My Dell flat screen monitor has gone dark. I have power, in fact you see a display in the background and enter in information, but it is very, very dark. How can I repair??

monitor failure

by shiny_topadm In reply to Dell flat screen monitor

This indicates that the "backlight" has failed, which could be the backlight itself or some power supply component that has died. It can be fixed, but the question is at what cost. If you have to pay someone for their time (in addition to parts) it is not likely to be worth it, of course this depends on how much a replacement would cost.
It is NOT in the category of a consumer do-it-yourself task.
