CF-18 backlight

#1 Post by Barney »

I have 2 CF-18, the backlight failed on one.

Did some research and most links that I found point to the backlight inverter.

So I did a one for one swap, still no backlight, the original (suspect) inverter works perfectly in my other CF-18.

So it wasn't / isn't the inverter.

Any ideas?

It's the bulb at the bottom of the screen. You would have to either find a busted screen and I think you can rob the bulb from the bottom of the screen and replace it. (It has been a long time since I messed with any bulbs, I can't remember how easy the bulb it's self pulls out.)

Option two find a 18 to 19(Mk1,2 only) screen and swap it.

Thanks for the reply.

So much for fixing my beater, it's getting stripped now.
