Acer Aspire 5610z laptop lcd picture breaking up and going blank

My Acer Aspire 5610z laptop lcd picture is breaking up and going blank after switch on.

I have changed the lcd inverter board and power leads but this has not solved the problem.

It has been possible to gain a picture (with difficulty) by going through makeshift procedures. The makeshift procedures were more effective, the longer the laptop was switched on (when the circuitry has warmed up).


1. When the problem first started happening, swinging the screen back and forth brought back the picture. This has become less effective.

2. The next thing I tried was removing the battery and starting the laptop on its mains supply.
This resulted in the picture coming on for a short period when cold.
3. I removed and inserted the mains supply repeatedly until the picture stayed on.
The picture stayed on for longer but still went off during the desktop loading period.
4. I then went through procedure 3. again and this time inserted the battery when the desktop started loading.
This resulted in the picture staying on for an hour or more but eventually going off again.

All of the above symtoms and procedures had been happening and tried when I used my laptop on my lap.

5. I moved my laptop onto a table with the power supply transformer next to it so there was no possibility of movement.
This resulted in a broken picture for a one or two seconds before going off.
I pulled out the mains supply and reinserted it and switched the laptop on. This resulted in the picture staying on for as long as the power supply was connected.

I understand that the above makeshift procedures are a temporary measure for me, until I find the correct solution.

The symptoms above remind me of intermittant faults caused by dry joints or components on their way out.

I suspect that a voltage that enables the lcd picture, is being impeded by poor conductivity of solder joints or components. The use of the mains supply appears to provide a voltage surge that overcomes obstacle to initiating the picture. The stability provided by the table and inserting the battery appears to provide the voltage stability necessary for maintaining the picture.

As I have said above this is only a tempory measure for me, can anybody please provide the correct solution?

SOURCE: Toner fitted incorrectly


hi jeff, this is a minor repeatable bug yet a great nuisance that will be fully fixed by good house keeping. Simple ABC...

1. Remove All the toners

2. with a spotlight have a look at the far end of the toner cartridge holder drum, i.e peep through the hole left blank after removing the toners.: go through one to the other whilst brushing off dust with a long paint brush. Pay particular attention to the springy looking metal parts deep at the end. (responsible for sensing the toners)

3. On all the toners themselves wipe clean all the metallic parts

this should sought you out 100%

However if you fail or rather you want an overhaul - remove the toners,photoconductor and transferunit. then give your printer a serious blow using the ordinary blower.

SOURCE: Printer shows a paper jam when there does not appear to be one

Often, even after you have removed the paper jam, one of the sensors can still report a "Paper Jam". These sensors look like small plastic "fingers" that project along paper path. More sophisticated printers may have an "electric eye" mechanism. Sometimes when you get a bad jam, the paper has to be ripped out, and a very small piece can get caught on one of the sensors or block the electric eye type sensor. Remove the ink cartridges and shine a light into the machine and look for small pieces of paper stuck inside, and gently remove them. If one of the sensor fingers is bent or jammed, it can cause the same problem. See if any of these are stuck and gently free them. Take care, since they break off very easily. They may also break off if you forcibly pull out a jammed paper. If one of the sensors is broken, then you are out of luck, and will need to buy a new printer. you can also try vaccuming insides with one of those flat nozzles connnected to a regular vaccum cleaner.

SOURCE: error massage not compatible ink cartrage when using ciss supply

The problem here is that Epson actually programs the hardware to recognise if you are not using genuine ink cartridges and the malfunctions you are experiencing are programmed malfunctions, they are not random faults. The .PIF file on the install disk is indeed infected with spector keylogger although after being contacted, epson denies this is true. Spector is very hard to find and was designed to remain hidden at all cost and is the height of keylogger technology even to this day.
Sadly, several versions of epsons' printer/scanners are infected and it appears to be everything made after 2005.
The net is rife with the known problems of epson ink whick appears to be the cheapest on the market but the usuage percentage is in reality much higher than other printers.
My advice is not to buy Epson products, they are unreliable and unsafe.

Aspire 5610z lcd light no working

if you can shine a flash light on the screen and see the picture then there are 2 possibilities 1. bad back light 2. bad inverter (unless it is a led back light) both parts are not to expensive on eBay (search for your model #) the tough part is installing them, if you never have taken a laptop apart you may not want to try, if you do.... take lots of pictures and use a piece of card board to **** the screws into in the position you removed them to help remember were they go.

You could have a defective screen - follow this to determine the fault.

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.

My Acer Aspire 5610z laptop picture is breaking up + going blank

Replace the screen, you can download the pixel tester softwar to figure out if the screen is going bad. I'm pretty sure it is.

If you change the inverter its either the onboard video card on your laptop (usually not replaceable easily) or the screen.
