You probably have a bad capacitor on the invertor board. try shining a flashlight into it to see if you can see anything. if capacitors are good, you might have some burnt out backlight bulbs. i just had the same problem, replaced the capacitors but messed something else up on the way i guess cause now all i have is a bright white screen with a few colors here and there.

make sure the 'VGA' lead is plugged in properly. if still dark turn up the brightness on the monitor. if still dark after that, go onto the computer settings and turn up the brightness on the display settings.

Hope this helps!!!

My HP flat screen (crt) screen is getting dark


If the brightness control is set to maximum and the picture is still too dark, two things might be happening. The CRT picture tube may have deteriorated over time, and/or the high voltage circuitry inside the monitor is failing to deliver enough HV to the tube.
In both cases theoretically it can be fixed (the CRT tube replaced with a new one, and the HV part cleaned of dust residue and repaired), but most probably it would cost not much less than purchasing a modern LCD monitor...

L13V36 Dark Screen, picture can be seen in bright light.


If the backlight lights up for a second it's probably fine - It lay odds on the display inverter in the screen. Actually finding parts for anything made by gateway may be difficult, however. They do not sell spare parts. Considering the size of the LCD i bet it would almost exceed the replacement cost of the screen to repair it

Dark


It could be a few things, it may be the monitor itself, which naturally has dark picture.
Or by factory default the monitor has low brightness.
Try going into the menu and putting the brightess up.
Most monitors have low brightness by default.
have a happy new year.

To even things out you need to use the controls on the monitor to lower the brightrnes. to acceptable levels. When playing a DVD there are seperate controls in the software and your graphics driver to adjust the Video Overly settings. Look for settings called gamma and brightness in the video overlay settings in the windows display properties panel. This should help even things out some. Deal is to crank down the brightness on the monitor and crank it up in the video settings in windows. It will make the DVD's brighter and rest of the time the regular screen darker.

L13V36 Dark Screen, picture can be seen in bright light.


welcome to fixya

it sounds like the back light on both monitors are going bad
it might be better to call a repair man and get him to look at it see if it is going to be worth fixing i think it might be better then buying a new one at the prices now days

i hope this helps out have a nice day:)
