Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
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.
call me 601-341-8594
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.
