If you have a very dim display, or no backlight it could be due to a few things. A loose LCD cable could cause the problem, a very basic way to test this would be to apply pressure to various parts of the laptop case and screen bezel, also move the screen and see if a backlight ever powers on. If you are comfortable opening your laptop to check connections then do so. A faulty cable is also a possibility. Sometimes it is a software issue, try turning your display brightness up to max, does the backlight illuminate when in BIOS? If so it is a software problem. Finally it could be a failed LCD inverter, this is a bit of hardware usually separate from the LCD although is sometimes built onto it. These are generally easy and reasonably cheap to replace.<br /> <span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:black;mso-fareast-language: EN-GB">Hope this helps,</span><br /> <span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:black;mso-fareast-language: EN-GB"><a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.putercare.com/">www.PuterCare.com</a></span><br />

My sharp aquos lc-c3242u turned itself off and now wont turn back on. i plugged it into a different power receptacle and the green light flashes but wont turn on. is there a way to reset the tv, or is...


If power light continuously flashing it means backlight problem. Two possible causes. One, backlight invertor is faulty. Two, but realy rare, one of the CCFL lamps went bad.

My acer extenza 4420 backlight wont turn on


most likely:

1. backlight is dead (search for replacement displays).

2. backlight power-inverter is dead (check ebay for your model +inverter to see if there is even one in your model)

3. (very unlikely) wires which power the backlight may be worn from bending over time.

for the time-being, connect an external monitor, if possible, so you can access your system. connect it, power-on, and it should work by default -if not, hold the Fn key and press F8 (usually this key) to enable external display output.

and.. good luck!

Backlight wont stay on


The inverter board which provides the backlight power isn't working properly. This is a pretty common problem with LCD screens. The inverter is in the display, mounted under the display panel. It's a fairly simple job to replace the inverter. You have to remove the screws holding the front of the display to the back and separate the pieces. The inverter is held in place by a couple of screws and has a couple of cables connecting it to the main board and display panel. Unplug those, remove the inverter, mount the replacement and plug the cables back in. Then reassemble the display. A search on Google for "acer 5315 inverter" turned up several sources for the replacement part. Here is one. I don't know anything about this seller; I just picked it as an example.
