Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook
I have an IBM R51 Laptop that has a darkened screen. I can see it ok if I use a bright flash light. Is it possibly just a back light bulb ? And if so can I replace it myself ? I think it is a 14.1 screen ? Barry
You don't have to replace the screen as you can see a fain image on it.
It could be 1 of 3 things, 1st...... the plug that fits into the inverter has worked loose because of opening and closing the lid. 2nd and 3rd, it could be the inverter itself or the inverter coil which is defective.
If your machine is out of warranty and you fancy having a go at this yourself the inverter is located just under the screen behind the bezel (plastic which surrounds the screen) just unscrew the screen, remove the plastic and check the connection to the motherboard and screen.
The inverter looks like an elongated circuit board.
Good luck and please post back if you need anymore assistance.
