NO Thanks! I don't need your help. I called my son and he walked me through the problem so that it is fixed.

Brightness set to all the down


There should be a menu button on the monitor. Press this button, it has it's own brightness settings. Press the "factory settings" button; monitor should return to normal brightness.

At start up my viewsonic va1912wb display blinks several times then i can see the picture but it is dark almost unreadable. Today it went darker than yesterday. HELP!


If it is dark due to brightness adjustment, get that adjusted. Usually when you adjust the brightness by pressing the menu button, the menu screen would not be dark. If everything is dark dark dark and you can only see some display but in very pitch darkness, then your monitor is a goner, backlit for the monitor is dead, and your monitor will need to be replaced. You can fix the backlit tubing, however it is risky, and expensive, and would cost less if you bought a replacement.

My dell inspiron 546's monitor has gone dark the screen is still visable but really dark how do i make it bright again i already tried the brightness and contrast on monitor


It might be that the CFL lighting tubes on your monitor have failed, in which case they need to be replaced. Borrow a screen to try on your computer to test if it is in actual fact the your screen that is faulty. This is normally fixed by a computer technician! If it is under warranty return it!

I have a dell Dimension 2300 and the images are very dark. I don't think it is from the monitor.


Try these steps: 1. Check the monitor settings. Access the On Screen Display (OSD) Menu System. Adjust the contrast and brightness using the control buttons in the monitor.
2. Run the monitor self test. Unplug the video cable from the computer (cable from monitor to the back of the computer). Usually it has a blue or white connector. Turn on the monitor alone. It should display the self test pattern (white, red, green & blue). If the images are dark in the self test, it is a problem with the monitor.
2. Rotate the monitor to face a different direction. This will help in eliminating sunlight glare which can cause poor picture quality.
3. Test your computer using another working monitor. If the problem occurs in a known good monitor, then it is a video card or motherboard (if your video card is integrated) problem.
I hope these options help.

The auto-darken feature(monitor goes dark on dark


In your monitor panel you'll find 4 buttons. Press the menu button and get into Magic Bright. There you can choose the one that best suits you. You can even set to Dynamic contract where the monitor adjusts the brightness according to the elements on the screen

My computer monitor has somehow turned its brightness all the way down, possibly due to me choosing a new screensaver which was already installed on my computer. Sadly, my monitor, an Emprex LM-1704...


Find yourself a dark room or wait for the night to come. The darkest monitor adjustment could somehow reveal some light when there are no other light source available.

You may also hook a conventional CRT monitor and make your changes (such as bringing your computer back to its original settings). The darkest adjustment in CRT monitor could still render discernible displays.
