Default ebay CCFL backlight issues

i purchased 2 ccfl backlights from same store on ebay.
chacked the feedback it was good, no issues.
first one came in turned out to be shorter(dell700m)
and it was darker than usual and had kinda bluish hue, like the light was not powering up enough.

i thought it was the laptop itself.

second light i ordered for my dad's thinkpad t41. it was the right size fit perfect.
i power it up and again its bluish hue and dimmer than original backlight.

the original was on its way out and had a red hue when starting up and would shut off after a while.

so i am puzzled why this could be.

is it the problem with the light or video card?

or are they sending me cheapazz lights that are just not bright enough?

Check the ribbon cable that links up to your video card. Sounds like it might be little loose.

i havent touched the ribbon cable on T41.

as for dell 700m i had another one of those so i swapped the monitor and inverter and it was still same.


the picture looks kinda cloudy and bluishinstead of white.


i dont know if its possible to misalign the layers of LCD screen
