Replacing your inverter may fix a dead backlight.
Things happen in runs. I had two clients with the same model Macbook, and each computer had the same problem. The two clients came to me within two days. It seems to be an unlikely coincidence, but maybe it's not.
One computer's display didn't light up at all, though the client said he could get . . .
My son's white Macbook's lcd was not lighting up. The screen was black and the only way to see what was going on was to put a flash light to the screen.
