Your display has a flourescent backlight. If the brightness control does nothing, then the display needs to be repaired.
It is possible to repair it yourself (much less expensive that buying a new one) but you may also try e-Bay to see if you can get a replacement.

When this happens it means the back light needs to be replaced. The back light is a light bulb that lights up the screen from behind the LCD display.

victorash02, Is screen black n blank, or just black? Do flashlight test! Yes it could be both! Most likely problem with unit's internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter supply". You or technician will need to investigate for probable cause of black screen of death. Need a little history of unit! Did it work just fine 2 weeks ago? How many "ON" hours of use on the unit? When was it made? Did you PROVE that PC not cause and works ok? Get back here with more info so we can help.

The l226wtq goes black


Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.

Monitor comes on, I can see everything perfect then goes black


"Most" newer monitors will let you know if the are no longer receiving a signal. Sounds like the backlight is burnt out. Try getting a bright (LED works best) flashlight and shining it at the screen at all angles to see if you can see any of what you were doing. If the backlight is on the fritz, either return it on warranty or buy a new one.

The screen goes blank at start up


If you can not see anything, then it may be your inverter (Replacement part cost is around $50.00), if you can see a dark image then your CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) is out. (Replacement part cost is around $15.00)

When it turns black take a flashlight and shine it on the bottom of the screen where the start button would be. Look closely and see if you can seen any faint images there. If you do then your backlight is malfunction. That typically is not a self-fix for the typical user. If you don't see anything can you give us some more information. - Are any lights flashing just before or after the screen turn black? - If you restart the computer will it work again? - Will the screen go black even if you are actively working on the computer? If its not the backlight let us know the answer to these questions and we'll continue. As always please don't forget to rate this posting.
