Hi,

Based on your description, the problem could either be:

  • CCF (cold cathode florescent) lamp; and/or
  • inverter.
Since the Acer AL1512 works fine except dark, we can rule out the video interface, power supply and ontroller. Again, the display showing (even dimly) is significant, it tells us that the components are working except that for some reason and most likely it is heat related. Possibly a cold solder, a loose connection and/or a dried up capacitor. You could actually verify this be shining a flashlight diagonally across the screen and some semblance of the desktop albeit dark would be slightly visible.

What is required is opening the LCD lid/panel to perform repairs. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

17" flatron crt monitor only green led blinking and tick tick sound .No display


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.

I have problem with hp monitor 1901W display problem how can solve


Hook a spare monitor to the pc to rule out the video graphics card, if okay! the HP monitor has a serious issue, just to be sure! change the video cable from the monitor to the computer, if no change! the monitor will need to be repaced. There is a large circuit board on the back of the LCD it processes the video, colour, brightness and more and is apart of the display.

I have a Dell laptop D505. The laptop powers up but the screen display is very dim. I can't see the image on the monitor. I've tried to manually increase the color/brightness button and nothing changes. ...


Sounds like your inverter or your backlight is failing. The inverter is an easy repair, the backlight can be replaced but it involves taking the LCD panel apart, The backlight comes installed on new screens. I can include a service manual below and possibly a generic guide to backlight replacement....

Dim display in samsung monitor


When the LCD monitor display is dim or flickers and or has a black screen then the fault is usually a faulty inverter or the CCFL lamp. When you look at the screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim image then it is a backlight problem and it is caused by a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp.
