Often dropping the unit will break the LCD screen, and it will have to be replaced. Dropping the unit shouldn't reset anything, but will break the LCD. You would probably be better off buying another one, although you could check on Ebay for a replacement screen. They are replaceable, and you can try it yourself if you can get the replacement. The manufacturers don't supply these parts it seems- at least I can't find any on the net.
You might check with Magellan support, and here's their site:

How do I set screen brightness on HP envy 23.


Hi!

Usually, there should be buttons on your keyboard that you can use to adjust that run across the top. Sometimes, you need to hold the "Fn" button in addition to pushing these up and down buttons to adjust the brightness. Usually, they have little pictures of a sun (one dark, one white).

You can find the user manual for your PC here, on HP's website:

The picture frame still scrolls pictures but the pictures are very dark and unable to be seen well. Is the frame ruined?


Hi, Don't put screen in direct sun light or bright light. Bright lights will destroy LCD screen. The LCD screen has some adjustments on back. You might be able to readjust picture brightness.
Good luck.

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.

The screen is too dark to read


See if there is a contrast adjustment somewhere on the laptop first, if not then its a possibility your back light has gone and needs replacing.

While using my gps 12, the screen suddenly went dark with just a narrow border of lit screen. batteries good. I can faintly see the pages behind the dark screen.


it turns out I inadvertently adjusted the screen contrast. This is adjusted by holding the left arrow key down after powering up, until the contrast is corrected. If the screen was completely white, holding the right arrow key down after powering up would bring contrast back into balance.

Gestetner DSm618d accidentally adjusted display too dark, now can't read it, so I can't control the machine, nor can I readjust ''contrast'' Vince


No matter how dark the contrast, if the room is dark you will be able to read it well enough to get to the settings -that is unless the display is burned out altogether

The screen went dark on jmv 111


Dark as in gone or dark as in the image is still viewable?  How does the onscreen menu look when the image is dark/gone?  If the onscreen menu looks right and the image is still dark, you might want to check the cables or another input.  If another device using different cables and another input looks fine, you may only have a problem with the input/cable you are using to view the movie.  If the onscreen menu is also dark, then I would think there is an internal problem that needs looking into.

A dark screen might be the result of a poorly adjusted display contrast. This can be altered by accessing the Setup menu and selecting Display.

The LCD screen is hard to see. What should I do?


If the LCD screen is too bright or too dark, adjust the LCD Brightness setting in the Setup Menu. If you are shooting photos outdoors in bright light, move the joystick to the icon showing the sun over shaowed area to turn on Outdoor mode and make the LCD screen easier to see in bright light.
