I have no idea what happened to my Window 8 Lenovo Laptop p500 touch . I'm assuming the inverter is loose or something? every time I shut my laptop, or i bump into it, it goes dim.

I can still see it, but I need light to do so. the only way I can fix it is when I tap the back of the Display where the blacklight/inverter is.

Could anyone tell what's happening to my laptop, and how much it would be to fix it.
