It may be back light but unstable power supply due to bad DC filter caps, that will be the first palce to check, repalcing lamps is not a simple job. See my failed SAMSUNG monitors due to bad caps pictures albums.
Lamps: www.lcdparts.net
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Upper sise of screen flickering problem


Technology b> A laptop's display assembly consists of an LCD panel, an inverter board and a backlight lamp. The inverter board supplies power to the lamp which lights up the LCD screen as it generates images. Light from the lamp is then uniformly distributed over the panel to create images. b> Cause b> Flickering is commonly caused by a damaged or malfunctioning inverter. Because a faulty inverter is not able to supply adequate power to the backlight lamp, the screen goes dim each time the backlight loses power. In some cases, flickering may also be caused by a faulty connection between the inverter and backlight lamp. Diagnosis b> Resolving a laptop screen's flickering problem entails correctly diagnosing the problem and replacing the faulty component. You may diagnose the problem by hooking up the laptop to an external display unit, such as a projector. If the external display has the same display problem as the laptop's LCD screen, it is indicative of a motherboard or video card problem. If the external unit displays bright, crisp images, the problem is probably caused by the backlight or inverter. b> Solution b> You may repair a laptop screen's flickering problem by replacing the inverter board or backlight. Order parts from a trusted supplier and replace the component by referring to your product documentation.

The black screen problem of your TV can be attributed to a backlight driver failure, busted backlight, or LCD driver failure.

The flickering indicates a failing backlight driver or a failing backlight. The screen should be totally black, without any glow, when either of them is not working. To verify, grab a torch and shine it on the screen. You will be able to see a faint display telling you that the backlight is busted or the backlight driver is faulty. If not, the LCD driver or the LCD panel itself is faulty, although it has a low probability due to the symptoms of the problem. The only way to fix the problem is replacement of the faulty part. You may need the service of a qualified technician to determine exactly which one is the root of the problem that needs replacement.

Flickering screen


You may have a faulty inverter or defective CCFL lamp. A faulty CCFL lamp may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering and/or with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight or a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. Usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Flickers and goes black


No it is not a backlight it is the inverter board which sends power to the backlight most likely cause is bad capacitors on the inverter board. this wil require soldering to repair backlight is even worse it requires you to disassemble the lcd unit. if you are gong to ope up the lcd monitor look on all pcb boards for deformed (blown) capacitors replace those with identical ones from yur electronics shop9they must be exactly the same mfd (Microfaradays) and Voltages
