My Inspiron 1200 turns on but I have a black screen - no video. It began fading - now nothing. Is there anything I can replace?

For Ichand- \015\012
\015\012> then you are going to need either a LCD inverter or new LCD. They are not too hard to swap out, the inverter costs about $15,it is mounted in the lid, below the LCD, and the replacement LCD about $80.\015\012
\015\012Didn't you mean backlight rather than LCD?\015\012
\015\012Take an angled look at the screen with the unit turned on; if you see a 'ghost' image, the LCD itself is functioning, only the fluorescent backlight or its inverter is toast.

\015\012Hold down your function key, then hit the LCD/CRT key. If you have a good display on an external monitor, then you are going to need either a LCD inverter or new LCD. They are not too hard to swap out, the inverter costs about $15,it is mounted in the lid, below the LCD, and the replacement LCD about $80.
