    I would try sealing the computer in a large plastic bag with a few silica gel bags. If the issue is moisture, that should cure it.
    PCjr, DTK PC-XT Turbo, 386DX 33, 486 laptop, Pentium 120, Pentium III 500, various old laptops, Commodore Colt, all working. I also have a 286 that I need to see if I can repair.

    A thought was to dismantle the LCD and place it in a food dehydrator for a week and see what results you get.

    I was thinking to do the same...
    My Idea is to measure humidity and temperature, let the computer home for example for 10 minutes and make a photos.
    Then to put in a vacuum bag with some silica bags in it and wait for some times... I was thinking about a months... let's see!

    also check the voltages from the high voltage wiring that goes to the lamp.
    if they are low maybe you need to recap the board.
    I agree with this. I think a replacement is needed.

    A weak CCFL will result in either the backlight inverter shutting down due to excessive loading, a pink tint as the tube initially strikes but is low on mercury (it normally consumes the mercury in the tube over its life) or quite simply the screen will be evenly dim and not just in the corners as seen with Tunnel Vision.
