today in fixing hardware that other people would (or did) throw away: 10 year old laptop, screen completely dead (no picture, no backlight). troubleshooting took a lot of time, we finally figured out that both lcd & inverter had the same power supply, and while power was present at the mainboard, it never reached the screen. there was one broken strand in the cable - fixed that one & it's alive!
