    Post Backlight Inverter How? What? Where?

    I am looking at purchasing a Sharp LCD of Ebay, but none seem to have Backlight Inveters, I was wondering if you can purchase spare ones, or if they are generic? If you could please give me any info you all have.

    Thank You

    Just about any backlight inverter will work. They take 12V and output 360~500V for the backlight. I belive www.allelectronics.com sells a two backlight one for $9.99

    I see the product that you are talking about, and I see the LCD that I have in front of me. I have a pink and a white wire running to a 3-pin connector (actually 5 (3 + 2 blank space connector - and the middle 2nd pin connection doesn't connect to a wire)).

    Kind of looks like this (where the U's are the connectors and the _'s are the blank spaces):

    Is there actually a positive and negative wire - does it matter how I hook up this inverter to the LCD?

    BTW - I have a Sharp 8.4" graphic TFT LCD. The inverter you list here will power the backlight for this LCD, right? I guess my newbee question is "does this inverter powers graphic LCD's, or is it designed for character LCD's??"
