Question about Acer Aspire 1710 Notebook
About after 1.5 year one lamp died in a month the second one.
What I can do with this problem?
This note is primarily in response to dank84:
The "backlight" is built-in to the display panel itself, so there is no way to replace the lamp itself. In most cases, it is the "ballast" that has gone bad. This is a small board either on the side or bottom ofhte top case. There are a number of reasons for this to fail. Many times a bad battery or weak charge can cause extra current draw that pops a soldered fuse on the board. Other times, capacitors fail. Still others, the onboard transformers that convert the "low" voltages to "high" voltages required for the flouresceent lamp to fire go bad.
The bottom line is that this is not a consumer type of repair in most cases. Depending upon the age of the laptop and the skills of the local servicer, this may not be an econimical repair.

You will need to get it checked at a shop because you might have a short that is causing too much power to go to fluorescent lamps and is making them die.
