Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the up-arrow key until the screen darkens to your liking.

If you go too far, then press and release 2ND, then press and hold down-arrow.

    Right. So the process I described didn't increase the contrast, making the text darker?

  • powerful153l Sep 30, 2010

    it did, but when i clicked on prgm, I can barely read the words, it 's only parts of the word, like blurred

  • powerful153l Sep 30, 2010

    the text didn't get darker. only the background did.

  • kakima Sep 30, 2010

    And this is happening only on some lines, not all?

    What kind of batteries are you using? If you're using rechargables, can you try a set of alkalines to see whether the higher voltage makes any difference?

Our holden ss vf commodore computer screen keeps fading

The car is still covered by new car warranty so take it back to the dealer and have them address it again or go to another dealer of your choice if not satisfied with their service. It sounds like a hardware fault and if they cannot find the problem you should insist on them replacing the system unit under warranty. If they will not fix the issue, take it up with Holden customer service in writing with all details of your reports and the dealer's inabilty to fix the problem. Be politely persistent and don't let them fob you off because these systems are expensive and if you have fading you cannot properly operate all the functions they have running through it.

Getting faded writing although new tone inserted.

This is a common problem with this printer. The developer blade in the imaging unit has toner build up. It can be fixed by replacing the imaging unit with a new one for $100+. Or you can clean it yourself using common household tools. I have a detailed instructions showing you how to do this Hope this helps you.

My monitors colors are fading cant read any white writing, not the first time this has happened, it will fix it self to perfect color then all of a suden lose reds and oranges, and fade colors

This is highly likely that a capacitor in the power supply is failing, a lot of people are having problems with them going bad. Samsung, reportedly, will fix it for $545 or thereabouts, but people are replacing the 4 1000uf caps in the power supply themselves, for $30. I've never done it myself, but they say after you get the back off, they're on the power supply board in the middle. Some people have replaced the whole board for $100 when they can get the boards, apparantly some are on backorder. The problem, of course, could be in other parts of the tv's circuits, but this seems to be a prevalent problem with Samsung. Hope this helps.

Problem with printing in black writing not clear and very faded.

It sounds like you need to run a printhead cleaning. The print head is what you put the ink cartridges into, it's responsible for placing ink directly to the page. If the some of the nozzles are clogged up, it can give you bad print quality. Without knowing the exact model of your printer, I can't tell you exactly where to find the menus needed to run the cleaning. Sometimes you can do this via the "maintenance" tab in the printers properties. If you need any further assistance, feel free to let me know.
