SOURCE: Acer AL1512 LCD Monitor Problem

Hi,

Based on your description, the problem could either be:

  • CCF (cold cathode florescent) lamp; and/or
  • inverter.
Since the Acer AL1512 works fine except dark, we can rule out the video interface, power supply and ontroller. Again, the display showing (even dimly) is significant, it tells us that the components are working except that for some reason and most likely it is heat related. Possibly a cold solder, a loose connection and/or a dried up capacitor. You could actually verify this be shining a flashlight diagonally across the screen and some semblance of the desktop albeit dark would be slightly visible.

What is required is opening the LCD lid/panel to perform repairs. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

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.

Your PC video resolution is too high for the monitor to work.

You should set it to the monitor native resolution for best picture.

Ve an acer travelmate 4001LCi how do i check motherboard if there is a problem with computer when i power on? all i get is black screen, please help..


Diagnose the problem one step at a time.

1) Does the Power On LED light come one, and the Harddrive activity LED flashes?
Hear the fan running?

Attach an external monitor to the laptop. See if you get graphics on the external monitor.

If so the problem is in the Display Assembly. More on that in a minute.

If Not, the problem is the motherboard. The graphics chip may be faulty.
(If so the usual culprit is a loose mounting of graphics chip to motherboard )

You can use a VGA monitor for an external monitor. Another term is CRT monitor. Looks like a small TV.
OR, alternatively if you have an LCD flat screen with a VGA monitor cable, you can use it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector


1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF. Plug the VGA cable of the monitor into the laptop's VGA connector.
(Back of laptop)

Turn the VGA monitor on, let it warm up. Now turn the laptop on.

No display shown on the external monitor?
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, (Bottom Left), and tap once on the F5 key.
(Display Toggle-Over Key)

Still no?
Tap once more.
There are 3 options;

1) Just the display screen of the laptop
2) The display screen of the laptop, AND the external monitor
3) Just the external monitor



A) Display on external monitor?
Problem with the Display Assembly. (Acer = LCD Module)

The Display Assemblies main parts are;
1) The Display Cover. The cover that surrounds the LCD screen (Acer = LCD Cover)

2) The Display Bezel. The thin plastic frame in front of the LCD screen. Looks like a picture frame.
(Acer = LCD Bezel)

3) The LCD screen assembly. {An LCD screen is composed of layers} (Acer = LCD Panel)

4) The screen Inverter circuit board

5) LCD Panel brackets (2)

6) Video Cable (Acer = LCD Cable)

7) Hinges {2}
Plus various screws.

Primer:
An LCD screen does not produce light. It needs an additional light source.
The additional light source is a Backlight.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

An Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

90 Percent of the Time the Problem is the Inverter

Acer TravelMate 4000 series of Notebook PC - Service Manual (Free)

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Scroll down to the Travelmate heading.
Go down to the 4th line (Begins with 3230), and scroll across to 4000.
Left-click on 4000.

After you click on the file name (4000) it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.


B) No display on external monitor?
Problem with the motherboard.
Most generally the graphics chipset.

(ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_Graphics_Processing_Units#Mobility_Radeon_Series

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit )

The graphics chipset is mounted to the motherboard via a BGA surface mount.
(Ball Grid Array,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_grid_array )

To explain a BGA surface mount;
The older Intel Pentium 4 processors that used a Socket 478 processor socket, had contact pins on the bottom of the processor.

A chipset using the BGA surface mount does not have contact pins.
It has Solder Balls in place of the pins.

There is no socket with socket holes. There are Copper Pads.

The chipset is set into place with the Solder Balls lining up on the Copper Pads.
Then a specified temperature, and specified length of time is used to melt the solder balls.
This solders the chipset to the Copper Pads, which in turn solders the chipset to the motherboard.

Excess heat, due to the laptop is overheating, can partially re-melt the solder connections made, and cause a poor contact.

May be caused by the laptop is dirty inside, and the cooling capacity of the cooling components, has dropped tremendously.

May be due to a poor cooling system design in regards to the graphics chipset.

The cooling system may be adequate enough to keep the Processor within it's specified temperature operating range, (Thermal Limit), but NOT adequate enough to keep both, Processor AND graphics chipset cool.

Using the HP Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC, this video gives information on the problem in more detail,

I have a problem with acer lcd display, from 4/3 screen showing display remaining part is black? why it does happens?


Check your computer by connecting a spare monitor, if okay! The acer monitor has a bad LCD screen and is not cost effective to repair. If on the other hand the spare monitor shows the same problem, the Video Graphics Card is the issue in the computer.

Lcd display


Try connecting your laptop to an external monitor.Connect it with a vga cable to your monitor and press Fn+ monitor key(I don't know what it is for acer) to switch displays.If there are no lines on the external monitor then the problem is due to the notebook lcd.If there are lines then it is due to a driver.Reinstalling the driver should fix that then.
