- Dell C500 brown(ish) screen

C500 get browner. Presently it's not bad, more of an off-white, not
quite beige. But it used to be pure white. What I'm wondering is which
part of the screen will I need to replace if it worsens beyond
I can and have replaced whole screens on laptops, but I'm wondering if
doing the backlight might be cheaper? IF it's the real cause, of
course. Keep in mind that I only paid $90 for the whole system, and
I'm not exactly rich.
Interestingly, the screen has gotten whiter as I've been typing this,
but there's still a brownish spot on the bottom quarter.
Re: Dell C500 brown(ish) screen
Thank you all for your advice. I have concluded that I will need to
replace the backlight sometime soon. However, I will wait for the
condition to get more prominent before ripping apart my screen. So I
won't be able to follow up on this for a while. Perhaps a few
I have noticed that the condition seems to be very much temperature
related, as it was very noticeable when I opened up my window and the
room dropped to around 40 degrees, but now the temp in here is mid 60s
and comfortable, and everything looks fine.
