I replaced the LCD, but the backlight turns off after 2 seconds?


Did I mess up the connection to the inverter?  The screen looks great for about 2 seconds at start up, after waking from sleep (also for 2 seconds), and when I take the brightness from all the way down to anything up.  But it never stays on for more than a couple seconds. I can still see images on the screen it's just not illuminated.

A magnet did drop out while I was re-installing the LCD and I can't tell where it is supposed to go.  Does it trigger a control to keep the backlight on?  It is not one of the 4 magnets in the top corners of the LCD case.  Thanks for any help you can give!
