Systems852, the answer to the question is NO!!! , Unless you own DMM, or DVM, and maybe a 50mhz Oscilloscope and an isolation transformer, soldering iron, solder, and the capability of disassembling the unit without causing any damage to the monitor. Your options as a consumer/user are as follows: 1. DELL warranty? 2. Check with DELL to see if they are doing any kind of SWAPOUT program. You send them your's+$40 to $90 and they return to you a same model REFURBISHED unit with new cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes/inverter/switchmode-powersupply and fully functional DSP board. 3. Locate local TV/Monitor/Computer Repair guy who knows all there is to know about LCD/FPD repair. 4. You can always try the do it yourself thing. But then you would need to research a whole lot of stuff about why LCD monitors fail after 3-5yrs. This sounds to me as though it might be a thermal problem. Have you tried a simple test of having a fan blowing cooler air into the vents at the backside of unit, just to see if lowering the ambient temp will defer the forming of your color stripe symptom. Will a hair dryer enhance the problem? Let me know how you make out getting it fixed. By the way, how old is the LCD? I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aim.com Bye for now.
