Monitor shows up in system prefs but no video

I noticed a bit of a burnt electrical smell this morning when I first un-slept my MBP then no video from the Thunderbolt display. The Thunderbolt display *does* show up in Preferences > Displays, just no picture/video.

I've tried:

1. Pugging it into several different AC power sources, swapping the power cable out. Still no picture.

2. A different macbook pro as a video source. Still no picture.

3. Plugging a MBP into it with a separate thunderbolt cable. Still no picture.

So I'm wondering:

Does the fact that the TB display shows up in Displays on the MBP suggest/confirm that the PSU is OK? Does the fact that it shows up in Displays on the MBP suggest/confirm that the logic board is OK?

I'd like to be able to order parts before disassembling it.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I confirmed the display supplies power via magsafe.

I was also able to use a bright led flashlight and see that the LCD panel is displaying information.

I think it's the backlight that's not coming on. So we're back at wondering if it's the logic board or the PSU.
