Hi guys,

you most likely would need to get a new inverter, you can get it either from IBM parts or places like ebay.

I have only seen one inverter with the lights burned out. I have seen many machines with a blown fuse on the motherboard that feeds the lights

I just repaired this one I am on now. Was not the inverter. Was in the lcd cable. Replaced it and all lights are active as should be. Before, all lights were out.
