My display is dark

MacBook Air 13" mid-2009 A1304

All of a sudden my display went dark. Hook it up to an external monitor and it appears there.

Any ideas on what I might try to fix before a total replace?

Disassemble then disconnect and re-connect the display cable. Also check the length for kinks or fraying especially in the display hinge.
