Screen is dim and I cannot fix it. I used a flashlight to make sure the settings were correct. Autodim is shut off and its set to max brightness. I also tried to use the brightness control button on the top. Nothing works - its stuck on dim. This happened sometime after I turned the alarm off this morning. I notice the date and time were wrong too. I can only see it with a flashlight. It's only 16 months old and well taken care off.

It has a 12 volt lamp in it that illuminates the display screen. It is not a user serviceable part. You will need soldering skills and tools to replace it.

The "inverter" has failed, causing the screen to be very dim.
Is it cheaper to take the monitor to a "TV Repair Shop",
or to buy a brand-new monitor?

Dim screen acer 5100-3019


Try going into power option settings and taking the brightness to the max there. Start, control panel, power options, then you should see a setting for battery and for plugin. Hope this helps.

Dell f700 powers up but screen remains blankno picture at all


If you still can see an faint or very dim image on the screen.
Use a flashlight to see if you can see a dim display on the LCD.
If you cant see anything it isn't worth fixing, If you can then you need to change the inverter. You can get them for around $20.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

i have the same tablet/net-book and also accidentally lowered the brightness past 4/10 of full brightness setting. I couldn't see anything on screen. I found that if i put a bright flashlight to/on the screen, I could see what was on screen, it was dim, but not off. I used this technique to maneuver my way to the settings, display, brightness, and turn up the brightness to where I could see it. I hope this info didn't come too late.

Dim picture


This is the way how to examine where the problem is. If the screen is going dark. You have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
