Question about Acer Aspire 3690-2196 Notebook

1 Answer

VERY DARK Screen (more info inside)

I'm working on an Acer Aspire 3690-2196 and it suddenly just gave me a very dark screen. 
I attached my flatscreen monitor, and I have output via the external.
I've also checked the switch that turns the screen off when the screen is shut and it is fine. 
The only way I can get full bright display on the laptop is using the Function+F6. Sometimes this will last for a while before doing dim, others only for a second or two. 
I have also noticed a flickering, which leads me to believe the backlight is going out. 
Anyone else had this happen to them?

Its not the inverter, it's your backlight. Hard work to change, sorry, and it might be cheaper/quicker to replace the whole lcd panel at $100 (£65)

The Back-light on your LCD screen is bad, your crystals aren't illuminating, so it is dark.... very dark.

You need a new LCD screen.

Sorry.

The problem is with your Switch. Contact Service Center. It is not sounding a big problem.
