My monitor is a dell 2000 flat screen 20.1" turns


This is a backlight problem. The picture is there but there is no light from behind the LCD screen. It could be due to faulty capacitors, which are easy to replace. It could be a faulty Inverter transformer, which is harder to fix but he backlight controller board can usually be replaced at a reasonable price. If you have soldering experience you may be able to replace the faulty capacitors - look for capacitors with bulging tops.
Repalcing the inverter board in a job for someone with electronics experience. You can buy a universal inverter board for about £15 to £20 from e-bay.
20 inch monitors can be bought for about £100 to £150 so you need to decide whether it is economical to repair.

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


Hi!

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..

Monitor shows picture then goes black, if you hold light to screen you can see picture


Sounds like your backlight has gone faulty, this is a pretty easy repair, however it can be either the inverter, the power supply, or the lamp itself. You really need a service manual, to see how to do it and troubleshoot, exactly locate your fault. Otherwise,all one can do, is swap out, know good for bad, starting with the Power Supply, and working back, as if PSU isn't working 100% nothing else can do.

No back lighting


There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

It turns off after 10 minutes working


When you say it turns off, is the power light going out too?

If the power light is still lit when the screen blanks, it may be a faulty backlight inverter.

After 10 minutes elapse and the screen goes out, if you power it back on, do you get another 10 min, or does it last a much shorter time period, or not at all?

Your best bet is probably simply to buy a new monitor, and sell yours as "broken" on eBay, I'm sure someone out there capable of fixing it would be willing to pay pennies on the dollar to subsidize your replacement screen.

My screen is faded kind of like the backlight is out


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.

Flat screen monitor


Possibly a bad inverter that turns on the fluorescent backlight or a bad bulb.

Dark screen of Gateway FPD 1520


If you can see the screen display an image upon close scrutiny, it could be that the florescent back light is burned out.

No display


With the monitor hooked up and the computer on, you can take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen and see if it is displaying a picture. If you can see a picture then you can go the route of fixing your back light. I have a spot light that I use and it works really well. If you can't see anything then you are probably SOL and have to replace the monitor.
