Visual inspection and Voltages checking will be the first thing to do.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My screen will not come on


Replace it with a new LCD Inverter, you can address the following issues:
Screen image, but the power light stays in
Dark display, but still readable
Flashing on and off of the screen between 1/2 to several seconds
The power indicator stays on, but no display and sound
Screen images, but LCD TV still has sound
Picture cycle on and off, as well as high-power LED lights

Wifes Acer laptop screen went black, power light is on, fan is running, but nothing comes up on the screen.... We're stumped...


If you reboot it and everything seems normal except there is no display, get a flashlight and examine the screen for a display with no backlight. Maybe it is just the back light power supply that has failed?
Hope that helps.

Hi ive got a dell studio laptop the laptop powers up but nothing comes on the screen. The screen is less than 12 months old


HI there.
Try this things first so that you can check if it is really the screen that's causing the problem,
While the computer is off, press D+POWER button and hold it for 5 secs, different colors should come up,
Make sure the computer turns on. You will know that if the power button lights up. Try to lug in an external monitor and see if display will come up,
If the display comes up, and the d+power did not display anything, might want to call technical support so you can get the screen replaced,
Have a good day!

Screen goes blank


Hi jkm007, Sounds like the back light inverter board is bad. It's a very common problem. LCD's use four small cold compact fluorescent bulbs to back light the display. (thats what gives the LCD it's brightness allowing you to see it) The inverter board runs these lights and when they go bad they will typically show symptoms like you have or the monitor power light comes on and you have either no display or a very dim display. If you ever have one that has no display but the power light is on you can check by shining a flashlight directly into the LCD from the front (right into the screen) if you can see an image then it's either the inverter board (most likely) or the CCFL bulbs have gone bad. The inverter board and CCFL's are replaceable. Good Luck, El Duderino
