There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you aren't tech savvy, this unit needs to go in for repair.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for different brand, but same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Sounds like it is probably the inverter board. You can find one on eBay, they are usually the problem, not the backlight or screen. Simple change usually and you are good to go. Very inexpensive too, search ebay for inverter board acer P241W, or I have gone to laptopaid.com too.

Do you have any cloud backup set up with Google? if so you should be able to get your images and docs from google website on a computer. also if you have a microSD card you might want to try seeing what you can retrieve of of it.

As soon as you power on your PC, start pressing the F2 key. This should bring up the BIOS (Basic Input Output Systems) screen. Make sure your Hard Drive is listed in the Boot order. Usually a CD drive is listed first, then the Hard Drive as a second boot device. If you do not see the Hard Drive listed, then it probably is bad and needs replacing. If it is listed correctly in the boot order, your Operating System has crashed, and you will need the recovery disks or the instalation disk for your Operating System (XP, Win7,etc.)

try a new battery yet, all time #1 failure off all portable devices
is that....
when a PC sees the battery weak it dims the screen
that is a FEATURE, and allows you to run longer.
so if the battery is bad and overloads the power regs.
then it dims,

or the battery is only low, recharge it yet, even overnight?

Hello, Angela.
Don't you just hate when this happens?
so it just did this just today, ran for 12 years?
this PC, is 12 years old today. no spring chicken there.
I needs service, is that not obvious?
it's a double failure !!!
the CCFL lamps are dead in the base unit top screen.

those CCFL lamps are old and most did this long ago.

now the extra Monitors is used, on the VGA port.
and it works great, but windows is dead.
XP is virus magnet, that came with this PC.
and is DOOM things, now.
so is that old 12 year old HDD, doomed.
most never last over 5 years let alone 12.

what we do is run hard drive tests first.
wasting time and money on 12year old PCs is problematic, for sure TIME.
we can always find more money but no the sands of time.

WE run Linux demo boot media to test any PC made.
(we use the USB port to do that, faster)
We use this. (we means all savvy techs do this)
ok?

but first and always run this laptop on AC power only and with that old and now worse shorted battery removed first. get it the heck out of there now and first. and can do that forever.
but for now out it goes, until the PC runs right a again'

this PC has street value of $12.
sold on ebay used, so
buying a new $100 CCFL screen and new $50 hdd and then buying windows gain, is not wise is it.
$100 saddle on $5 horse (econ101)?
In this case $270 saddle on $12 horse, a bad idea?
CCFL _are the LCD back lamp tubes that are now dead. (
did this just happen?
or found this PC for $5 in garage sale?
no history stated, or even OS upgrades.

We run linux
then if hdd fails, we do econ101.
a chromebook for $100
or dump hard earned cash on this 12 year old junk class PC?

make boot USB stick, load Ubuntu on it
boot it and click TRY ME. this is DEMO mode.
only, and run smart tests


http://www.pcdied.com/linux.html


what we do is first test the PC, using simple methods
and what will be, will be...

But #1 is econ101
how much do you want to spend on $10 PC
that is always first out the gate.?
labor and parts and time wasted.?(even down time)
all that matters.

Constant beep is an error code. It could be a code for bad ram, but it more than likely sounds like a video card error. Do you have anything on the screen?
