My monitor become faded black after an hour.

Specs: Windows XP
I am worried, cause my LCD screen monitor (acer 19" LCD) is turning into black after an hour of use. My room was not air conditioned, do you think it is the reason? Sometimes it only takes a 45mins in using then it will turn into faded black. What is the problem, and what should I do? Please HELP.
Thanks..God Bless.

Could be the florescent lamps in the back of the monitor going out, the inverters (which power them) or bad solder joints. If the monitor was in a hot room, then that probably didn't help. You may be able to tackle the job yourself if you're handy with a soldering iron and aren't scared off by opening up the back of the monitor. Unlike CRT monitors, LCD's are less likely to cause a nasty (potentially lethal) shock from a flyback transformer. Here's a youtube video on a different monitor (but you can pick up some tips from it). If you're not comfortable with doing this, then I'd suggest having a tech look at it...
