My display LCD screen just went dark. It's not the power save, and I've tried to adjust the brightness as well. I can still see images but it's very dark as if the backlight bulb is broken. Hope this is clear.
It sounds like somehow the light in the LCD has shorted out. You probably need the LCD screen. If you need some parts you may want to contact a guy in South Carolina who has lots of used parts for all the Panasonic Cameras at reasonable prices. I bought a used LCD from him and it works like new. I think his email is [email protected]

Sounds like your keybinding/hotkey combo is not doing its job. (or your bulb in the display is going out)
You can open up Control Panel and adjust brightness from there.
Click "Start ' Control Panel ' Hardware and Sound ' Power Options" to open the Power Options window.
Click and drag the bottom "Screen Brightness" slider to the right to increase screen brightness and to the left to decrease it. Making this adjustment changes the brightness level only for the current power source; if you change power sources, the screen brightness may change again.
Click "Change Plan Settings" on whichever power plan is currently selected.
Click and drag the "Adjust Plan Brightness" slider to the right to increase brightness for each of the power sources, such as "On Battery" or "Plugged In." If you want high-precision numeric control, you need to access the advanced settings.
Click "Change Advanced Power Settings."
Click "+" next to "Display" and then "Display Brightness" to expand these options.
Click "On Battery" and enter a percentage in the field provided. Choosing "100" will set the screen to maximum brightness; any other brightness will be a percentage of the maximum brightness. To increase the brightness, make sure the number you enter is higher than the current value.
Click "Plugged In" and set its brightness percentage.
Click "Apply" and then "OK" to close the Advanced Settings window.
Click "Save Changes" to save any changes you made on the Edit Plan Settings page. If you only make changes in the Advanced Settings page, the Save Changes button will be grayed out. If that's the case, just click "Cancel."
Older monitors(CRT type) are using complex circuit than LCD, It requires more power consumption than LCD, but you can still save power by 30% through this tip. 1.You must position or install your monitor in a dark area or position. 2.Adjust the brightness control to the level of the black part of the picture must be seen black not gray, or became white. 3. Adjust the contrast control at your most comfortable level. 4.Avoid using bright picture screen saver or blank screen saver. 5.Turn off your monitor manually if necessary.
if it is very dark to the point that it is almost black and has no light at all then there is a part in the display needs to be replaced, it is called fl tube. if the screen is dark but still there is somewhat some light then try going into the power setting, your pc might be set for low brightness to reserve power, see if you can adjust there, otherwise your display may just be going bad... Best of Luck
if the picture is REALLY dark, like you can just barely see it in a lit room, then the backlight might not be lit. LCD TVshave backlight that shines through the LCD screen which allows you to see the picture.
If it's not the backlight then it would be the brightness/contrast settings that need to be adjusted. If the picture used to be normal and all of a sudden went dark, verify the backlight. Normally you can look through the slots on the top of the set and determine if the backlight is on. If you can see a bright light through any of the slots, the backlight is probably OK... go after the brightness/contrast settings.
