I'm thinking the inverter is my culprit.
I hooked the backlight up to the inverter just to see if it even flashes for a quick second.
Right when the high pitched buzzing begins, it illuminates dimly on about 2" - 3" of a single side. After about 1.5 seconds it goes dark again.
Is the backlight getting worn out? Or is the buzzing, irratic voltage outputting inverter my issue?
