My samsung lcd monitor have a dim light.. i cant see most of pictures or any thing that has a dark part on it... like pictures, videos


It is possible that the monitor settings have changed. There should be a menu or settings button on the monitor. Try to increase brightness and decrease contrast.
Unfortunately, it is much more likely that your monitor is failing and needs to be serviced or replaced. Given the price of monitors replacement is probably the least expensive solution.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

My acer X193w+ screen turns pink. What is causing


laurie515, Gee, I hope it's a 'pretty pink' colour. Do you really mean that What was once WHITE or VERY Lite GRAY is now appearing pink??? Laurie515 you must tell us more. How old is this unit? 4-6 yrs? I suspect that the "Cold-Cathode-Fluorescent-Tubes" that are hanging on the rear of the LCD glass panel and provide white light, have over time, now become tired out. YOU WILL NOT FIX IT!! IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE. Here are some options. 1. Trade in for new if yours is >4yrs old. 2. Check for swapout program with ACER? This is only a dim Maybe thing. You send them yours +$50-$100 and they return a refurbished unit. 3. Find local TV/Monitor Repair shop that knows all about LCD monitor repair. there are also guys on fixya that do LCD refurbishing (new ccf tubes/inverter/smps) Do some web searches on LCD monitor failures and also visit youtube for vid clips of monitor disassembly if you want to see the insides of a typical LCD monitor.
Bye for now. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com

Screen is dim barely can see desktop in background


Usually this is a problem with the backlight, or inverter. Most of the time the inverter is the problem which is a pretty cheap fix. If its the backlight, then you will have to replace the lcd, which is much more expensive.

Normally this is caused by the power inverter for the lcd2.gif. It is a small circuit board right below the lcd, that powers the backlight. If you take off the front bezel of the laptop you should be able to see it, it will have a 2 wire power cord coming out the one end, and another plug in2.gif on the other end with several wires.

Check ebay for a replacment but make sure you get an identical model as the one you have, as they are very specific to each laptop. The inverter will have the part number written on it.

Vg2230wm monitor Will not power on


probably your power supply. Is it a cord direct from plug in for is there a box between where you plug it in and then a small round end that goes into the monitor. This would be the good news. If it plugs in direct then that means the power sopply is in the monitor itself which means more expensive to fix

Computer Monitor is dim


mzsouthpole9, Yes, this sounds exactly like a SWITCH-MODE-POWER-SUPPLY problem, and/or INVERTER circuit problem. I have lucked out and repaired 3 lcd/fpd monitors with very similar/same complaint. Now here is what you are dealing with. Have you seen the new energy saving 'curlie-Q' screw-in Compact-Fluorescent light bulbs? Your lcd monitor needs white light to light-up all the pretty colors in the LCD panel. You are lucky. The SMPS in your unit is at least for now, supplying voltage to the digital processor board in your monitor. That's y u see an image on the screen. Because your Cold-Cathode-Fluorescent tubes (2ea) are not lighting-up, you now see what you see. this most likely is a SMPS failing to source voltage to the Inverter circuit which takes 12-20v dc and changes it to 800-1500v ac to light the thin, straight, horizontal (left to right) CCF TUBES. Here are your options as a consumer. Call viewsonic, see if they have a swapout program. You send them your's+$50-$90, and they send you a refurbished same model in return. Or try to find local TV/Monitor repair shop that knows forwards and backwards everything about CCF tubes and SMPS/INVERTER repair. Last thing is try to repair it yourself. Whatever you decide to do, please drop an email to me. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com. Hope this info was of some help. PS Put LCD/FPD in safe place to prevent damage to the most costly part. the LCD panel!!!!

LCD problems


Try turning the brightness all the way up to 100. That seemed to solve the problem for now. I believe neilneves is right that the power inverter is not supplying enough power, but in my case at least, by increasing the brightness the LCD is now receiving enough power to not flicker.

Proview PL926Wbi LCD Monitor White Screen


I found in the refuse, a Gateway FPD 1520, 15" LCD monitor that started off losing the screen half-way, losing sync, etc. The "mechanical agitation" method was applied and remedied the problem. Awhile ago, it went to a white screen (or, as it was back in the day- a clean raster). I opened it up and found that the ribbon cable on the left was loose. I applied a series of layers of adhesive-backed foam (the kind you stop drafts in your home with) until it was greater than the height of the metal enclosure to put pressure on the unbehaving connector. It does seem a bit loose and this will keep it snug. Maybe hot glue or other adhesive if it wiggles loose again. Seems to have solved the problem at the moment.
