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! :)

Lock on monitor adjustments don't know how to turn off the lock so we can adjust brightness and color


Follow these instructions :
  1. Turn on your Samsung monitor (if it isn't already.)

  2. Press the "AUTO" button on your Samsung monitor. This will run the automatic configuration utility. This will look at your current computer settings and adjust your monitor to best match those. This will take a few seconds. If this has calibrated the monitor to meet your needs, you are finished with the process. If it hasn't, continue to Step 3.
  3. Press the "Menu" button on your Samsung computer monitor.
  4. Use the arrows and the "Enter" button on the monitor to highlight and select various settings categories.
  5. Use the "Brightness" menu on your Samsung monitor to adjust how bright or dark you want the image.
  6. Use the "Colors" menu to adjust how prominent certain colors are displayed on your Samsung monitor.
  7. Use the "Contrast" menu to adjust the level of black on your Samsung monitor.
  8. Select "Save and Exit" to save your changes and exit the Samsung monitor's on Screen menu.

Desktop starts normally. 152s too dark to see. only viible with desklight shone on angle. menu adjustment doesnt solve problem. any fix or is monitor buggered?


Yes, there is one solution.
Open the monitor case, then see for Flyback transformer ( with cable attached to the CRT Tube with rubber cap).Then using screw driver (+ or - ), adjust the screen positions until you get the best brightness.Usually it's on the lower part of Flyback transformer, on the upper side, it's used to adjust the focus.

Dark screen


Looks like we got disconnected during our chat session. I still think it may be those bulbs. If there was any kind of surge, it could have taken them out. I'm looking for specifics on the lamp though. If I find anything, I'll post it here.
