Well I can tell you I seen that in several occasions and what happens is that the back light just burn out but the liquid crystal still works, the only way to fix that is replacing the display. you can find good deals on ebay so, you can order it and then take it to a repair shop (not a big store) most of this displays are refurbished but in great shape and if you want to do it yourself and save some money, let me know we can find the schematics for you.
LCD price= $99 to about $180 it varies

if it works for you, don't forget to rate me

thx

Either the power inverter board in the display, or the lamp (back light lamp)itself is out. You'd better have some experience to tackle this repair and you need a source for parts. A guy at a local flea-market around here charged $30.00 for a used screen and $30.00 labor to replace it. Sweet deal...

Sound but no picture samsung 40" lcd


It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.

Black screen my acer computer just stop showing anything on it...all memory is intact but nothing else shows


looks like you have lcd backlight lamp bad, you can try connecting external monitor to make sure the computer boots up, also you can use flashlight to shine directly on lcd screen to see if there are any images showing, if that works you can order backlight lamp from ebay replace it and enjoy ;) if you never fixed electronics before do not try to do it yourself, find somebody who knows how to do it, it is tricky

Hi, Im using windows XP on my Compaq notebook. Today, when i turned my notebook on, the display is really dim. Infact, it becomes dimmer when i put notebook on charge. Its strange. please help. Thanks!


Either:

your backlight on the monitor is going out.

or

The powersave functions are out of whack.

Check your settings, reinstall the display drivers, if that doesn't solve it, it's a hardware issue.

To verify boot from a DOS boot disk or linux (something text based), and see if it's still dark. It's probably a hardware issue.

Backlight or lcd problem


Hi. It sounds like the backlight of the LCD has failed. If you replace the LCD screen that'll solve the problem. See http://www.formymobile.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=w850lcd

the reason for not seeing any picture on the external is becouse it is disabled in windows. I have 3 lcd screens here, only one gives picture untill I go and extend my desktop into the other monitors.
from desktop -> right click anywhere -> properties -> settings ->

Id say the backlight is bad is your acer still covered by warranty?
