Faded out Acer LCD screen

I have had some issues with my LCD screen & had it replaced about 1 year ago (it went psycodelic). Now the screen is really faded out. I will be sending it back to Acer (thank goodness we bought the extended warranty), but I was wondering if there is a way for me to set the "contrast/brightness"? I am not REAL computer savy, but I can muddle through step by step instructions.

To set brightness, try the following.

press the function key (bottom left hand side on your keypad)
then tap the brightness key (just under your numerical keys with a little sun and + mark on it) this should sort your prob

It's not a contrast / brightness issue, even at the lowest setting the screen would look normal and probably not the way you're seeing it now. It's likely that the inverter or backlight went out on the lcd. You could possibly turn them up the highest level, but it would still need to be serviced by Acer for it to work correctly.

Glad to hear you've got the extended warranty.

Best of Luck!

Acer 4745g black screen problem


So, if you can hear startup sound then motherboard, RAM and HDD is OK! Try to connect it with external monitor, if it's working on it, then problem in LCD, LCD light or LCD cable. If not working with external monitor then it is video card problem, if card is integrated then you need to reball or change at all south bridge on the motherboard, if video is as module card then just replace it with compatible one.
If LCD cable - disassemble laptop to get LCD cable and test each wire with any multimetr with sound beep and replace it if needed.
If LCD light - try to take LCD screen under good lamp then power on laptop and carefully look to dark screen if you see very dark Windows boot screen then you need to disassemble LCD housing, disassemble LCD, remove and replace LCD lamp with working one.
If all this cant help, then you need to replace LCD at all.

I've had a similar issue with my Samsung screen awhile back. It should be that your monitor's power supply unit has degraded and needs replacement. You will have to send it to Samsung for repairs.

Hello,

This is a power supply inverter issue. Your monitor has a 3 year warranty, you need to contact Acer to have the unit serviced under the warranty plan.

I have two Acer monitors that the on/off keeps flashing and nothing comes up on the screen. I don't think I will buy another one. I tried to save money and have only had these two monitors for less than...


Acer has a 3 year coverage on the LCD Monitors.
I have seen this before the power supply inside the screen has went bad.

I would contact Acer Support 1-800-816-2237.
You will have to pay for shipping just so you know.

I hope this helps please let me know..

Friend, try to replace the battery. If it doesn't work try to press firmly the LCD connection interface underneath the screen because such unit has lossen connection.use T6 screwdriver to open the unit then slowly firmly press the LCD connector on the interface. Such thing will solve the problem. good luck

Faded screen with lines across screen


hi Jenredd, i think there is something wrong with ccd, if so it is serious... . I experienced some disturbed picture on lcd or whole black lcd due to ccd problem. As u said you pictures are fadded it means may be ccd is damaged. If so you have to replace the ccd at any authorised repairer for fuji. as you mentioned other problem there is nothing common between both. for that i suppose there is some problem in either usb socket or cord , so first check the cord, if it is ok then we can doubt on usb socket. But in both the way you have to go to Fuji . good luck
