I've got a 22'' LCD monitor with a damaged CCFL inverter. It has the inverter (4 lamps), power and controller as separate boards.
I would like to replace it with a 19'' LCD monitor part that has the power board and inverter as one module. I have tested this module very briefly with the 22'' monitor and it lights the backlight lamps.
As I have no means of measuring the output from the 19'' inverter and I can't find any specs for the 22'' screen anyway, I have no idea of what power is needed to drive the lamps.
Are most types of CCFL inverters compatible, for fixed ranges of lamp size?
Can I assume that the new inverter wont burn the lamps/my house/my city?
What specs (aside from voltage/current) should I look for when replacing an inverter?
