This is such a user error. I had the same problem on my 3100-1718. It was as simple as holding down the Fn key and using the left and right arrow keys to change the brightness... I am a goofball for ever letting this stay dark for a month !

First, plug a external monitor and toggle the screen to discard configuration or software problems. If the image displays correctly you have a problem either in the inverter, the LCD screen or its connection cable.
Open the bezel and check for loose or damaged connection cable. Look specially next to the hinge.
Try replacing the inverter also.
In case the problem is not the cable or inverter you might have to get a new LCD. You can have replacement parts and instructions here:

Monitor is dark but the laptop is working,


Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

Acer aspire 3000 display dim can i make it brighter?


You should be able to adjust the screen brightness using the "FN" key and the keys that have a sun on them with a arrow up and down. Or you can right click on the desktop and change the screen's brightness in the display properties. And sometimes laptops are set up to automatically lower the brightness when the power properties are set to power saver...like when running on batteries only and no ac power connected.

Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop


hi,

1, make sure that your laptop got power. how to do it ? it is easy, the power led (close to headphone jack) is on. and power button led should be on. Just in case you can't power on, please check ac adapter and power port on your laptop.

2. i assume you have power. now power it on and press f2 to got to bios. press f2 many times, it should make a beeps when you press it many times. once you get a beeps, press fn+right arrow to adjust the brightness of lcd. did you see something ? what i am looking is dark display.

If your display is dark, open the power cover (power cover is cover where you see power button), you need to remove 2 screws on that cover, on lcd hinges. After you remove power cover, you can see cable close to power button, remove it and check the display again, is it bright or still dark, if it is still dark it could be inverter or lcd.

if your power is on and you press f2 many times, it doesn't make beeps sound. it is called no post. Reseat memory and if this still not working, your motherboard is bad. if you have 2 memory installed, try 1 by 1. sometime the memory slot is bad, sometime memory is bad.

i hope this troubleshoot will help you to find out whats wrong with your laptop.
good luck

Acer aspire 5315


Hi,

Since the Acer Aspire 5315 works except that the display is dark, then it would be safe to assume that it is only the LCD display part that is the issue. Often LCD display (of laptops) are working but only that you can not see the actual display. One way to verify is to shine a flashlight at an oblique angle to the screen, semblance or part of the desktop could be seen. If the desktop could be seen (albeit very very dark background) then it could either be the CCF Lamps (cold cathode florescent) or the inverter that powers the lamps.

Often, the defective component would be the inverter. It is relatively easy to replace the inverted. It is sometimes more difficult and challenging cracking open the casing of the display panel of the laptop than replacing the inverter. Additionally, inverters are readily available online. It is also not surprising that inverters for other brands/models would also be used in your Acer Aspire 5315.

This would be a good place to start for inverter boards. This is a nice tutorial if you are considering a DIY.

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.

Hi Mikey,

Bottom row of keys, you will see on marked Fn. It is a specific color. Hold that and look at the top row of Keys. You should see one with a laptop screen, and a monitor on it. Tap the key once.
Each time you tap it, while holding the Fn (Function) key, it changes your optons. Once it will set your display to Laptop only, again will set your display to Monitor only, and again will set your display options to both. Play with the key combonation, and you may have to reboot with each tap.
Good luck.
