    Default Thinkpad 755C with dead backlight: Worth replacing? Possible to replace?

    I got a pile of 486s from a coworker earlier: Two AT&T Globalysts and a Thinkpad 755C. The former two didn't have any clearing issues, a dead HDD on one globalyst aside, but the Thinkpad's got a dead LCD backlight. Is addressing that a fool's errand or is it worth a shot? Are there any common part numbers i should be on the look out for?

    I can't remember exactly which model, and it may actually be the 755c, but I have nos complete lcd assemblies. Case plastics and all. 25$ + shipping if interested. I sold 2 or 3 a while back to a very happy customer. I'll look up the relevant model/s.

    Whoops I think these are specific to the 700c. Apologies.

    Anyone know where the inverter board is? The pertinent IBM Mobile Systems HMM doesn't say a lot on that note.

    EDIT: Inverter's part of the LCD assembly. This bodes well for my hopes that a panel swap will suffice.
