    Hi,

    I have an older laptop that I want to give to my son jsut for some browsing, etc... Seems to have a bad LCD backlight, any ideas for a good resource for how to do this? It's an IBM thinkpad 2647 (I said it was old) but everything seems to work fine except for the screen light..


    Any help/links would be appreciated greatly..

    With used laptops going for a couple hundred, you'll spend more trying to fix this than it's worth.

    Imagine your dismay when it turns out to be the P/S driving the backlight, and your $120 doesn't do the trick! :eek: ;)
