Hi,
On your laptop there is an Fn (function) key and another button showing the image of sun. Keep Fn pressed and then click the "sun" button to increase the brightness of your screen.

SOURCE: Loss of light on screen Dell Inspiron E1705

Hmm, this could be a problem with the backlight inverter or something as simple as power settings.

In power settings from control panel there should be an option to alter the brightness lever of the screen when on battery.

Have a look in there and set it to default to see if it makes any difference.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Regards

Nick

SOURCE: Screen is dark but icons are barley visible.

What you have is an inverter failure most likely. The inverter takes the AC adapter voltage and converts it to high voltage AC for the backlight bulb. Backlight bulbs rarely fail but the inverters do. Ebay has inverters for around 15-20 bucks. The inverter sits under the lcd panel behind the screen bezel. In most cases, removing the bezel is all you need to do to change the inverter out. Below is a link to the service manual for that model.

When you click on the link go to page 4-61, this is the start of the lcd disassembly. I thing just 4 screws need to be removed and then take your finger nails and pry off the bezel in a small area and work your way around the screen until the bezel comes loose. When replacing the bezel always start at the bottom between the hinges and work your way up and around.

Does the fault appear on the laptop screen aswell? It appears by your description that the fault is only on the external monitor. If the screen comes on for a moment and then goes blank as described, then this appears to be an invertor fault. It is very common among laptop and tft screens and requires the invertor inside the panel to be replaced / repaired. Simply plug the screen into another computer to confirm.

Display will not light up. It is completely black but if you shine a light at it you can barely see it


If you can see characters when shining a torch on the dark screen then the screen is OK it is the lamp or ballast that has failed. I would find an authorised repairer and get it repaired.
Hope that helps.

Projector light does not shine. (Power is on, bulb


I will assume from your description that the projector is powered on and you can look in the rear vents and see the lamp illuminated, yet the light does not shine on the screen.
The Ektapro 9020 and most of the Ektagraphic line of projectors are equipped with a "dark shutter". What that does is keep the screen dark unless a slide drops into the gate. At that time the sensing circuits trigger and open the shutter, allowing light through the slide & onto the screen.

Mitsubishi WD-62527. Dark picture.


That unit is a two mirror set. Meaning the light engine lens shines down onto a small mirror and that is reflected onto a large mirror and then onto the screen. Gravity being what it is dust and other contaminants cover the lower mirror. Moving the set would only aggrevate dust settling on it. To fix the problem the screen must be removed and the mirror cleaned. You won't believe the difference. It will be like watching a new tv.

Laptop screen goes dark while loadin windows


If you can see everything when you shine a light on it, it's most likely a 'backlight' going bad. These are somewhat easily repaired, but can be expensive. Good luck!

Shine a torch light onto the screen. If you can see a faint outline of the images, it could indicate a back light failure. Unfortunately, you cannot fix this by yourself. You will need to take it for servicing.
