Acer 4920 Screen fades

My Acer 4920 Aspire, a great machine normally. Monitor has begun fading every so often and can be solved by taking out the AC lead then replacing it. It is then okay for a while then happens again. Could be a power problem but very frustrating

    Well it is darker than if it was in powersave mode, so dark in fact I find it difficult to read the screen. So yes darker than on battery or powersave.

    I agree that this could be a power problem. It may be a bad connection between your AC adapter and your notebook. If you can, try another AC adapter and see if this clears your problem.

    There are different profiles in the power options in control panel for when the notebook is on/off AC charge. If you have a look at this, you will see that the brightness is different between the plan you are on for when you are on/off battery power. Does it look like you are on battery power when the monitor loses brightness?

I have acer laptop 5750G. It has a very dim light. tried to adjust the brightness but to no avail..

One thing that I can suggest to you that may save you money is to try a external monitor rather than repairing it at the moment.

My Hp notebook screen is black,sometimes it fades in and out black to grey then to can i fix it

Connect your laptop to an external monitor and switch to monitor. If the external monitor shows the desktop, then the complaint is in the lcd/led display unit means the screen. Replace the screen. If the external monitor also shows the complaint, then it is normally due the mch(media controller hub) . It comes as separate card unit in some models and onboard for some other models.Only an experienced technician can solve that issue. In some rare cases it is due to a corrupted BIOS. Reply if this helped you.

Dear sir, i am using acer aspire 5738 .last day its colour became a fade with red colour and now the display is not woring , can i get a remedy for the same and if replacement is required , how much it...

Well the problem will determine the cost. Try to connect an external monitor to the laptop. If the external monitor displays a normal screen then it's the LCD and the cost of replacing the LCD will average about 175.00 but if the external monitor also has the same problem as the LCD on the laptop then it's a much bigger problem, and the problem is the video chip on the motherboard. You will have to replace the motherboard. But the price that I quoted may be different in your area.

My Acer Aspire One screen is faded. How do i correct this error?

Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

Laptop ACER Aspire 4920 Screen goes dim.

there is a configuration of each one of the three plans of energy, and there you can change the time the screen is on when plugged or unplugged, the brightnes, and some stuff more like the wireless. you have to go to "energy option", or something like that... mine is in spanish. and then under each option is the configuration. good luck!!

My Acer Laptop screen fades or goes out when moved

Try reseating the video cable/connector. Also connect an external monitor to the external video port, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video image should automatically divert to the monitor, if you see a normal video image then the video card is OK and the problem most likely the LCD screen.
