Hi,

Initially, it could either be the CCF lamps (cold cathode florescent) or the inverter that powers the lamps. Both in tandem are responsible for providing the backlighting of the LCD screen. You can actually confirm this by shining a flashlight on the LCD display face when it grows dark. Semblance of your desktop would be slightly visible (but very dark). this could be heat related, cold or loose solder connection or a component nearing end of life such as a capacitor.

Should this be the case, then repairs has to be done internally. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
