Question about Acer TravelMate 270XV Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Travelmate LCD light is off

During the past weeks ,after booting, my screen was pink for few seconds.
and sometimes it would go dark.Moving the lid up and down would solve the issue but now, even after replacing the inverter board the screen stays dark. I can see the desktop only under strong direct light. Could it be the connections with the motherboard and if so How can I reach the connection to the mobo?
Could it be the backlight? I bought a new backlight because I want to try the cheapest way.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
thank you very much

Chances it is the lamp. Some lamps are very hard to change. Hopefully yours will be much easier. You did a very good thing changing the inverter first. As you have a 50/50 chance anyway, so now you know it wasn't that. Good luck.

My acer aspire 4320 have no light in the display


You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Acer Travelmate LCD screen went dark


The same thing happened on my HP. I ended up buying a LCD screen off ebay. That corrected the problem. New screens cost $150+. You can get one off ebay for half the price.
