I think I have a problem with my laptop's (ACER ASPIRE 5610z) LCD inverter. A few weeks ago the screen began to flicker and more recently, goes completely dark. I can still faintly see the images on the screen when it is dark. Also, if I press the closed lid button the screen will lit up for a few seconds. If I press the button enough times I will randomly get a normally screen for an extended period of time (maybe half hour to hour) before the screens goes dark again. I have pinpointed a hissing sound to the LCD converter when this problem arises. Does this sound consistent with a bad LCD converter? I just want to be sure before I order the part. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
i have checked the connections and they are fine. I know it normally doesn't hiss, which is why I think it is damaged since it is hissing. it only hisses when the flickering is really bad or when i am trying to get the screen to come on by pressing the closed lid button. the times that the screen does work for an extended period the hissing disappears.
