Re: dimming the brightness
Hey...Mama of many,
Try used your fingers press on the buttons on the monitor and the on screen will appeared. Then just press the next button until you reached the icon (brightness.) Next used the - and + to changed the brightness. Have a nice day!

It does sound like it had logic issue that seding the dimming command to the backlight inverter circuits to dim down the lamps. Yoy may have to look inside.
Please look here to see what ususlly goes wrong with the monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
I suspect the backlight power of your monitor. Try to find out if the dimming is indepented of the angle of the monitor (e.g. just the time that the screen dimms out open or close SLOWLY the screen). If that is correct there is a problem (cut) in the internal cable that gives power for backlight at your screen. Reply by post.
Lcd monitors do not go overbright due to aging,they may go dim due to backlight aging.Do front panel controls work and if so what happens when you try to bring down brightness?
Some monitors have a "Recall" function which is a factory restore bringing all setting to factory value.
Try this if available.
I recently had a similar problem with a MAG LCD monitor. Try the following to see if this resolves your problem:
- set brightness to a lower level. On LCD monitors you can go as low as 0 and still see the screen. With my problem when I set the brightness below 70% the problem went away. A few days later I turned it all the way up to 100% and the problem did not return. However I did not continue to keep it at that level. I found no need for it and find 50% to be exceptable for my needs.
I would say yes it does have something to do with the lamp controler which controls the lamp brightness. I do not know all the technical reasons why a controler starts to have this sort of problem. If your monitor is still under warranty I would take advantage of the free repair otherwise keep the brightness below the level that causes the problem; for me that was under 70 percent.
I hope this solution works for you. Perhaps there are others that can give you all the technical reasons why a controler starts to exhibit this behavior.
