    Hello. Did the screen start "pinking" when turned on before this happened? The symptom you're describing is most likely from dying fluorescent tubes concealed behind the edges of the monitor screen. They provide the bright and vivid colors and the backlighting. Is the monitor under any kind of warranty? Sometimes you can find a facility that repairs the displays but, usually, the cost of fixing them is competitive with the cost of a brand new unit.(I have the same problem with my daughter's laptop) If the picture is still being displayed on the screen but it appears black or extremely dark, either the tubes or the power supply that feeds them is going bad.
    The repair is involved so keep "monitor replacement" in the back of your mind. Hope I helped you.---Rick

    p.s. If the screen is black, you can check to see if the image is indeed there by using a bright flashlight close-up.

Dull laptop screen back light


You may have a faulty CCFL lamp. A faulty CCFL lamp may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering and/or with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight or a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. Usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Delll axim x30 screen remains dimmed even though fully charged


ok , you have checked the brightness settings, check battery power settings as well. you may have to do a hard reset so back up your info. If doing a hard reset, pull the battery and charge it on its own if you have a cradle. Hope this works for you
