If this is a Toshiba, go into the BIOS when booting the laptop and see if you can adjust it there. You may also want to check the Power settings in the Control Panel. If that doesn't work, you need to take it to a warranty repair shop and they will need to update a code that only they have access to. This is usually free.

Iphone dim display , phone works fine otherwise

Hi, did the phone fall on the flow or hit something? If yes, that might have been the cause of the dim display. Cause the screen has been affected and you will need to replace the screen.

After dim display, if the phone blinks or show some funny moving display, that means is the flex that connects the front screen board to the main board of the phone that is faulty and it will need to be replaced.

Take care.

Dim display on laptop LCD screen

The part you need is called a CCFL Backlight. Basically, there are lights in the screen that back-light/illuminate the display. Over time it burns out and you are left with a dim and completely dull display. These are a pain to replace and expensive when bought from the manufacturer. But this site has a break down with dis-assembly instructions...if you want to try it.

Dim Screen on the 2001 Toyota Prius

Yes the screen dims automatically when the lights are on to suit night driving. I am not specifically familiar with the 01 model, however on my 08 model, the display brightness is also manually adjustable via a button located below and to the right of the display. The button is marked with a series of short lines assembled in an arc. Hope this helps.

Sounds like your inverter or your backlight is failing.

I Have a Compaq V3000 Laptops. The display is very dim. HELP!!

It miight be the backlight for this unit. It all depends on whether the screen came with the backlight. There is a remote chance that the display circuitry on the motherboard is faulty too. Try to plug a monitor into the VGA port and check to see if it is dim there too.
