No if it was the backlight bulb it wouldn't stay on for five minutes. Could you replace it yourself, maybe it would be an advanced repair.

The problem to me sounds like it is the powersaver setting, right click on the desktop goto properties
goto the screen settings tab and click the power button. then set it up to turn off when you want it too.

Acer aspire 3610 graphic or battery problem?


It sounds like your backlight is damaged. On some units this can be replaced on its own. On others, it requires the entire LCD to be replaced. I'll see if I can find out which this is, in your case, and find you a part number.

Dark laptop screen inverter and lamp ok


It might be necessary to send it in to Acer for their technicians to look at it as they have parts there. The damage of the display panel many have damaged other parts as well I would suspect the ribbon cable that feeds the display from the main body section. Is power getting to the inverter? Look at the items you have not compared with the other unit such as a ribbon cable- what else is there?

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)

Your screen inverter is bad, or your backlight lamp. (The Backlight Lamp is a CCL. Cold Cathode Lamp. Resembles a very small, thin fluorescent bulb)

How to replace an inverter in an Acer Aspire 4315? I can't find you the exact manual at the moment. HOWEVER, I can give you a link to manuals that are close to the Acer Aspire 4000 Series laptops.

I have found through the years, that many laptop makes and models, are very similar, when it comes to disassembly, of the entire laptop, or just the LCD screen. These manuals are for various models of Acer Aspire laptops,

And,

Look online for Screen Inverter and also Backlight Lamp, for your Acre Aspire. There are many places that sell them. (Average price for the lamp, ranges from $8.99 to $14.99, or so)

Acer aspire 3600 laptop screen black


Hi,

Sorry for the delay, yes I sorted it out - Basically the backlight had gone in my LCD screen, you have 2 options....1. Buy a backlight off eBay and try and fit it yourself (Very tricky, risk of damaging the screen or 2.Get yourself a relacement screen, this is what I opted to do, found a secondhand screen on eBay for £7.50 and fitted it myself - Works a treat....!

Big tip: If you can't find your model on eBay, look for a brand new screen and it will have in the listing compatible models, then look for a used one on eBay for that different model, my laptop is a 4150 and got a used screen from an Acer 3000,

Hopoe this helps...!

Cheers

Screen goes dark


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

ACER ASPIRE LCD TROUBLE!!


If the screen appears dark with only a faint image or picture and the brightness can't be adjusted then it is likely that the screen backlight is not on - the backlight is like a very thin flourescent tube that runs along the bottom of the screen and provides the illumination. The backlight tube may be faulty or the small electronic inverter unit that powers the backlight tube may have failed. Occasionally the backlight is off because the little switch that is used to detect the screen lid being closed is broken or stuck in. If your backlight is faulty, some engineers will replace it - but it is more common that the entire screen is changed. If it is the inverter they can usually be replaced from ebay.
