Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

Screen is black, green light is on. Disk light comes on for a second when power button is pushed, and fan comes on briefly. Otherwise, nothing. Same outcome on AC or Battery or Both. I tried the remove-AC, remove-battery, hold-power-button 30 seconds, and no change under any conditions. What else can I do? Is laptop toast?


Answers :

Hi,

There are approx 6 reasons why this might happen:

\015\012
    \015\012
  1. The backlight has gone (Find a dark place and shine a torch into the screen and see if you can see an image in the background, if you see an image then the backlight has gone) - Needs a new backlight (Engineer to remove and fit) or have a new panel fitted.
  2. \015\012
  3. The panel has died - Need a new panel
  4. \015\012
  5. A cable has worked itself loose or is broken
  6. \015\012
  7. The inverter has gone - Need new inverter
  8. \015\012
  9. Long shot, the bios has got corrupted - Engineer could re-flash the bios
  10. \015\012
  11. Long shot, Mainboard onboard graphics has gone - Need new mainboard
My personal opinion is that the backlight or inverter has gone - Either way it needs to be opened up to repair it, consult a service centre and get a quote or repair it yourself if your up for it.

Thanks

My sony vaio vgn-fs285e will not switch on since this morning. Even if the AC adapter is plugged-in it still won't come on. None of the lights come on, it won't run with the battery pack or just AC power. I just wanted to find out whether there is something wrong with the connection in my AC adapter or with the power port on my laptop. Plus whether there is anyway I can fix this or do I just get my hard drives removed to access the info on it and recycle the laptop. Thank you
