Some letters (pixels?) fading out

    Okay I figured it out myself. I had to reset the resolution in the control panel from 960x600 to 1024x768. That took care of the fading problem. (Though words were too small for me, so I had to adjust the fonts up to 120.) However, the brightness of the monitor still cannot be adjusted. Any ideas? Thanks.

Replace the bad capacitors in the power supply. They are usually visually detectable (tops bulged). The ones that usually good bad in that model are 1000mfd. 16v.

SOURCE: 151FPb

One of my customers had the same problem. So last night, I took it apart and found a cold solder connection on a coil that had white goop on it. Goop is usually put on coils to stop oscillations. This is probably an inherrant problem. If you tap the back of the monitor with the back of a screwdrive, it should start working for awhile. Take it apart and take the shield off and do the same till you find the loose component. Don't hit it too hard. When you find the loose component. If you move the component back and and forth, it should work and not work. Take the board off and re-solder the component. Put the board back on and tap it lightly and see if you got the right component. If not repeat the proceedure until it works or pitch it...

SOURCE: screen keeps fading

I don't know for sure if this will help but it's worth a try. Go to Start, control pannel, system, advanced, performance, settings, and click adjust for best performance. This is a Windows XP fix but the same thing may apply to older OS's (95, 98, 2000, ME, NT (although you may have to set it a diferent way). Many other things could be your problem but this is an easy thing to try.

How can I fix my this ? Pixel colour fades on screan , though battery is fully charge , how can I fix this please?


some computers will fade the screen automatically when on battery power. on windows systems, you can change those settings (normally) by going to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Power Options -> Edit Plan Settings (beside the option in use) -> change advanced power settings -> Display (see screen shot)

Acer aspire 5738 screen fade


From your description, you may either have a bad cable to the LCD on your laptop or the LCD screen itself is going bad. I would guess a repair shop may charge $100-200 for the parts and labor, but you'll have to check your local area for price estimates.

Since your computer is nearly 3 years old, you may want to consider purchasing a new computer, especially since they start at $300-500 brand new.

How to fix dead pixels


Cheaper to throw away instead of trying to fix, if green is fading the rest will soon follow, I gather it must be near 4 or 5 years old as this seems to be the life span, sorry I have no solution as even dead pixel fixers will not restore lifeless colour, this is usually worn out caps and backlight.

LabelWriter labels are sensitive to sunlight. The coating is what allows to burn text onto them because LabelWriters do not use ink.

They are not supposed to fade easily so it may have been an old roll. Please contact our help desk for a resolution (see dymo.com for contacts).

Well if they would not replace your keyboard then I may suggest you buy a stencil lettering that you scratch. You can purchase this on school supply outlets. It has many sizes and fonts. After choosing the type of stencil, scratch it to your keyboard and top it with a clear nail polish gloss so that it would not fade whenever you're typing.

Won't print but few lines til black fades out


It pretty much sounds to me like you have "outdated" or old cartridges. Are you using the photo setting to print photos? Before you purchase more expensive cartridges do a head cleaning! Good luck.

Some letters on monitor are fading out


Some letters on monitor are fading out if there is no problem with card then it is due to monitor high voltage section failure. 1 there should be proper output from power supply. 2 focus control on flyback to be set. 3 crt base loose 4 or focus wire going to crt base not properly connected due to some foreign material deposited on it. 5 at last if monitor is old there is a possibility of crt getting weak.
