There is a key on the keyboard which controls brightness. on mine it is the second key on the right, of the bottom row. it has a small sun on it. Press this key at the same time as the function key (on mine, bottom row, second from the left, blue key marked Fn) - and the monitor will brighten up.

This may or may not be applicable to the originally stated problem, but my monitor went dim after a momentary (< 2 seconds) power failure. I went into the monitor's menu, through the buttons on the front panel, and found that "Brightness" was set at 192 out of 100. Once I adjusted it, it would only range 0 - 100, as it should, but the brightest setting was still just as dim. Selecting the default settings didn't help either. Fumbling for other possibilities, I went in the menu into "Image Properties", from there into "Color", from there into "Custom", from there into "Red" (and later "Green" and "Blue"), and as soon as I started to adjust the Red balance, the monitor jumped up to full brightness. It seems that the monitor's built-in software becomes discombobulated. Afterward, the correct color balance settings were very different from before, so the basic problem seems to defy rational explanation, but maybe seemingly random fiddling will shock it back to normality.

Its could be either your inverter circuit board is about to go dead or your back lamps inside your LCD screen are going bad. Now back lamps are light bulb inside your LCD screen depending on how many hour you have on your monitor is less likely that your back lamps are going bad. Back lamp suppose to last I think about 10,000 hour or more.Try resetting your monitor.

Dull display on the monitor


Hi friend, In this case I would like you to please try and connect any other monitor to the system and check if you have the same dull screen in the other one.
If it has the dull display too then I would recommend you to please update the video drivers for the system.
If the display is fie on the other one, then I believe the life of the CRT tube of the monitor has ended and there is a need to buy a new monitor

HP F1703 Screen goes black within seconds of startup


That is either the backlight or its power supply.

This is a bit tricky as you can get it fixed under warrenty but they will likely ask you to send back the entire computer not just the monitor. It is also something that you could fix or several shops could but the repair cost really isn't much less than a new monitor. You are not stuck using an HP monitor so anything will work and you can get quite a lot bigger or better for about $120 and up. Repair cost is going to be $80-$100 so as you can see for just a few dollars more you have a new warrentied monitor.

Monitor display on Dell E176FP


You may loose connections at the end of the VGA cable, or video card not seated tightly. I would check that first.

Any tips on openong the 917s case?


Front and back of most LCDs shap together. Must be gently pryed apart.
Some KDS LCDs that have screws on the edge need to slide the front cover up a half inch to release from the back cover.

Dell 1901FP monitor


It is probably either a CCFL back light issue inside the LCD or a set of capacitors on the inverter/power supply board.
Would you be willing to part with it ?
