Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
My screen kept getting darker and darker until now when I cna only see it with a flashlight. Any ideas on what the problem is or how/how much I can fix it for?
Sounds like you need the backlight in your display panel replaced. Unless you know how to replace it yourself. You will need to take it into a repair shop. Quick check.. if you have a monitor plug it into the back of your laptop. Hit the fn + display key.. one the (f)function keys you will see a symbol resembling a monitor. If the display is good on the monitor. It's most definitely your backlight. Now in some cases the inverter may go bad so both have to be chacked. About the cost the backlight are not that expensive from $20 & up. The inverter is a little more between 38-70 bucks. Prices vary. But the replacement of either may be costly. Check around a few local shop and ask what the cost would be to replace the backlight and or the inverter for your model #. They will probably want to diagnose themselves to be sure that is the problem. Some shops give free diagnostics..then some do not. Also askif they determine it's definitely the backlight is youronly problem you can ask if you purchase the part(s) how much would they charge to put it in.
