SOURCE: Ihave an acer 9410Z laptop the backlight won't

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have 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 or appear black. 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 the monitor up first then the laptop, 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.

Check Acer's website for a BIOS update. I've seen a LOT of laptop's screen issues been related to the power saving settings in the BIOS. Sometimes screens going black very fast and not working properly can be caused by that.

The Power Inverter could also be the problem which you wouldn't be able to repair yourself. If you purchased it at Best Buy you can take it to them and they could get that fixed for you (at a charge if there is no warranty with that).

SOURCE: My FN+F6 doesnt keep my screen on the laptop open

Change the settings from the display settings panel. (Right click on the desktop and go to display settings)
You should see 2 monitors graphically represented there. 
You can make the monitor that is greyed out active by right clicking on the monitor, and selecting active.

SOURCE: Screen on Aspire 3000 is very very dim

Hopefully it is this easy. The Fn and left arrow combination should dim the screen. To brighten the sceen, try Fn and right arrow.

If this does not work, then try other combinations using your Fn key to make sure the Fn key is working.

SOURCE: black blank screen of my Acer aspire one notebook

See http://macles.blogspot.com/ . I had similar symptoms and shipped it off to Acer for repair and it was returned with new level of BIOS as only repair. The macles blog has directions/links for upgrading the bios on an apparently dead machine, if you'd like to try it yourself.

My laptop comes on everything lights up except the screen


it would be the blue lettered fn and f6 keys, hold fn key-then hit the f6 key to toggle display. otherwise try and reset the notebook- take out battery and unplug the unit. then push and hold the power button for 60 seconds. then put the battery and plug it back in, and try and see if that works. this has worked on my acer 5100 several times! the screen could have a problem also. this is what i worry about every time this happens 2 me. good luck! if i can help more reply.

Battery or Screen problem


Solution? - not sure yet but having read solution by Hector_ahab, tried various F() buttons in conjunction with Fn button. Pressing Fn with F6 switches between black and normal screen on my Acer Aspire 5920. Fingers crossed!

Black screen after windows xp screen nothing else


Sometimes the function keys get depressed by accident and it takes away your display. Press the FN+F5 and FN+F6 three times each and see if your display comes back on.

My FN+F6 doesnt keep my screen on the laptop open


Hi,
I think you're trying to output the screen to external monitor right ? So when you press Fn+F6 this will output to external monitor only but if you do it again it will output to both (External and you LCD) and if you repeat the step again you're back to normal.
goodluck,takecare.

Acer aspire 3050 black


refer to ur user manual to see which key for brightness e.g.fn+f 9
(reduce brightness)if havnt got one can easily download one of net.try to swich screen to monitor.connect external moniter and press fn+f 5.(refer to manual maybe different key)
press down and release screen lid button see if any response.if all fail need to disassemble.
remove screw in about middle of pc underneath.this ia retainer screw for key board.remove screws dirrectly behind screen to remove plate with buttons.then can get access to keyboard and lift away (do not disconnect it just rest it on screen or front of pc )check cables from mother board to screen.check inverter.
all these are worth checking but initially sounds like inverter faulty.
