Try shining a flashlight or a lamp on the screen and see if you can faintly see the Windows desktop in the background. If you can then the problem is the backlight. Laptop screens have a light that shines from behind the screen and lets you see the display. If this is a laptop computer it will need to go in for service. If this is a monitor for a desktop computer you can try turning it on and off a few times, or leave it unplugged for a few hours and try it again but failing that it also needs service.

My calculator ti-84 plus is having problems. When i turn it on it will turn off quickly by itself. and while its on i try to click on any botton and it doesnt show the number etc


It could be that the main batteries are drained and are no longer able to supply power to the calculator. Replace the AA batteries with a fresh set. After replacing the batteries the display may become too dark or too dim. To set the correct contrast
Press [2nd] key and release it.
Press and maintain pressure on UpArrow to increase contrast (darken screen), OR on DownArrow to decrease it (lighten screen). If you overshoot your intented contrast you can revert the processs.

We recently got a new LG 42" 1080p HDTV and occasionally the screen goes dim/gets slightly darker while we are watching shows. It is not the show as I have tested the same spot the dimness occurs...


It can be the auto-contrast is doing its jobs so LG can claim that the TV has really high contrast ratio, also try turning off auto brightness feature off. It gets real bad when the scene has dark back ground such as the dark sky with stars, the TV will really dim down to give real black sky but at the same time you can barely see the stars on the screen, LG is not the only one with this design problem, VIZIO and other has the same problem as well. If you Google your model and search for review you may see that you are not the only one with this problem.
What is the exact model of this TV.
Please let me know what you find.

Hasn't been used for a while and now won't turn on...changed batteries


Very likely that the screen contrast changed after the replacement of batteries.Some times screen becomes too dark or too dim.
If it does not seem to turn ON that may be because screen is too dim that you cannot see anything and cannot be sure it is ON.

To darken the screen:
  1. Press the ON button
  2. Press [2nd] key and release it.
  3. Press and HOLD the Up Arrow.
  4. Keep at it until screen starts showing something.

Acer AL175 TFT monitor is coming on but its very dim


The screen itself is starting to go bad which is why your having to turn up the brightness to 100% just to see something. Replacing the screen would cost more then the whole lcd monitor itself so its best to get a new one.

Monitor dims on a black background hanns G 28


Go into monitor settings and turn "off" X-Contrast. X-Contrast will auto change contrast when backgrounds darkens. However, adjust manually the Brightness and Contrast settings to compensate.
