    Your backlight is LED, it doesnt need any invertor, just a power connection to the correct pins. You need invertors for EL and Flourecent backlights, normally used in large flat panel displays, not text displays.

    No, to get it to be backlit you need to connect it up. To get the background black and the characters illuminated if its not like that already you need to change the polarisation of the light. This is done by using polarised film, available from some camera specialists. Its not cheap, and you ned to remove the existing film. Do a search, this has been discussed a couple of times in relation to Nokia mobile phones.

    reversed lcd

    LOL, Ive just realised what you were thinking when you saw invertor? You wanted to use that device to invert the display! Invertors are used to create an AC drive voltage for FL and EL lights, they cant reverse anything.

    See the above thread about peeps reversing their displays.
