Question about Dell UltraSharp 1905FP LCD Monitor
The colors look a bit dim as it warms up, then after warm, it shuts off. I power back up only to see the screen for 15-30sec and then it shuts off.
Is it worth fixing? How do I test or get parts? cost?
Glad for any suggestions to find specific issue.
The problem is your backlight lamp is bad. Your description is of very classic symptoms for the backlight. You can either replace the LCD assembly or monitor or try replacing the backlight bulb itself. You'd have to call around to some repair shops to see what they'd charge to see if it is worth it to you to fix it or replace it. Here is a link to a site online that shows the bulbs and how to replace them if you want.
