Levette,
The "-" switch could be dirty, stuck, or shorted out. You may want to press and release that button to see if it will release, and/or if the button has an opening around it (not sealed as in a touch panel type controls), you may spray an electronic grade (non conductive, non residual, non petroleum based) contact cleaner into that area while actuating the switch as the contacts within the switch could be dirty.
Good luck.

HOW TO SET BRIGHTNESS OF THE SCREEN?


Hi,

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.


On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.



Thanks....

Don't know how to decrease the brightness. It's straining my eyes. When I push the front bottom Menu button, a rectangle appears with the word Brightness, but I can't find how to decrease it.


Here is a manual for a Daewoo Monitor. On page 3 it indicates that there are buttons that show a right and left arrow above it. When you have the brightness menu highlighted press the left arrow button to decrease the brightness.

Screen too bright, have just got monitor from e-bay and there are no instructions on use.


Check all the buttons near the ON/OFF button.

One of the buttons will activate the OSD (On Screen Display).

The OSD controls everything about the monitor, including BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST. Use the other buttons to move between menu-items, and to "select" one of the sub-menus, and to raise/lower settings, and to "exit" from a sub-menu to the main-menu.
