Question about ViewSonic Va2431wm LCD Monitor

1 Answer

The screen occasionally darkens significantly,

From time to time the screen will darken and the brightness will not be restored for a variable period of time. When I turn the monitor on (or bring it out of what I presume is standby mode), it first shows a dark version of whatever should be on the screen, then goes almost black. I am almost positive this has nothing to do with the settings. Sometimes I can fix the problem by unplugging the vga cable, while other times I just have to wait it out.

    I recant, wiggling the cord around in the socket seems to do the trick, so I guess I'll grab a new one! Thanks!

Have you tried using a different VGA cable? Or replacing the cable with a new one?

    the problem persists when the cable is unplugged, so that shouldn't be the problem...if only :(

SOURCE: The screen is to bright and wont darken enough

It is likely the video card on the actual unit. If it is under warranty they will likely have you ship it back to them for either 1) repair or 2)replacement

Have you updated a Graphic driver? Does it Dim on battery and AC? Look at power settings. Control Panel, Power. You could Rool-Back the graphic driver to see if that changes the problem. A Gateway mt6841 has Windows XP OS, right?

Tv screen darkens at night


The set likely has a light sensor on the front of it to change brightness with light changes in the room, if not in the menu to switch on or off contact LG to see with the model number what can be done.

I have seen some where the sensor had to be disconnected inside to correct this issue. Sets as far back as 50 years ago had this issue.

LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT SCREEN


Darken the screen and either move the lid forward or backwards. Laptops have Liquid Crystal Screens and moving the lid backwards or forward will give the screen a different look.

If you need to adjust the brightness of the screen it is controlled by keys on your laptop. Most times to darken the screen you will have to hit the FN, CTRL or ALT key and hold it down while you hit the key that corresponds to the screen darken key. On some computers (even on my laptop) it will be the down arrow key, so i would press FN+the down arrow key. Remember to hold the first key down while you hit the next key. The icon used for most times to denote the brightness or darkness looks like a circular sun or a washer that goes on screws.

To whom it may concern, The screen is very dark. How can I fix it? Also, how can I change the brightness? thank you for your time!


To adjust the screen contrast (to lighten screen or to darken it)
  1. Press the [2nd] key and RELEASE it.
  2. Press and HOLD the UP Arrow to darken screen, or
  3. Press and HOLD the DOWN Arrow to lighten it.
Keep pressing the UP or Down arrows (whichever you need to press) until the screen contrast is adequate.

In your case, the screen is too dark, so you must press the DOWN arrow to lighten it.

Monitor darkens significantly when viewing some


The monitor might be on 'dynamic contrast'. Press menu on the remote control and does it say that 'magic bright' is on dynamic contrast?
If so, change it to something else and this may solve your problem.

Hope this helps!

In your monitor panel you'll find 4 buttons. Press the menu button and get into Magic Bright. There you can choose the one that best suits you. You can even set to Dynamic contract where the monitor adjusts the brightness according to the elements on the screen
