as i understand it... TFT`s have a limited life time due to the bulb inside them, once this pops can it be replaced ? if so, do you have any ideas where i may find replacements ?

i have a real nice little 17" NEC NX1760 DVI monitor in front of me here and occasionally the screen just goes black yet if you look real closely you can see the faint outline of things moving on the screen which indicated to me that the LCD panel is fine but the bulb is not. simply unplugging the power cable for 10 seconds then plugging it back in does seem to get it going again and it doesnt happen more than once or twice a week, but i would like to keep it running if possible as its a nice screen with excellent colour depth.

I've seen plenty of replacement CCFL tubes on ebay, and various online retailers sell them I believe. Fitting it is another matter though.

well if i can buy it i can fit it myself without too much hassle, :)

how old is it?
I'm guessing that if its sub 3 years then NEC will replace the bulb for you, or atleast send you a replacment


thats the problem... i have no clue as i was given it due to the very fault i discribed, and the person who gave it to me was also given it for that very same reason... neither the original or previous owners cottoned on to the fact that by unplugging its mains for ten seconds brings it back to life, and the original owner has now left the country :(

i have serial numbers from it but i cant find anywhere to check them on the NEC website :(
