Acer aspire laptop screen problem.looks like ink burst behind screen

Suggest you replace the LCD screen, pearlboslem. It is damaged.

If you post the Acer Aspire model number, I can find replacement LCD screens for your perusal, and should be able to find a Service Manual. (Free)
I will also guide you step by step the best I can.

This is on the Bottom of the laptop in a white Service Tag.

If you have never replaced an LCD screen in a laptop, the task may look daunting.
I assure you it isn't.

Generally the plastic strip that is above the Keyboard, and below the LCD screen, is removed.
Usually the Power On button, and LED indicator lights are in this plastic strip.
Different manufacturers have different names for this strip of plastic.
LED Cover, Power Button Cover, etc.

With a lot of Acer laptops the LCD screen can simply be accessed by removing the Display Bezel, and the plastic strip does not have to be removed.
(Some laptops do not have a plastic strip)

In the front of the LCD screen, and surrounding the LCD screen, is a thin plastic frame.
This is the Display Bezel.

Most display bezel's have rubber screw covers, going around the front of the bezel.
These are gently picked off with a computer pick, or suitable tool.
They have a type of rubber cement on them, and if careful, they can be reused.
(Stuck back into place)

The screws are just Philips head screws. Once removed the Bezel is slightly flexed, and popped off.

{The outside edges of the Bezel have tabs. Plastic protrusions formed out of the Bezel itself.
These tabs mate up with mating tabs in the Display Cover. The top cover of the laptop.

The tips of the fingers are put on an inside/middle edge of the Bezel, and used to gently ease this inside edge up a little. (Care is used so that fingernails do not touch/scratch the LCD screen)

With the inside/middle edge brought up enough to insert a second finger, the second finger slides down, and eases up on the inside edge again.

The tabs will start popping loose. The procedure is to keep moving along the inside edge with your finger tips, and keep popping the tabs loose. Once you are 1/2 way around, or so, the Bezel will pop free.

Some bezels do not have screws. The Bezel is flexed as above, so it is distorted, and the tabs pop free }

Once the Bezel is removed you are looking at the LCD screen, and how it is fastened to the Display Cover.

The LCD screen is an assembly. It is composed of layers. The layers are held in place by a screen frame. A thin metal frame that resembles a picture frame.

Usually on the left, and right side of the screen frame are metal brackets.
These are attached to the screen frame with two to four screws.
The screws are removed, and the LCD screen assembly is almost ready for removal.
There are cables (Wires) that have to be removed from the LCD screen, the Inverter at the bottom of the LCD screen, and maybe wireless antenna wires.

This gives you an idea on replacing an Acer LCD screen. Different models are shown.
Along with a pictorial guide, I may be able to find a Service Manual also,

At the end of every article for each laptop model, you will see in red -
Read the rest of the entry
Click on this for the full article on that model of laptop.

You can click on each photo shown to enlarge it.

Just to show you how relatively easy it is to replace an LCD screen, in an Acer laptop.

Post the Model Number, and I'll give you more exacting information.

Set the new screen onto the case and reattach the video cable and tape strip. Position the replacement inverter board at the bottom of the screen and attach the screw. 8.

Power button intermittant travelmate 2300 series laptop brand new power pack tried both power and charging lights on suspect switch but where can i get said power switch and who is agent in worthing area...

I don't know who has them in the Worthing area, but I have seen them listed on Ebay. (Not advertising for Ebay)
They list as an ON/OFF Switch Assembly, for the Acer Travelmate 2300. A small circuit board.
Proper name from Acer is just - Switch Board.

(Rectangular in shape, would be the easiest way to describe the circuit board. Has more than just the Power On switch. Also has the Launch Key buttons, that are next to the Power On button)

Two screws attach the board, and one end plugs into the motherboard. There are other components that need to be removed first.

1.Remove the AC adapter, (Charger), if plugged in. Remove the Battery. There must be no electrical sources for the laptop.

2.Buy, and wear an ESD wrist s-trap. (Censored word, s-trap)
Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
(I use an empty desktop computer case, and connect to the metal frame)
Average cost is $6 USD, and can be found in a multitude of places. (Radio Shack is one)

Electro Static Discharge
Your body carries Static. Static electricity will fry out the delicate hardware components inside a computer. You may not even see it, or feel it.
An ESD wrist s-trap helps to relieve your body of static.

3.The cover that goes over the Power On button switch, and Status Indicator lights, pops off.

It comes straight up. I use a flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, and ease up the side, Opposite of the Power On button.
As it comes up insert a plastic letter opener, guitar pick, or similar device to keep the gap open that you have created.

Use the screwdriver to go along the bottom edge of the strip, and head towards the Power On button side. (Bottom edge faces keyboard)

This shows the Switch Board with the cover removed,

Anyone know how to replace the screen on Nikon Coolpix L18?

Once you have all the screws out, seperate from the bottom first and then gently pry at the top sides to break the factory seal. The screen has a thin strip of black tape along the right edge you can pull off. Lift up on the screen to reveal the attached electronic strip attached to the board. It is attached with a grey strip that is hinged, just lift up to remove the strip. Replace with the new screen and reassemble your covers.
