    Are you sure it's the tubes (no bulbs fitted in a Pismo), quite often the
    inverter goes u/s as well. If you can't extract the part number from Apple,
    how are you going to get them to part with the tubes?

    IIRC, the tubes are available. Check the archives here for this issue,
    because I remember other people replacing their backlights with
    non-Apple tubes.

    As for part numbers, you would presumably find the manufacturer and/or
    part numbers (probably not Apple's, but something, anyway) on the tube
    somewhere, but that means taking the tube out and therefore, losing the
    portablility of your computer until you get new ones in (since it's
    apparently pretty complicated to get the screen apart, I wouldn't want
    to do it more than once).

    If it's the inverter, that might be a bigger problem.

    Remove the adjective to reply. Indiana is a noun.
