After powering the laptop on, the backlight is on for 3-10 seconds. If i press the lid switch and release, it will turn the backlight on again for 3-10 seconds. The time it remains on is based on how long i hold the switch pressed but it still varies.

Looking for a way to fix it so it can remain on, preferably just removing the switch if possible.

Update: didn't think to search more before i posted this, found another thread with a similar problem. Will have to change the inverter board.
