Hi strat1971,

So the monitor buttons don't work also right? Yeah, normally you should try to adjust the brightness control first on the monitor. If that doesn't work next step would be ofcourse to check the cabling of the monitor to the computer. Try reseating the video cable from the back of the computer. If no go, then the next step is running the monitor self-test. You can do this by just disconnecting the video cable from the back of the computer, and leaving the monitor plugged into the power outlet.

All monitors has a form of self-test that it does to check the functionality, usually a picture or a color bar display on the screen or even a message that the monitor is on self-test. If it's still dim on that screen, then sadly you already have a hardware problem that may require to you buy a new monitor.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

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.

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

This is because your screen is not compatible with any resoultion past 1280 x 1024. Look at your screen's specifications here: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200602/20060210090838125_BN59-00521A-01Eng.pdf (Page 76 listed as Maximum resolution)

If you want to go past that, you must purchase and/or use a different monitor. Just be sure to look at the Maximum Resolutions BEFORE you purchase a new monitor!

Tha display screen is dark, shows very faintly.


Can you be more specific ?
The first step is to isolate the system at fault:
1) Monitor hardware ?
Test it on another PC or
Try a different monitor on the same PC
Check monitor adjustments.
Check the video cable, try another one.

2) What kind of a monitor is it?
CRT (like and old TV) or an LCD flat screen

3) Video card problem, possible but not as likely

4) Video driver or operating software settings issue
wrong video mode, video settings the monitor can't handle,
incorrect device driver

lots of possibilities here.
