Screen black but external works OK
I'm debating on whether this is a dead LCD display or a bad video controller. Since the external display work (VGA adapter to Dell 19").
System Profile does not detect any displays connected, though the external connection *does* work.
I've found the video adapter 661-4673 for about $190, and this is definitely the cheaper of the 2 components. A replacement LCD is about 3x that. :(
I checked the graphics ROM version and it matches the newer version mentioned in the Apple support doc DL71
Any suggestions on diagnosing this further?
This had been running 10.5 and I'm in the process of upgrading to 10.6.
Is this a good question?
