Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

My Acer Aspire One A150 screen is damaged and in inverted colours

I was using my netbook and suddenly the screen turned to inverted colours. I tried to change the settings in windows and when that failed I connected my netbook to a lcd monitor with a vga cable. The screen was fine on the lcd monitor so I have come to the conclusion that the screen is damaged. The screen is inverted colours even at the acer boot screen at the beginning so I know it is not a problem with the operating system.
Has anyone had that problem and if they have were they able to fix it or had to send it of to acer. If you did send your netbook with this problem to acer were they able to fix it, thanks

    I bought this Netbook in march so it is definitely covered under warranty. I had a problem like this when I left it in the car while on Holiday and I got black splodges. I got somebody to replace the screen for me and it was working until now. Do you think this will effect my ability to get a replacement. I have heard bad reviews of the acer technical help, Have you had any experience with them?

    Yes, the guy replaced the lcd screen inside the netbook as it was damaged. Do you think I will have problems getting Acer to fix or replace it as they will know it has been opened. Would it be best to explain the situation to them and hope for the best.

    Thanks

    For sure this is due to hardware damage or problem with cable.. How old is you netbook ?
    Acer will be able to fix it. Are you still covered by warranty .? (u'll have it done for free in the absence of any physical damage)

"I got somebody to replace the screen for me and it was working until now" this more likely affects your warranty as the warranty seal is tampered..
What did the guy do to get it right did you replace something or just got it serviced..??

    "Would it be best to explain the situation to them and hope for the best". - Not at all .
    Opened is opened. The replaced screen may be of poor quality which might have given rise to current condition. Chances of replacement are very little. If you explain they won't just accept your claim but may be you can just try your luck without explaining anything.

I had this problem. When I took apart the screen, there was a loose screw on the circuit board behind it. The screw is in the middle of the circuit board behind the screen.

Most likely your issue is caused by a failing LCD Inverter. You will need to have this replaced. Part is available here: http://cgi.ebay.com/Acer-Aspire-One-A110-A150-LCD-Screen-Inverter-B089AW01_W0QQitemZ190363835846QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_LaptopAccess_RL?hash=item2c52919dc6

My daughters acer one goes black after start up


Take the netbook into a dark room and see if you can see the screen. There are three possibilities here....either the screen is on and the backlight has failed or there is nothing on the screen because the inverter has failed or the screen itself has failed. If you take the netbook into a dark room and shine a flashlight on the bottom section of the screen, if you see the desktop or test etc. then the screen and inverter are good and the backlight has failed. If however you don't see anything on the screen and you are sure the laptop booted, then most likely you have lost the inverter or the screen itself.

Screen flickers on Acer Aspire A150 Netbook


Hello,

It really sounds like you have a short in the ac adapter. Laptops dim the backlight on the screen when on battery power and go full brightness when on AC. I think your adapter is going on and off. When it is on the screen is on full and when it goes off the screen dims down a bit. You could have a bad adapter, most likely, or a bad charging jack in your laptop. Check the adapter first, just use a multimeter set to voltage. Read lead goes to the center pin and black lead goes to the outside metal contact, you should get a reading of 18 to about 26 volts. Move the wire around near the plug that you are holding and keep checking the readout. I think you will find the voltage dropping as you move the wire.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.
