Monitor is dark. how to fix?


Walt, hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the Acer, F5, Display Toggle-Over key.

There are at least 3 display options available;

1) Internal display of laptop ONLY

2) Internal display of laptop AND external display

3) External display ONLY.

Were you just using the external display for more 'display real estate room', or was/is there a problem with the internal display of the laptop?

Was no problem? Is now? Even when using the guidance stated above for the Fn and F5 key?

Then if your laptop uses a CCFL for a Backlight, it also uses a screen Inverter. Screen Inverter is bad.

If it doesn't use CCFL/s for a backlight, and uses LED backlighting, replace the LCD screen.
The LED backlighting is incorporated in the LCD screen assembly, and you ain't replacing it.
Replace the entire LCD screen.

Post the laptop manufacturer name, and model number in a Comment. Model number is on Bottom of laptop.

Why did you replace the lcd inverter? Were you able to barely see icons on the desktop which is an indication that the lcd inverter is bad? If not, then you need to replace the lcd screen. If you could barely see the icons and you replaced the lcd inverter, then the inverter is bad. Just because the inverter is new does not mean it works. If the video shows on the external monitor, but you can't see anything on the laptop's screen even when you shine a flashlight on it then the lcd screen is bad.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad.
If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Cannot get the Fn-F5 to work on Acer AspireOne


You can switch to anexternal monitor by two methods.1. Connect the externalmonitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and thelaptop. The video information will automatically switch to the externalmonitor.2. If you power up thelaptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor bypressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make andmodel laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCDscreen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fnkey plus one of the function key. Here is a list of keycombinations for some of the laptops :-IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7HP and Compaq = Fn + F4Toshiba = Fn + F5Dell = Fn + F8

Acer Aspire 6530G black screen


Hi,
There's no point getting a crisis program if you cannot see the screen in the first place.
The problem could be anything from a faulty graphics, faulty motherboard or loose cable or inverter board.
To test this connect an external monitor to the laptop and use the keyboard toggle to switch screens (hold down Fn and press the F key that has a monitor icon on it)
If the external monitor has a display on it then the problem is the inverter, inverter cable or the screen itself which if faulty.
If there is no display on the external monitor you maybe looking at a new laptop.
If you have no external monitor to test then look very close at the laptop screen, if you can just make out an image then its the inverter.
Post back if you require any more assistance.



Regards.

Acer aspire 3050 black


refer to ur user manual to see which key for brightness e.g.fn+f 9
(reduce brightness)if havnt got one can easily download one of net.try to swich screen to monitor.connect external moniter and press fn+f 5.(refer to manual maybe different key)
press down and release screen lid button see if any response.if all fail need to disassemble.
remove screw in about middle of pc underneath.this ia retainer screw for key board.remove screws dirrectly behind screen to remove plate with buttons.then can get access to keyboard and lift away (do not disconnect it just rest it on screen or front of pc )check cables from mother board to screen.check inverter.
all these are worth checking but initially sounds like inverter faulty.
