This is a problem I have experienced with my HP laptop as well. I found some info on this and was told that it was the inverter. I managed to fix this by finding the inverter and, unplugging both ends of it and plugging it back in. This fixed the problem and a week later its still working!

The inverter is usually located at the bottom of the screen. To access it you need to unscrew the screws around the screen. This will involve removing the plastic covers and simply unscrewing them.

Once you have removed the plastic cover from around the screen, you should see the inverter at the bottom. Re-seat the connectors, and see if this fixes it. If not, replace with inverter. The site below is an example of where you can buy one.

Acer extensa 5620 will power on. The battery light on with the battery and power cord. But it will light on with the just the power cord or jujst the battery.


As long as it is working OK, then the battery light, is only an indicator, A laptop should work, either way, with just the battery, or just the Power Supply, and of course both. Try adjusting you Power Settings and see if that alters anything. Also consult you manual about the issue.

ACER EXTENSA 4620-4605 model screen problem


If you wiggle the screen and it comes back, then it is not your Video card. Probably just a loose connection with your LCD cable to the LCD screen. Although you may also need a new screen/cable.

The weird thing is that it "fades" out... which would indicate a bad screen to me.. but securing the cable is alot cheaper to try first.

Completely rule out your graphics card by connecting your laptop to an external monitor... if it works fine for a long period of time then your card is fine.

Good Luck.

On your first laptop, If you see a faded image, it usually is the Inverter board. I have had great success buying from this company, great customer service:
http://www.smartmicrousa.com/acer_inverter_board.aspx

If you don't see it on the website, call them.
You may have to copy and paste the link into your browser.

On the second laptop, It seems you have replaced all components that may be causing the problem.
I would hook up a monitor to test and see if your video out is working. That would narrow it down to the LCD and or the Inverter.
Then I would check the connection on the system board and the connection on the LCD screen where the cable from the system board plugs in. It is strange that you get the same symptoms after changing all those parts. Were the parts you use for replacement new? You may have receive DOA parts.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Check the setting for the VGA display. Usually it's a combination of keys that include the Fn key and another key. The VGA key has a picture of a monitor by the key. If that doesn't work look for brightness dial on the laptop.

Try to find the button that tells the screen to come on. This sticks sometimes on laptops. I always tell people not to use canned air because it only blows dust around, but it could help your problem. If you are okay with taking it apart you can find this button and see if it is sticking. This is becoming a common problem with laptops. I recently had a customer with this problem and it took me some time to figure it out. It is usually around the hinge. Look at the manual if you can't find it.
