Backlight issue with Dell E2414

Hello all,

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.

search Google images for "back light failing in monitor." If it's intermittent it might not be completely dead but I wouldn't spend the time or money fixing it when 1080p monitors are so cheap nowadays. Surely you can pick up a used one for less money (especially if you assign value to your time) it'd take to repair.

plus if you can't figure out what is wrong with it and you take internet people advice, then there's a likely chance the internet people don't know what they're talking about and you spend money to fix it and it doesn't fix it

I have looked into backlight failing but all the examples are full failure and not a weird one like this. I got the monitor for cheap enough if i spent $40 on a part or parts to fix it it may be worth it to me considering similar replacements even used people in my area are wanting $70-$100 for them which i find myself asking, what are you smoking. I got an Acer 24 inch 1080p monitor for $25 4 years ago so why used monitors seem to be inflated currently i have no idea.
If i were to spend some pocket change fixing it I would go into it with the mind set that the time and money investment at best will repair the device, and at worst simply be a learning experience that repairing monitors is not worth it. I will be looking for a tear down video or something for similar models to see if would be in over my head.

Thanks

Fair point.
I must have just done a google search and not an image search. I will simply milk it along until i have to smash with a hammer and replace.

Cheers bud
