OK! IF YOU CAN GET INTO YOUR MENU SETTING YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SET THE BRIGHTNESS ON THE LCD. IF YOU HAVE YOUR MANUAL IT SHOULD TELL YOU HOW. IF YOU NEED THE MANUAL, GO ONLINE TO THE CAMERA WEBSITE AND YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD AN ONLINE COPY THERE. IF THIS DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM, YOU MAY HAVE TO REPLACE THE LCD. THIS CAN BE DONE BY ANY GOOD REPAIR SHOP. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP,REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217.

You could have a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp, To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

It may be that your backlight has burnt out, or your LCD inverter has gone bad, if you can hear a high pitched sound coming from the screen it is more than likely the converter, you can order replacements online...

HP Pavilion, Screen working, but extremely dark!


Hi,
As per your description, I find that the issue is with the LCD Backlight which is also called as LCD Inverter which lights up the LCD to show us the Display on the LCD Display.
If this Backlight is gone bad, you will be barely able to see the Display on the LCD.
Coming to the Noise you had mentioned above can be from the Cooling fans of the Notebook which will be spinning at high speed when the Notebook starts and will reduce gradually after few minutes.
I recommend you to try cleaning the Cooling fan vents using any Vacuum Cleaner or Air Blower.
I recommend you to contact any nearest HP Authorized Service Center and get the LCD Backlight replaced.
Hope this helps....
