TFT monitor is playin up!


Well-known Member
i have just bought a 15" tft panel and i am using the dvi input. i cannot adjust the contrast and all other set-up controls so the display is way too bright this due to it being a dvi connection or is it due to something else? i have asked the shop i bought it from and they didn't even know it had a dvi connection, they tried to convince me i had to use the standard rgb as well to display images, has anyone got any clues? BTW its a samsung syncmaster 152t connected to a aiw radeon 8500dv.

I have an Eizo 15" and only use the DVI connection. No problems with image adjustment.. The brightness levels are set very high b default. My unit supports RGBS, which I find more pleasing to the eye... probably something simple like the menu button is gubbed..

Get it replaced...



I have a Philips Brilliance 15.1 TFT.

Both DVI & VGA inputs.

I'm back to my old graphics card now, but as far as I can remember, when using the DVI input, the brightness & contrast controls weren't available.

It's maybe a trait of pure digital signal transmission.

You can obviously adjust both in you graphics driver interface.

But DVI was amazingly superior to VGA with my mon.

Can't wait (but I'll have 2) for me new card :(
