The monitor is a Dell ST2410. I opened it up and it was made in 2009. I've had it since 2010.
So yesterday I was sitting here and it just "went black". Power was still on. So I turned off the power, turned it back on, and for 2 seconds thought it was a glitch or something. But it went black again. Tried this a couple of times before finally just accepting something was wrong with it. So jumped on the ole net and started looking around. Came across people who had, had this same problem and it turned out to be the invert-er board.
I've changed the power cord. Changed the HDMI cable, not sure why but did it anyways. Still does the same thing. Took it out to Best Buy opened it up for them and the " GEEK " squad couldn't even tell me which was the invert-er board. Which I thought was kinda of funny. You'd think those guys wouldn't know that. Anyways, I can't find a picture online of my particular monitor to show me which one is the invert-er board.
I took some pictures. Maybe someone here can tell me which one of these is the board (invert-er) so I might hopefully find a replacement. If that is, what you think it wrong with it. And if it is, where would you suggest I can find one at? Because another shop I took it to before Best Buy told me they wouldn't even know where to find an invert-er board at for this monitor.
Also the guy at Best Buy said it might be where you plug into the monitor at? So I provided a picture of that too. lol.
Thanks for any help.
Oh, maybe I've not provided enough pictures. I've obviously not opened it up completely. I cant see the need to yet. But if I need to, I can.
