Carefully open the screen lid and look at the back of the screen there is a type number [like LTN15ox3] you can then obtain a replacement screen from ebay searching for this type number.
However if the screen only shows a faint dark image the fault could be the screen inverter that powers up the backlight tube in the screen.

Acer aspire 3690 has pink screen in lower half toward middle of screen

Your screen inverter is going bad, you will need to replace the screen inverter. You can parts on ebay, and you may need to take your computer apart to get it replaced.

I need restore CD for acer aspire 3690

Did you create a backup disk?? If not reboot your computer and hit f8 at the acer splash screen.. you will find a menu with multiple choices, choose the one that says restore to the last known good configuration. You will be given a list of dates.. choose the one closest to todays and your computer will be restored to an earlier time. Let me know if this works, if not we'll take the next step, can you get into Windows?

Black screen!

It sounds like a Back light failure. A good computer shop should be able to repair it. Also could be a screen failure. a lot of work for those who have not worked on these before. but its fixable!! find a local good shop :)

As long as you burned the recovery media when you got the laptop or they actually shipped with recovery media, then you should be fine.
