Display flickers on acer travelmate 2410

Acer travelmate 2410 display flickers-- was dim and barely visable, replaced inverter last week as recommended by acer support. they told me if any further video problems, I would have to replace screen assembly because the screen cable assembly would be bad and was made into screen. i just need to know if the cable is available seperately and how to test further.I already hooked pc to external monitor and ran a diagnostic cd, the mobo tested good and the screen was clear and did not cause any problems.

So, did the new inverter fix the problem? and, when you were replacing the inverter, did you get to peek at the screen? ok ok, I'll make it easier than that. take your model number and search for "Acer 2410 LCD" on eBay, there are a lot of screens and none of them show a video cable that is glued or soldered to the screen. there are, in fact, a few video cables there as well, so my guess is that they are flat out lying to because 1) to get you to pay too much for repairs 2) because the person at tech support has no idea 3) they are sold together according to their parts list or 4) they really DO go together. My guess is that what they are talking about is a completely new LCD panel INSIDE a lid case with the hinges and bezel and all that. So SURE it's going to look like the cable is included, but if you just pop the back off the lid, it's probably about 10 minutes of work to replace the LCD without replacing the cable. I have to provide 2 caveats to this:

1) Acer is NOTORIOUS for glue. they love the stuff and may well have glued everything together inside the screen case.

2) I have no real experience with this specific model so I'm not sure.

It's just that every other screen ever is pretty much made of the same parts: an LCD screen with a backlight cable and a video input socket, an inverter if it's in the screen, mic, video camera, light, etc if they are in the screen, frame, back of case, and a video cable that goes from the video socket out to the mobo.

IS the display light flickering or the display image? that's important too. Good luck. it's my guess that it's either a bad connection a bad CCFL or was a bad inverter. the cables may have gotten pinched and that could be it too.

Backlight very low making screen dark


You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers 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 replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, 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. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out; usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

If this happened suddenly, the backlight power supply (inverter)  has probably failed. It could be the backlight itself but they normally will dim or flicker before they die.
Try shining a light at an angle on the display with the computer turned on and look at it from an angle too. You may be able to see video very faintly; if you do, then it is as described above; a backlight problem, not the LCD display itself.

you need an inverter board. we can supply you with it if you'd like. let me know if you need more help.

90% of it's the inverter board, the other 10 could be a bad fl tube in the lcd itself.
