The most common cause of dim displays on this unit is a failure in the back light power supply. This problem can be fixed if you can do a little soldering. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to dis-assemble and repair the power supply board.

SOURCE: screen comes on but goes dim within seconds

The inverter in the monitor is probably going bad. It can be replaced, depending on the size/age of the monitor. Many times it is cheaper to buy a new one than to have it fixed.

If you are a little handy, and can get the monitor open, you can find the inverter and replace it. The monitors have a high voltage area you have to be very careful around.

New inverters range from $30-75. They are very specific to the model of monitor. The best way to find one is to get to the inverter and search for the numbers printed on it.

A repair might cost you $100+

More likely to have problem in the power supply, back light inverter circuits, or worst will be bad lamps.
