For this monitor the problem wound up being two capacitors hit with the "capacitor plague" - (look it up on Wikipedia). and a burnt Surface mount resistor. I sourced all parts from junk i was going to throw out. This was a free fix.
Also be careful when working with capacitors and this inverter in general. It is EXTREMELY highvoltage and capable o giving quite a shock. Also to bridge a fuse like i did - is not very smart. Manufactures are really really cheap - so if they bother to put a fuse into a product - its probably for a good reason.
The only camera i have available is my iphone - which is poor and i apologize. Hopefully you can still get the point. I hope this helps some one. New inverter boards are about 65$ and not worth the price. Hell i only paid 180 for the whole minitor 3 years ago.
Step 1: Prove its the back light
1. turn the monitor while attached to a computer.
2. take a strong flashlight and shine it at the screen
3. look to see if you can make out any dim indication of an image.
*** remember that an lcd screen is like a glass pane. Inorder to see images - there must be a source of light to iluminate it.
