Question about Televison & Video
I have a gateway 400sd4 laptop and the screen went dark. I can see faint images. I this just the back light, inverter, other? Can I repair it myself or do I need to take it in for service.
Yes you are 50% right. The problem with your laptop is either the inverter module or the backlight itself. If you have a little electronic background and have the correct tools, you might be able to repair it. Although, its more practical to replace it with a new one. It is normally located on the lower front part of your LCD panel. If you can remove the front cover of the display, the you will find it on the lower part. It normally have two connectors, one comes from the mainboard, and another (2 wires) goes directly to the backlight.
