Satellite A25-S279 screen flickers and goes blank after 5-10 secs

\015 Problem with my Satellite A25-S279. Yesterday images on the screen became very red, then later the screen started to flicker. I shut the laptop down after a while, today when I restarted there was basically no picture. I connected an external monitor, I get a good picture, and by playing with Fn F5, I\342\200\231m able to get a picture on the laptop LCD, but it only lasts about 5-10 secs (on the external monitor no problem, image stays). I can see a very faint image on the LCD. Flashed the BIOS to v 1.4 (latest) to see if that helped, no luck. Since I get a good image for about 10 secs, I assume the backlight is good and cable connections are good, and that it is the inverter that fails after a few secs. Is that a good diagnosis? I don\342\200\231t want to buy a new inverter only to find the problem is backlight or cables or something else, so advice is very much appreciated.\015
