Do you want to connect an external LCD screen to your Acer laptop?
The Acer will have a blue 15pin Dsub female video connector. The standard 15pin monitor video cable will connect to the Acer's video port.

How do i fix white screen on my kav60 acer aspire one

The KAV60 is also the AOD250.

Netbook OFF, monitor OFF, connect an external monitor to the netbook's VGA port.

[You can use a VGA monitor. Looks like a small TV.
This is an example of a VGA port,

VGA connector Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Note* VGA port doesn't have to be blue in color ]

Turn the monitor on. Turn the netbook on.
If there is no image shown on the external VGA monitor, press and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
(The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)

No image on external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down once more, and tap again on the F5 key.

Still no?
Problem is internal in netbook. Probably graphics chipset soldered to the motherboard.
Replace motherboard.

Image shows on external monitor?
Problem is with Video Cable or laptop LCD screen.
MOST of the time it's the Video Cable.

The Video Cable connects to the motherboard, in an area under the Keyboard. It then routes up under the left Hinge, and into the Display Panel.
Inside the Display Panel it then connects to the LCD screen.

With frequent opening and closing of the netbook, the Video Cable can be pulled on. This can cause damage to the Video Cable.
(Stretched/broken wires inside the sheath of the cable)

And/or it can cause the connection at the motherboard to be loose, and/or at the LCD screen.

Example of Acer Aspire One video cable,

For ACER Aspire One D250 LCD Screen Cable DC02000SB10 KAV60 New

You can remove the Video Cable, and check it's continuity with a multimeter, or if the cost is reasonable to you simply replace it.

8 to 10 dollar video cable is not the problem? Then problem is the LCD screen itself.

My money is on a loose video cable connection, or damaged video cable.

For additional questions or to have me clarify/simplify anything in my solution, please post in a Comment.

How do i swap outscreens form one acer aspire to another i have a old one and want to replace the screen on my other which got stepped on

Swapping out is not that tough.

What you do need to know however, is if the LCD screen from the older Aspire One netbook, will work in the 'other' one.

A newer model of Aspire One may Not have the same specifications of it's LCD screen, as one in per se, an older Aspire One.

The screen size may be comparable, the finish also. (Glossy or Matte)
But the voltage requirements, signal requirements, and other specs may be different.
This means also that the Video Cable will be different.

What to do?
You're going to have to remove the LCD screen out of the older Aspire One, and out of the 'other' Aspire One, and look at the information on the back of the LCD screens.

Look at the manufacturer, and model number.
Also of course, it will only take a few seconds to see if the Video Cables are compatible.
If they aren't, it isn't worth going any further.

[ In looking from a brief search, it seems all Aspire One laptop/mini's use a 40-pin video cable connector,

Looks good so far ]

If the older Aspire One LCD screen video cable, will not plug into the 'other' Aspire One motherboard, you can't use it. Can't use the older Aspire One LCD screen.

IF, the video cables appear to be exactly the same, then I would recommend looking up the specs for both LCD screens, on the internet.
Or post in a Comment on here, and I'll look it up.

(Manufacturer name, and model number's on back of both LCD screens)

Also a Primer;
An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

[ Note*
However your model may use LED lights for a Backlight, instead of Fluorescent lighting ]

A Inverter (screen Inverter) is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

The LCD screen AND Inverter are a MATCHED unit.

This also needs to be looked up on the internet, to see if they are compatible, from the older Aspire One's LCD screen, to the 'other' Aspire One's screen Inverter.

There are MANY models of the Acer Aspire One.
I will post links to info I have on disassembly, to include replacing the LCD screen.


Where it states Aspire One, NAV50, click on the blue - One

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name (One) it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

Screen going pink/red unless nearly closed

This is due to some loose contact of your LCD Cable connection or LCD Panel cable malfunction. Reinsert LCD panel cable in proper way and check else you need to replace the LCD Panel Cable.
