Monitor magically stoped working.

Recommended Posts

Hello-

Odd problem this time. Upon starting up my computer a few days ago, my monitor, a ViewSonic VX2245, did not display. The blue light on it indicated that it was connected to the computer, but there was nothing displaying. When I got to the desktop, with a very close look, I could see the wallpaper extremely dim. After restarting the computer many times, it worked magically, but after restarting again, or putting the computer asleep, this happens again. I have uninstalled it and the driver from Device Manager, and reinstalled with latest drivers.

 

The monitor isn't physically broken because the 1 time that it did go on with full display, there was no cracks or damage to the screen, this is a problem of it being EXTREMLY dim, and using the arrows on the monitor to modify that, are to hard to see. From a foot away, it looks like it if off, but from an inch or two away, you can barley see the desktop.

 

Thanks-

Might sound silly but is the connection at the back of monitor making a FULL connection,   Have a peep,  some bent damaged pins?

If you can see things being displayed but extremely dim, it means that the monitor is still working but the backlighting has probably failed.

Pins are all fine. I have tried it on another computer and it is still dim. Ill see if I can find a fix for the dim back lighting.

With today's flat screen monitors and tv's, the fix is usually replacement unless it is still in warranty.
