LCD Power Inverter Problems?
I have an Averatec 3700 Laptop that had a bad LCD power inverter (the screen would momentarily flash on when power was connected, but would then immediately shut off). I ordered a replacement inverter but when I plugged it in, the backlight was so dim you almost couldn't tell it was on at all. It slowly warmed up to where the screen was usable, but the backlighting is uneven and much darker on the left side of the screen. The new inverter is running extremely hot to the touch. Hot enough I think it could cause a burn if you touched it long enough.
Does this sound like a problem with my new inverter or something else?
