    Hi, I have a 15" AL PB and its seems the backight is going out. All of a sudden the screen went dark. Not black, but dark, I could still see the windows and stuff if you look hard. When I bring the brightness down to nothing, then up 1 click the screen is fine, just a tad dark, no flicker. But if I go up to 2 clicks of brightness, then it flickers. As I increase brightness the flickers get faster, untill it goes dark again. These flickers are just really fast no backlight/backlight/no backlight/backlight. Not lines of anything, just dark/light.
    So I assume its the back light as I have reinstalled OS X thinking/praying it was just a preference problem to no help. Does anyone have any idea on how much this might cost to fix. The usual out of warranty.

    Thanks for you help

    This really is an issue you need to take up with AppleCare ..
