Default Re: (URGENT) SyncMaster p2450 Question

Check on the website how long the warranty for your monitor is. If it's under warranty, it won't cost anything like I already said. If it's out of warranty, contact them and tell them your backlight or inverter went out and find out how much their repair charge is.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

If it's under warranty and they allow for local drop off then it shouldn't cost you anything.

do you have any idea how much it'll cost me to replace it or is it better to send it back to the manufacturer to be fixed or get a new one if its possible?
This is a common repair job, so just about any reputable shop should be able to do this - if not under warranty.

Parts costs vary widely from brand to brand, model number, and monitor size but generally run from $50 to $150 for both inverter and bulb. Labor charges should be no more than for 1 hour, 2 at the tops. To save on labor, there are many tutorials on line - but of course, if something goes wrong, you can only yell at yourself. If the shop messes up, they are responsible.
