Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t 14.1" Notebook Laptop PC (Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 1.66 GHz, 1GB RAM, 100GB HDD, D... PC Notebook
You'll need to remove the battery in order to access a series of screws that loosed the keypad and the smaller pad on which the power button resides. after unscrewing all of them [except the two little smaller ones located on your right edge], unscrew the covers off the RAM compartment and Wireless card compartment. Unplug the RAM and wireless cards. The wireless card has two cables attached to it that run right into your monitor, unplug those. Now you may be wondering why we are unplugging things that arent next to your backlight, well if it wasn't for the cale that runs from your wireless card right into the display, we wouldn't have to go through all this trouble. NEXT, flip the computer over and peel off the smaller pad on which you have your power on button. The remove the keypad and gently pull out the black and gray cables for the wireless unit. [you only have to do this if you need some slack when working with the screen]. Next widen the screen to its max and you'll see 4 dark screws (2 on each hinge). Before you unscrew them, you'll have to remove the data/power line connector located right next to your power switch. It's got this little black thingie you could use to pull it off [unplug it], all the above only allows you to place the screen on its back thus makig it easy for you to remove the screws that NOW open the screen [phew].
Now, once you have isolated your screen, remove all the rubber pads that like the perimeter of the screen [you'll find your screws below them. Unscrew those you'll on your way to accessing the backlight.
As for how to remove the backlight, read through the manaul on this link, I am sure you either have a loose connection, or your backlight really is wasted and needs changing
