I can't comment on the input values because I've never measured them,
but I can comment on the output values. They are NOT 34V peak to peak.
Maybe you measured this with a voltmeter?

The backlight runs at approximately 40 Volt peak to peak at 607Hz, at
least this is what Andrei Chichak once measured and sent me the
of. Check his post dated August 14, 2006.
