    Thanks for your help... its probably helpful if I had included a bit more information. The screen dims when I view a dark website, or if I have a lot of black on the screen. Once I move away from the dark site, or reduce the window so there is more white showing, then the dimming stops...
    I have reset factory default and it's still happening...
    Cheers

There is a small row of buttons on the bottom right of the front panel of the monitor. From these buttons it's possible to adjust: Gamma correction, Brightness, Color balance, H/V position, Color temperature, and Contrast. By pushing the menu button your choices should be diplayed on screen. If there is a choice of "factory default" try that and it will take all adjustments back to as they were when it was set up when new. You won't find buttons to match the adjustments I mentioned above. There may be just 3 buttons but by way of the on screen menu they are enough to acheive what you want.

From past experience I'd say it's possible someone has been playing around with the buttons and upset it's settings.

If you continue to have problems I can download the manual and guide you from there.

    I'm beginning to think perhaps you have a power supply problem. I assume you tried to adjust Contrast and Brightness as well. If this didn't solve the dimming I would be taking the monitor along to a qualified service tech who has plenty of experience with LCD monitors. I didn't realise the dimming varied with what was being displayed on the screen. With the older CRT monitors the symptoms would be a shrinking of the picture depending on screen content. With the LCD it's a different system completely and dimming could be the CRT equivalent. Even the buzzing could point towards the power supply as well. A shame too, what you have is a very nice monitor and well respected as a good reliable unit with excellent picture quality.



    I always try for the easy customer fixit routines first. I don't jump in and say " take it to a repair shop" first up. But I'm afraid in this instance it would be the best choice if the brightness and contrast don't have any effect. Tell me, are there any focus problems as well? I ask that purely for personal knowledge reasons.

    Thanks Michelle I sincerely hope you get better soon and leave all those nasty problems behind you.

Why is my heated auto dimming driver side and rear view mirror getting dark when driving


Look in the fuse box for the fuse it will likely have other things on it but nothing to high voltage .
Pull the fuse and see what happens .
Honestly I have never heard of this .
Unless the mirrors lit or damaged somehow from to much heat damaging the coating on the back of the glass making it not a mirror any more .
This sounds like a factory defect

Why does my screen go dark when I am making a call


It should go dark when you put throne up to your face. That keeps it from getting to warm on your face. If you don't want it to go dark, you can turn the auto dim off in settings under display. It will use more battery, but it shouldn't go dim. Then that may be under another setting.

Monitor dims when we turn lights off in room.


You need to give a more detailed description of the problem.
The LG 47LH90 is an LED backlit TV with 'local dimming' technology. This means that there are lots of white LEDs behind the screen and these can be controlled in groups to allow localised areas of the screen to be dimmed to produce better contrast between light and dark. It is very likely that when the room is dark, this local dimming is more noticeable. The actual individual LEDs cannot be controlled and so the area that is dimmed will generally be greater than the area that is required to be dark 'blooming effect'. In addition, LED backlit displays only maintain their contrast through a tight viewing angle. If you sit too farto the right or left, then light from non-dimmed LEDs will leak through and the screen will look lighter.
In short, there may not be any fault with your TV.

Tv went grayscreen, flickering. turned off, then


When you had gray screen and flickering you had only one problem - color wheel. After "putting everything together" you have totally different problem, caused by multiple possibilities like: forgotten connectors, cut/jammed cables/wires, lamp not being inserted properly, lamp door not being set properly, disconnected color wheel, etc. Try to open rear cover and redo what you have done. Remove optical block, check everything visually and slowly put everything back. If still no luck - then only skilled TV repairman may (or may not) help.

The screen on my Compaq Evo N610c is dim


You could have a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp, To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering 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 replacing the CCFL lamp.
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 and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
