Answer to: Screen Backlight on ONLY when lid is almost closed?Props to you guys for your huge effort and compendium of knowledge! I'll start with the cables and work from there! You've been a huge help, the both of you!
Answer to: Screen Backlight on ONLY when lid is almost closed?The thing is, the back light is the issue... not the display. I can plainly see windows on the screen, even color and my background image changing. However, the back light is what is only coming on when it's almost closed. As the computer "warms up", I can ever so slightly raise the computer screen. 45 minutes into this process, I can eventually open the lid all the way. But throughout this entire process, the back light will flicker, or turn off if I've opened it too much. I would imagine the Inverter isn't to blame, since it's responsible for the actual image appearing on the screen--not the back light coming on. Would I be safe to assume that it's a cable issue that would cause the back light to flicker, and only be on when almost closed? Thanks for all your input. Promise this is the last question! Ha!
