    remove the cover, then the earth sheilding cover then u unplug the tft lamps & interchange the left plugs to the right & the right to the left. test for ur result, if the right side is clear & the left is dark , ur tft lamp is bad.but if otherwise ,u change ur screen.

    for guest laptop, it has only one tft lamp .best solution is to remove ur lamp & check& if not possible u change ur screen.
