Hi good day! just a tip and it might work.try to check on the contrast settings try the function key + right arrow button if still does'nt work
try to do power drain first try to power off the computer and make sure it is totally turned off remove anything that is plugged on to your computer including the ac adapter and the battery. and then press and hold the power for 15 seconds. if still doesnt work then try to check on to your acer power management settings, if still doesnt work the probably there is a problem either with the ribbon or the lcd itself

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 but a guy in this same service said you may be able to find one for 30 bucks at a flemarket

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

thx

The screen will go into a flickiring mode for a while then it will stop on its own a few times a day but i let it sit on table and keep working it will stop


There are two things that will cause this, the inverter board "located under the LCD screen" or the back light is going "located behind the screen" eventually it will get worse and stop working.

If you shine a bright light at the screen and can see the picture then you may just require a ballast unit for the back light.

Hope that helps.

Laptop Monitor keeps going blank or near blank. When the monitor is moved into a different position it may turn back on or it may not.


Sounds like the back light of the screen is playing up or there is a loose wire. Either way the screen will stop completely and will not keep working. The best thing to do is try and buy a new back light for laptop screen and replace it, or take it to a professional to look at and repair for you. It's not a simply fix. Thanks igi_57!

LCD screen is blank (Dell Latitude C610)


I would say that it is a faulty backlight. The CCFL is a huge pain to replace on its own, but is much cheaper than replacing the whole LCD assembly, which does come with the inverter.
