I had the same problem but here is the fix - I contacted Acer support and they steered me to this solution you need a BIOS update. Follow the directions on this page and it will work. It says it may take 1-7 minutes, mine was up and running in just 2. You will need a flashdrive though.

Sansui no signal


Acer produces a number of LCD computer monitors. Acer's monitors range from 17 inches to 27 inches. Some monitors offer wide-screen viewing, embedded speakers, high-definition visuals, and various display connection ports. Acer computer monitor problems include common issues such as dead pixels, error messages, and blank screens caused by incorrect connections. Some reviewers have also detected image problems with DVD playback on some models.

"Input Not Supported" Error Message Acer computer monitors such as the G24 may issue an "Input Not Supported" error message when users set the display resolution too high. The G24's maximum display resolution is 1920x1200 with a 60Hz refresh rate. Maximum resolutions vary according to the specific monitor model and according to the capabilities of the computer's video card. b> "Input Out of Range" b> Some Acer computer monitors may report an "Input Out of Range" error message due to incorrectly set monitor refresh rates. Much like the display resolution, each monitor also has specific monitor refresh rates with which it is compatible. Blank Screen or "No Signal" Error b> Like other monitors, Acer computer monitors feature color-coded power indicator lights. If the power indicator light shows green, the contrast or brightness levels may be set too low and should be adjusted via the OnScreen Display. If this does not rid the monitor of a black screen, the monitor may be experiencing hardware failure. The "No Signal" or "Check Cable message" may indicate a problem with the monitor's cable connection with the video card. This error may also appear on a blank screen backdrop if the monitor is plugged into the incorrect port on the computer or if the computer is frozen and needs to be rebooted. Faulty power cords or outlets may cause the screen to be black and to show no power indicator color. b> Image Issues b> Some review sites such as CNET have reported problems with streaking and ghosting during DVD playback on some Acer computer monitors such as the AL1931. (A "ghost" is an identical offset image as the primary or desired image.) Unstable or unclear image issues may be caused by incorrectly programmed VGA timings or incorrectly installed monitor drivers. b> Dead Pixels b> Dead pixels and sub-pixels can cause a variety of display enjoyment problems. Acer will only accept returns on LCD computer monitors that have "more than four (4) defective pixels per million pixels." Further, the central area of the monitor may have no more than one defective pixel. Acer does not differentiate in warranty terms between pixels and sub-pixels. Hope this helps.

Monitor turns black


As you had stated that the monitor is working if the power brick is off.The back light shutdown might be a cause of static from your power brick, or other thing is it might be your setting for back light level or power scheme.Some configuration needs to open BIOS settings.To check if the power brick is the cause of problem is good to have a known good one or try to monitor if it is charging or not by monitoring the battery indicator if the power brick is off.

Black screen


If the notebook is not displaying anything when powering on, but is still powering on (indicated by the power LED lighting up) then you should consider hooking it up to an external display or monitor to test where the problem stems from.
If, when hooked up, nothing displays on the monitor it is a hardware issue with the either the Hard Drive, System board, or LCD.
If, when hooked up, the screen displays normally on the monitor, it is an LCD problem
If, when hooked up, the screen displays with artifacting, vertical lines, or discoloring, it is an issue with the system board/ Graphics card.

When i turn the power on,on my toshiba satellite l445ds5976 the only thing that comes on is the power indicator light


Hello.

The most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Ultimately, your motherboard could be faulty.

If your system is powering, but no display, connect an external monitor to see if the display itself is the problem. If an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

Hope this helps.

1. Remove the battery & switch on the PC in AC mode.
2. Check if battery charging indication or AC power on indication is glowing. if not then need to change ur motherboard.
3. If indication is OK, but could not power ON then check ur RAM for any loose connection or dust. clean & reinstall.
4. If still no display, connect an external monitor, check if display is comming.
5. If Display is coming then your LCD is faulty and need to replace.

No post and no display


Do you have any indicator light activity at all?

If so, then try hooking up an external monitor.
If it shows display on the screen this would point to video issues (CCFL tube, Inverter, video chip, one or a combination of.)
There is also a key combination to switch between internal display and external monitor. Usually FN key + (little monitor symbol on one of the upper function keys)

If you dont have any indicator light activity then;
Things i would try first.
  1. Check the power adapter for power. (if you have a voltmeter this would be the easiest way) if not, try switching to another outlet
  2. Check your DC power jack to see if there is any freeplay or damage to it. 
  3. If both these check out, then i would unplug dc power adapter from laptop, remove battery, and let the laptop sit for a few minutes. Then hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds. Plug in the DC power jack but dont place the battery back in yet.
  4. Try powering up. if no go, then plug the DC power jack back in and try powering up again. 
If this still doesnt work, and your DC adapter voltage checks good and your DC power jack isnt loose, i would suspect either a charging circuit issue or deeper motherboard related issues. 
Hope this helps

Screen has no power


1. take a flashlight and light on the display after you started the computer and waited for about 5 minutes, if you can see the windows environment the inverter needs to be replaced (normally it's in the display frame under the display)
2. attach an external monitor to the laptop and boot. if the monitor shows something you don't have a defective graphic-card (maybe you must push fn + one of the fn-buttons showing a monitor)

if you don't get anything displayd by an external monitor the graphic-card might be defective - you would need a "new" motherboard then
