    I know this is stretching it, but if so tell me and I'll delete it. (can I?).
    I got a free virtuall unused LCD screen today for my mobile rackmount computer project. But (get what you pay for) it is too dim to really be of use. It is well lit, but I can barely make out the image on it. Just alot of dim grey light.

    Any takers on this one? Whats the deal? Replace a part or replace the monitor (not an option b/c $)

    Thanks.

    I have had monitors with a switch for different input levels. Perhaps this is for a non-standard signal level.

    Have you contacted the seller to see if they have any insight?

    Got it for free. Salvaged from an old unused public workstation at work.

    Pulled it apart today. Backlight is 100% working.

    Frustrated. This was the IDEAL thing I needed for my stage computer project. Which has zero funding- hence the glory of a free LCD monitor.

    Thanks for the input. Will dig around at it a bit more tonight.

    Can you also get the graphics card from the old workstation?
