A 19" Philips LCD prefers a setting of 1440X900 if you are too far off this it will turn itself off.
Right click on the desktop, go to settings and set it to 1440X900 and then go to advanced and make sure the refresh rate is set to 60 Hertz. Shining a flashlight on the screen will help you see.

There other thing that might be causing this is the setting on the monitor itself. Press the Menu button on the LCD and adjust the brightness and contrast.

If all else fails, contact Philips. This is a premium brand and it comes witha 4 year warranty.

Acer Aspire 5610. LCD very dim all of a sudden.


That sounds just like an inverter problems. There is a slim chance the bulb could be a problem, but I would replace the inverter. It is not too hard to do, no soldering involved.

You have to remove the screw covers on the frame of the LCD frame, and then carefully pop off the frame. The inverter should be on the bottom center of the screen.

Be careful, there is a high voltage in that little baby. Just get the full numbers, and do a search on the internet and buy yourself a new inverter to replace the old one.

Monitor is blank!!!!


Firstly, the LCD+external setting will switch one or the other or both on.

Secondly, if you go into your display properties (or even the advanced page where your video card additional features are) you can usually select which monitor is "primary".

I suspect that your external display is primary, and the LCD screen is not "enabled" or used as part of the desktop.

The settings are all there, it's just a matter of finding them (depending on what video card is in whatever laptop you have)

This might have happened in the first place if you accidentally hit "Fn" and one of the "F" keys up the top. Fn + F6 on my laptop will switch LCD/external monitors on and off. (for example) There is usually a little blue picture on one of the "F" keys to denote that function.

Black screen


One way to test it is to connect a monitor to the VGA port (make sure to activate the external monitor (Fn+monitor key)
If it does work on the external monitor, I would look at replacing the onboard LCD.
If it doesn't, you are looking at problems with the onbaord video.
