This mean's your back-light is bad. More specifically probably the backlight LCD inverter. It's the light that brightens up the display so you can see what is on the LCD board.

A new one will cost about $89. And you could find instructions on the internet on how to replace it.

What would cause dark blurred display all modes?


I suspect the monitor is dying. Unless it is under warranty, you may need to replace it, as getting it fixed may cost more than a new one.

ViewSonic VA1926w monitor dims darker when there's dark content on the screen. I have 2 of these monitor connected to a Pro Mac. Only the right side monitor does this.


Its the dynamic contrast ratio (DCR) that dims the display when dark images are displayed.
For my VA1926w, pressing the right most button (up arrow), enables or disables DCR. Keep this disabled.

Dark screen


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.


Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

I have a safety 1st video monitor, model no. 08280. Since yesterday, the hand held parent unit displays a white screen when trying to view the baby. I have unplugged, checked batteries, charged them up...


Good Evening

The light on the camera unit not being illuminated indicate this is where the problem lies.

Ensure that the camera unit is plugged in and press the power button on the camera unit. If the camera unit does not switch on this is what has failed and you require a replacement - please contact your retailer. If the camera unit switches on and the parent unit is unable to establish a connection follow the instructions in the user manual to add a camera.

Display problem


When the screen goes dark shine a flashlight in the lower right hand corner where the Start button typically is located. If you can see faint images then you have a backlight problem. If you don't see anything then try connecting a spare monitor in its place. If that works then you have some other type of problem involving your LCD monitor. In both cases unless you have the experience and tools to safely work on fairly delicate electronics this is not a repair job for the typical consumer.
