Mac duo 1181 Replaced inverter and still no back light
Laptop works with external monitor, no backlight on laptop, screen display is working correctly(minus light). Laptop LCD would flicker on when it first boots up and then goes off. Or when I start it up from sleep it also flickers on for a moment. I Read through repair FAQ's Bought Inverter From iFixit and replaced it with no change. Inverter cable checks out.
Could the LCD (backlight) be bad even though it lights up for a moment during wake up and booting up as well as lowering brightness and then increasing it.
Could the replacement part I bought from iFixit be bad?
If it is the LCD ( backlight) why would it work for a moment and then turn off. Reset SMC with no change. This seems to be a common problem I don't see the successful resolutions.
What are my options.
PS love the Tool kit it will be paying for itself in a very short time.
Is this a good question?
