Inverters have not been used in Apple laptops for six years now since they stopped using CCFL backlit screens that require AC power to operate, so good luck with that. Backlight flickering is going to be liquid that got sucked in to the vents where the LCD backlight circuitry is on the corner of the board. Open bottom cover, observe, and clean.

thankx zzz. It worked.


Well, first it worked but after a day it has again started. Any ideas zzz?


Take pictures. Good pictures, no cellphone junk. My psychic guess across the internet is ball A5 of U7701 or pins 3 and 4 of the LCD connector.
