Get a new inverter. You shorted-out the one that you had while trying to replace it while on. A new one is necessary now. Make sure the power's off, the battery's out and you're grounded to something.

When booting screen is black just about make out the IBM Thinkpad logo.

It appears you have a backlight problem. This fault is caused by either a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to determine the fault and possible fix. :-

Verical Lines in five or ten seconds after booting R50e ThinkPad

Possible loose connection from the inverter to the screen. you can try pushing the edges of the screen cover towords the center working your way around the problem area especially. But it could be just a bad inverter. Can you hook it up to external monitor? That will tell you if problem is before or after inverter.

IBM THINKPAD SCREEN DEAD

Hi,

Since you have replaced the inverter and the unit works with an external monitor, then probably problems would be with:
  • CCF lamps (backlight);
  • inverter triggers and/or B+ supply.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

IBM ThinkPad R52 Screen fades to black

Try using a flashlight at different angles and let me know if you can see a faint image of the desktop If so It is your inverter board that needs replaced.

Boot sequence

161 and 163 error means you have to change your CMOS battery. open the laptop, change the cmos battery and you should be able to set the date and time.

after which you can access the bios by pressing F1 upon boot up and change the boot sequence after that

How do I find my Thinkpad 2647 cmos battery, to change it?

It is unlikely to be the cmos battery as there are signs [music] that your laptop is booting - shine a light into the screen if you can see an image but it is very dark then it is likely that the screen backlight is not working. If this is the case the most likely causes are a faulty inverter or a faulty screen cable - both can be obtained as a kit quite cheaply on ebay if you have the ability to fit them.

Ibm laptop

I would suggest changing the inverter first as it it the simplest and cheapest solution. inverters for the thinkpad can be picked up on eBay for a couple of ponds.
