Open Question

Sceptre D73F Dragonflat Not enough contrast

Dragon eye/Dragon flat CRT monitor, 17" manufactured April 12 2001 Adjustments are on front, OSD type. This display is pale, even when brightness control is right down and contrast right up. Other settings OK. A quick look inside shows a bit of dust otherwise no obvious problems. All parts thru hole, can't see any SMD. I can't find any obvious controls or pots to adjust. Is this the end?

Try your monitor on a different computer and see if you get the same result, if not, there is a problem with your pc operating system and or video card. If you get the same result, get a new lcd if it is not under warranty.

Sceptre LCD monitor blank screen, blinking power light

Something has failed or is failing in the monitor. It may be serviceable, but may not be cost effective to do so unless something has just come loose. I'm assuming you have no problems with the new monitor. Your time line is a little confusing.

Display menu virus? :(

try disconnecting your network cable and adjust the settings again, if you cant, enter safe mode by pressing f8 in the startup and select safemode then adjust the contrast there.

Or is this in the CRT monitor? inside the monitor? there are no viruses ever made for monitors. So its most likely a hardware fault in the crt. Maybe its time to buy a new one. LCD preferably easyer on your eyes.
