Question about LG Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Some of the text on my screen is so faint that I have to strain to read it. Is this a problem with brightness and/or contrast? And how do I fix it? My monitor came without any manual, and so I have no idea how to make adjustments.

    Thanks for your response!!

    Before we proceed, you could download the manual from :-

    Click on Manuals and Documents and then download and save the manual. You need to have acrobat reader to view the file.

    Read the manual and set the settings. If problem still remain - It would confirm a hardware or software ( known as firmware or monitor driver's problem ). Then we could troubleshoot further.

    Good Luck!!

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.

On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.

Screen went black faint images

If the screen went black and you can still see faint images of what your computer is currently showing, the typical issue would be a burnt out backlight. For the repair cost, I'd say just invest in a new monitor.
Just to cover the bases, make sure your brightness and contrast settings on the LCD are not set to zero.

Screen icons are almost invisible from directly in front but visible if looked at from angle mouse too faint to see clearly although very faintly visible

while you have not given much detailed information I agree with the answers pointing to the inverter or backlight "bulb" issue.

However, having come across a few exotic variations* on the theme, do you have a utility app where you can set the screen brightness, contrast gamma ?
Some graphic card control software like Intel allows you to color balance the screen and to set the gamma, contrast or brightness range. getting these settings way out of normal range can lead to the phenomenon that you can not see the icons when looking directly at it but if you look sideways at an angle you can see them!

let me know!

*A client once had set the font color to the same like the background color and called me up in desperation claiming his computer is broke there is no text on the display anymore....
Indeed there was no text of any menu visible just blank until I quickly figured out what he did!

I am having issues with my monitor. My computer monitor on my desktop has gone almost completely black. I can make out a faint outline of the setting when they are brought up that allows me to vaguely read...

i think the picture tube of your monitor has some problem. go to a nearby vendor and replace it and also first make sure your adjustments of color and brightness are fine.

About text sharpness

The monitor shouldn't be changing the settings itself unless you changed it. Try changing the brightness and contrast. Otherwise, it might be a video card issue.

Pfaff 7570 display screen info is very faint & difficult to read

Hi Carolyn,

Look for a small turning wheel, just below the green and pink selection knobs, on the front right of your machine. Turn it anticlock wise for a darker image and clockwise for a lighter image. Enjoy!

White screen when taking pictures in daylight

Go to the menu screen for LCD contrast and adjust, it sounds like it is to high. Kinda like a back light for a plasma screen.

Screen Image too light to read

Try tapping the power key while the unit is on.  This may activate a control for contrast and brightness.  Otherwise it's in the settings screen.  Try looking at the screen in bright sunlight it may be make the screen visible enought to see the settings.
