Question about Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Notebook

1 Answer

Dim Screen When I turn on my grandmothers Acer it starts up like it is suppose to.  However the screen is very dark and you need to hold it just in the right light to be able to see the screen.

    I also have the dim screen. I have the Acer aspire 5050 and it has gone dim. For awhile there I could move the cover back and forth and find a spot that kept it bright, but no more. I haven't even used this laptop that much and have never dropped or banged it.
    I've tried the Fn/arrow key but that doesn't work. Any other ideas?

    I'm about to send it back as this is killing my eyes!

    Yes, I did have the same problem - and it WAS the function/arrow key that solved it: THANK YOU!

Dim screen acer 5100-3019


Try going into power option settings and taking the brightness to the max there. Start, control panel, power options, then you should see a setting for battery and for plugin. Hope this helps.

The laptop screen turned a funny orange color on start up and then the screen went dark. Pressing the brightness buttons has no affect. Any quick fix?


Check it on an external monitor to see if the video card is good. If the external works, then the LCD or backlight is bad. Look with a flashlight. If there is a very dim image, then it is probably the backlight. If no image, then the LCD.

My laptop is very dark and holding fn and the sun


The Back-light on your LCD screen is bad, your crystals aren't illuminating, so it is dark.... very dark.

You need a new LCD screen.

Sorry.

Acer screen looks dark?


You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

The screen on my acer 5000 has no brightness. If


You need a new screen backlight. I was an Acer Repair guy a few years back and its definatley a physical thing. Only other possibility is the dim seetings are set to pretty much 100. If turning the brightness up which you can do from the keyboard fails call acer repairs for the part number or send it in for repair.

Acer Travelmate LCD screen went dark


The same thing happened on my HP. I ended up buying a LCD screen off ebay. That corrected the problem. New screens cost $150+. You can get one off ebay for half the price.
