Yes I can. Sounds like a laptop or flat panel display. Both have a small florescent bulb in them that backlights the screen.

If you can order the bulb the bulb is easy to replace.

Laptop/Monitor: Split the plastic case around the lid/monitor (if there are screws you will need to remove them - check under the rubber pads on the inside of the lid as they often hide screws underneath.)
Run a small knife or flat screw driver around the seam and the two halves will split apart. Once you have done so you can easily access the bulb - replace it - reassembly is reverse of dis assembly.

Monitor on a emachine 250 computer comes on picture is very light faded in the background but no light


This is a typical symptom of a failing LCD screen inverter board or LCD screen backlight lamp. The backlight lamp failure symptoms are very similar to the inverter board failure symptoms. If you have to guess which one is causing the problem, try replacing the inverter board first. LCD screen inverter boards fail more often than the LCD screen backlight lamps.

VA1930WM monitor turns on, displays normal for one second then goes black. Then it turns on again after a minute or so for one second and goes black. This keeps repeating over and over. Is there a known...


If it was the power supply, the light would change to amber (orange) and then turn green again when it comes back on. Look closely at the screen when the it looks to turn off. See if you can still see an image. It may be hard to see, but when the backlights go bad or fail, the actual lcd screen itself still functions and you can see a very faint image. Maybe moving the mouse in circles might help you to be ablt to see. If you cant see anything at all, then it may be a bad board inside the unit.
Just a thought....

Laptop LCD goes black after a few seconds


Hello,

Yes, The pink tint is an indication that the backlight is failing. Now the backlight is basically dead, the best way to get back going is to do an Ebay search for your model laptop and get a new screen. Most screens can be purchased for around $50.00 - $70.00 and they are very easy to swap. Email me if you need more info.

Start the computer in "safe mode" (press F8 when it's booting). Then remove the driver and reboot. Re-install the driver and then be careful about the resolution you pick.

Screen goes white after 12 seconds


Per the first hit on Google for 'viewsonic fades white', http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html;jsessionid=A68BB7FE4AF6EC93EB730E8588C865A2?topicId=4064461903&sid=1
(which you should go on and read in another tab,) you need to contact Viewsonic about an inverter board (for the CCFL backlight) or switching your backlight to LED while spoofing the INVERTER_OK signal to keep the display from giving up as it does.

So...this should be a hint that you should respect others' time (or be moved to increase usability) better by searching for cures in similar Viewsonic monitors, and of course checking the obvious search terms.  Viewsonic evidently has a nifty knowledge base available for all on the web, so that one would be a nifty surprise.

Looks like your backlights are wearing out. Replace the bulbs and you should be fine.

Your CCFLs might be going bad. CCFL stands for Cold cathode fluorescent lamps. These are the lamps that provide backlight for the LCD Monitor. These lamps do not last forever, and are a very common part to go bad. The circuit that provides the power for the CCFL is called the inverter, it might be going bad, but I still think it is the CCFL. Only trained techs should try and replace a CCFL or fix an Inverter. CCFLs do contain mercury, but only small amounts.

You have a backlight issue. The backlight system is comprised of CCFL lamps and an inverter circuit board.

My advise, open up the back of the LCD and see if anything is not plugged in correctly. Maybe something got knocked loose.
Try and find the inverter board, does anything look bad on it.

If you are confused by now, don't panic, just get a new LCD, and sell the bad one on ebay. There are people who like to fix them. I have repaired a few backlight issues on LCD monitors and I do work on them professionally.
