Soccerstu546, The video information is being displayed.... but you just don't have any cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes" emitting enough WHITE-LIGHT to brighten up the image and or text. If you have never used a soldering iron and solder and don't know an electrolytic cap from a mylar cap then you should look into swapping out your monitor if DELL has a cash+monitor swapout program going. They will return to you a refurbished unit that should last at least 1-2years. You should read up on the top 2 reasons LCD monitor screens GO BLACK!!! I almost guarantee you will be in the one for FAILED SMPS/INVERTER SUPPLY. You may also need to search or visit www.badcaps.net and other sites that deal with failed lcd displays. you could even try right here on fixya to get it REFURBISHED! Wow, If you saw some 8-12min vid clips on youtube you might even want to do your own disassembly of your LCD Monitior just so you can use you digital still camera to document any SWOLLEN ELECTROLYTIC FILTER CAPACITORS that are inside the monitor. Also try moving and connecting your monitor to a different PC. If same result---Then monitor is BAD. Well--anyhow bye for now. louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol.com

Very dim display..so dark that all I see is a faint picture. Are bad capacitors to blame?


I would say either the video cable has disconneted, causeing the led that lights the screen up to not function,, simpley take the bezel around the screen, take the small screws aroud the screen to slightley pull the screen away from the back top to see if the cable is, or has pulled loose...If now the screen is bad..

A125 monitor is dark


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Screen comes on then goes out in 5 seconds. The backlight goes dark but the seen is working, just can't see it. The backlight is out...


mark587, Did you shine a very bright flashlight 1" from the screen to try and see the WIN-desktop ?? Even though the screen appears BLACK. Your words above said: JUST CAN'T SEE IT Did you really NOT see anything? Have you seen any of the longer video clips of "LCD Monitor Disassembly" on YOUTUBE? Some BLACK screen "symptom" lcd displays can be repaired for less than $10 in parts. Capacitors! Also check videos on lcd repair. Then get back here to fixya and I or any of the guys can help you decide what to do with your display whoose screen is now dark and lifeless. After doing the YOUTUBE thing you may even tell us what you will do!!! Hope this was helpful. Yes we do want to hear back from you. please rate this response on fixya. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com. Bye for now.

Sceptre X-24-wg LCD not bright dark


if you can see the image in the monitor the light tubes are not firing and this is commonly caused by blown capacitors on the power board, the capacitors need to be replaced and the monitor should work fine.
Let me know what you want to do .

Dell inspiron 5150 dark screen, faint image in background


If it showed a pinkish tint on the screen before it went out it could be the backlite. If you can see a faint screen when you turn the room lights out it chuld be the inverter. Inverters are cheap ... a used one for around $8 on ebay. Try that first. Make sure that you buy the EXACT model that is presently in your laptop.
