This is a plasma - no inverter board - check power supply to make sure all voltages are correct - if so check your ysus and buffer - thats the culprit -

Sounds like a loose connection at the inverter board. Laptops use an inverter to step up voltage to drive fluorescent tube(s). The problem could be at the inverter or at the tubes.

Dark Picture after being on a short time


You should clean the pins on the end of the picture tubes. Use a piece of sand paper or emory cloth as the pins are probably tarnished.

Acer Laptop Dark Screen


Defective CCFL backlight may has the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp)
has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp


Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Dark picture


@ 6 years old I'd be willing to bet that it's time to replace the lamp. They lose brightness over time so that could be what the problem is.
