    Inverter question in regard to backlights

    Is it posible to fry an inverter if the backlight does not match or was NOT made for the specific inverter?

    I ask because I would like to get another backlight for my setup, but it has been really dificult. I have noticed its easier for me to find an actual screen than find the backlight.

    Plz shed some light on the subject.

    Nope, frying the inverter should not be a concern. However, you may find it difficult to physically install a backlight that was not made specifically for your display.

    I need a backlight for a Sharp LQ10D361. if you got let me know. Although it will be in a couple of weeks, because I just ordered a Sharp LQ10DX01 from Ebay. So if the one off this screen does not work I will definatly order from you.

    M with the info, or post away.

    As long as the replacement backlight it rougly the same size and brightness, you should not have a problem with the inverter.

    I recall having seen CCFL tubes in the Digikey catalog. Maybe they have something suitable for you?

    Some people here said they've used the ones from All Electronics
    It's under Lamps>Flourescent
    You can find the appropriate length tube there and it may work - and they're cheap!
