I have a HP Pavilion F1503 Flat Panel Monitor which is just 3 years old, but still in good condition. The problem is the amount of brightness displayed on the screen, I have tried to restart the PC, I have tried to adjust the screen brightness with both the PC panel and the Control Panel but nothing seems to work. I have read the INFORMATION FILE for the monitor but no help is listed on it and the HELP AND SUPPORT section on my PC doesn't have any information for my LCD Monitor... Please send a solution ASAP 'cause I really want my Monitor back to normal...:-)
(By the way, I'm just 12 years old so please use small words for me!! (I've got my parents permission!!))

amprich63, You should try to evaluate the state of the "switch-mode-power-supply" in the F1503 unit. Reconnect it to a FULLY booted KNOWN GOOD PC that is currently displaying the WIN-desktop screen! Then and only then push the "ON" button for the F1503. Did you see the desktop window?? if only for 1 second? What did you see next? Did you see a BLACK and BLANK screen? or Maybe just a BLACK screen? Do another post to this and tell me EXACTLY what you see or don't see when you shine a bright torch 2-3cm from lcd panel!!! I think you may have a BACKLIGHTING or POWER SUPPLY problem. I'm12fixlouie on fixya. if this was of some help rate this on fixya
Unfortunately the problem is the monitor has gone bad, more specifically and likely is the backlight which is used to light up the monitor. You could fix it by replacing the LCD, but you can get monitors cheaper than a replacement LCD so it wouldn't be very cost effective to do so.
Check for the updated drivers as well as your video card, if you have an internal video card and have tested it (your computer) on another monitor it is more than likely the inverter in the monitor the coils (on the mainboard) need to be resoldered more than likely.
Check the backlight as well
