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..........

Cause of no backlight on led td

Hi Jason,
Generally there are two reasons for no backlight in LED TVs. Either it is the inverter which produces necessary power to drive the backlight stops working or some of the LEDs in the backlight array fail. In some TVs even one failed LED will cause no backlight.

Dell Sceen I have a Dell 1525 Laptop the screen got cracked to day. Looked up screen, 1280 x 800 resolution, do not know which vga/wxvga etc I need to buy to replace. Dell show it as being a Y599 screen....

justinbur167 it's a WXGA screen. I don't know if yours is Glossy, or a Matte finish.

This is one example,

Here is another example,

You'll note that offerings list With Inverter, and Without, also Glossy, or Matte finish.

[An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. A Backlight is used to provide the additional needed light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a Much smaller scale.

An Inverter is used to invert power from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and the Backlight ]

This is the Service Manual for the Inspiron 1525 Notebook PC, (Free),

Clicking on Display at the bottom of the first column, will provide information in replacing the LCD screen.
For any additional questions please post in a Comment.

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.
