If the Acer splash screen shows up, how can the bulb be to blame? I've known plenty of parts that will work intermittenly, but I don't recall any type of bulb to illuminate for only a few seconds and then go dark, only to repeat the cycle when turned off and on again. I also have this same problem with my AL1715...I guess another thing to add is that it always seems to happen after the 'auto-config' is finished doing what it does. That may be the grey rectangle that he mentioned originally. Could there be something else to blame?
FYI - I did check all the caps and their tops are nice n' flat.

Tryconnecting an external monitor to the laptop. You may have to select the videooutput to display on the external monitor by holding down the blue key and pressing the blue CRT/LCD (located on one of the keys, likeF8,F9, etc..). If the problem occurs on the external monitor with the batteryor AC power, then you have a problem with either the video card or motherboardin the laptop. If the problem does not happen using the external monitor thenyou laptop's LCD display is going bad.
Suggest using Acer eRecovery Management to attempt problem resolution as follows...
1. begin with the D250 powered off ...
2. if present, remove any external monitor (unplug its VGA connector from D250 left side)
3. power on and immediately press F2 to enter the BIOS / setup utility
4. using the right cursor key, cursor over to the Main tab of the InsydeH20 Setup Utility
5. if D2D Recovery is not enabled, cursor down to it, press Enter key and enable in pop-up
6. save any changes by pressing F10 to save and exit, otherwise press Esc to just exit
7. press Alt and F10 together while the Acer logo is showing to get entry into eRecovery.
8. eRecovery entry is indicated by message at bottom of screen "Windows is loading files...".
9. if not successful, power off, wait a minute then power on again and immediately
10. press Alt and F10 at the same time - do this several times while Acer logo showing.
11. once in Acer eRecovery Management (V7.0.10) screen, just leave it there........
12. if after a day or so, the screen has not changed, the problem is likely NOT hardware.
13. on the other hand, if your screen problem occurs after awhile, then it is hardware.
14. if it is not hardware, then your Operating System is likely corrupt or has a virus.
15. If it is not a hardware problem, you can completely restore system to factory defaults.
16. board level hardware repairs best done by sending D250 to Acer's authorized shops.
You have to switch your laptop to a different display mode. Usually it's done by pressing Fn key and F8 - look for a description near this key showing rectangle / rounded rectangle, or text "CRT / LCD". Usually there are 3 modes: LCD (internal laptop display) only LCD + CRT - the picture shows on both displays CRT - the picture shows only on the external display, allowing you to set a different screen resolution, equivalent to the external monitor's optimum resolution.
have you try replacing the power cord of your LCD monitor? mybe its defective or not properly plug to an AC outlet. check also the source of your power if its working....it from AC outlet there is a voltage present try to replace your power cord connected to your monitor with a new one
I have answered this in other threads but to reiterate.... The Gray rectangle "No Signal" I use a Power Strip and Turn off as soon as it cycles back to Normal screen. It is so much easier then to unplug and Plug back in when it does happen. As for the Newer Problem(s) and I too have had mine for only couple of years... Copied from Previous post This is not a Fix to the Problem, If you read some of the other
"fixes" that relate to this you will see that it is a more serious
problem and one that Acer should Do the Honorable Thing and have a
I actually went in side on three of the Same Monitors and one that was
a 21 inch and found the problem is "HEAT"
You can see where a Board actually shows Browning on the Circuitry I am
Going to try to order a new board P/N:AS08B360411.
I will update as soon as work is completed.
2 possibilities video card is damaged and bleeding ac power from the motherboard or the motherboard is damaged from a power spike and is bleeding ac power into the video card(this would be my best guess based on yur description). that is the best i can do on this info you have given I recommend you take it in to a service center for a definitive answer.
I know exactly what your talking about. I've seen in many times. It' happens too in CRT monitors as well as LCD. It could ALTHOUGH be as simple as a bad cable catching interference. Most likely though, it sounds like a bad LCD driver board or video board. If you have warranty, call it in. Otherwise see if it lessens with adjustments of contrast and brightness up and down. This directly affect the driver board power and can improve it enough to be tolerable again.
