Question about Acer AL2671W 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

I turn the tv on, the ACER screen appears and then goes to a black screen with audio only, i assume this is the backlight. Is this correct? In a dark room you can seen very faint images on the screen but not enough to make out what it is. When the acer logo is on the screen when turned on, the top portion of the screen is slightly darker than the bottom half. If it is the backlight where is it located and where can a replacement be purchased? i took off the back and could not locate.

Its is the back light and its located on the sides of the screen and a replacement can be found HERE

Genially speaking now a faulty inverter can cause a lcd back-light to do this if the back light is completely out investigate the inverters first before just digging at the back-light.

9 times out of ten its a inverter before its a back light. The chief complaint is the screen is not coming, on with sound.

diagnosis: Check back light/inverter

Sanyo DP46142 TV comes on for approximately 30 seconds and then screen goes black. Power LED stays on.


Sounds like a backlight problem to me. If you input a signal to the HDMI or Composite input and then it goes black have you tried taking a flashlight to the screen to see if the picture is still there but just dark? That would indicate a backlight issue. That model appears to be an LED edge lit backlight, so if the picture is still there after going black your going to have to trace out the backlight circuit and see whats going on. Usually with LED backlighting if it comes on at all then the LED's are good, its just the driver supply thats failing to keep them on. Some TV's have a small separate board that provides the backlight control, but i suspect with this model its on the power supply board and not the motherboard. Have you checked that board? It could be bad caps on the power supply board, check the voltages to the backlighting when it lights up and then when it goes dark. It could just be some failed capacitors on the power supply causing that voltage rail to drop off.

HELP! Olevia lt37hvs screen went blank. No Sound, panel buttons wont work. Backlight is only on on half of screen.


if you had audio i wold say its most likely the Tconn or its upper two connections to the Panel itself. But since you dont have any sound either I would assume its either the LVDS cable from the main board to the Tconn or the Main board itself as audio and video are produced on the main board, You can get replacement boards from www.tvrepairworld.com

When tv turned on will get apicture for only a few seconds then screen goes black, but wil continue to have audio. Cannot pull up menu on tv either


Hello.The screen goes black means that the backlights of your LCD is not working.Maybe the problem is the power supply or the driver board of the backlights.They shutdown because there have a shorted parts on the circuit or power supply. Did you try to reset the power and turned on and get a picture or every time that you reset the power it will get a picture and the picture goes black?

It sounds like a backlight or inverter problem. You can verify this by using a bright light to shine on the screen surface. If you can see the picture (but it will be very dark) that means that the backlight which illuminates the screen from behind. You would have to replace the inverter to test it, but there is good news: These are pretty difficult to find parts for, and not an easy repair for an amateur; acer products usually have a 3 year warranty on the backlight/inverter system, so I would start there.

LCD screen gone dark, can still hear sound and see image


It wouls appear one of the backlights in the screen is cutting out, this will require the screen to be replaced although in certain circumstances, depending on the age & model of your TV, it is sometimes possible to change the faulty backlight independantly. Take it to a repair centre to get an anaylisis of the type of screen it has.
