The backlight is out on my A201P2 monitor.
\015 The backlight is out on my CHI MEI A201P2 monitor (Westinghouse). Can the backlight be replaced and how do I get to it.\015
Yes it can be, I suggest using that specific model number and brand name and type that in on a google product search, it surprisingly gives you more than you would think. http://www.froogle.com. After that I would call a technician who is experienced with those, since the cathode lights are way inside, the screen would have to be completely taken a part.
