I've had a backlight problem on my Toshiba Satellite A100 for a while now. After researching for days on the net i was sure it must have been an inverter problem. My screen would show everything perfectly fine for a little while but would then go black but the screen was still there as you could see when shining a torch on it and the whole system also runs fine when an external monitor is used. So i replaced the inverter but in the excitement i forgot to put this little flap under the screw when i put the new inverter in. (See picture 1) It should have looked like this (Picture 2) I closed up the laptop and booted up and it ran fine for about 10 minutes then the same problem started again. Im still almost certain its an inverter problem, could i have damaged the inverter by having the screw directly in contact with the inverter board? When i opened the screen back up and discovered that id forgotten that little flap i unscrewed the board , put the flap in place and tried again but still have the same problem...
Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
