17 inch dell flatscreen monitor stops in its tracks
\015 For some reason the monitor no longer works - it has a power light, but my desktop does not come up on my screen - it is just black! \015\012\015\012I recently added skype to my computer, but made no other changes. All cords are in place as are power cords. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.\015\012\015\012Dark Monitor Girl\015
Sounds like most of the monitor's circuitry is working except for the backlight. If you place a flashlight on the screen you may be able to see your desktop items in the light ring around it. This doesn't fix the problem but it will tell what is wrong. The price of some monitors is low enough now to make this one not worth spending on for repairs. You could sell it as broken on ebay and use the proceeds towards one of the new ones.
Usually the problem is in the MAIN POWER BOARD , BEFORE taking it to a repair shop , open the monitor and check for cold solder or burnt solder around where is a transformer , most of the problem is this , hope it helps , AJ
