I aim to replace the CCFL backlight of a Dell U2711 monitor but still retain the original brightness controls. I am using the readily available 12V 5050 led strips. Fortunately the power supply to the CCFL inverter was 24v so it was east to connect 2 of the 12V LED strips in series. The LEDs definitely provide enough brightness, however I now need to build the control circuitry to handle the brightness.
Enjoy this project?
