Acer 501t Set LCD Panel ID - Acer Computers & Internet

Posted by on

  • gmbrezzo Aug 06, 2008

    I transfered a working LCD from non working acer laptop to a working one that had a broken LCD. on startup the new LCD worked fine. I got a bad battery warning on post. I turned off the notebook, pulled the RTC battery from the old notebook and put it in the new one, (at same time exchanged the HDD).

    Turned on the new notebook and the screen did not light up.

    I plugged in a CRT monitor and that worked fine. On reading the field service manual the instructions say to set the LCD panel ID using the Utilities diskette. This I do not have and cant find a download anywere. Please help.

Acer red light battery


Yes, I know. Aspire 5100 series of Notebook PC, not the Aspire 5230 series. I am looking at the Service Manual for the Aspire 5230 series right now, and the above link is a good basic pictorial guide.

Drop down to the subheading - Aspire 1200. (1200 in Blue)
Go down to the 6th line, scroll across, and left-click on 5230 in blue.
(Takes few seconds before the first page comes up.
In the PDF file page number box at the top, go to Page 119)

2) If you mess up with the connection of the LCD Panel Cable, to the LCD Panel, (On back), your laptop will not power up.
Those tiny contact pins on that cable's connector, must line up exactly, and be plugged in tightly to the LCD Panel.
Not plugged in tightly? You won't see it visually. You have to physically check.

Also use the old tape that was there, to tape over the connector once installed, on the back of the LCD Panel.
Ripped it all the way off? Oops! Use some new tape. (Not duct tape, scotch tape, or medical tape. Box tape with strands in it)

3) Connector of LCD Panel Cable, connected tightly into motherboard?

4) Screen Inverter wires connected? Connectors are keyed differently from each other, BUT, are they connected correctly?

5) Why was the LCD Panel replaced? Damaged? Did the LCD Panel Cable receive damage? Did you perform a cursory visual inspection of it's sheath, at least? Sheath showed ANY damage, did you perform a continuity check of each wire in the cable, with a multimeter set to Ohm's? (LCD Panel Cable unplugged from motherboard, and LCD Panel, of course)

6) If there was damage, did the screen Inverter receive damage?

7) Connect the LCD Panel Cable's ground wire/s back to THE ground screw/s? Good bright clean connection area for those eyelet ground terminal/s?

8) Did you crossover the new LCD Panel to the old LCD Panel, to make sure it is a direct replacement?
A screen Inverter, and an LCD screen, (LCD Panel for Acer), are a MATCHED unit.

9) AC adapter plugged into power, and plugged into laptop, along with the battery?

Post back in a Comment, and if none of the above is the problem, we'll go on from there.

While this site does ask for an email address and has an image security validation (you have to type the numbers shown) I believe you will get the manual in a pdf format.

I can barely se the desktop,it is very dark. acer aspire 1710

It sounds like you are or have lost your backlight. In most cases this can be the inverter, it sits under the lcd panel behind the lcd bezel. Unless the unit was dropped or suffered a shock of some kind, I don't think it would be a broken ccfl backlight bulb. Check for loose connections at both ends of the inverter, sometimes these connectios get pulled because they run through the hinges and can get caught or rubbed bare. Below is the link to the service guide that will help in the disassembly. Inverters can be bought on Ebay for under 25 bucks. There is always the chance that this is the ccfl bulb, it is built into the lcd panel itself and therefore it is more cost effective to replace the entire panel then try to disassemble the lcd panel and replace the ccfl bulb. Good luck

HD Where is he ?

The HD is underneath the palm rests in a drive cage. You'll have to take the laptop completely apart to get to it.

Usual steps:
- Remove all screws from the bottom of the laptop
- Remove keyboard from laptop
- Remove any other indicated screws to disengage top and bottom of plastic shell
- Remove top plastic shell
