Try using the brightness controls on your keyboard to brighten the screen. If that doesn't work then that means either the lcd or the inverter has gone bad.

I have acer laptop 5750G. It has a very dim light. tried to adjust the brightness but to no avail..


One thing that I can suggest to you that may save you money is to try a external monitor rather than repairing it at the moment.

Reciept side ink not printing


Need a new ink cartridge. Just like any printer they do not last forever before it needs changing and faded ink is classic sign that is the case. Skipped spots but good darkness would indicate some thing is dirty instead but that is not your situation.

Screen is faulty. It divides in equal half and displays well on one side and dims on the other. I can read info on both sides but dim side displays faded colour. External monitor works fine.


Usually not. The circuitry that drives the panel is integrated with the screen.

It's some work but those screens are serviceable and you can often find a good replacement on eBay at a fraction of the cost of a new HP part. A local small computer shop could probably swap it out for you in less than an hour.

Good luck.

How to brighten up my screen, my screen says its up all the way, but its still very dim. & it was fading in and out before,.


Looks like the inverter is on its way out.
Seek the brand service center for replacement as inverters are really hard to find.

Screen gets dim at times.


Backlight is going bad.
Either bulb or whole LCD needs replacement.
But, first start with new/good Inverter Board.

The display has dimmed, and looks washed out (faded)


You most likely have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering 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 replacing the CCFL lamp

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.

No light on screen of acer extensa 4620 4605 PC notebook


Try to find the button that tells the screen to come on. This sticks sometimes on laptops. I always tell people not to use canned air because it only blows dust around, but it could help your problem. If you are okay with taking it apart you can find this button and see if it is sticking. This is becoming a common problem with laptops. I recently had a customer with this problem and it took me some time to figure it out. It is usually around the hinge. Look at the manual if you can't find it.

Screen is dim


Try looking for a function key (usually used by holding down the Fn key and then pressing one of the "F" key at the top) the key will be marked with a brightness indicator.

Is your screen only dim when running off the battery is it dim when running when the charger is plugged in as well. If it is only dim when the laptop is running on battery then this may be caused by a setting in Power Options which is located in Control Panel (that is if your running Windows). In Power Options look for settings about running on AC Power and running on Battery power.
