Hi,

I picked up a used 21" Compaq P110 monitor (Sony Trinitron tube) and the brightness was too dim even at the highest manual setting. So I took off the case to adjust the brightness pot and I can't seem to find it anywhere? The screws to adjust are labled with abbreviations such as HDK and XBV but none of them seem to increase the brightness. Anyone have an idea which one I have to adjust? Thanks!

I have the same problem on my monitor, but before you tear your monitor apart, here is a free program that adjusts the brightness of your monitor. It works great and makes my monitor as bright as it needs to be.
