black screen may be a result of you trying to change something in the minecraft folder, or downloading a mod but put it in the wrong place. This happened to me once so if you did recently get into the minecraft folder, im guessing this is you problem.

I DON'T WANT YOUR DAMN LEMONS!WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THESE?!?!DEMAND TO SEE LIFE'S MANAGER!
Im having a black screen to!!! Can you play minecraft classic in minecraft.net because i can't ????
this worked for me. I got the black screen suddenly after I updated my version to the 16.whatever and i couldn't get into it. The fix that worked for me was getting rid of my texture pack. I think maybe that if you've updated to the 16.0 version then your 15.0 version texture pack will mess up Minecraft. Hope this helps.
Can anyone send me the bin in zipped mode so i know wich classes there where?
I had this problem too, just click the start button for windows 7 or vista, type %appdata% then open roaming folder, then click .minecraft and then delete the "bin". Then open minecraft and it will create a new bin an it will work. The only problem is that it will delete all of your mods
It worked with me. You must only delete the bin. Not the whole folder.
Tried to delete just the bin folder... still black screen after "update". ;(
Tried again to see if i could get in and now it was able to play :)
when i do classic in browser it just says running applet
If you got the blackscreen after installing mods you have obviously installed it wrong, which causes blackscreen. Make sure when you install a mod you delete the meta-inf folder in your minecraft.jar folder which is inside your bin folder inside your .minecraft folder.
I've tried every single fix out there, and 2 different vid cards. Can't get it to work on my native computer, only via browser.
im having the same problem. ive deleted my bin folder, but when i go to the launcher, it says 'not downloaded', and also, when i go to the web version, it just says there was a error and extits me out of it :( please help
you have to redownload it because the bin folder is where minecraft is located :P
i dont think i can redownload itr because the minecraft webiste id down :(
still isnt working, anyone else have any help?

have you tried deleting the java temporary files..but first uninstall all jave from control panelWindows 7 and Vista - Uninstall Programs
You may need administrator privileges to remove programs.
Windows XP - Uninstall Programs
now delete all java temporary files.. delete all files in folder 6.0 in this example..
Windows 7 java temporary files location.
the locations may be different for your operating system!!..now restart your computer and reinstall the latest java..
now try reinstalling minecraft..
hope this helps with some peeps
peace, love & repect
The black screen is 9 out of 10 times due to either running a mod and it isn't working right, or a corrupt jar file. Try running the client without mods. Also, go get digiex Mcvtool it will allow you to not only run minecraft but also download jars as you need them...
look at when this guy last visited the forums
i checked through and there are no really relevant recent comments so this gets LOCKED
