Question about ViewSonic VA702b 17" LCD Monitor
I have a Gateway 400DS4 Series Laptop but my monitor has gone very very dark. The display is okay once I attach an external monitor (the external monitor works just fine). I bought a new LCD but it's still dark even after changing the LCD. Do you have any idea on the problem? My monitor is really dark. It's a sony set to XGA resolution. Trying to change display doesn't yield any brightness control
Brightness control is through the shortcut keys. You have to make sure
the Gateway multifunction keyboard utility is installed for the keys to
Then you would use the FN key and the Up Down key at the same time.
If it adjusts up and down and is still too dark, there is a good chance that the bulbs in those screens are failing (screen may tell you if there is any pinkish tint to it or if it is dark at the bottom center when you first fire it up.
If it doesn't go dark to brighter then check the wires going to the inverter. one controls the brightness adjustment.
