Ccfl ( cold cathode flouroscent lamp ) is the backlit feature of the lcd panel.\015\012\015\012If you see a blank screen but do see the output on the external monitor then you sure have to take it to the hardware tech to get the inbuilt LCD panel checked.\015\012\015\012it seems to be a electronic failure.\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012Ashish.
