How to change the 'Contrast' and 'Brightness' on the monitor screen


Bootup your computer and display your Windows Desktop. Make sure yourmonitor stays on for at least half an hour before you begin, so that itis properly warmed up.


Seta pure black image on the monitor so you can adjust the brightness. Toget a pure black image, do the following: Choose Start, then ControlPanel, then Display. This will open the Display Properties dialog box.Click the down arrow next to the representation of the desktop color inthe Color field. Choose black from the color palette, then click OK.


Maximizethe Brightness control on your monitor, then slowly reduce it until theblack of the image perfectly matches the black at the edge of thephysical screen. This puts the brightness at the proper setting.


Open a screen with a plain white background soyou can adjust the contrast. One of the best ways to do this is to open aword-processing document without any text in it. Gradually reduce the contrastsetting of your monitor until the white area of the screen begins to lookslightly gray or off-white. Then gradually increase the contrast until thewhite area on your monitor is pure white. This will give you the proper whitebalance. Now you've got your monitor ready for peak performance.

Hope this may help you solve your problem.

Black marks on screen i think it needs a degaus but dont know how to do it


LCD monitors do not need degaussing. They operate in a completely way to CRT monitors.
Tiny black marks are most likely dead pixels, if the black marks are large then the LCD screen may be damaged (cracked glass).
This type of damage cannot be repaired simply, the screen needs to be replaced.
I suggest you put your money towards a new LCD monitor.

Samsung monitor picture clicks off after 2-5 seconds...


Yes, It sounds like the backlight inverter circuit is shutting down. No inverter power, no backlight. On some monitors the inverter circuit will shot circuit the power power supply which makes the power light flash on some it just kills the backlight. You can usually check with a flashlight. Hold the flashlight pointed at the screen and see if you can see any of the icons or background picture. If you can then it is the backlight circuit or backlight tubes, usually the circuit.

Picture not centered on my philips 47'' lcd tv


NOTE:(Edited and copied from another thread on Fixya.com, c7carl)

Picture is not centered on monitor leaving a 2 1/2 inch; black border on Philips LCD
By dmorrow54 on Nov 13, 2007
Again, nothing in manual for Philips LCD will correct the fact that the picture in HD-D mode will not center. The picture runs off the monitor on the left (facing the monitor) with a 2 1/2" black border on the right (facing the monitor). Using the format button on the remote of directional arrows will not correct the issue. The wide-screen/ full-screen function with format does nothing. Moving into TV mode, the format function works to display screen in several ways 4:3, 19:2, super-zoom, wide-screen, full-screen. Help, please. posted 3 years ago

I have a Philips 30 inch LCD and solved the problem by using the circular arrow button on the TV remote. Pointing it at the TV and clicking "right" (3 o'clock on the button), the picture moved right. Same thing on for "left". Worked for me.

The screen flickers into hour-glass figure.


It's the tube going out. You need to replace it. If you want to stay with CRT monitors, you should be able to pickup a used one for around $10.00 on Craigslist.

Convergence problem


http://www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp/mytrevo/myTrevo.jsp?page=man

You can download the manual here. Insrtuctions for auomatic convergence are described. I copied the instructions below.

Automatic Convergence
Your HD Monitor’s picture tubes might have been disturbed during delivery or
after you moved the HD Monitor, causing the color in your HD Monitor to be
out of alignment. The colors adjust by starting auto convergence.
IMPORTANT: Auto convergence works best once the HD Monitor has
warmed up for at least an hour. If you've just unpacked your HD Monitor,
it's a good idea to repeat the Auto convergence function when the
HD Monitor's been running for at least an hour. See page 38 for more
information about Auto convergence.
1. Press OK to begin auto convergence.
2. When the auto convergence is complete, the Red center convergence menu
appears. The cross in the middle of the screen should be yellow. If it is not,
use the arrow buttons to move the red cross to overlap the green cross.
Press OK when adjustments are complete.
3. The Blue center convergence menu appears with a cyan cross in the middle
of the screen. If it is not, use the arrow
