A friend asked me to fix his dark screen on his HP Pavilion DV4-1465dx. I have replaced the inverter and the screen/bulbs. No luck. Should I gamble (again) that the LCD cable is at fault? At least they're cheap.

 

A little background; apparently it was left in a hot truck and then dropped. Well, the cable does go right next to a freakin' hinge...

 

Thanks, Barry

I should mention that I was able to barely see the HP logo when it booted.

I just wish I had tried the cable before the new/used screen. It would have been much cheaper.
