    I've just been told that LCD monitors have no Cold Cathode lights and that it's it's probably the backlight and if that's the case, that it's irreparable. What d'you think?

Cold cathode lights behind the LCD screen are dead or dying. If you like the screen go on ebay and look for the cathode light kit if available. You can search google for replacing the lights on a LCD screen and its pretty straight forward. If its not worth your time just buy a new screen, but replacing the long skinny bulbs will make it like new.

My dell inspiron 546's monitor has gone dark the screen is still visable but really dark how do i make it bright again i already tried the brightness and contrast on monitor


It might be that the CFL lighting tubes on your monitor have failed, in which case they need to be replaced. Borrow a screen to try on your computer to test if it is in actual fact the your screen that is faulty. This is normally fixed by a computer technician! If it is under warranty return it!

Used as second monitor suddenly stared to go dark


If the screen is lighting up for a fraction of a second when you turn on & then goes dark, this indicates a fault either with the backlights on the screen or the inverter part of the monitor. You can check the backlights if you have access to a backlight tester, you need to remove the rear cover & connect the backlight cables into the tester, if this checks ok then look for a problem on the inverter board, checking the capacitors for any signs of distress.

Monitor goes Black off and on .....


I had the same problem for about a week and solved it yesterday by downloading the latest driver by NVDIA who makes my video card (NVDIA GeForce 6200).
I had previously updated the latest Sony driver for the monitor. It did not solve the problem but could be part of the solution in conjunction with the new video card driver.

LCD Monitor Goes Black during Use


I had the problem sometimes, but then I connected a second computer to the analog input and found out, that the screen didnt turn black but switches between the inputs on an on.

I found out that the "input" button seems to be short or damaged, as the behaviour was invertable by pressing the button. I blew into the button some times (a very naive solution, yeah) but it worked, the switching stoppped.
