The screen fades to black?

Can you still see the image on the screen as if it was not back lit?
(If you shine a flashlight at it can you see the windows desktop?)
If so then the problem is the inverter (or possibly the backlight)
but most likely the inverter. Buy one off ebay and search the internet for a DIY (do it yourself) guide for installation.

If the screen does display for a moment then goes only black is probly still the inverter

    My Inspiron 1200 turns on but I have a black screen - no video. It began fading - now nothing. Is there anything I can replace?

    One thing to try is to connect your Inspiron up to an external monitor. You can plug in any kind of monitor, but you might have to toggle to the external mode:
    Hold down your function key, then hit the LCD/CRT key. If you have a good display on an external monitor, then you are going to need either a LCD inverter or new LCD. They are not too hard to swap out, the inverter costs about $15,it is mounted in the lid, below the LCD, and the replacement LCD about $80.

    Replace broken LCD of dell inspiron 1525 with new LCD

    Why do you need to replace the whole screen?
    Have you worked out exactly what is wrong?
    The screen may have a faulty CCFL lamp or a faulty inverter, replacing these is cheaper than replacing the whole screen.
    For parts, service and DIY info have a look at LCD Parts WEB site.

    Inspiron 1200 Dead Screen

    At first glance, I'd say "bad video/motherboard" ...however, when you hook up an external monitor, you also need to first switch into "external LCD" mode. On the Dell laptop, hit FN and F8 I believe to switch between LCD and external. It will go through several modes...LCD only, external only, neither, and both. Keep switching until you see something on the external.

    If you never see output on the external, you've got a video/motherboard problem. If under warranty, contact Dell and place a support call.

    If not under warranty, you're looking at anywhere from $200-$400 for a new motherboard, plus labor for someone to install it.

    Hope this helps - remember to rate :)
