Question about Xerox Phaser 8500/DN Printer

1 Answer

Cant read front display contrast too low?

The printer comes on and you can see the writing on the display only when the printer goes to power save but it is VERY faint. As soon as you hit the button to wake it up to try to do anything, like change the contrast, you can not see the writing on the screen. The back light does come on.

My casio protrek 2500t watch is in power saving mode but even after keeping in dark for hours between 10pm and 6 am the display does not go off.Please help.


I own the same PRW-2500-1A (all black).Check if under the hours reading, PS appears.If yes,power saving function is activated.
Normally, Power Saving Function is enabled automatically (if activated) if the watch stays in complete dark for sometime.If after a couple of hours in the dark the watch comes suddenly under bright light,the display goes on immediately.Hour interval (10pm-6am) has nothing to do with Power Saver.
Try the following:
a)Deactivate and reactivate (or vice versa) the PS.
b)Leave the watch in the dark for a couple of hours .Then,still in the dark,try,using a very low power light (just that you can,barely read) to check if display is blank.If not you may have a problem with the light sensor found at the bottom of the display.Will be a very rare case but you have to take the watch to a CASIO authorized service.

How bellsouth caller id ci 43 contrast adjustments?


If the display is too light or too dark, you should adjust the contrast of the display.
Press either review button until NO CALL or the number of calls displays. Press and hold the READ button approximately 5 seconds until the display reads CONTRAST followed by a number. Release the READ button and use the review up and review down buttons to change the contrast number. When you are finished, press READ again.

No screen


Hold down the feed button on the front of the printer for a few seconds and watch for the contrast on the LCD panel to start changing. Keep holding it down (screen will cycle continuously from light to dark until you let go) until you get to the desired contrast then let go.

I just had my Emachines D520 laptop display replaced because it was cracked. The new display is too bright, and the Fn keys that are supposed to control brightness don't work properly. When I use these...


Try going to control panel, then device manager, and try right clicking and updating all drivers that have to do with graphics or your screen. If this doesn't do the trick then try finding the display drivers manually.

The best way is through the buttons in front pannel. It will bring an OSD (On screen Display). Adjust the brightness and contrast from there. ( But I guess you have tried it allready )

Then the other solution which i uses to brighten my display is Power Strip.
You can also lessen the brightness/sharpness/contrast.

Check if there is a contrast setting... Unfortunately, sometimes the setting can;t be viewed when contrast is too low. Read your manual and find how to get into that mode if it exists and turn it up.

CANON iR C2105!! no display on the LCD!


try adjusting the contrast, open front door and look under the panel there should be an adjustment screw for the contrast, if it doesnt work I suspect it is the panel itself that is bad.
