Question about Dell Inspiron 1200 14.1 XGA LCD Display-320-4222 (3204222) CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

Dark LCD I have a Dell Inspiron 1200 ( 3 years old), and the screen has gone dark, which seems like a simple contrast issue. However, it is not. The computer powers on as usual, but the picture is very dark. I have taken it to a repair shop, but after several tries, they concluded that I should have my mother board changed. Is that the only remedy for this problem? Or should I just invest in an entirely new computer?

My dell inspiron 546's monitor has gone dark the screen is still visable but really dark how do i make it bright again i already tried the brightness and contrast on monitor


It might be that the CFL lighting tubes on your monitor have failed, in which case they need to be replaced. Borrow a screen to try on your computer to test if it is in actual fact the your screen that is faulty. This is normally fixed by a computer technician! If it is under warranty return it!

Loss of light on screen Dell Inspiron E1705


Looks like the backlighting on the display has failed, sometimes it is just a lose cable, buy most often the LCD needs to be replaced.

to check the cable see the manual at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins9400/ for how to get to the LCD cables (usually just under the cover that the power button is on)

Monitor is very dark


I have to assume you have tried through existing means to change brightness and contrast.
These are generally provided for the user.

LCD screens are backlit via a fluorescent lamp. This is a high voltage device so the problem could come from either a failing lamp or the inverter circuit that drives it.

Access to the lamp varies greatly and to even check it may well be a job for a technician.
