This unfortunately sounds like what happened to my Sony all in One windows 7 desktop computer. It crashed 3 months after purchase, and screen neither goes light or dark now. Hate the though of having to buy an new one.

Assuming all of the connections are secure this is most likely due to a failing LCD inverter which is basically the backlight of the screen. If it's less than a year old cash in on the manufacturer's warranty. If it's not you might as well buy a new one. Hope this helps.

The screen is really dark


Locate the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard. It may be on the bottom left side with dark blue letters. Locate the two "brightness" keys near the top of the keyboard. These will be in the "F" keys, possibly if F6 and F7. They should have little sun pictures or something similar to indicate brightness. Hold down the Fn key while pressing F7, or whichever "F" key your laptop uses to increase brightness. Tap F7 repeatedly until you reach the desired brightness. Fn must be held down as you continue to tap. Hope this helps.

How brighten the screen?


Look on your keyboard on the "f" keys (f1, f2, etc...) for a symbol that looks like a sun or shining light. Something that would indicate brightness. Now, hold down the 'fn' (function) key on the bottom left of your keyboard and then press the backlight key you just found.

My Dell Inspiron 6400 is extremely dark. +brightness does nothing


Hi there.
Yes, if you can see a very faint image on the screen that indicates that the inverter or inverter coil has become defective and needs looking at or replacing.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

LCD Display flickers,then goes dark on bootup


Sounds like your display inverter has gone bad. You should be able to find an inverter for this model or if the computer is still under warranty I would find an authorized repair center for this brand of computer.

Dark screen


if the picture is REALLY dark, like you can just barely see it in a lit room, then the backlight might not be lit. LCD TVshave backlight that shines through the LCD screen which allows you to see the picture.

If it's not the backlight then it would be the brightness/contrast settings that need to be adjusted. If the picture used to be normal and all of a sudden went dark, verify the backlight. Normally you can look through the slots on the top of the set and determine if the backlight is on. If you can see a bright light through any of the slots, the backlight is probably OK... go after the brightness/contrast settings.

Mac laptop displays minimum brightness


Check to see if there is a box right below that... Saying something along the lines of readjust to brightness of surroundings, etc!  Make sure box is unchecked for you, in regrds to your issue and then see if that helps!  I will look a little further into it for you!  Let me know if that helps though!

PS2 Picture Problem


Hi MG86,

Most PS2 games are dark and auto brightness controls will casue your LCD tv to brighten up automatically in response the dark video coming from PS2 games. I suggest you get into the menu settings of your TV and find a setting that will shut off the auto picture controls.
