If you have tried all the usual adjustments (brightness etc), then the inverter board or the backlight itself is bad.

It's pretty hard to tell which one it could be, given as they are both related (the inverter board powers the backlight)

I had that happen to a few 192N's, and it was a bad inverter board in both cases.

When the monitor starts up you should be able to see the Samsung screen logo, if not it does point to the monitor. But lets be sure! hook a spare monitor to the computer, if it is okay! the Samsung Monitor is the problem and is not cost effective to repair, cheaper to replace. Now if both screens show the same problem, this indicates the Video Graphics Card in the computer is the culprit.

Dim display in samsung monitor


When the LCD monitor display is dim or flickers and or has a black screen then the fault is usually a faulty inverter or the CCFL lamp. When you look at the screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim image then it is a backlight problem and it is caused by a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp.

I too have the same problem with the same monitor.. tv looks great OSD looks great.. pc is dim.. This has nothing to do with the inverter board or the backlight.. I believe that there is an issue with the components that render the Computer video.
