RE: unlit lcd

Did you fit it yourself? check the connections for the backlight. Normally a small white two pin plug with one white and one red cable. It comes out of the bottom of the screen, and needs to be plugged into the invertor.

Otherwise, it may be that it was not the screen that failed, but the invertor.
