I have a T400 that had a CCFL backlight go out.
Pretty typical symptoms, pinkish hue before death and slow regression.
The thinkpad logo is still visible without the backlight so I know the screen is fine and external monitors will display an image.
I automatically assumed it was the backlight so I went ahead and had it replaced. To my dismay, I powered it up and no dice.
Next I tried the inverter... still nothing.
Thinking that my backlight job wasn't that great I found a new LCD and plugged it in. Still nothing.
I'm kind of at a loss right now. I'm hoping it's not the motherboard but I know for sure that it's not the inverter or the lcd screen.
Any thoughts on what the issue could be?
