More likely to be the fuse for the backlight inverter circuits rated at 3.5 or 4Amps. It is PICO fuse.
The transistors that drive the inverter transformers may have been damaged, should check them out before installin a new fuse. In the mean time you can use 1 to 2 Ohms 1/2 Metal Oxide (MOX) resistor in place of the fuse, if the resistor overheatand open up then you have shorts circuits.
Basic LCD monitor and LCD TV troubleshooting guide:
heck342, Your monitor may have the common "black screen of death" that will occur to ANY AND ALL cold cathode-fluorescent-lamp, back-lit, lcd monitors sometime during their lifetime. You will need to do a lot of reading in my fixya profile and those of "buddymc" , "budmrtn" and then you will understand what you will or will not do with your unit. I'll even bet you haven't been to YOUTUBE to view any DIY repair videos yet! Come back here for more info after you do a little research on the WEB, and can tell us tech's that you know the difference between a "black screen" and a "blank n black screen" monitor. Remember this, your CCFL back-lit lcd unit" design and principle of operation isn't any different than any other brand. Have you done the "flashlight test" that every CCFL back-lit lcd monitor owner should know how to perform and interpret the resulting info when black screen of death occurs? Bye for now. 12fixlouie
It sounds like the PC video color setting is at 16 instead of 24 or 32 bit color setup. You need to check the display properties setting on the PC (Right click on the desk top). Also try it on other PC and also check the VGA cable.
Had the same problem with mine. First you need a volt meter (radio shack about $15). check the push in connector and make sure it has coming from it.
Place you meter on DCV for DC voltage, Then place one lead in the end of the plug in the hole. (will not fit all the way so will need to hold it there, Put the other lead on the shiny part of the plug. If you get a reading of 12 volts +/- 1 volt your good. Depending on which lead is were you may get a minus reading this is fine as if you switch your leads around it will go positive. you must have the cord plugged into the wall to do this test. You will not get shocked or anything as 12v is not enough to hurt you.
If you have the 12 volts the problem is in the monitor on the male plug or on the board. this takes more to fix and must take the back off the monitor and fix the connection or replace. I did this to mine and it is working right now.
