Sounds a lot like the backlight for it is just about dead. Nothing you've done can cause this to happen, and it certainly isn't a setting on the monitor or PC.

The backlight can be bought as a part, and replaced by a technician (or yourself if you have a rough idea what you're doing). By the time you find one, buy it, ship it, fit it... it might not be worth your time for the cost of a new 21" widescreen monitor.

You'd probably recoup some loss by selling it as faulty for parts too.

Still, be 100% sure before you do it... borrow a monitor and plug it in. I bet the borrowed monitor won't behave the same way. =-]

It depends upon the situation of usage or might the lcd monitor that was replaced somehow crash again. Its must be a brand new one and at least for several months warranty,if ever need a replacement again and it turns into the same scenario, well some components need to be check cause everytime it replaces new lcd,it always crash.might some shortage takes place.

My monitor has gone from a beautiful, sharp screen to one that is faded and blurry. It is only about 6 months old. Is there an adjustment that can be made?


Hello Katherine ann, hi, the faded and blurry picture is usually caused by poor LCD panel connections, due to loose contacts and screws. This is usually poor ventilation, or factory defects. Since you mention its only 6 months old, it is still cover for warranty, call your dealer for service.

Acer Aspire 5610. LCD very dim all of a sudden.


That sounds just like an inverter problems. There is a slim chance the bulb could be a problem, but I would replace the inverter. It is not too hard to do, no soldering involved.

You have to remove the screw covers on the frame of the LCD frame, and then carefully pop off the frame. The inverter should be on the bottom center of the screen.

Be careful, there is a high voltage in that little baby. Just get the full numbers, and do a search on the internet and buy yourself a new inverter to replace the old one.

no it is a board replacement at best, so i would look into replacing the vga board or getting a new monitor and selling the damaged one for parts with the issue listed
