<_< My dell laptop Inspiron 8200 monitor is suddenly not working. The screen is black. When I turn it off and then on again it works for a few seconds and then goes black again - almost as if it is in standby mode or something. It has a red cast to it sometimes when it comes on. There was really no warning, no prior flickering or such. It flickers now though when it briefly comes on and then turns black. The computer is only 2years old. Thanks for any ideas or suggestions.

Welcome twopaw <_<!

I would think the battery is dead. Have you charged it recently? If so, please make sure the battery pack is sungged-in securely. If all else fails, the battery might have gone bad for good recently. Try using a different battery if you can.

99% of the time the power inverter in the display is going out happens all the time with laptops the power inverter supplies power to the back lights in the display......contact the company that made the computer order the inverter mine was only 23 dollars popped the front of the display off unplugged the inverter and plugged in the new one ......and back in business.. <_<
