If you try already adjust the brightness and contract and still not working. Try this, open the cover of your monitor but make it sure that the power is unplug. In the back of monitor board look for the plyback. It is usually black color with some wire connected here from the monitor yoke and picture tube. At the body of the plyback there is two adjustment holes . the upper hole is for the screen control and the lower is for the focus. You can adjust the screen monitor brightness by use of sharp thing or flat screw driver. Open the computer and monitor then slowly rotate the screen adjustment look for the desire brightness. But make it sure that you don't touch some parts of monitor to avoid electric shock. If your screen display blurred try to adjust also the focus do it with care.

Can you be more specific ?
The first step is to isolate the system at fault:
1) Monitor hardware ?
Test it on another PC or
Try a different monitor on the same PC
Check monitor adjustments.
Check the video cable, try another one.

2) What kind of a monitor is it?
CRT (like and old TV) or an LCD flat screen

3) Video card problem, possible but not as likely

4) Video driver or operating software settings issue
wrong video mode, video settings the monitor can't handle,
incorrect device driver

lots of possibilities here.

At start up my viewsonic va1912wb display blinks several times then i can see the picture but it is dark almost unreadable. Today it went darker than yesterday. HELP!


If it is dark due to brightness adjustment, get that adjusted. Usually when you adjust the brightness by pressing the menu button, the menu screen would not be dark. If everything is dark dark dark and you can only see some display but in very pitch darkness, then your monitor is a goner, backlit for the monitor is dead, and your monitor will need to be replaced. You can fix the backlit tubing, however it is risky, and expensive, and would cost less if you bought a replacement.

How do i brighten mytouch screen it looks dull gray? the light use to be brighter in the background know it seems to look dingy and graish not bright it looks ike a lightbulb went out and it makes it...


The dark screen with faint, hard to see display is due to the failure of (i) CCFL (Cold Cathode Florecent Lamp) OR LED, which is the back light or the (ii) Inverter board, which provides high voltage to the CCFL. So, it is recommended that you get it properly checked by any professional for replacement of CCFL/LED.

Also, refer here to my earlier solution to a similar problem, which was rated as very helpful

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

Take a bright light and shine it on the screen when it is on. Can you barely see any display, but really dark? If so, the lamp or the lamp inverter has failed (some laptops use LEDs instead of CCFL lamps and has no inverter either).

Just hooking up to another display doesn't necessary tell you anything if it doesn't show anything. As sometimes you have to change a settings in the BIOS, use the Fn key plus another key that looks like a monitor, or change it through a display menu on the screen.

This is because your screen is not compatible with any resoultion past 1280 x 1024. Look at your screen's specifications here: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200602/20060210090838125_BN59-00521A-01Eng.pdf (Page 76 listed as Maximum resolution)

If you want to go past that, you must purchase and/or use a different monitor. Just be sure to look at the Maximum Resolutions BEFORE you purchase a new monitor!

Whenever i turn my acer on the screen doesnt show up and i know it is on, one time i started to be able to see the screen dimly but the contrast wouldnt turn up! please help


Try shining a flashlight or a lamp on the screen and see if you can faintly see the Windows desktop in the background. If you can then the problem is the backlight. Laptop screens have a light that shines from behind the screen and lets you see the display. If this is a laptop computer it will need to go in for service. If this is a monitor for a desktop computer you can try turning it on and off a few times, or leave it unplugged for a few hours and try it again but failing that it also needs service.

Press F8 during startup to show the boot options. Boot to VGA mode (if available) or safe mode and change your resolution in windows to the recommended 1280X1080. To do this in XP just right click on the desktop and select 'properties', click on the right-most tab and move the slider.

In Vista this would be right-click desktop, select 'personalise', click 'display settings' and move slider.

Hope this helps,

erch.

Display won't stay visible


If you can see the moving image faintly then it sounds like a problem with the backlight on the screen. Backlights can fail, but usually a cause is an impact of some kind.
