Acer aspire 3690, screen all black. haven't dropped

Hi The screen suddenly went green then red with vertival lines. Turned off and went black. cannot see. Left for two hours and tried again all ok for 5 mins. Switched off and tried following day. Log on screen came on fine then the vertical liens on green back ground. Want to connect to other laptop via vga cables to determine if it is the screen/backlighter/inverter. When connected I do not see the image from the damaged commuter. Do I have to press a combination of keys on the damaged laptop first? Does anyone know and also any ideas what could be up with it?
Thanks

i would assume somebody has to open the Laptop and reflow your logic board, if that fails your logic board has to be replaced. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there is a third party Acer Repair Service. However, if you want to do it yourself, the part is available on ebay. Here's an Acer Repair guide. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you.

You must have hit the screen and damaged it, that's the only way you get those colored lines. Contact Acer tech support for assistance in replacing the LCD. You will have to go through a bit to get a phone number. http://secure3.tx.acer.com/findsystem/FindSystem.aspx?title=Contact+Support&brand=Acer

Acer Aspire 3690 remove the screen


There screws all around the lcd that are hidden by black rubber / plastic.

Examine the plastic and you'll see them. Pop them off with a straight blade screwdriver.

Then just unscrew all the screws. Most use only 4-6 screws.

Once they are all out. Carefully pull the plastic housing off with your hands. You shouldn't have to use much force so try to be gentle.

Afterwards you should be able to take it from there. There will be brackets holding the lcd in place.

Take those out and then remove the lcd cable from the back of the screen and the inverter from the bottom portion of the lcd.

Swap the lcds and put everything back together.

That should do the trick.

Let me know if you get stuck.
