Acer 5610 Screen Problem?


I'm just looking for a little bit of advice really. I have a Acer 5610... Which is now around 3 years old. The laptop has never really had a problem other than a DVD/RW Drive replacement, and now a new screen.

Around about 6 months back, the screen that was in the laptop developed a series of lines which were various colours going down the screen. This didn't effect the usage of the laptop because the screen was still displaying images. And then, around about 4 months ago, i got a large, say 10cm thick line, going down the screen on the right hand side, and a band at the bottom of the screen, with various coloured lines (which followed the theme of the XP Appearance - Under neath the start button there were a series of green lines, and then underneath the rest, the 2 shades of blue.

Anyway, i purchased an Acer 5610 screen off the internet, and installed it yesterday. Now, the screen doesn't have the different coloured lines going down the screen showing that the circuit board on the back of the screen has lost connection in various places, but it is doing the exact same as the old broken screen in the respect that there is a 10cm black line on the right hand side of the display, and the various coloured lines beneath the start bar.

XP has been clever enough to make the resolution of the screen fit the area in which it works. So it is still usable, but sometimes hard to use with the lack of screen space.

I have tested the new screen in another laptop, a Dell one infact, and it works Perfectly!!

I'm considering purchasing a new Band/Ribbon connection cable for the acer laptop, but don't know if it will be worth it considering the laptop is of such an age, and could be a fault on the motherboard, I don't have access to a spare acer ribbon cable for the display though to test the screen its self.

Hope to hear from you soon.

SOURCE: nintendo DS bottom display screen

Hi I have a problem with my bottom screen as well. I was replacing the case as the hinge was broken. When i was putting it back together i noticed a slight tear in the ribbon cable which is attached to the board and the bottom screen.
When I turned it on I found I had poor colour and contrast in the bottom screen however the top screen was fine.
Where this ribbon cable is attached to the board there is two small cables attached to the board beneath it, maybe one of these has come away and needs repositioning or your bottom screen needs replacing.Try this site for diy tips

Have you tried to connect your laptop to external monitor?
If you get normal picture on external monitor, then you need to replace LCD screen, but if you get same picture on external screen, then unfortunately you will need new motherboard, because graphics card is integrated to motherboard.

Enable tapping on touchpad

on the bottom right corner of your screen there should be a little square that lights up or becomes animated when you more your finger on the touchpad. move your cursor to that and right click it ( put your cursor on it and click the right (as in not left) button and select properties. The option is in there, just look around for it : )

Hi. Need a bit of advice. The screen on my acer aspire 6935g won't come on. There is power to the laptop, I can hear the fans working and the LED lights on the keyboard all work. I have tried a ha

From my experience this happens because Acer has a native problem with video chipset on the motherboard. I think your data is still on the hard drive, if you want to recover your documents you can extract hdd from laptop and plug into a case for sata/pata hdd. Depending on wich country you live the price for repairing the laptop should be around 100 euros top. This means the service will have to reball your chipset. Inform me with your decision (if you want to repair the laptop) and I will gladly assist you in resolving your problem.

Acer aspire 6930 Laptop screen suddenly flickers out of nowhere less than a year old.

Hi Guest,
Acer has really laxed in their products.
The problem is they have a poor air flow to keep the CPU and the Video Chip Cool. Chances are you blew you Video Chip.
If it is past the warrenty... Look on line for a new motherboard because you can't change the Video chip.
Look in your neighborhood for a good laptop tech who wood change the motherboard

Acer Aspire 5610. LCD very dim all of a sudden.

That sounds just like an inverter problems. There is a slim chance the bulb could be a problem, but I would replace the inverter. It is not too hard to do, no soldering involved.

You have to remove the screw covers on the frame of the LCD frame, and then carefully pop off the frame. The inverter should be on the bottom center of the screen.

Be careful, there is a high voltage in that little baby. Just get the full numbers, and do a search on the internet and buy yourself a new inverter to replace the old one.

I don't have any personal experience with other models, i look after 5 Acers, all are atleast 4 years old and running as good as new, if you are not happy, return it as i am on an Acer 5610 at the moment and the fan is not really noisy, different noise on different surfaces; although it cuts in and out every 2-3 or so mins.
