Question about HP 90 19 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

Getting More Brightness/Contrast ?

Im using an HP 90 (D2842) 19" monitor and find all movies and pictures to be too dark to view. I have the brightness/contrast setting set up to the max and the monitor's COLOR setting on RGB (set to max). Is there a way to get this monitor to display brighter? My brother's monitor from Optiquest displays just fine whereas the HP is at least half as bright. The HP monitor is working fine, it just seems HP has this unit engineered for such a low brightness level. Perhaps shaving the brightness/contrast dial-knobs so that they can turn beyond their limits could help? Thanks.

    With my experience with PCs it seems that the majority of Gateway and some HP monitors display darker with Windows XP. My aunt and my mother have the exact same gateway PC with different Gateway monitors. After I upgraded them to XP the screens displayed a lot of black and dark coloring. I tried a Compaq monitor and the color was fine. If anyone finds a solution to this problem it would be great.

Had to move from one location to another. Soyo screen stays blue and we are unable to get a clear white screen with the blue background. Tried color changes but no luck.

If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the screen back to the shop or to a repair person. screens are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, they can store very high voltages. Possibilities: weak CRT, low filament voltage/bad connection/bad component. possible fixes: connecting a resistor in parallel with the one in the circuit from the screen (G2) pin on the CRT, adjustment of the screen voltage potentiometer internally on the LOPT or board. If this doesn't make much sense I would suggest you take it to a service shop. Good luck

Go to "Start" , "All Programs" , find "DivX" , go to "DivX Codec" , go to "Decoder Configuration Utility" , set the brightness and contrast from there
This worked for my movies using Vista.

HOW TO SET BRIGHTNESS OF THE SCREEN?


Hi,

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.


On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.



Thanks....

Adjust your monitor's brightness and contrast

On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.


Laptop display. Laptop displays don't have brightness or contrast buttons on the front.

For a majority of laptops, there isn't a control for setting the contrast.


However, you can set the brightness of many laptops by pressing and holding the Fn key, and then pressing a function key to decrease brightness ( ) or increase brightness ( ).

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Calibrate-your-display#

When using Display Color Calibration on a laptop, set the display to the maximum brightness setting.


Adjusting brightness automatically using adaptive brightness

Adaptive brightness is a feature in Windows that uses a light sensor to automatically adjust the display brightness to match the lighting conditions in your computer's surroundings.


To use adaptive brightness, you must have light sensors installed and enabled on your computer.


To determine if your laptop or computer monitor supports adaptive brightness, look for the Enable adaptive brightness setting in Power Options (mentioned in the following procedure) or check the information that came with your computer.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off

Open Power Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.


Under any plan, click Change plan settings.

Click Change advanced power settings.

In the list, expand Display, and then expand Enable adaptive brightness.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is running on battery power, click On battery, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is plugged into an outlet, click Plugged in, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

Click Apply. Click OK.


hope this helps

Princeton VF723 monitor is getting very dark. Brightness control is up full. Do I need a new monitor or maybe just a new driver?


i would start looking for a nice 22" LCD monitor.
Your monitor was manufactured by phillips and this symptom is very common. The crt gun gets week and has low emissions. The vid card driver has very lillte to do with the brightness control. However if your card is one of the newer nvidia or ati cards there are control ls in the software for brightness. color temp. contrast ect. Doesn't hurt to check but my guess is monitor.
Check out a LG or view-sonic for new ones.

Hi!

Its actually normal. That normally happens to some monitor models at the 6500K setting. Try a higher one.

Screen is dark and contrast and brightness are up to max, can a new bulb be put into the monitor?


To replace the crt picture tube will be an expensive exercise as they are not bulbs as such but the entire screen needs to be replaced as they are a complete unit.

Ultravision image dark


Good Day, tfarmer;

Since you have replaced the lamp, which is the normal cause for a dark picture. Have you checked your video settings?

The brightness level should be set at about 55 to 60%, the contrast should be set at about 90% and the video temp should be at normal or high.

If all these are set about this way, then I would think that the light engine might be going bad.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

it depends on what your using it for, adjust colour tones to what you think looks natural, contrast between 80-90, keep sharpness below 30. just have a play around till you find what best suits the source material.
