Hi everyone

The backlight in my Acer Laptop looks like it has gone so i am going to try and replace the inverter. Before i dive in pulling the laptop apart does anyone have a service manual for it.

Or know where i can download one from

TIA

Dave

Yes... i have basically worked it out just as you said, pop off the front screen bez and the inverter is there with two screews.

also the inverter looks like it sits on a sub frame that is fixed to the screen with two more screws one of these has come free and is sat inside the upper case.

this may be a very quick fix as this screw isone of the connectors for the inverter.

will let you know

I was lucky when my Invertor 'went' on my old Toshiba, I opened the front bezel and removed the invertor, had a look at it then replaced it, the laptop has worked ever since....just over a year! :)
