Hi Scott,

I've an IBM ThinkPad T23 Laptop. It used to develop a plain slight magenta screen when I was working with it. Lately, it developed a persistent plain magenta screen with column like lines. I thought that its the CCFL's lamp that is dead, though am not very certain.<g> Are there any possible causes and resolutions for this, if so, how can I fix them?

The Lap has my critical data that I need. How can I get it from there?

- Kit

That usually indicates that the CCFL is on the way out. It could also be the inverter, but those usually fail completely rather than fade.

You can connect an external display and still use the laptop even if the CCFL and/or inverter have failed. Scott.

Hi Scott,

This has worked out perfectly. I was able to retrieve my data.

Thanks, Kit.
