Backlight issue with Dell E2414
I have a Dell E2414 24 inch 1080p display and it is doing some funky stuff. Lately it has started seeming like the backlight is failing, but not entirely. It is mostly in the corners, and then if the monitor is shut off for about a minute or more, then turned on, it will work for a while, anywhere between 1 to 8 hours sometimes. This started just earlier this week so I don't have a large sample size of how long it works for after a power off but since the monitor still works fine aside from some uneven backlight I was wondering if there would be a cheap part to fix it or if I should just save my pennies for a replacement. I found a dell forum posting from a few years back which the solution was, RMA it. well considering I got this monitor used a few years ago that isn't an option for me, so I am looking at repair options. Pic attached of the issue.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
