Sounds like LCD or the backlight for LCD. Is it truly black ? No very faint image? I'd try replacing LCD and if this doesn't give bright image and dim/ dark image remains then it's most likely the backlight on the motherboard which unless you are highly skilled in microsoldering isn't cheap!

Don't forget to power off using power button/ slide to power off or you may blow backlight if it isn't already
