Re: dell 20 inch monitor

You have a bad video board; It's nothing to do with the inverter. I'm sorry I cant help more, exept to say to crack it open and see if anything looks burnt or discolored in any way. If so, you may be able to fix it by replacing the toasted parts.

Re: dell 20 inch monitor

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Black colour displaying become greenish and narrow vertical lines

Most LCD monitors have a default refresh rate of 60 Hz. Older monitors also have limited resolution. Please check your display settings and ensure you're not using a refresh rate higher than 60, or a resolution higher than what it supports. If either one is the case, you're lucky the LCD still works.

Two vertical lines across screen

This is a common problem when LCDs are subjected to strong shock. Your internal circuits are damaged The panel itself may not be cracked but there is internal damage. I know of no cure or repair possible other than to replace the panel assembly.
