That's because if I recall right, Dell just rebrands another company's monitors. It's an easy job to replace the backlight tube but it's also an easy job to accidentally crack the whole screen when you get in there. But if you open it up, you might be able to find the part number of who ever makes that screen. Any similar size backlight will work. Check in such places as and with the real maker of the LCD.
Not a whole lot of help, but hopefully better then nothing..........

Will a dell tft turn on with no source

Your monitor should turn on without a source and display the floating 'Dell - self-test Feature Check' message. If it does not, verify the power LED is on "GREEN" and indicating either power on / diagnostics mode or "Amber" power saving mode. If neither indication you have power problems. If these symptoms do not apply, shine a light on the sceen and see if there is a faint image. If this is true, you have backlight problems.

I have a Dell e173pfb monitor. i push the power button and green light comes on screen comes on for a second with no problem then the backlight goes off. I can still see an image with a flashlight though....

You need a new backlight inverter board. If you dissasemble the monitor you will see a circuit board with 4 2-wire connectors connected to it. This is the board you need to replace. Typically they run from $15 to $40. Usually just easier to replace the monitor. Another idea is to reduce brightness levels on the monitor in the menu while looking at it with your flashlight. Then power off then power on the monitor and it might stay on longer.

I'm using a Samsung T240HDTV. The screen goes to very dark frequently so that I can hardly see the image, after I turn it on. I guess may be something wrong with the backlight. Can somebody help me out...

The problem is probably not with the backlight, rather the inverter that powers the backlight. If you open the back of the lcd so that you can see the circuit board you might see several bulging, or blown capacitors. This is a common problem with lcds. If you replace the capacitors the problem should go away.

I have a monitor that comes on for about 3 seconds then the screen turns black and the light turns orange

Hi cw12345,

I'd would say that the backlights on the screen are broken. One difference though is that the foreground goes pink.

Kind regards,
