Answers :

You may have a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.
\015\012
\015\012A defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

I have a Samsung 19" model 923NW monitor. This is my 2nd of this model that has gone bad on me. I decided to pull the second one appart and noticed that the back light lamps are burned. One side is burned so bad that the ends of the lamps are completely burned off and cracked. The other side, both the lamps are intact, but shows blackened on the ends as well. I need to know what lamps I will need to replace these? Diameter and lenth. Thanks T

My monitor just flickers off, glitches on for a split second, then glitches off. I know its not the settings on the computer because I have another computer that works fine, but when I plug this monitor to it it continues its annoying flicker. I never had a power surge or anything. I dont understand what could have caused this. Is this screen salvageable or is it screwed?
