The laptop has a faulty backlight. This could be either the backlight inverter board or the CCFL (cold cathode flourescent lamp). The inverter is more likely to be at fault than the CCFL. The fact that it sometimes works for a while suggests either a dry joint or bad capacitors. If you want to try to fix this yourself you will need atleast some soldering experience. The backlight inverter is usually mounted in the display. It may require significant disassembly of the laptop in order to access the backlight controller. Check the PCB for dry joints and replace any electrolytic capacitors on the PCB (a capacitance meter can be used to check the capacitors if you have one).

Inspiron turns on but not monitor


That is good, it proves the problem is in the laptop display, the most likely issue is the inverter board, "located just below the LCD screen" the other less likely is the backlight just behind the LCD display.

Dell Inspiron 2200 boots up but 1-2 min in the screen goes to a faint black. You can still see the desktop and everything just very faintly. Like a fain transparent black.


Check with your Power Plan or screen saver option, you might have it adjusted to super energy saving to make your battery last longer and have the screen dim, or backlight shut off since you mention it take 1-2 min to boot up ...see if that might help.... If that didn't do the job, I suspect your backlit lighting might be going bad. Let me know what Operating system you are using too. So like I said, check your screen save and if it is set to dim, or shurt off withing a minute or two... set it to something longer to see if that works.

I got a laptop Dell Inspiron 2200...I turn the power on and all the four (4) green lights goes on then flashes a bit a wont turn on... ANY CAN HELP ME.... Thanks


Hi,
If the the four lights on the computer come and then go off. Then these are the diagnostics lights telling that the motherboard has gone bad and needs a replacement

If they flash in some sequence . The the problem could be with one of the internal components.

The screen is blank but I can see a faint image.


Try reseating the cable that goes to the back of the lcd and also the other end of that cable that plugs into the motherboard. If that doesn't do it then either the lcd or the inverter is bad. Either way when you get a replacement screen for a dell laptop it normally comes with a new inverter as well. If your laptop is under warranty thru dell then you can get it replaced thru them. If you have your serial number then I can look it up and see if your system is still under warranty.

Dell inspiron 5150 dark screen, faint image in background


If it showed a pinkish tint on the screen before it went out it could be the backlite. If you can see a faint screen when you turn the room lights out it chuld be the inverter. Inverters are cheap ... a used one for around $8 on ebay. Try that first. Make sure that you buy the EXACT model that is presently in your laptop.
