There will be a brightness switch it will be a combination of the fn key and a key with a sun symbol and an up arrow on it (usually the up cursor key) if that doesn't work i'm afraid that your backlight or inverter has died, you can get replacement parts on ebay but if you havent done this sort of repair before it may be better to take it into a shop to do, unless you are still under warantee then the manufacturor has to repair/replace, its a good idea to get everything backed up off your Hard drive first.

double check that its the backlight by pluggin the laptop into an external monitor first as if it is a backlight issue it will display fine externally

hope that helps

You should be able to use function+f7 to dim and function+f8 to brighten.

Dim screen on HP. Any diagnostics I can run to isolate the problem?


The problem is in the inverter board, "located below the screen" or the backlight behind the LCD display is faulty. In most cases the inverter is the issue and replacement only option, "be aware that high voltage is present when running"

Dim display on laptop LCD screen


The part you need is called a CCFL Backlight. Basically, there are lights in the screen that back-light/illuminate the display. Over time it burns out and you are left with a dim and completely dull display. These are a pain to replace and expensive when bought from the manufacturer. But this site has a break down with dis-assembly instructions...if you want to try it.

My emachines m6811 screen shows a poor quality


Sounds like the pc is set to a low pixel setting, try going to properties and adjust display settings.
ie. Right click on desktop image, click on Properties. WIndow will pop up, click on SETTINGS tab and adjust Screen Resolutions and/or Color Quality. That should make the change. Sometimes programs installed changes those settings. Good Luck!

Phone display is very dim-can barely read


Well, first you will have to check your options, if you can read it enough to get in there.  You may have the backlight turned off.  If the backlight is not turned off, then you probably have a bad backlight and will have to take it to your provider to get it fixed.  Replacing a screen/backlight is not something I would attempt to do unless you are certain you know exactly what you are doing as you can render the phone completely useless.

Two beeps usually indicates a memory problem, try re-seating the RAM. You may need to purchase new RAM.
Good luck.

Laptop Screen Has Different color lines


screen fault, needs new one but if it doesn't happen to an external one.

hook up a normal pc screen to the side vga and see if the same is there, if the same then it's possibly the refresh rate is too high or a motherboard issue
