With motherboard removed, the plastic cover was slowly removed and noticed a coil with pads damaged so there was no electrical path completed. Removing the damaged coil and cleaning the area, required me to also remove a few mm of laquer from the mobo. This exposes copper which will become the 'new' pad completing the circuit.
Test and backlight and video appears on LCD. So the problem was an open path by blown coil.
