Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
I have a Dell Latitude D505 that suddenly developed a problem with the LCD screen. I turn it on and can very faintly see that it is booting up, but it is so faint that I can't use the mouse or keys to login or use it. I have plugged a monitor into it and can use it just fine this way, so there is nothing wrong with the computer itself. Since I can see the screen very faintly I'm thinking tht the backlight must be working in some capacity, but is there a way to adjust the light? What could be wrong? Can anyone help?
It sounds like the backlight has burned out. The faint light you are seeing is ambient light in your room being reflected through the LCD. Try it in a perfectly dark room and see if you can see anything on the screen. The following page should give you a sense of what is involved in replacing a backlight: http://home.comcast.net/~stonent/screenfix.htm If you aren't comfortable taking things like this apart, I would recommend finding a local repair shop to replace the backlight.
