    Right on,

    Thanks Again for the speedy reply, the tele is about 2 years old... so it looks like a lil bit green(back) for the light.

Yes, just take your monitor to the repair shop & tell them what is the problem.

    If it's brand new & the Warrenty is still good it will cost you nothing

    but if not then your talking about $ 50.00 - $100

It will be the inverter module or the the back light that is the problem, but until you take it apart and examine the parts and do some testing that will be the key in finding the culprit.

It started flickering then went black. When powered off and then back on, it will work for a couple of seconds then go black.


I think what your monitor is experiencing right now is because of the backlight inverter in your lcd monitor is about to give up...The backlight inverter is a cold cathode light thats responsible for the image in your screen.. if the lights located on the upper and lower edge of the monitor will be busted then what you will see is black screen.. You will need to replace that in your monitor.

However, without the proper skills to do that and proper tools to open the monitor.. it will be risky for the safety of your monitor..

I suggest that you bring your monitor to a credible technician to replace busted backlight or (burned high voltage ballast transformer - supplying current to backlight)

I hope this help..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

I have dell 1907fpt, the lcd screen powers up for just 2 or 3 seconds.

The backlight might be bad. As far as I know, there isn't a way to replace that, so you'll have to get a new monitor.

I have a dell latitude c400 my screen is dim. However I am able to use an external monitor.

If the screen is dim and and external monitor works, then the LCD backlight has failed. Replacement LCDs for that model are around $100 on Ebay and take 30 minutes to an hour to install depending on your skill level

Dell 24'' Ultrasharp went blank

I suspect the invertor supplying power to the Xenon backlight tubes has failed.
This can be reapired but may not be cost effective.
Ask for a quote from your local computer specialist but keep in mind the cost of a new monitor.

My Gateway laptop screen is dark and I believe I have to replace the bulb but how do I know which one to order? I have pulled apart the monitor but where to go from here? Thanks Dee

Just Search up the Make & Model Backlight Bulb of the LCD Screen. Example: (LiteOn LTR6543 Backlight Bulb). Don't forget about the Inverter, Most of the time it's Mounted below the LCD Display. That's what Powers the Backlight. Hope This Helps!...

My 3 year old Dell Inspiron 710m screen won't light up

to see if its your backlight, shine a torch onto the screen and if all is visible then, your backlight is out.
they are not expensive but getting someone to replace it may be.
