Welcome to the forum!
Before this episode, has your LCD been reddish/pinkish on the initial boot?
Good luck and let us know.

I'm having the same issue and did get the reddish/pinkish color upon boot before the screen went black. How do we resolve this? Are there any service centers that can have this repaired?
Thanks for your help in advance.

Welcome to the forum, pkohli!
The backlight in your LCD has died. You can either replace the CCFL itself (very tricky, not for beginners), or the whole LCD. When these machines were in warranty, IBM used to swap complete LCDs.
Hope this helps.

Have you tested your machine with an external monitor?

I'm going to say bad inverter or backlight. Inverters are cheap and easy to replace. All the instructions as well as part numbers needed for an eBay (or Google) search can be found in the HMM that can be downloaded from here:
