Step 6: Remove Inverter Board and Connect LEDs
Now that I have replaced the CCFLs, I can remove the inverter board as long as it is completely separate from everything else. My LED strip runs off of 12VDC, so I had to find a source and neutral point to solder the wires to. From my experience, this is a very common voltage in LCDs, but make sure to find a 12V source that is off when the screen is off and on when the screen is on or else the LED strips will always be turned on while the screen is plugged in. Also, make sure it is capable of supplying the necessary current for the LEDs needs. I wanted to use a fuse on the 12V line to be safe. Once I attached my wires, I needed to secure them so they don't move around or get pinched during the final reassembly. I could now continue to reassemble the screen until it is completely put back together.
