Flickering backlight after Inverter change
I have a black Macbook Core Duo A1181 (last 4 # of serial are: RVMN) running Mac OS X 10.6.8
I started having trouble with the backlight on my screen a few months ago.
Basically, my monitor flickered badly for the first minutes of startup, every startup or every time I brought my laptop back from an extended period of stop.
After some "warming up" the backlight returned to its regular functionality, save for some seconds of flickering every now and then.
I then replaced the inverter board, a month ago. That did not entirely fix the problem, even if it lessened that somehow.
Currently, after going awake from stop, my monitor still flickers, but for a maximum time of five minutes. When it does that, it never goes dark as it did before, it just seems to jump between the maximum brightness setting and the one before that.
After a while, it stops. But whenever I shut down or put the laptop in stop for more than a few hours, the trouble returns. Seems almost like the display "needs" to reach some heat, or tension, or whatever.
I managed to replicate the issue only by placing the laptop in stop for some hours... a short burst of "Stop and wake up" doesn't affect that.
I'm trying next swapping the LCD Panel
Is this a good question?
