Yes it does have backlamps.
They are soldered to the PCB so you will need a few tools like a soldering iron, philips screwdrivers, solder, and some replacement lamps. Replace the lamps with this type from Farnell electronics. They have a 15000 hr life expectancy and last alot longer in the unit. I have tried many types of lamps over the years, and found these are the best choice if you want them to last.
FOR YOUR SAFETY-BE SURE TO DISCONNECT FROM THE MAINS BEFORE REMOVING THE LID
To get access to the lamps, you need to pull the main PCB out of the chassis to then get access to the bottom side of the printed circuit board where the 2 screws that retain the white lamp reflector assembly. Change both lamps with the type I mentioned,
Be careful not to flex the LCD display that is now exposed, it is quite fragile with the support of the lamp reflector cover no longer in place. ... reverse procedure to reassemble and away you go.
I am more than happy to talk about this solution with you further. Just ask away. Cheers

I recently bought a second hand C541i as is and I had the same thing; no power up. I took it to a service centre, they re-soldered the connecting pins for the transformer socket. It now works well.
After that I realised that it could have been the problem with the Burson Audio clock that was installed buy the previous owner but had intermittent playback problems. A study of the schematic revealed that the +12v rail for the clock, is from a different secondary coil winding than the +5v for the DAC etc. And the -12v for the analogue output stage could be from a different pin on the connector as well.
I hope this helps.

The tray belt raises the laser to proper focal length at the end of closing the drawer. This demands more grip from the belt. If the belt is sloppy, it will slip at this point, even though the drawer is shut. Took two years of repeatedly cleaning lasers to notice this.
