:flowers: Hi, I have an Hp Laptop that I'm fixing for a client and the back light isn't working. Instead of stipping the computer first i thought i might be able to get hold of any ideas why it isn't working and how much shall i charge if under 100 only.


Becky :thumbsup:

No voltage, broken wire (insulation can still be intact), bad light. Make sure the standby/hibernate switch is operational
