This is normal for any notebook - it reduces power consumption to make battery last longer.
You can turn up brightness manually if you want to (usually an FN+F? key combination).

My mytouch 4g lcd backlight is dim but it gets brighter when i plugin the charger, is it the lcd? Or the connector to the lcd.


I'm not sure what a Mytouch is but on laptops if you don't have the power cord plugged in the display is normally dimmer or darker to preserve energy because it is running off the battery. You can make it brighter to some degree by pressing the correct keys on your keyboard. Once you plug the power cord in, laptops automatically display a brighter screen. This is all normal protocol.

I just bought new headlight bulbs but one light is way brighter then the other, my left is brighter then the right and stays dim even when i turn on the night lights. whats the issue?


dear,

There is the issue with the wattage of bulb you have got for the vehcicle.

And also due to a new bulb it shines brighter then the old one.

get the old one also repaced to get the equal brightness

thanx

The screen brightness changes due to plug in or battery power


This is quite common actually I see it a lot. There really isn't any reason, it seems that when on batteries it trys to save power by Dimming Down, but it often just mucks up.. I always now set it via the keyboard keys. whenever I change from power adapter, to battery.

When i turn on my mac ibook g4 the screen gets light then suddenly goes dark and seems to boot up but the screen is black but i can faintly see the desktop icons. What should it do?? thanks


your backligny is probably off. try "increaseing the brightness" on your screen. on macs that should probably be one of the F-keys at the top of your keyboard. I think brighter is F2 or Fn + F2 or somethinglike that. just find the symbol. Do this while your laptop is plugged in to make sure it's not just dimming you screen to save battery.

When i insert the powercord the bright ness will get dim


Its not a problem, its how it was designed. With the power cord in it will be at full power so it will light brighter, When the power cord is out, it will be less bright as its using power from the battery , it will light dimmer to conserve power.

Acer 4520 light going dim


Normally the way it works is if you plug in your AC Adapter to a laptop the computer screen will Brighten up since its no longer running off of battery and is actually charging . The reason why it should go dim is when you unplug the Ac adapter it goes dim to save battery life and last longer. If you are getting a really dim you can check and make sure that the Ac adapter jack on the adapter or motherboard isnt loose and it could be having contact to the unit and be loose inside and every small movement causes it not to charge / charge in and out and would cause this Dim effect. Again this depends on how old the computer is and I dont really think its the LCD or backlight going bad but you can try to mess with the screen brightness and If im not mistaken on that model it should be the FN key and the Right > and Left < Key for lower and higher brightness. Give that a try and check the adapter connection and you can pin point the issue . Hopefully it doesnt come worst to worst which could be a bad LCD going bad or damaged lcd internal cable. Hope my answer helped guide you closer to a solution.
