Backlight issues are usually caused by a faulty inverter board or inverter cables, so I'd try replacing them. Does it work fine when connected to an external monitor?

I don't know I have never done that because I don't have the right cable

Do you know the name of the part so I can replace it



You can find the part on this website itself, look for "display cables" and "inverter boards". If you are unfamiliar with it, then I would suggest you take it to the store and get it fixed by professionals. Opening up the system would void the warranty - if you have one.
