Dell Monitor issue

I have the ultrasharp SP2208WFP  22". the problem i'm having i believe might be related to backlight issue.  When i first turn monitor on, it works fine, then a few seconds later goes dar,, but i can still see the image on the screen with flashlight and kinda without it.  if i turn off and back on..same thing..any idea how i can fix this myself?

Probably the inverter-- I recommend while you're there- just replace the backlight and the inverter.

i was  told the inverter was probably ok because i can see the image...but something about the lamp and caps..but i'll probably take your advice just to be safe.  question is...where can i find those parts?

typically the problem is electrolyte caps going bad...

If your good with a soldering iron, you can occasional avoid buying a new inverter, pending the price vs what equipment you have...  

As you can see form link, sometimes the p/s and inverter are on the same board...
