Is it possible to turn LED backlight off?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I bought a monitor 2 days ago(LG2242C-BN) and it's a downgrade to my previous one, I just want to turn the backlight off,
everything is too bright, and the bottom is too bright.

I'd give it back but the company i bought it from doesn't accept returns or give me my money back. LG support wasn't very helpful either.

Thanks

You do realize you won't be able to see almost anything if you actually remove the backlight?

I'm just out of ideas, I can't stare at this thing for more than 10 minutes and my eyes start to hurt, before i could look at it for 12 hours and everything was ok. CCC doesn't help much, neither do the monitor setting themselves, there's always this greyish-too bright thin on it

why not just turn the brightness down?

Aww man, that's sad. No returns huh? was it some opened box deal or something?
One solution would be to start using some sort of glasses, it actually helps your eyes not get dry on the computer biggrin.gif

Well no, it was just a regular purchase from a store here, and the only way i can do something with that same store is return it as faulty, which won't end well and they'll just say "it works fine." Glasses are too expensive... f.lux doesn't help either.

Use the OSD and change the contrast/brightness?

I tried both brightness and contrast, they help but only by a bit...
