    I woke up this morning to discover that the backlight on the touchpad appears to have stopped working...

    Cold/warm boot doesn't appear to make a difference. Everything else appears to work (lol using a flashlight to see whats on the screen)

    A google search finds mention of the lcd screen being bundled(?) with the backlight and to replace one, is to also replace the other. (ie not a separate item)

    The cheapest (ebay) lcd replacement i've seen is about $70. (or should I just put $$ towards newer tablet tech... )

    Just curious if anyone has had to replace the backlight, and what was the experience?

    This may help.

    Edit: Nevermind, sorry bout that. Atleast I bumped up the issue. Just woke up.
