I have a Dell E193FP monitor. My son was goofing around and hit the screen with a penny (Don't Ask). It worked for about 5days with some lines through it, then went black. Can it be fixed and about how much? Thomas

Re: LCD Monitor went black
Yes this can be fixed there are a ton of sites out there that have replacement inverters or backlights. A site I found called digitaltechinc.com has parts that can be helpful for this problem. Only if you are willing to patiently do it yourself! It really is not that hard! Hope this helps!

Seems to be a very common problem with this screen. Im taking one apart as we speak to try to discover the problem. In the mean time - check that the Power Input isnt loose, and you can wiggle it around. Usually means the power is arcing onto the board
The backlight or inverter may be bad. With the monitor on and the room dark, hold a flashlight very close and shine it on the screen . If you can see the normal display the monitor is OK but the backlight or the inverter which provides proper voltage to the backlight has gone bad.
Have you made sure the laptop is outputting the the monitor? Does the monitor have dual inputs? if so check it is switched to the correct one. With the laptop turned on and connected, switch the monitor on and off.
Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card.
If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.
