Replaced CCFL but now the video cable is bad?

#1 Post by fefrie » Wed Sep 11, 2019 9:41 pm

Have a T60 with bluetooth, and the bluetooth ribbon part ripped, which may or may not be a red herring, as when I replaced the CCFL the first time, it worked with no problems for a year.

It burnt out a year later, so I went on to replace the ccfl again, and the light would only come on for a blip, then turn off and never come on again.

I have another non BT T60 and ran both inverters on it, with the new CCFL, and it worked.

So the CCFL is good, the two inverters are still good, the only thing different between the two are the video cable and the panel itself.

Question, do video cables go bad? and can I use an XGA, non BT video cable on a SXGA panel? I lose BT functionality of course, but can different spec panels share the same video cable?

Still baffled that the cable can go bad. Should I check something else out?
