I have 2 HP omnibook XE3 laptops that are 16 months old. One has a failed back light on its' screen and the other has shown early signs of a pending failure! Ironically, they are just 4 months beyond their warranty!
I imagine that the TFT screen just plugs into a multi-pin adaptor inside the lid? If this is so and a "reasonably competent" person could do the job - can anyone advise if it is possible to get either a new backlight or (as I suppose)a new TFT panel. If this is possible can you suggest a source and approx. cost?
I suspect you're right after all, why let someone carry out a repair on something small like a screen backlight, when you can get them to scrap the whole machine and buy a new one! Or is that too cynical of me?
I will not be buying HP again, that's for sure.
