The screen is darker when unplugged

Hello,

I have an LG laptop (LG LE50 Express). Normally the screen is very bright the laptop is plugged to the electricity, and much darker when I disconnect it from the cables (to save battary life). A few days ago it became the opposite - The screen is darker when the laptop is plugged, and much brighter when unplugged.

I mostly work with the laptop when it's plugged to electricity (faster, better to watch DVD's, fast downloading from the internet ect.). What should I do to change it back to the way it was?

On your laptop there should be key combinations to change the brightness of your screen. Once you do this, it will stay that way for each mode until you change it again. There should be in blue above the arrow keys, the F keys, or the number keys, a symbol that indicates brightness; one key for up and one key for down. You press the FN key and that corresponding key to turn your brightness up or down. Once you got it set, leave it. It will stay that way until you change it again.

I have a hard time seeing my screen in XP - where do I go to adjust the brightness of the screen


How hard a time is it? Maybe your screen is going bad or the LCD Inverter is bad.

Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that makes the display brighter or darker. There will be one key for brightness and one key for darker. Normally it will have the icon of a sun or washer with the up or down arrow.

The screen brightness changes due to plug in or battery power


This is quite common actually I see it a lot. There really isn't any reason, it seems that when on batteries it trys to save power by Dimming Down, but it often just mucks up.. I always now set it via the keyboard keys. whenever I change from power adapter, to battery.

Check your display settings in the Power save part of Control Panel. You can set a brightness for battery and AC. Normally you set it brighter on AC and dimmer on battery (to save battery life) but if you've adjusted it for some reason that would explain it

Brightness


most monitors get darker with age -- for a while you can counter this by turning up the Brightness and Contrast controls, but this only gives you a little extra time (and probably speeds up the decay process anyway).
