Screen back lite does not work, switch is faulty, well out of warranty. Have taken it apart but removing the switch merely disables the screen entirely. putting some copper wire in to jump the switch merely turns off the back lite permanently

Re: Acer 8100 tm screen switch broken
i would assume somebody has to open the Laptop and replace the switch alltogether. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there is a third partyAcer Repair Service. However, if you want to do it yourself, the part is
available on ebay. Here's an Acer Repair guide. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you.

The screen that does NOT flash will need replacing.
It may look fine and dandy but there is still an issue.
The reason for the flash is that when switched on the DS lite performs a qucik check of the screens, if there is an issue the unit will switch itself off again.
My answer is, judging that you have said you have taken it apart to have a look that you are willing to repair it yourself. Have a look on ebay for the relevant screen (plenty of people on ebay stock them) and then replace the screen that does NOT flash.
This should solve your issue.
If you need a guide to replace the respective screen click on my name to access my profile and at the bottom of the page you will find my guides.
its possibly a software issue, babe theres some corrupt data with the os, if it still has a warranty i would recommend sending it in for repair. im pretty sure they only charge 40-50usd for repair otherwise and it would give you a chance to purchase/renew your warranty through them
I can't seem to find any posts online from other owners of the TM 2480 who have tried taking apart their laptop. Disassembling a laptop is a bit of an intuitive business and you have to take it slowly and carefully if you're not that familiar with taking apart laptops.
Again, wouldn't be surprised if doing any of this voids warranty and such. Take your time if this is your first laptop tear down. Remember, cold weather+fluffy sweaters=static!! so ground yourself b4 touching the internals.
Hi Chances are your touch screen is faulty. If you have warranty then send it in, if not you can try and repair it yourself, its pretty easy to do.
Buy yourself a new touch screen (I use ebay at around £3-£4 per screen), take apart your Ds lite, open the respective flexi-cable connectors, remove the flexi-cables from the motherboard, CAREFULLY peel the touch screen away from the bottom screen, peel off the surround, place it onto the new touch screen, attatch the new touch screen to the bottom screen, reverse the dismantling process and with any luck you have sorted out the problem.
If you get a post screen with Acer written on it at startup, and the screen turns off when loading the system (Windows or Linux), then you need to reinstall the system using an external USB cd unit and the recovery disk that was provided with your Acer.
If instead the display has no screen at all , try connecting an external monitor to test the laptop.
If you get picture on external monitor, then the Aspire One has a faulty LCD ribbon cable or a faulty LCD display or inverter.
If you get no picture on external screen , then you have a faulty motherboard, possibly faulty video chipset on motherboard.
In any case check your Acer One warranty, all the faults listed are covered by Acer warranty for one year. Contact Acer at the number listed on documentation to have the computer repaired.
Whew, boy. Well, I've never taken one apart before, but why don't you go ask those nice people over at Nintendo for a how-to document. I would guess that you just need to take it apart and stick all the cables attached to the old screen onto the new screen, but I wouldn't want to render the DS useless, so follow my instructions at your own risk.
