Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
There three issues with think pads that are common for this issue
1 bad inverter board
2 bad ccfl lamp in the lcd screen
3 bad video chip or other issue on the mother board
Inverters are not hard to replace and can be done by most people with patience and soft touch
ccfl bulbs require service techs with specialized skills to replace them, the lcd has to e taken apart or completely replaced
motherboards or video cards are much more complex issues and need service centers or techs with the requisite skills
