backlight has burned out can I replace it?
Can I replace the backlight on my MacBook
Is this a good question?
Do you see a faint image on the screen? Assuming so, the problem could be the screen itself, the inverter cable, or the inverter. The inverter itself is the least likely of the three to be the problem. In my experience with white/black MacBooks I'd say the screen is the most likely culprit, and the inverter cable second. But the inverter itself is almost never the problem.
This contrasts from iBooks, in which case I'd say the inverter cable is the most common cause of a dead backlight, and then the screen itself second, and then the inverter third. The inverter cables in iBooks are especially problematic for some reason.
