Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Screen So Bright I Can Barely See Anything...

\015 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...:-)\015\012\015\012(By the way, I'm just 12 years old so please use small words for me!! (I've got my parents permission!!))\015\012\015\012Cheers, TechMan72!!!\015\012I have a Relisys TL528A LCD Monitor which is not new but still in good condition.

Answers :

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.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
