OK.. So I get up today and no picture on the screen connected to my MP . I see 1 short,1long and 1 short.

I brought it to work and plugged it into a different power adapter on my MBP and it does the same thing.
Model A1081

Inverter board?

This is a 20" matte screen that I really want to save. You can't buy these anymore....
