Hello everybody, I have an 24" iMac, of which the screen doesnt work. But, when I shine a very bright light at the screen, I can see my desktop. So the screen is working, only there is no backlight. I like to fix this! Mac is out of warranty, and I have am not that bad with electronics; so its not a problem to take out the screwdriver and the soldering iron My question is if the inverter is responsible for the backlight? Or is there another component that might be causing this? I think the graphics card is fine, because I can see my desktop. Also, when I attach an external LCD screen via the display port, it works fine. So I think it has to be something in the LCD panel itself, like the inverter.... or the cable to the inverter... or... the inverter cable is connected to the logic board, so theoretically it could be something on the logic board as well.....? Can someone please shed some light (haha word-joke... shed light... backlight....... never mind ) on this issue? All the responses are greatly appreciated!
