Follow these instructions :

  1. Turn on your Samsung monitor (if it isn't already.)

  2. Press the "AUTO" button on your Samsung monitor. This will run the automatic configuration utility. This will look at your current computer settings and adjust your monitor to best match those. This will take a few seconds. If this has calibrated the monitor to meet your needs, you are finished with the process. If it hasn't, continue to Step 3.
  3. Press the "Menu" button on your Samsung computer monitor.
  4. Use the arrows and the "Enter" button on the monitor to highlight and select various settings categories.
  5. Use the "Brightness" menu on your Samsung monitor to adjust how bright or dark you want the image.
  6. Use the "Colors" menu to adjust how prominent certain colors are displayed on your Samsung monitor.
  7. Use the "Contrast" menu to adjust the level of black on your Samsung monitor.
  8. Select "Save and Exit" to save your changes and exit the Samsung monitor's on Screen menu.

HOW TO SET BRIGHTNESS OF THE SCREEN?


Hi,

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.



Thanks....

When using Display Color Calibration on a laptop, set the display to the maximum brightness setting.


Adjusting brightness automatically using adaptive brightness

Adaptive brightness is a feature in Windows that uses a light sensor to automatically adjust the display brightness to match the lighting conditions in your computer's surroundings.


To use adaptive brightness, you must have light sensors installed and enabled on your computer.


To determine if your laptop or computer monitor supports adaptive brightness, look for the Enable adaptive brightness setting in Power Options (mentioned in the following procedure) or check the information that came with your computer.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off

Open Power Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.


Under any plan, click Change plan settings.

Click Change advanced power settings.

In the list, expand Display, and then expand Enable adaptive brightness.


To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is running on battery power, click On battery, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

To turn adaptive brightness on or off when your computer is plugged into an outlet, click Plugged in, and then, in the list, click On or Off.

Click Apply. Click OK.

Brightness of my desktop has been increased what to do??


I've recently come to the realization that my computer monitor screen is not properly calibrated. In different web forums where photos are posted, I'm noticing that I can't make out a lot of the pictures people are talking about - they're too dark. I've also noticed this when printing out CD covers - detail in the shadows that I never saw on the screen. Also, every time I show people digital photos, I have to turn up the brightness (in Photoshop) to anywhere between 25 - 50 %! Needless to say, I need to calibrate my monitor. For a test, I downloaded one of those "black level" graphs whrere the squares go from dark to light and you should be able to see every square clearly - I can only see half before they disappear into all blackness.

I have one of those old "turn of the century" big Dell Monitors that came with my original computer back in 2000. It has two "select" buttons (- +) and two "adjust" buttons (- +) with a row of icons (showing which parameter you're adjusting) with lights underneath on the left. I know that the "sun" icon is brightness and the "half moon" icon is contrast, but I don't know what the rest are.

After selecting "brightness," I hit the adjust "+" button a couple of times and I expected to see a bar graph showing my adjustment, but there was nothing, so I left it alone. I don't want to screw up my monitor so I want to make sure that I'm doing this right. It says "recall" under the select and adjust buttons with "arrows" pointing to two buttons. I assume that you press these to go back to your default settings.

So, how do I go about doing this correctly? __________________

I have an ACER X203H and cannot adjust the contrast or the brightness. I can bring up the MENU, however I cannot adjust because when I HIT ENTER the menu disappears.


Press the Menu key on the Monitor to bring up the dialog box press Menu again because it defaults to the Brightness Icon. You will see the lower half of the dialog box change color. Use the left or right arrow to move off of Acer eColor Management to the User setting. Then press Menu again to edit contrast or brightness. User the left and right arrows on the Monitor to move to the desired adjustment, press Menu to allow adjust then arrow left for less or arrow right for more.
You really just keep moving between the Menu and arrow til you get it right.. I definitely needed to turn down the brightness on my monitor.

Want to unlock my monitor


This is the function that locks the OSD in order to keep the current states of
settings or prevent others from adjusting the current settings.

1. Lock : Hold down the menu button for more than five seconds to activate
the OSD adjustment lock function.

2. Unlock : Hold down the menu button for more than five seconds to
deactivate the OSD adjustment lock function.

Though the OSD adjustment lock function is activated, you can still
adjust the brightness and contrast, and adjust MagicBright ( )
using the Direct button.

Dim compaq s510 crt colored monitor


Hi, If you are comfortable working with tools, down to component level and know how to work around EHV areas, then it is possible to increase the brightness of any monitor including the Compaq S510. Make sure that the unit is unplug, Open the back cover and locate the FBT. You have to run/power on/attach a running PC to the unit with the cover off. Extreme care must be exercised. If you are not sure, you're better off asking a qualified service professional to do the adjustment. There two plastic slotted adjustables, focus & screen. Adjusting the screen changes the screen voltage going to the CRT. This will make the display go very dark or overly too bright. Adjust to your preference (not necessarily technically correct) The focus may also be adjusted this way. You have to run the unit with the back cover open for a couple of minutes to stabilize the voltages and the heater/CRT/ Adjust after a couple of minutes if necessary. In other monitors, there is a trimpot (small variable resistor) the adjusts the sub-bright. Further improvement maybe achieved by adding a 100uF/250V capacitor across the supply of the 70+VDC of the 3 gun transistors. If you are sure how to go about this, it is best to consult or seek the services of a qualified TV technician who can either show where and how or do the job himself. Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
