Hold down (Fn) key and press, press, press.... right arrow (----->) the right most key on your keyboard until back light brightens. If you press several time it also goes off. Just press again until brightens.
Okay....I don't know if this will help, but this is one thing I learned about my Pfaff 7550. Sometimes it will look like the screen is lit up but there is no menu or anything and I have found that the "display lucidity control" dial is the problem. If you look just below the buttons that are in a semi-circular shape, you can see a really tiny little dial. It can be easily missed if you don't know where to look. What I have found is that sometimes the screen lights up but there are no words/menu and if you turn the "display lucidity control" dial, the words/menu will appear. As my machine has gotten older, it seems I need to do this more often. The first time it happened to me, I freaked because I thought the display (even though it was lit up) had blanked. THAT was when I discovered that teeny little dial that solved my problem. I don't know if this is your problem, but give it a try and see if works for you like it did for me. And by the way, if you need to see a diagram of the buttons on the Pfaff 7550, here is one. The "display lucidity control" dial is marked #23 http://www.manualowl.com/m/Pfaff/creative-7550/Manual/333556
Below are instructions to adjust brightness on HP laptop
Press the "Fn" key with the computer turned on and hold the key.
Press the "F7" or "F8" key on some HP laptops, which are
printed with a small sun icon on the key. The sun icon is filled on the
function key for dimming the laptop. The other key is printed with a
hollow sun icon for brightening the screen.
Press the "Fn" and left arrow keys together on some HP
laptops to turn down the brightness. The "Fn" and right arrow key will
increase brightness. Press and release the right arrow key repeatedly,
while holding down "Fn," to decrease the screen brightness slowly, or
hold the keys to darken the screen as low as the setting will go.
For HP Monitors
Press and hold the down arrow key on the front panel of the
monitor below the screen to turn down the brightness on the external
monitor to the lowest setting.
Repeatedly press the down arrow button to dim the monitor gradually.
Press the up arrow key on the monitor to increase brightness.
OK, ITS A RELIC CRT MONITOR.

unplug it from the wall
for say 1hr and try again.
lock might happen.
like this, enter the 21 century bold and new, and hope.
Push the button on the front that says menu. Within that menu you will find the brightness control. Use the other buttons to move through the different menu items until you get to Brightness. Once there push the menu button again and then adjust the brightness with the other buttons.
swede32169, Try the buttons on the front or side of the monitor to get to the menu using the + or - to maneuverThu the menu items until you see the "sun" that's for brightness the half filled circle is for contrast that helps too. randy320sgi
Is there still power to the monitor or is the screen just black? Do you hear any sort of sound when it goes black? Does the time the picture goes out vary or does it happen after say "X" minutes/hours everytime?
Do you have any power saving software activated that would cause the monitor blank out?
Check display properties?
Sounds weird but have you checked for any viruses or spyrus nasties?
If its hardware it could be many different things.
Let me know what happens.
