Could be the clamshell close switch is bad on it. If that's the problem, it'll require board level soldering skill as well as ability to take it apart down to the motherboard.
Search for Service manual for Acer *model* on the internet and you should be able to find and download the service manual giving instructions on how to perform the required fix.
I highly recommend that you feel confident in your technical abilities before you try to take apart and fix a laptop yourself - and be careful to eliminate the possiblity of ESD - a computer's worst enemy...

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out; usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

My computer powers up but nothing appears on the screen. All lights indicate thaty the computer is on but screen remains black. What can I do?


Hook a spare monitor to the video output on the back of the laptop, If okay! the LCD display on the computer is the issue, cause, the inverter board is bad "most likely" that powers the back light, the less likely is the back light behind the screen. But if both screens show the same problem it is the video graphics card that is part of the motherboard. I suggest a computer tech.

This could be that the screen topback light or bottom back light is bad or the inverter.
the topback or bottom back light could also be seing as the flouricent of the screen that light up the screen to enable display visible.This top back light or botom back light as the name implies is positioned at the top and bottom side of the screen.It takes an expertize knowledge for one to be able to change the flouricent when comfirms bad.The same is applicable with Inverter.

Lamp is sitting next to my computer. When lamp is turned on, it darkens computer screen. Computer screen light returns when lamp is turned off.


Your computer screen may have a light leveling sensor, if you find your monitor has this you can cover the sensor with electrical or masking tape. Clear plastic tape will not help. Good Luck!

mcdevito75 here, Press the SHIFT key, a screen should come up telling you too click on your user name, left lower side of screen. If this doesn"t work, press the yellow blinking light on the monitor see if picture comes back, then follow the directions. If this doesn"t work, shut computer down with switch on the computer itself. Hope this helps.

My monitor light comes on but there is no signal.


Isolate the problem. Connect the problem monitor into different computer. If the problem monitor worked on another computer, try connecting a CRT monitor to the problem computer. Once the display comes back, change the screen resolution.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


I am not familiar with your particular model, but I do know what the problem is.
The inverter that runs the lights behind the screen is faulty and needs to be repaired. The lights shine from the top and bottom and reflect outwards through the panel so you can see what is on the screen. If you start the computer up, then shine a bright light into the panel you will see an image on the screen, but very feintly.
This can be cheap, it can also be expensive depending on where you go to get it repaired. Call aorund to a few TV shops in your area to get a rough idea on prices.

Hope that helps =)

Screen light off


Back light has failed or the inverter or connector come loose. A repair shop job, unless you are up to taking it apart to check the inverter connector from screen to body of the computer Is it exposed or concealed in the hinge? If exposed try a little wiggle. But repair shop I reckon
