  • RevRafi Feb 22, 2008

    I also have a 5610z Aspire PC Notebook. I hooked it up to a functioning Screen, Pressed the power button,The power light comes on, there is an initial sound of the hard disc trying to boot up, then no sound I tried the FN+F5, move, but the computer does nothing. There is nothing but a black screen.

    Black screen troubles here too. I also can not get the computer to shut off or reboot. So I have unplugged it to let the battery wear out and then I'll try to restart it by plugging it back in. This computer is new to me and has worked properly for 24 hours and now has this error.

    I get a black screen when booting up. I have tried plugging in another screen and this doesn't do it. I've rebooted several times and nothing.

    My screen turns on for a second and then shuts off. I can see that my computer is starting normally. If you take a flash light or something shine it on the screen from the top you can see that the computer is running fine except for the screen. when I shut my screen and open it again the light turns on for a second and shuts off again. I do not know what could have cosed this.

    hi,i hav acer aspire 5710z laptop and camera of laptop is not working.shows "creation of a picture failure." or "Some body use the camera."plz help me

  • thevandams Jul 16, 2008

    My 5610z is doing the same thing. It will quickly flash the ACER screen when it is booting up but then the screen stays dark. If I take it outside, I can see the images and it seems to be working fine....other than not being able to see the images on the screen. From what I can tell by reading the web is it is either the backlight or the backlight inverter. Can someone help me figure out which it is...and how to fix it.

  • pgraboyes420 Sep 27, 2008

FIX:

I have an acer aspire 5520G and i can relate all too well. It worked fine for about 3weeks (from brand new!!) then one day the screen went blank while trying to boot. I managed to fix it and it worked fine for almost 2years, untill i went to sell it and encoutered the problem again.

The Fix: this is the fix that worked for me; firstly the problem; this seems to be a big problem with acers for some reason, and there are a few variations or confusions about it when people describe their fault. My fault is that when my laptop is off, i press the power button and the green light comes on, a fan starts up and there is hope, but then the fan changes speed slightly and it stays like that indefinatley, without the screen having ever come on, and i mean the computer is virtually dead except the power light and fan, you cannot press ctrl-alt-del or see the screen from an angle or with a torch. the only thing you can do is hold the power button and force a shutdown, so some deep seeded hardware is still working, but it seems the display never starts and the BIOS never loads.

My first fix - i managed to start my computer by pressing the power button, then as fast as i can (hold function button) repeatadly press F5 and F6 ie. with the function button held you are pressing [Black out screen/Restore Screen] and [Switch Monitors]. this usually starts my laptop on the first or second attempt. The first time i did this i was playing around with external monitor cables and connections, and switching monitors and the problem spontaneously fixed itself as mysteriously as it had arrived.

Second time was extremely frustrating, i could still load my computer by pressing F5 and F6 combos but could not get it to become self sufficent. I upgraded my BIOS with the Flash Updater from acer (i found it on the net) and after the second boot attempt, windows vista installed some memory drivers, and the problem was resolved.

if this hadnt worked i would have tried the memory battery fix as above, as my problem definatly seemed bios related.

Hope this helps someone from loosing their hair.

I have had a couple of 5610s with corrupt bios causing the unit not to boot or show any screen activity leading you to think the motherboard is faulty, I fixed both these by shorting the bios battery for a couple of seconds. You can get to the battery by removing the access cover over the media card slot then removing a piece of black foam next to the media socket on the motherboard, hiding behind the foam is a small blue bios battery with 2 contacts just visible that you can short out using a small screwdriver. WARNING only do this fix with the main battery removed and no power to the laptop.

    Shorting the battery fixed my problem. Nothing else worked. As soon as I was able to get back on the computer, I went to Acer's website, downloaded the latest bios, installed them, and now I'm good to go. Thanks for posting this. Randy.

Do you hear any sound when you boot the unit? if so the LCD inverter is most likely the case.. Try connecting a External monitor to the unit and boot the unit. If it works you will see a ACER splash screen but then it might go away when it logs into windows.. By pressing the FN+F5 (i think) it will tell the laptop to output all video to the external

The solution was simple for my Acer 3680 black screen ... I simply removed the ram (memory module) panel from underneath the laptop (2 screws) and reseated the ram. In other words, took the memory stick out and put it back in ... Voila ... screen works again!

If you see the led hard disk and power light flickering then you know that the drive is working, so there must be a video or a screen problem. Shine a torch into the screen and if you can see the pc is booting the backlight converter is faulty and needs replacing, if you see nothing; there may well be a video fault or a faulty screen connection.

REMOVE BATTERY.
There can be several things which cause a blank screen on a laptop. You can have your memory go bad. In which case if you only have one stick of memory the screen will go blank. You can have a faulty processor. Unlikely but it does happen. If you say the screen is blank is it really blank??? If the charging light comes on and when you actually switch the laptop on.....Hold the laptop by a window and angle the display? Even try shine a light on the screen? Do you see any image at all? If no image then as another helpful person has mentioned on here....Try the 'INVERTER' its a small board behind the LCD bezel BE WARNED... the inverter board uses high voltage and not sure whether this could kill you but it will definitely give you a hefty shock. To actually get to the INVERTER board the plastics will need to be removed from around the LCD. You may also have to remove the top cover plastics / palm rest and keyboard. When the LCD plastics have been removed........at the base of the LCD you should see a thin board with possibly two connector plugs one at each end and a screw holding it in place. remove the screw and unclip the wires to the board.
Easiest first....replace memory stick? If no luck do at described and if you do not feel confident take to be repaired.
I hope this helps.


Replace with a new inverter board if memory did not do the trick

Is the backlight converter located just below the lcd screen. The LCD cover needs to be removed in order to see the converter.

SOURCE: ACER ASPIRE 5610z BLACK SCREEN

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 ones screen is just staying black and wont reboot what do i do ?


I have the same problem! I received a response to my email telling me to disconnect adapter and battery, hold the power button 30 minutes, connect ac (make sure it's plugged), turn on, wait 1-7 minutes, then attach battery after windows boots. After several tries, it still hasn't worked. When I turn on the system, my power led stays green, but the hdd indicator is not lit. My battery can still recharge, but the screen is still black, and there is no sound.

Acer aspire 5610z will not go into sleep mode, either by closing laptop, or by selecting 'sleep' from Start button. Stays on, but without screen - then has to be turned off and on manually.


Try to go into the energy management settings (by clicking the power mgmt icon in your system tray) and seeing what your sleep settings are. You should be able to customize your sleep settings to do more than turn off the screen.
