Broken Monitor, Bulbs or inverters or what?
 
I have a 19" Samsung but the backlight isn't working.

I think it has 4 bulbs as it has 2 inverters? so I'm thinking they cant all fail at the same time through old age or whatever,

What should I be looking at as a likely source of the problem? (assuming I can get into it to have a look see)

if just one was bad would the other still work though?

Generic CCFL inverters can be bought from ebay or found...elsewhere


The monitor has a built in PSU so could it be just a fuse in there somewhere?

Looks like I'll have to stick the panel in a cardboard box with a candle behind it instead.
