The backlight tube at the bottom of your monitor is not lighting. I could be that it's burned out. There are various tutorials on the internet (try http://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/shorts/lcdfix.aspx) to guide through replacement. It could also be the transformer board that powers it, but I've never seen just one light go out.

What's your problem?the screen turns very dim to where you can barely see the picture


Your monitor is going bad or your video card is going bad. Try using another monitor on the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and see if you can barely see the icons and desktop on it. If the borrowed monitor is bright and clear and you can see things ok, then your original monitor is going bad. If the borrowed monitor shows the same problem of barely being able to see things, then your video card in the computer is bad.

My dell inspiron 1521 screen goes black!


Yes, most likely the inverter has failed if you can still make out the desktop but the screen is very dim. Below is the link to the service and repair manual for that model.

Dell Inspiron laptop monitor is gone very faint


Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

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.

Dell E152 Flat Panel screen is REALLY dim.


I haven't seen this particular monitor. It may have deeply recessed black screws, or possibly even Torx screws. Try a #2 Phillips and see if it engages firmly. If not, try a T-10. Once you get inside, you will need to remove the power supply and main board to get at the LCD panel. Locate the inverter circuit - it will have two Teflon insulated wires going to (usually) the bottom corners of the panel. It may be part of the power supply board. Every LCD display I've seen so far uses pink colored insulation on those wires. It is possible that the inverter has failed, but most of the time, it's the fluorescent tubes inside the back of the panel.

Getting at the tubes without breaking something is not a trivial task. You will most likely need a #00 Phillips screw to remove the shield metal. Observe anti-static precautions from the moment you open the monitor. Be patient, and keep track of every part or connection you remove. Do not remove the LCD driver circuitry (generally at the top) from the panel. The tube(s) are usually at bottom, enclosed in a sheet metal reflector held in place by the bottom section of the thin metal frame around the panel, just inside a flexible white plastic sheet that covers most of the back of the panel.

You can get new backlight fluorescent tubes from www.lcdparts.com. This website has links to some very helpful pages on repairing LCDs. Note: replacing the tubes involves some rather delicate work. If you are nervous, twitchy or clumsy with fine work, you'd be better off to hire out the job. Be very careful not to rip the rubber insulators on the ends of the tubes when you slide them down the insulated wires to expose the connections to the tubes. You have to attach the wires at just the right spot or you won't be able to fit the insulators back on and get the new tubes to go into the LCD frame - and you can't apply heat to the wires for more than 4 seconds at a time. I've done a number of them successfully, but have occasionally had to try several times to make the connection sufficiently small and short.

Dell inspiron 4150 video dim


The empty slot is for a mini-PC card, usually a wireless network card. The 2 wires are actually the antenna wires that connect to the wireless card. The dim LCD may be a problem with the LCD panel display, video controller or motherboard. Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor by connecting to the Video Connector located on the back of the laptop. If the display on the external monitor appears to be normal, then your LCD display panel on the laptop has a problem. If the display on the external monitor is dim then you probably have a bad video controller card or motherboard.
