-when dp ribbon disconnected the fans go full blast.

-when all the cables are connected the internal screen is discovered as online by system info and starts with internal as main screen (4th led still off).

-when disconnected from inverter board screen is not discovered.

the Mac works fine with external display.

Ok, so after bit more testing it turned out that the problem was onboard DP connector, all working as intended now.

So, I have an imac 5k that has no backlight. Did you just change the lvds cable? Or did you have to solder? Thanks!

LED 4 - Indicates that the computer and the LCD display panel are communicating. This LED will be ON when the computer is turned on and video signal is being generated. If the LED is ON and there is no image on the LCD display panel, the LCD display panel or LED driver board might be installed incorrectly or need replacement.

I know all that, I've service manual for this model, the 4th led is NOT illuminated and before I splash out on new inverter board I'd like to find a way of diagnosing it, eg test the pinouts.
