Re: Sony Vaio Screen gone all Yellow??
The CCFLs will color-shift as they age; the lamp will also color-shift
if the inverter voltage is drifting away from its design spec. So, it's
one or the other of the lamp or the inverter. The inverter can be a
user repair; it operates at high voltage but if you completely power
down (remove the battery also) it is usually safe. Sony inverters are
usually insulated. The lamp can be a user repair, if you can find a
lamp and that is difficult for Vaio laptops. You can find the entire,
assembled LCD panel for major $$. Check with
