LCD back light is off or very dim

\015 I changed monitors and it works. Is there any setting on the monitor??Its only about two years old.\015

Answers :

I changed monitors and it works??? What worked. Did the brightness appear? Is the monitor now functioning properly?
\015\012
\015\012If not, monitors can have increase brightness by using the menu settings. The settings can be accessed by the buttons that are usually below the monitor screen on the front under panel. Adjust the brightness from there.
\015\012
\015\012If that fails then change the monitor. That you are suggesting that the backlight is out, I am assuming that you have a flatpanel monitor and not a CRT. Either can be configured the same way using the menu buttons; however, the back light issues are different in the two types of monitor.

\015\012Good Luck

There are brightness and contrast settings on all monitors. If you find that these are set to the maximum then :-
\015\012You could have a faulty inverter board or faulty CCFL lamp.
