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 blue ink splodge on my computer screen


Check the warranty - I recently got an acer lcd from a friend (purchased as package deal like a eMachine), he bought a new one, and found it was still under warranty.
Try "Auto Reset" on the monitor setup panel, on monitor - not on computer.
I forgot the proper name but one of the light emitting diodes might have gone bad which causes lines, streaks and blobs (same as on laptop screens).

We have an Acer Travelmate 4200 and the screen is too dark how do you brighten the screen??


Most laptops have a function key (F1-12) with a picture that looks like a sun. Press and hold the FN button and the appropriate Function key. You should get a "slider" to adjust the contrast and brightness..

Some laptops also come with a program to make other display adjustments. Look at the Control Panel to see if you have one of those on your list. If not, check the "Display" application on the Control Panel, and under "Settings" see if you can adjust contrast or brightness that way.

Acer aspire 5043wlmi laptop starts but know function of lcd but works on desktop monitor


The computer's power management system automatically dims the screen when using battery power, which is one of the power-saving features.
To adjust the brightness:
  • Hold down the Fn Key located at bottom left of your keyboard next to the Ctrl key, and adjust the screen brightness using the left/right arrow keys located at the bottom right of the keyboard.
If that's not it then

A dim or dark screen does not necessarily mean a bad inverter! It could be a faulty lcd backlight bulb, inverter cable, inverter, or in some cases a motherboard failure. If your still under warranty then I would get Acer support on the phone and see what they can do.
An Inverter converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).

I have a acer aspire 5100 and there is a crack on the screen, a friend of mine gave me a 15.4" screen from another acer (can't remember which model?) but the plugs you connect them up with wont fit my...


This is what one calls a potential 'can of worms.'
It could require a great deal of connector swapping and it isn't likely that Acer will allow you to access the necessary circuit diagrams to even make this possible.
It is highly unlikely that you can simply procure and install any kind of 'adaptor' and without knowing having the circuit diagrams, you are facing a near impossible task.
The backlight of an LCD screen uses high frequency, high voltage to supply the fluorescent tube(s) that provide light.
Incorrectly connecting lines could result in damage to both you laptop and/or the circuits contained in the LCD body.
