Re: Displays too dark..

Take the bottom stand off, pop the back off usually 4 screws. look for a big pink wire running down fron the picture tube...follow it the big part on the pc board it is most like a black big component on your right closes to the back cover. ok this part is the x-transformer there are little screws you can turn but might be sealed in glue like polish. dont touch the the top screws for they the focus but turn the very bottom screw, closest to the circuit board, with a screwdriver clockwise braking the seal....just alittle 1/8 turn ...if u see white lines u went to far. I do this with a mirror and hook the pc to it and plug the monitor up just keep one hand away and you wont get a shock too bad if you clumsy. I turn the screen control clockwise until i just see the white lines or black background lightens to gray..then back counterclockwise till the gray is black and stop its perfect now...and u should see a alot brighter screen. adjusting the focus if needed turn the control back and forth untill see clear letters in small text. its tricky if u more than focus control u must turn them both then and concentrate on the center screen small text. if u didnt understand anything I said dont fool with it and take to a tv shop.

Monitor: Offset display

This is caused by sending a video signal to the screen at a refresh rate higher than 60hz. A LCD Doesn't refresh the image by scanning from top to bottom like a traditional CRT or picture tube. They are hard set to 60hz and can not understand anything else. Setting it to anything else will cause it to not display a video signal, picture tearing (little blocks with horizontal movement), Offset video or convergents issues (colors appear offset giving it the 3d movie look with out glasses on)

To fix it you need to go into your operating systems display settings and pick out a LCD monitor with a refresh rate of 60hz

Hope that helps

Samsung SyncMaster 17" LCD Blacks out

If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...

My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.
