Has anyone converted their 20" MLD Display from CCFL to LEDs?
« on: August 23, 2017, 01:56:52 PM »
I read a really neat article that shows how to convert your MLD monitor from the old CCFL bulbs into new LEDs.


It is supposed to:


1 - drop the number of fans in the monitor from 6 down to 3
2 - make the monitor run cooler
3 - reduce the electric consumption from 10 amps to 4


Has anyone done this?

Can you post a link to the article.  Sounds like a cool thing to do.
If you find the site helpful, consider becoming a contributing member.  It pays for costs and keeps this site alive.  I do not respond to requests for private, one-on-one help. Your questions should be posted in the appropriate forum where they may help others as well.

I'd love to but I don't think I can -
I subscribe to slot tech magazine

I recommend anyone who is on this forum buy the magazine.  Very good reading

Yes of course - but NLG is more family and home based helping forum.


I will post my results....... I don't know what the future holds. 




probably a dead monitor.

Thank you for all the info in this thread!  I ordered a couple sets of LEDs to convert my ccfl tubes.

I know this is an old post but curious if the LEDs improved your picture quality and color?  My MLD display colors are not nearly as sharp as the top monitor

Also if someone has a copy of that article above, let me know.  I think it's too old or the site isn't being maintained.  It won't allow me to download it. It'll be the first time removing the monitor and tearing it down so any info is appreciated!   :thank_you:

Here's the entire article.  I really don't know if that would fix your problem or not.  It looks like you have a lot of yellowing on it.  Do both of the panels (inner and outer) look the same?

Thank you Tilt!  I appreciate it.

Yes, as best I can tell.  I've not had one of these apart yet but hoping it needs cleaned.

I replaced the inner panel and touchscreen on my G23 MLD monitor.  It wasn't real difficult, but a lot of small screws to remove.  If you give it a try use your cellphone to make a video documenting what you're doing along the way.  That makes it much easier to reassemble it later.  Dust is also you're enemy, try to keep it as dustfree as possible or you'll be upset when you get it all back together and see a visible piece of dust stuck between the layers.
