Question about Computers & Internet
My LCD Screen a Dell Inspiron 9400 must be replaced, I was trying to use a Princeton Digital Monitor VL1715, but a Message on the Monitor says: "Out of Range". Need your help, what can I do? How much would it cost to repair or replace the Dell LCD Screen? Thanks, Wolf Point Pleasant,NJ
Try and determine what is wrong with your LCD screen first and you can then decide the best course of action. Follow these instructions to determine the fault and then check out LCD Parts WEB site for parts, replacement LCDs, service and DIY info..
You may have a faulty inverter or loose power inverter connection. OR
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Try booting in Safe mode, see if you get video
If you do, reboot in VGA mode, then adjust the refresh rate accordingly
A replacement LCD is about $200 on EBay
