Backlight failure HP DV1010

A few days ago the computer told me that there was a fatal error with the video card, and then when i reset it the computer worked just fine... so i uploaded the latest drivers for the card, per the computer's recommendation. now the backlight doesn't work at all; the screen is still there, but no backlight, so it is next to impossible to see what is going on on the screen. i can tell it's still there, and i can still do things, just you can't see the screen.

If it is the inverter, it is an easy and inexpensive fix. One of my DV1010US screens did the same thing and I was able to fix it in less than 20 minutes after the part arrived. No mercury hazard since you only remove the front plastic frame of the LCD.

- Download the service manual for the DV1000 for free on the Web.
- Purchase a *new* inverter board off the internet.
- Follow the few steps needed to disassemble to get at the old inverter. (You do NOT need to take the whole LCD apart... merely the front frame assembly.)
- Unplug and unscrew the old inverter then plug in and screw down the new one.
- Reassemble the DV1000.
- Power up and see if it did the trick!

For the low price of a new inverter and a little patience, you can probably fix it. This reply was typed with the DV1010 on which I replaced the inverter.

You need a new screen or inverter, depending on the problem. You can't replace the backlight itself because it is build into the LCD panel. Using a mercury reaction, it makes light. Because of the mercury, it is also dangerous to replace.

That will generally indicate a major system problem on just about any PC. On your PC it should be indicating an issue with the video subsystem. These problems are not always fatal so it might be as simple as pulling the power and battary for a full system reset or you might need to do a firmware reset. at any rate I am not an expert on Acers so hear is a link to the Acer help site with the exact error you are having and they did get it fixed. take a look.

Fatal Error Message


I have an older one of these with the AV connections. once in a while it does not see GPS signals. If I exit navigation and from the main menu select setup, I can reset the GPS and then go back into navigation, this seems to cure the issue but it may return. I think the root cause is a low memory battery in the unit.
