I had the same problem as you on my Acer aspire 5000. Turned out there was fluff on the hibernation switch. Once I 'de-fluffed' it the switch popped back out and hey presto my backlight started working again.

Hello,

If your laptop screen is dark, it could be the backlight,inverter, or bad lcd. You can test the backlight by starting the laptop and give it a few seconds to load and take the laptop in a dark room and shine a flashlight on the lcd and see if you can see any pictures or icons. If you can, you may just need an inverter to correct the issue, If not, you may need to replace the inverter and lcd both.

If you find that you need parts to correct the issue. I would suggest that you begin with replacing the inverter first, as they are usually less expensive.

If you can supply me with the model number of the specific laptop you are having trouble with and I can try to locate more information on replacing the parts.

Thanks

Dark screen on Acer laptop


Check the back light, it may also have an inverter issue, if it has a TFT screen. LED is different of course.

Acer aspire notebook 5517 screen goes dark randomly


Sounds like either a loose connection where the screen cable connects to the motherboard or that the screen is on the way out. Re-seat the monitor ribbon on to the motherboard.

Its not the inverter, it's your backlight. Hard work to change, sorry, and it might be cheaper/quicker to replace the whole lcd panel at $100 (£65)

My laptop is very dark and holding fn and the sun


The Back-light on your LCD screen is bad, your crystals aren't illuminating, so it is dark.... very dark.

You need a new LCD screen.

Sorry.

Acer Travelmate LCD screen went dark


The same thing happened on my HP. I ended up buying a LCD screen off ebay. That corrected the problem. New screens cost $150+. You can get one off ebay for half the price.
