Acer Aspire display problem

    I own an Aspire 3682WXMi on bootup yesterday the display remained black. I hooked it up to an external monitor using the d sub port and instantly got a display. On closer inspection I found that I could see a very faint "Ghost image" on the display panel. Can anyone tell me if it's the LCD panel or the inverter, or maybe something else entirely ??

    Might just be a loose connection, but probably the inverter.

    Do you have the expertise to disassemble and replace?

    You should be able to source a reeplacement (Ebay?) for £15 - £25. Add something like £35 for fitting costs.

    Yea I bought an Inverter Toshiba Tecra A8 for $45 AUD ... its not hard to fit an inverter ... although remember it could also be backlights in the screen

    I think they are integral with the inverter on this model.

    Replaced the inverter but got no improvement. Problem remains, any suggestions ?? I'm about to bin the lot. Spending good money after bad.
