You can measure them "in circuit". List all your measurements for all inverter transformers.

I've read some similar text here at the forum, but I wasn't sure whether this was applicable to my situation since I can't see any picture when I shine a light on the screen. Does this makes any difference?
Sometimes the flashlight trick doesn't work because of the screen, material, angle, etc. If you look in a dark room, you may have better luck?

It just takes one of the 20 inverter transformers to fail and the whole thing will shut down.
