Try adjusting your contrast. Sometimes a full blown contrast setting will blacken the screen. If that doesnt tech support of the company that manufactured the laptop.

I have a Lenovo and the screen went dark after i hit the f12 brighten key. Neither the lighten or darken keys work? whats the problem?

It sounds like the screen inverter went out, it needs to be replaced. Take it to a local computer store, not a big corporate store, they will charge you way too much.

Brighten laptop screen

  • 1 Locate the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard. It may be on the bottom left side with dark blue letters.
  • 2 Locate the two "brightness" keys near the top of the keyboard. These will be in the "F" keys, possibly if F5 and F7. They should have little sun pictures or something similar to indicate brightness.

    How do I brighten the monitor on my lenovo T61?

    I believe the T61 is like my T60.
    The "Home" and "End" keys will act to brighten or dim the screen when you hit them as you hold down the "Ctrl" key.

    My laptop is very dark and holding fn and the sun

    The Back-light on your LCD screen is bad, your crystals aren't illuminating, so it is dark.... very dark.

    You need a new LCD screen.

    Screen is too dimm to see at all

    Go to Control DISPLAY...and you should either find a adjustment there to brighten your screen. Or look On the "F-Series" keys or somewhere on your keyboard for a Brighten SUN or dark SUN, which you have to press the blue key along with that F series key to brighten or darken the laptop. Good luck

    Dark screen

    If you are unable to change the contrast with the 'fn' key and the brightness controls, usually represented in the top row of keys as a sun icons, one brightens, one dims. You may have a bad brightness/contrast inverter in your display. It's a small circuit board in the display that controls the brightness. They do fail. You can find them for most models but depending on your technical ability, they can be a little tricky to change.
