Troubleshooting screen inverter and backlight on acer 5738

You are right! the inverter is the likely problem, unfortuneately unless you have another screen there is no reliable way of testing, the inverter puts out at least 1000 volts and don't attempt to check with a meter it will probably get damaged.

My laptop comes on but screen is blank. Nothing shows up pitch black

it is most likely either your backlight tubes, or the backlight tube circuit board needs replacing. backlight tubes can be obtained off of ebay from a gentleman in oklahoma city oklahoma.

Black screen my acer computer just stop showing anything on it...all memory is intact but nothing else shows

looks like you have lcd backlight lamp bad, you can try connecting external monitor to make sure the computer boots up, also you can use flashlight to shine directly on lcd screen to see if there are any images showing, if that works you can order backlight lamp from ebay replace it and enjoy ;) if you never fixed electronics before do not try to do it yourself, find somebody who knows how to do it, it is tricky

My acer 9300 when switched on shows a blank screen (black with some faint white back ground) but the process of starting windows goes normally coz i can view this when connected to a monitor whats a miss ?...

If you see a very dim image or black screen or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

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 screen showing with my ACER ASPIRE 4060 SERIES 15.4

It's most likely the inverter and not the backlight. eBay is the best destination for the parts unless Acer will sell them to you directly but that is not likely. Another option would be to go to an Acer authorized service centre and purchase the parts through them, Acer's Spanish or UK sites should like the authorized shops. Another option is to purchase a broken laptop that is selling for parts that has a known good inverter and pulling the part from it. You may be able to sell off the rest of the parts on eBay afterwards.

If the screen appears dark with only a faint image or picture and the brightness can't be adjusted then it is likely that the screen backlight is not on - the backlight is like a very thin flourescent tube that runs along the bottom of the screen and provides the illumination. The backlight tube may be faulty or the small electronic inverter unit that powers the backlight tube may have failed. Occasionally the backlight is off because the little switch that is used to detect the screen lid being closed is broken or stuck in. If your backlight is faulty, some engineers will replace it - but it is more common that the entire screen is changed. If it is the inverter they can usually be replaced from ebay.

Carefully open the screen lid and look at the back of the screen there is a type number [like LTN15ox3] you can then obtain a replacement screen from ebay searching for this type number.
However if the screen only shows a faint dark image the fault could be the screen inverter that powers up the backlight tube in the screen.
