Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook ?

Laptop screen has become very dark

\015 Can read what is on screen but very difficult\015

Answers :

Hi there.
Chances are that the inverter (backlight) has gone, the inverter is located at the bottom of the screen behind the bezel (plastic screen surround) its quite an inexpensive fix if you take it to a reputable PC repair store, there could even be a chance that the socket that connects the cable to the inverter has worked loose and thats a 10 minute fix if thats the case.
If your confident enough to do it yourself please feel free to post back for help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
Check the top of the laptop for a limit switch that shuts the backlight off on the screen when you close the lid. It may be stuck.
\015\012Use a paperclip or something to move it.
\015\012If the switch appears good - the LCD backlight has failed. The remedy, unfortunately, is a new LCD display panel.
