Hi,

Since the Acer Aspire 5315 works except that the display is dark, then it would be safe to assume that it is only the LCD display part that is the issue. Often LCD display (of laptops) are working but only that you can not see the actual display. One way to verify is to shine a flashlight at an oblique angle to the screen, semblance or part of the desktop could be seen. If the desktop could be seen (albeit very very dark background) then it could either be the CCF Lamps (cold cathode florescent) or the inverter that powers the lamps.

Often, the defective component would be the inverter. It is relatively easy to replace the inverted. It is sometimes more difficult and challenging cracking open the casing of the display panel of the laptop than replacing the inverter. Additionally, inverters are readily available online. It is also not surprising that inverters for other brands/models would also be used in your Acer Aspire 5315.

This would be a good place to start for inverter boards. This is a nice tutorial if you are considering a DIY.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Of course another possibility is that there is just a loose connection in the LCD panel display.

I have an acer aspire 5315 and the screen goes black I have tried to go into set up and I have taken out bateries etc but it's still not working . Any help is greatly appreciated thanks


Hello mariawint589,

The following instructions are from the Acer Aspire 5315 user's guide (page 35):

The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display back on, three hings might be the cause:

*The brightness level might be too low. Press <Fn>+<right-arrow key> (Increase) to adjust the brightness level.

*The display device might be set to an external monitor. Press the display toggle hotkey <Fn>+<F5> to toggle the display back to the computer

*If the sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in sleep mode. Press and release the power button to resume.

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating.

Have a great day,

Screen not working on ACER 5315 laptop


First be sure you dont have an imput problem on your laptop while you are testing it. The input buton (swtich view) should be acessible via the Fn button and the F3-F8 on the keyboard (depends on your model) but it could looks like this : |[]| it really depends on the brands/models. It seems you experience some driver issues, but the driver should work for both devices... It's possible that your laptop screen or inverter are defective. But before saying so, be sure to try to switch views while you got the external monitor plugged in and see what happens. If only your external monitor works fine, you may have to replace some hardware in your laptop. I would personally contact the Acer technical support before spending any money on it though. Just in case... I hope it still in warranty cause it may be a bit expensive otherwise :(

Screen has just gone very dark acer aspire 5351


If you look very closely, can you still see things on the screen? Try moving your mouse around or clicking on the Start Menu in the corner. If you can see images on the screen but there's no light coming out of the LCD, then the backlight in your LCD panel just went out. It happens sometimes, and there's not a quick fix for it. You'll have to send it off for repair or get a replacement LCD screen. If there appears to be light coming out of the screen, but it's just not bright, you may be able to adjust the brightness using the function keys on your keyboard.

Try starting in safe mode (press f8 on start up) once in safe mode use system restore to restore your operating system to a earlier point.
For XP
Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.
For Vista
Start - all programs - maintenance - backup and restore center

ACER ASPIRE LCD TROUBLE!!


If the screen appears dark with only a faint image or picture and the brightness can't be adjusted then it is likely that the screen backlight is not on - the backlight is like a very thin flourescent tube that runs along the bottom of the screen and provides the illumination. The backlight tube may be faulty or the small electronic inverter unit that powers the backlight tube may have failed. Occasionally the backlight is off because the little switch that is used to detect the screen lid being closed is broken or stuck in. If your backlight is faulty, some engineers will replace it - but it is more common that the entire screen is changed. If it is the inverter they can usually be replaced from ebay.

My Acer Aspire 3000 is really dark and dim


If the brightness is dull even when connected to the mains, it maybe that your back lighting is faulty on the screen and you will need a qualified repairer, although it may be worth looking at a new notebook depending on the cost.
