Question about Vizio L37 Television

Open Question

Brightness Jumps Up for 2-3 sec

After selecting channel 12, any channel i go to after this the brightness level is at maxium, then changes back to normal level after 2-3 sec. This happens on the "TV" setting, not "DTV" or "Digital HD". Any suggestions? I contacted tech support and they suggested the following:
Dear Vizio Customer,

b. Press button to display Setup page;
c. Press button to highlight Reset All settings;
d. Press button to start reset.
2) AC reset: Unplug the AC cord of TV for about 15 minutes and plug it back.
2. Please check if the buttons on the side of the panel work.
3. Rescan the channels:
Auto Search only functional in TV input, please press TV button on your remote control to ensure your TV is in TV input. And then rescan channels as follows:
a. Press MENU button, OSD(on screen display) displays.
b. Press button to display the TV page.

g. Wait for a while and don't press any button. When TV finish searching the channels, press EXIT to quit.

- i tried this, however after leaving the TV unplugged for 20 mins, the TV still contained the memory of my privious saved channels. so, i don't think what they suggested worked.

I had a similar problem and the way to solve this is to reset the set from the remote.  Set TV to standby and press Info, menu, mute then power.  The set should turn on with the service menu available scroll down until you select reset press right hand arrow next to enter and then enter.  TV will turn off.  When switched on it goes into Plug and Play mode to reset the analogue and digital tuner.  Allow a full reset then you should be ok.

How do i increase the screen brightness HP elitebook 8530p


Sounds like your keybinding/hotkey combo is not doing its job. (or your bulb in the display is going out)

You can open up Control Panel and adjust brightness from there.

Step 1 Click "Start ' Control Panel ' Hardware and Sound ' Power Options" to open the Power Options window.
Step 2 Click and drag the bottom "Screen Brightness" slider to the right to increase screen brightness and to the left to decrease it. Making this adjustment changes the brightness level only for the current power source; if you change power sources, the screen brightness may change again.
Step 3 Click "Change Plan Settings" on whichever power plan is currently selected.
Step 4 Click and drag the "Adjust Plan Brightness" slider to the right to increase brightness for each of the power sources, such as "On Battery" or "Plugged In." If you want high-precision numeric control, you need to access the advanced settings.
Step 5 Click "Change Advanced Power Settings."
Step 6 Click "+" next to "Display" and then "Display Brightness" to expand these options.
Step 7 Click "On Battery" and enter a percentage in the field provided. Choosing "100" will set the screen to maximum brightness; any other brightness will be a percentage of the maximum brightness. To increase the brightness, make sure the number you enter is higher than the current value.
Step 8 Click "Plugged In" and set its brightness percentage.
Step 9 Click "Apply" and then "OK" to close the Advanced Settings window.
Step 10 Click "Save Changes" to save any changes you made on the Edit Plan Settings page. If you only make changes in the Advanced Settings page, the Save Changes button will be grayed out. If that's the case, just click "Cancel."


Hope this helps!

How do I adjust brightness level on reading page of my kindle app


Fixing the brightness of your screen is easy on the Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Paperwhite, all of which provide screen brightness controls. This feature is not available on the original Kindle, however, as the screen is not backlit.

Kindle Fire Step 1 Tap the "Quick Settings" icon in the upper right corner of your Kindle screen. The icon looks like a gear.

step 2
Select "Brightness" from the Settings menu. If you don't see it immediately, tap the "More" icon to access all of your settings options.

step 3
Use your finger to toggle the slider from left to right to increase or decrease the brightness of your screen.

Kindle Fire HD and HDX Step 1 Slide your finger downwards from the top of the screen to display the Quick Settings menu.
step 2
Select "Brightness" from the Settings menu.
step 3
Toggle the slider to the left or the right to fix the screen brightness.

Kindle Paperwhite Step 1 Select the lightbulb icon on your Kindle screen. This icon is present when you're reading a book.
step 2
Move the vertical slider with your finger to achieve the ideal screen brightness.
step 3
Tap and hold the "+" sign to achieve maximum brightness. To achieve the lowest brightness possible, tap and hold the "-" sign.
