Bzinbby1, Hi, I think I know what's wrong. In fact I already know what's wrong! But I want you to do one test to let me know how bad it really is! Here is the test. I want you to reconnect your Proview to an already fully booted "KNOWN GOOD" pc with WIN DESKTOP showing. Then and only then power up the Proview and hold a good, bright flashlight 2 inches from the lcd screen after the screen goes to BLACK! Even though the screen appears BLACK, can you still see the WIN Desktop if you hold the flashlight at different angles???? Get back to me with results of test. I will then tell you what options are open to you as a consumer whose screen is now dark and lifeless. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com
If you can see the pixels like he says, the backlight's gone - which is pretty easy to fix. Look at the capacitors first, if any of them look oddly bulgy, chances are that's done it. You can also try finding fuses and testing them for resistance - if it stays at 1 then the fuse is bad. Check for dry joints (where the solder hasn't quite melted on to the components properly) and burnt marks in case something's overheated.
If you have any other monitors, it's worth piggy-backing them, so that the monitor you're fixing is powering the screen and a different monitor is powering the backlights. They will be connected to the board by pink cables, most likely, and there'll be two or four of them - there's two long fluorescent tubes going along the top and bottom of the monitor. If the tubes are ok, then the board they're connected to is bad, whether by capacitors, burnt bits, or a popped fuse.
