Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook

1 Answer

Can't switch off

My Acer screen has frozen and now looks a bit like the video channel on a TV, ie two broad white vertical series of lines. I cannot switch off conventionally, or by the on/off switch, or by closing the lid. Has anyone else had this problem?
Look forward to your solutions
Thanks

This normally is caused by faulty Memory specially if your laptop depends or is getting shared Memory from the RAM.

recommended solution: Try to remove theMemory/ies and clean the contact using a soft pencil eraser. Make sure that you lean both sides nd avoid touching them after cleaning.If yu have done this and still have same problem try to remove and alternately install the memory one at a time. If still same problem I suggest you bring your unit to the nearest shop to do Advance Hardware checking.

There is a white broad line on the left half of the TV when it's switched on.what could be the problem? LED model LG LE4500


Hi, I had a similar problem with my plasma tv.
I fixed it buy taking off the back panel then at the bottom there is another panel. Under that panel are the ribbon connectors for the vertical picture.
Looks like your 2nd ribbon has the problem. Maybe it has come losses, not sure but pull the 2n ribbon out and plug it back in. Or if you pull out the first connector ad leave it out then turn the tv back on ad see if that leave another plank part of the tv. If so then u have found your problem.

Westinghouse LCD TV - broad vertical green and blue lines


try to go to the factory reset and see if that helps. If not, you can then check your connection. if you use component (red, green and blue for video and red and white for audio), make sure all the color matches when you plug it in. if everything have been checked then you need to replace the main board and it should correct the problem.

this sounds like a scan board gone ,, if you check ebay youll see two things,
1, other tvs for sale with the same fault (It might give you a clue to the fault ie , which board )
2, the same tv as yours with a broken screen ,

i dont know how good you are with taking things to bits but i personally would buy the tv with the broken screen and start swapping over the internal boards ?

Have you checked your home insurance policy for broken tv,s
