Having problems with your Acer Aspire 1800 Notebook ?

Faded out Acer LCD screen

\015 I have had some issues with my LCD screen & had it replaced about 1 year ago (it went psycodelic). Now the screen is really faded out. I will be sending it back to Acer (thank goodness we bought the extended warranty), but I was wondering if there is a way for me to set the "contrast/brightness"? I am not REAL computer savy, but I can muddle through step by step instructions.\015

Answers :

To set brightness, try the following.

press the function key (bottom left hand side on your keypad)
then tap the brightness key (just under your numerical keys with a little sun and + mark on it) this should sort your prob
It's not a contrast / brightness issue, even at the lowest setting the screen would look normal and probably not the way you're seeing it now. It's likely that the inverter or backlight went out on the lcd. You could possibly turn them up the highest level, but it would still need to be serviced by Acer for it to work correctly.

Glad to hear you've got the extended warranty.

Best of Luck!
