LCD on a700 not being backlit?
11 months ago

Hi everyone, recently I purchased a a700 that was advertised as 'unsure if working, no battery' so I picked it up for a measly $20. Got a battery off eBay for 8 dollars and thought. Why not, bargain if it works. Well. She turns on fires. Focuses and all. But..... The LCD is dim. Only able to be seen indoors under certain light and on an angle. (Not just brightness turned down) so it appears the backlight has died perhaps? Does anyone know if this is a fixable problem? Or would I need to purchase and install a new screen assembly? At this point I don't mind pulling it apart and attempting to fix as its a very minimal investment at this stage
Thanks in advance
