Having problems with your Acer AL2032WD 20" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

What is the LCD Blue Backlight, and its function on LCD monitors?


Answers :

Johnsona881, Backlights for LCD monitors are called CCFL's, and are not blue!! They light-up the reverse side of the lcd panel with WHITE light. Cold cathode fluorescent lamps are what allow you to see what is on the screen. They are straight tubes (2) hung horizontally left to right and if the inverter circuit can't produce 600- 100volts ac you will have a black screen to look at!!! 12fixlouie
