Question about E-Machines eMachines Monitor E15T4

My monitor has gotten really dark. How to fix?

My monitor has gotten very dark. It was fine until one day I turned it on and suddenly it was not as bright as it usually was. I have it tilted down as far as possible so I can see what's on the screen. I have tried adjusting the brightness and contrast, wiggling the wires, unplugging the monitor and leaving the computer off for a few days. Nothing has helped. Can this be fixed or do I need a new monitor? It is about 6 years old. Thanks.

Try another monitor on your computer. If the other monitor works fine, then you know the video card is good and the monitor is definitely bad.

If the monitor is the culprit then the only option is to replace it because that would mean the screen itself is going bad and there is no replacement screen for that monitor.

Step 1: Attach LCD screen to another known-working computer (keep in mind to plug into a reliable powerstrip). Check to see if the process can be repeated. If not, then check your computer settings (Power management, etc.). If the issue can be duplicated, then..you, my friend, are experiencing an inverter failure. OK. Moving on. Buy and inverter and replace it. Not a good option for you? Might as well get a new unit. You missed several Black Friday deals but hey, some are still on sale tomorrow.

My brightness control does not work just turned on and can not hardly see anything it is up and running what now


Have you tested it with an external monitor?

I would say you either have a damaged inverter board or screen baclight lamp. Usually the inverter board fails in one of the following ways:

1. When you turn on the laptop, the screen lights up for a short period of time and then goes dark. You still can see an image but it is very dark, almost invisible and definitely not usable. When you restart the laptop, the screen lights up and then goes dark again. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
2. Your laptop turns on but the screen remains dark all the time. You still can see a very dim image outline. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
3. The laptop screen works fine for hours or even days, but sometimes it goes very dark as it mentioned above. When you restart the laptop, the screen works fine again.

Inverter failure symptoms are very similar to backlight lamp failure symptoms and in most cases you cannot tell which one is causing the problem until you replace either the inverter board or the backlight lamp. From my personal experience, inverter boards fail more often than backlight lamps. If you have to guess, replace the inverter first.

Try resetting the monitor to default settings by getting your manual out. It will guide you through the process. If that does'nt work then check for any updated drivers.

I had the same problem. I contact the manufactuer and they refused to fix it. They said it would cost an additional $100 to have it fixed. I have not even had it a year. I thought products sold in America were suppose to last longer than a year? What has happened to companies standing behind there products. Beware of this monitor!!! DO NOT BUY IT!!! LT1919WDB

Not really. Repairs are right about $150 - $250. Resistor Kit, Caps., maybe other parts, and labor charges.

welcome to fixya

it sounds like the back light on both monitors are going bad
it might be better to call a repair man and get him to look at it see if it is going to be worth fixing i think it might be better then buying a new one at the prices now days

i hope this helps out have a nice day:)
