Hi.....It would appear your backlight has "blown" (it is just a thin,long bulb in the bottom of your screen)....It will need replacing ....Although you could purchase one yourself to fit it would be best to leave this job to a service engineer

Hope this helps

I was watching a movie and the sceen went black i had audio though.i restarted the computer and now no video black screen. did the video card **** out? video card is a nivia 8600 gt


If you are using a lcd monitor, it is very possible that your monitor backlight failed, have you tried connecting a different monitor to check your video adapter?

If the backlight failed, the image is on the screen, but is not visible unless you shine a light on to the screen

Dell E173FP 17 monitor went dark and not working. I restart the pc it shows for only few second and went out again. I plug in one other monitor in my pc and it work fairly well. So something not right with...


Hi!

There are three possible cause why your monitor went black and start working..

1. If your monitor is dead set.. no reaction or lights turn on after power on.. then it needs to check if there is blown capacitor in its power supply section..

2. The high voltage ballast transformer of the backlight inverter is burned - it needs to be replaced so that it will not have a direct effect on the power supply section of the monitor.

3. The backlight inverters are all busted - the backlight was located at the upper and lower back edge of the monitor.. If these lights are busted then all that will be seen in your monitor is black screen.. It will need to be replaced so that image display will come out from your screen..

These 3 reason and its solutions can only be done by yourself if you have the knowledge, proper skills and the right tools to open the back cover of the monitor and replace the problem parts....

Otherwise, bring your monitor to a credible technician and if there is warranty,, avail of this...

Hope that answer your question..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

Screen went black


For laptops, there is a lighting source behind, called the backlight.

It may happen that only the backlight needs to be replaced.

You can figure this out by looking thoroughly via the LCD screen. As if only the backlight needs replacement, you will still be having display behind.

Otherwise you will need to replace the unit.

The only way to fix it is to replace the screen. It is fairly easy to do and new ones run about 65 dollars on ebay.

Help needed!


it's probably a problem with the backlight or the backlight inverter... i had the same problem just a little while ago. If your electrical components savvy, you might be able to find the problem on the inverter (which is on the side of the monitor once you get inside). Otherwise look into replacing the bulbs (which are on the top and bottom)

You my friend have a bad backlight. Inside thes LCD monitors there a little tiny flourecnet lights that help the LCD project the images so that you can see what is being displayed. Sounds like your backlight has gone bad. These can be repaired, but can be costly! These things happen often times, 90% of the time I am replacing the backlights to various monitors. Sorry, but I am certain it is your backlight!

Backlight is torched, it happens without warning. These can be repaired, but finding the appropriate backlights, and trying to get this thing apart is a royal pain in the you know what! But your backlight has burned out! Sorry!
