Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

3 Answers

No screen showing with my ACER ASPIRE 4060 SERIES 15.4

A few weeks ago i powered up my acer laptop, and the screen was blank, although if i looked closely in the light i could see a very weak image .
I think it is the inverter or backlight, as i do have power to the laptop, but it does switch off after a few minutes, but i cannot see what is happening due to the black screen
i took a chance and ordered a backlight from hong kong through e- bay, but it never arrived, and i am still waiting 3 weeks later.
I cannot find any other supplier that stocks these parts
I live in spain , but i am from the uk, and would be able to have a part delivered to an address there, if i can find the relevent replacement part
Thank you in advance
Terry

    I now realise it is probably not the backlight after connecting up my desktop screen to the laptop, and still getting a blank monitor.

    I have stupidly just ordered another backlight from y'all store for $28 inc postage to the uk, and have the original one from hong kong pending.I should have tried the hookup first

    Can anyone suggest what the fault might be now, discounting the backlight?

    Many Thanks

Thank you all for your suggestions, but by an amazing coincidence i have accidentally cured the problem
Underneath the laptop monitor, on the far right of the r/h hinge, there is a small lever that shuts down the computer when the monitor is closed
I was prodding this with a pencil tip unintentionally, and i must have released it from a stuck position.
The screen is now live and working

It might still be the inverter or the backlight. The thing is that on the Laptop you can see a dim image and on the monitor it's completely blank, which leads me to think that the laptop isn't "pushing" the video signal to the monitor at all, or you'd see something on it. The two issues are different. Most laptops have a Fn+[Fkey] to switch to an external monitor. Make sure you are doing this or starting the laptop with the monitor attached to insure that the laptop is producing an image to the external output.

The Machine is probably right. It still sounds like an inverter/backlight problem moreso than something on the system board.

It's most likely the inverter and not the backlight. eBay is the best destination for the parts unless Acer will sell them to you directly but that is not likely. Another option would be to go to an Acer authorized service centre and purchase the parts through them, Acer's Spanish or UK sites should like the authorized shops. Another option is to purchase a broken laptop that is selling for parts that has a known good inverter and pulling the part from it. You may be able to sell off the rest of the parts on eBay afterwards.

My Acer Aspire V5-571 does not load up it shows acer screen when turning on the laptop then loading floating ball comes on screen for a few seconds then black screen ? can any one please help ?


Hi Jim,

this seems like a no boot / no video kind off issue and mostly is coz of corruptions in softwares or drivers, try booting the computer in safe mode. if it does, then take a data backup. i would not recommend experimenting in this issue as it can crash the computer.
hence call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

There is a known issue with a BIOS bug in some of the Acer models that it prevents charging. Try upgrading the BIOS from Acer online to the latest version following the online instructions.

Try removing the battery and plugging the machine in as if you were going to charge it, then try starting it up.

If it doesn't start up, check the connections on the adapter. If everything looks fine then theres a possibility that you have a broken adapter.

Acer One Screen Won't Come On--


Hey,

if this computer is still under warranty you can contact acer to get a replacement or repair for it.

If you are outside of warranty there are a few things we can try, one unplug the battery and ac adapter for 15 minutes, plug in the ac power and try starting up.

if that doesn't work, call acer and confirm your warranty. if you don't have warranty we can try other things. if you do have warranty and the repair is free, use it.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

I have the same problem. It happened to me about half a year ago and reinstalling the OS solved it. So it's by no chance a hardware problem. I have a Acer TravelMate 6291. It must be some kind of a software problem, but don't know which one :-(
