Fix for 2000fp Monitor Turning Off?

  • Hi,
     
    My 4 year-old Dell 2000fp Monitor (on a Dell Dimension 8250 running Windows XP) has been continuing to turn itself off as if it were going into power save mode.  The LED stays green and when I move the mouse or the space bar the monitor does not wake up.  I have to shut off the power to the monitor and turn it back on to wake the monitor up.  It remains on for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes.  Power Options are set to Never and Hibernation is disabled.  I tried the monitor on another computer with the same results. 
     
    Has anyone tried fixing the monitor.  I checked out this site as recommended in another thread on this forum  http://www.lcdrepair.us/2000inverter.html  They sell replacement boards with instructions on how to do the repair.  My symptoms are described exactly and appear to be caused by a faulty inverter board.  I was wondering if anybody had tried this fix and if it is hard to do and safe to try.  Did it work?
    Thanks ahead of time.
