1. adjust the monitors brightness and contrast
2. adjusting the brightness and contrast with your video card software

if that fails

1. decide if the monitor is worth the money to repair or scrap
2. you can buy a brightness kit
3. you can have the monitor ( rejuvinated ) " the tube part "

Most monitors lose brightness over time , but don't give up on CRT becuase it's 60 years of proven technology and can provide unilimited colors. the situation has improved with newer monitors.

if the monitor claims it has extra bright technology , don't trust it because that extra circuitry can cause premature failure of the other circuits such as the vertical , that was especialy true of viewsonic A90F+ , and it's not a crime to tell the world they don't stand up to the test of time.

for some reason certan monitors last a long long time and others don't.

the smaller 17 inch monitors can "most of the time" outlast the bigger 19 inch size monitors.
That prety much tells you we're being sold junk.

so buyer beware.

KDS xFlat monitor 17 inch is a good buy for around 100$
while the Proview models that look like them are NOT they lose focus fast.
and almost all DELL monitors last way beyond expectation.
CTX monitors offten lose every colorgun except green lol

I've worked in the monitor repair field for a long time , I've replaired countless monitors.

Always buy a digital monitor with digital controls , analogue controls are prone to being knocked out of adjustment very easly and you don't want that.

if your monitor is older than 5 years old and begining to fade , it's time to seriously consider buying a new one.

You'd be supprised at the quality of some of the off brand monitors vs. the high and mighty big name brand monitors.

I hope these tips help you get the best monitor for your money.

it's just unwise to spend more than 200$ for a monitor givin their life span before failure.

so go out there and take the bull by the horns and when you get a good little monitor , hold on to it
love it , and if you're smart you'll buy two of them and stick one in the closet in cause the one you're using does fail.

I think even ole magic seadog would agree with me on that..

have a good one , shalom >:D<

Screen suddenly dimmed, will not get brighter


Your LCD screen is dying. The backlights can go over time. Other then try to replace the screen there is not much you can do. You can always run it off an external monitor if you are like most people and use it a desk most of the time anyhow.

The top part (about one third) of my SyncMaster 920LM screen is brighter than the rest and seems to retain simultaneously the new and the previous picture for 2 to 3 seconds before it gradually fades out...


This is usually do to a section of your controller chips dying. This is not fixable by the end user, the only thing I could say to try is to try different resolutions to see if you can reduce the issue.

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

You need to change your computer display settings following your TV user manual.

Here follow the compatible display settings as on page 57-chapter 9 on manual.

Put resolution 640x480 and frequency 59,940Htz.

Here the user manual where you can find the same information on chapter 9.

Computer monitor goes blank after initial start-up reaches the desktop


Try setting your graphics card output to something simpler like a basic 640x480 resolution 64k colours and see if it still does it... it maybe that you have the resolution/colour depth to high for the monitor to properly handle

if it is stable at the lower setting slowly increase untill you reach a point that you and your monitor are both happy
