Bubble-like spots on lcd

I recently noticed that I have two adjacent spots on the lcd of my acer travelmate 4152. on light colors they appear slightly lighter, and when I shake the screen back and forth they wobble in a way that makes them look 3D, like bubbles. Otherwise just two rounds spots of discoloration.

Any idea what I'm looking at?

thanks

    no warranty and its not something that warrants a replacement. I don't think "dead spot" applies, its more like distorted.

    is this something that gets worse?

Your Licquid Crystal Display appears to have gone bad... much like a dead pixel in a TV, you get a dead spot on the display of your lcd that looks like a bubbe.

You need to have the screen replaced or you will have to live with the bubbles. If the PC is still under warranty I'd send it in for repair. You may be able to pick up an inexpensive replacement on eBay, but make sure you are careful if you replace the screen yourself.

Hi this is prince here from Bangladesh. i have a laptop that is acer travel mate 420. a few days ago its display is not working properly. some times it turn into various color. so what can i do?


Hi Prince, has your laptop experienced a squeeze or fall recently? I have a few suggestions. Plug another monitor into the VGA or DVI connection on your laptop. See if you are getting the same problem. If everything is working fine on the external monitor you would have eliminated the drivers being the problem. I suggest getting the LCD display changed. If your laptop is under warranty, you can get this done for free. However, if it is not under warranty you may have to replace it either yourself or take it to a local Acer specialist. If you chose to install the new display yourself, there are handy tutorials on removing and installing the screen on the Acer website. I have noticed that many times the Acer TravelMate Notebooks have experienced display issues. I hope you get your problem resolved soon.
Thanks for using FixYa.com!!

Spot like watermark on screen


When you see this starting to develope it is usually indicative of the screen delaminating. The different layers of the lcd may be failing and the picture will start to get more and more destorted. There is no fix except screen replacement.

Shine a flashlight at the screen, if you can faintly see the image then your backlight has failed and you will have to contact acer to have it replaced.

You may need to go onto the system board and reseat the connection. It could be loose. Maybe a drop or some type of sudden impact caused it. If that doesn't work then your LCD inverter is going bad and you my need to replace the LCD screen.

Acer Travelmate LCD screen went dark


The same thing happened on my HP. I ended up buying a LCD screen off ebay. That corrected the problem. New screens cost $150+. You can get one off ebay for half the price.

New LCD Screen not working


The cable that connects the panel to the conputer is not in the connector correctly. It is probably skewed slightly rather than ebing straight into the connector. Since the individual connections are very close to each other, there are a few that are shorted or not connected at all.

Reseat the cables at both ends.

Try updating your display driver.

Generally the computer should be updated as far as the drivers is concerned.

Check on line at the website of this laptop for updated drivers.

Check these before you do anything else.
