A slowly dimming screen - is it the inverter or CFL tube?

I have a really old MBP and I have the brightness cranked up all the way. I did a search and found out that the inverter could be bad but someone mentioned that if it got dimmer slowly than it is a CFL going out. Any ideas?

Thanks Mayer, I saw that also but that was where I found the discrepancy. Bac said bulb and Lemerise said it either works or not. I'll wait for bac to respond. Thanks!
