    I have an IBM Thinkpad T42. The screen does very dark while booting up, even has a pink hue at times, then goes very dark. You can faintly see the screen. If I move around the contact switch at the upper left corner of the keyboard, the screen will light up but will not stay. I replaced the inverter last night and it worked fined. I turned the computer off. This morning, when I attempt to turn on, back to the same problem again. If i wiggle the contact button, it lights up but will not stay on.

    Can you tell me what the problem?

    Thanks

    Please do not post duplicate threads, one thread is enough for one problem. Also do not post in other people's threads asking for help. I've deleted 2 of your duplicate threads and moved another post to this thread.

    This is not a "Live" chat, you need to be patient for an answer and if someone has one they will post.
