I'm having dark screen problems, sounds similar to one you posted about. My laptop is Compaq Presario R3000 (I think HP owns Compaq nowadays).
Just wondering how your backlight issue worked out. Problem fixed? How much did it cost? Did you do the replacement yourself, and if so how big a job was it?
Thank, I'd appreciate any insight you might have.
PS Can you tell me where you found the replacement part?
