Would you describe the problem in greater detail? Is it the top or bottom, is it gradual? Did it happen slowly or all at once?

even if this looks like another orphan - let's try it:

it could be a inverter problem or one of the ccfl's is dead.

the ccfl is not a simple bulb - but replacing is possible - if you have the right part.

to rule out the inverter - i can only recommend this posting from richdave: What part number and how do I replace the backlight?
