The backlight is incorporated into the lcd panel itself. it's not a stand-alone part so the whole lcd display needs to be replaced. In our service department, this part will cost you over $350 Canadian dollars. With the age of the laptop taken into consideration, it may be better in the long run to connect the laptop to an external monitor and look at a new laptop. You can remove the display panel to do this if you like, but be aware that the wireless antennas are in the display panel, so you will have to remove the antenna wires from the display panel or use a usb wireless card.

If you want to get a part number and price, contact acer directly.

Hope this helps :)

Screen went blank or out


9 times out of 10 this is the backlight system going out. Either the backlight source (bulbs) or thier power supply. If you look at it when the computer is turned on you will see the desktop but very ghost like. You might have to get close and to one side to see it. If you are handy you can repair some monitors with a repair kit. The repairable ones have the backlight systems on seperate boards so you can just unplug the old one and put in the new one. Basically you can count on spending around $100 to repair it. So the first thing you need to do is check to see if you have any warrenty at all. If you don;t then you need to look at the replacement cost of a new monitor verse the repaired monitor cost. Usually the new monitor is as cheap and has the benefit of a new warrenty.

My view sonic monitor gat very dark. can still see but very dark. do I need a new monitor ? was fine last night and this morning had problem. I didn't shut down over night.


It sounds as though either the backlights or the inverter(which supplies power to the backlights) has gone. If you can still see the desktop but only if you look closely and it is very dark, then the monitor will need repairing or replacing. If it is the invertor it can be done at a resonable cost - if it is the backlight it would probably not be worth repairing. Also it will cost just for an engineer to check it out.

SCREEN GOES BLACK AFTER A FEW SECONDS AFTER TURNING MONITOR ON.


More often then not, this is attributed to a failing Backlight Inverter. A Backlight Inverter, is a power board mounted below the screen that actually send power to the Lamp inside the LCD itself. Check to see, when it goes out if there isn't still some images faint in the screen. If this is the case take it to a local repair shop and have them order one and replace it. repair cost for this shuold be around 65-100 dollars.

If this helps, please rate my solution. Have a great day.

The screen is black but if you look hard you can see the background very lightly


Hi, your monitor's backlight is burned out or malfunctioning. The LCD monitor consists of two major parts - the LCD panel where images are created, and the backlight which forces light to pass through the LCD panel so you can see things. Your backlight is out. Viewsonic has great warranty support and service. You should contact them, provide them with the serial number, and they'll probably repair it under warranty for you. This is a hardware malfunction, so it needs to be repaired.

I was told that the backlight on my monitor was burned out. Can this be replaced without having to send it off somewhere? Where can the replacement light be purchased


First off it could be the backlight bulb or the LCD inverter. I would try the LCD inverter first it will cost about $25 and is easy to get to Take the face plate off around the monitor and the LCD inverter is at the bottom. It looks like a strip of circut board with plastic coating over it. Most of the time it is the LCD inverter.

But if its the Backlight bulb you might be able to take it to a local tv repair shop. you can order the backlight bulbs online but they are gragile and tricky to replace. you have to seperate the layers of glass on the screen abd the backlight will be at the top inbetween the layers of glass. If you do decide to do make sure to wear rubber gloves because the oiles from your fingers will get inbetween the glass layers and cause foggy spots when you put it back together.

Hope this helps

What kind of computer is it?

No display


The LCD backlight is most likely faulty. If you look at the LCD screen to one side you could see a slight video image, provided the video card is working. To check if the video card is working connect the laptop's video output connector to an external monitor and then boot up your laptop. If you get an image on the monitor, then the problem is with the laptop's LCD display.
As I stated it could be the backlight or a faulty invertot that powers the backlight or it could be the cable/s that connects the LCD to the motherboard.
Try reseating these cables (requires dismantling the laptop).
If this doesn't work then you have a faulty LCD and needs to be replaced. Alternately if cost is too expensive, just use the laptop with an external monitor.

You my friend have a bad backlight. Inside thes LCD monitors there a little tiny flourecnet lights that help the LCD project the images so that you can see what is being displayed. Sounds like your backlight has gone bad. These can be repaired, but can be costly! These things happen often times, 90% of the time I am replacing the backlights to various monitors. Sorry, but I am certain it is your backlight!

- lcd backlight inside the lcd, or the inverter itself. Can you see a very faint image? - Very hard to tel if it's backlight or inverter, or both. Each part costs about $30. Backlight: www.lcdpart.com inverter: ebay Labour is not included, but will cost roughly $75. Still much cheaper to repair than to buy new parts from nanufacturer.
