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.



    hope this helps

    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?

How to fix graphics on 4920 Acer Aspire win7?


There is no sure fire way to fix your graphics card in the laptop, usually they are soldered chips on the board, but if it still works currently, your best bet would be to take an air compressor or a can of compressed air and blow the dust out thru the side vents (NOT THE BOTTOM, as air flows in from underneath you would just be making it worse) chances are its overheating and causing the issue

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.

My acer monitor image is faded and washed out


Adjust contract and luminosity: decrease contrast, see how it goes.
ACER monitors tend to have control settings that are out of the range for proper viewing.

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.

Color fades at bottom of screen


Although it is possible that your monitor is defect, you should first run a monitor test to see if you just need to adjust some of the settings. Go to this webpage and just follow the instructions.
The test are done best in full screen mode (F11 in most browsers).

Do you have any sources of magnetic fields next to the monitor (speakers, halogen lights, sometimes even a cordless phone can cause distortion).

If you can, connect this monitor to another computer and see if the problem persists. This way you eliminate any hardware related issues (cable, video card).

If you have any more questions (also regarding the results) come back here and leave a comment. I will check back and see what else we can do.

Monitor fades and turns blue


this sounds like a transistor issue concerning the ccfl lamps the power transistors are deteriorating and they will eventually go bad you can have them replaced and that should fix the issue. otherwise I would say have the capacitors that feed the ccfl's may be getting old and need replacement as well, its not something the average customer will want to do but if you have a service center that does electronic repair then that would be bst.
Hope this helps
