Laptop Backlight Repair Services offered by Creative IT involves very skillful replacement of the backlight since the LCD is made up of very thin glass and needs to be handled with immense care. The backlight of a laptop uses voltages up to 1000 Volts. The Laptop/LCD backlight or a CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) has a life time of 10000 to 20000 hours and is driven by an inverter. Laptop Backlight is found behind the LCD screen and comes in various sizes, lengths, diameters and intensities. This fluorescent cathode is filled with mercury vapor which allows for the display of different colors on the laptop screen. Extra pressure applied on the tube’s ends can cause leakage of the gas.
