Slightly less functional Studio Display ideas...

I have a 17" LCD Studio Display that was until several months ago working good. Then, out of the blue, it devloped a apparently common problem of the backlights going out (or more specifically the inverter board for the backlights).

I did a quick look for a replacement part and found it on sale for about $100. That was too much for just another monitor (a NICE monitor, no doubt, but just one of many). So, it has sat on a shelf for some time now. Until, that is, I took it down to look at it.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas on what to do with it. Any hacking ideas. I've seen how-tos on how to build your own projector but I'm just kind of 'meh' on that.

Rip out the inverter and tube

Rip out the inverter and tubes and install strips of white LEDs; solves the hack want and the backlight issue in one step. Wink
