Screen does not work

Hey thanks for stopping by.
the problem i am facing is that the screen is very dim so dark that you cannot be able to see what you are doing. If you look close up you can make out the image being displayed on the screen. would this have to do with anything with the inverter, lamps or backlight? thank you.

I would suggest to take remote control of the computer - then you can see if it is the screen or the graphics card....www.sumox.com can help you here.

In most cases I would instantly say the inverter has failed. The fact you have an Acer I will say it hasn't failed, it's the electronics doing their job.
The problem you will have is failed capacitors and therefore the protection circuits have sprung into action to protect the remaining electronics in the inverter section.

If you know how to replace faulty/failed capacitors then it's an easy task. If not then I would advise your local TV tech do it for you. Repair wise, the parts are cheap, it's the labour that can get expensive. Going in there knowing the problem though will give you the edge when asking for a quote.

Why does my screen go dark when I am making a call


It should go dark when you put throne up to your face. That keeps it from getting to warm on your face. If you don't want it to go dark, you can turn the auto dim off in settings under display. It will use more battery, but it shouldn't go dim. Then that may be under another setting.

Sounds like your contrast is a little too dark. Press the 2nd key and then hold down. This should dim the contrast. If you dim it too much simply daeken it by pressing second and up.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.
