  • What exactly does the Inverter do?

    O.K, I have a 10.4 VGA LCD with a Chips65555 controller and 2 bad inverters for it. he screen works fine just no back light. I have had no success finding a replacment inverter for this LCD, which got me to thinking. In theory couldnt I just find a small flouresent light that I could run off of 5v or 12v and rig it inside the enclosure to use as a back light? Has anyone else here tried anything like this? The screen is nice and I really hate to let it sit collecting dust. If not, then I guess I'll have to trade/sell the unit for say a GPS unit or something. Any thoughts?
