Backlight not functioning properly
I have this iMac 14.1 and the backlight is not functioning properly. If i turn on the mac i have to wait 5-10 minutes before the backlight turns on, after that the mac works fine. If i restart the iMac the screen backlight is fine and keeps lit up, its only when its fully asleep.
Anyone have an idea of how to fix this problem?
I wanted to update this thread because maybe it will help someone one day. So i thought it was a back light problem ( witch it seemed like) but that was not the case. I called an Apple Tech and he told me it might be an logic board issue. Rented a screen from them to test if that screen worked on my iMac and it did. So i bought an all new screen, did not work. Then i though it might be the temperature sensor that attaches to the screen I tried a new temperature sensor, that also did not work. Turns out when i turned the video transmission cable around, it worked perfectly. So i am assuming that the cable got damaged somehow and that it makes good contact the other way around.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
