Blank sceen My AL1916 was fine when I swiched off the computer at night. When I switched on the next morning - nothing.I tried powering the system down and theb up many times but no luck. I finally switced monitors to see if it was the computer - the second, old, CRT monitor worked fine.Any suggestions? Will it be any good taking it back to Circuit City for them to look at it - its about 2 years old?

Hi, is the power light coming On, on the monitor?? let me know if it's yellow or green . The first thing to go bad is the Inverter not the lamp,or the power-supply. I fixed a lot of monitor only 2% had bad lamp.Give me some more info about it.

No, because it sounds like the backlight has blown. These LCD monitors utilize a backlight, just like the florecent bulbs we see in office buildings. Alot smaller! These things can be repaired, but by the time you figure out how and when you track down the bulbs you would have purchased a new for all of that time. But they can be repaired!

Your coin battery that powers the memory system of your camera may be failing. This battery keeps your settings and powers your on board computer.
