1. Unplug your computer and remove the battery.
2. Press the power button several times.
3. Reattach the battery, plug in the computer, and press the power button.
4. If the problem persists, look closely at the screen. If you can make out faint, dim images, the backlighting components must be replaced or repaired. If not, it is likely another issue with the physical hardware of the machine such as the screen or the motherboard.

Dim display on laptop LCD screen


The part you need is called a CCFL Backlight. Basically, there are lights in the screen that back-light/illuminate the display. Over time it burns out and you are left with a dim and completely dull display. These are a pain to replace and expensive when bought from the manufacturer. But this site has a break down with dis-assembly instructions...if you want to try it.

If you plug the charger into the computer without the battery and the laptop runs fine, then I would suggest to you that your battery is failing and will no longer accept the charge. On the other hand if the laptop will not stay running or acts strage and the screen dims and gets bright, then I would suggest to you that the charger's built in voltage regulator is failing and will damage the laptop if it continued to be used. A bad charger will also permenently destroy the battery condition.

Monitor is dim


Sounds like your inverter is failing. The inverter takes the dc power from the battery and charger and converts to high voltage AC current for the backlight lamp inside the screen. When the inverter starts to fail, the display will sometimes blink, dim out over time, flash just get dark and stay that way.

My laptop won't turn on


a copoment inside the laptop might be broken. go to where you bought it from and ask them for a new one or to repair it. this is only if it comes with a guarantee though. or just ditch it and buy a new one. never try to open or repair it yourself though the electral shock could kill you even when it is off.

Won't start without charger on battery.


when you charge the battery make sure that its cable is is loosen from the motor coz it can damage your charging system. on your case you have damage it already that's your light dims whenever you rev the rpm up. so change your voltage regulator of your charging system, charge the battery and it is done easy.

Lgvx9400 screen turns black


I had the same problem. Went and bought a new battery.
Replaced it and let it charged without turning it off.
4 days now and I have not see the black screen yet.
Before it was happening almost everytime I wanted to use my phone.
At least once a hour I would have to shutdown and pull the battery.
