Sometimes I See Your Content… And Sometimes I Don’t… What’s Going On?

You may need to adjust your display on your computer. Since Fairies Dreams & Fantasy uses light on dark color scheme; bright text enables you to read what’s actually on your screen. Depending on what monitor type you have, there’s ways to get your display set for reading content on this site.

For CRT Monitor Users

Check with the manual that goes with your monitor. You can adjust the brightness of your screen. Adjusting the brightness on your monitor can help you see the text on a dark background.

If you can see what’s on your screen; and your problem goes away; you are done fixing your problem. If not… you might need to adjust your sharpness level, and your contrast level. High contrast setting for your monitor is strongly recommended to easily see content on this website… if you chosen to raise the sharpness level for some reason; be sure to adjust your brightness again. If the problem goes away, the issue has been resolved.

For LCD Monitor Users

Most LCD monitors use LCD panels with backlights to light up your screen. Due to it’s design; your screen may consume more power when visiting this website. You can still adjust your contrast levels, and the brightness level to condition your screen to use this color scheme. You need to experiment with your screen to varify if you can see the contents on this website.

Glare, and bright light can prevent you from seeing what’s on your screen. Try using the screen at the dark areas of your home/apartment.

For LED Monitor Users

LEDs are lights that can be used for monitors. You can establish seeing content on this site by adjusting your settings on your monitor itself. Brightening the screen, and raising the contrast can help you see what’s being displayed on your screen. If you can see it… your screen is strong enough to output data.

Again… try going to the dark areas of your home to see what’s on your screen.

Note

If you can’t see colors, you might need a special monitor to adjust colors on your screen, or use a screen-reader (recommended). For the best results; use an open-source screen-reader, or a OS dedicated screen-reader on your computer that support reading online content.

Desktop backgrounds may prevent you from viewing content

Try adjusting your desktop theme/background to minimize glare around your browser. You can also maximize your browser to full screen. That works the best for viewing content on Fairies Dreams & Fantasy.

If you were using a big TV of any kind; you can still see content on this site. Be sure to check these minimum requirements on your machine:

  • VGA card – I support use of this device because, all content on Fairies Dreams & Fantasy are DRM-Free.
  • Analog audio output – This requirement is strongly recommended.

Any size monitor will do.

If you were using a computer that is managed by a business, or any organization… contact your administrator for help.

I’m in a dark room, but I still can’t see your content. What’s going on?

Your backlight is defective, or Your CRT monitor has some issues. If it’s a CRT monitor; you may need to have it repaired by a technician. If it’s an LCD monitor; the backlight needs to be replaced. Or your screen is damaged, or worn out, and it needs to be replaced.

Try adjusting the brightness on your monitor,–depending on your device you can find a controller to adjust your screen.

If overheating is your concern, you can try using a fan system to keep your monitor from overheating. Or ask your technician to install it for you. Heat from a CRT monitor can damage the CRT itself, and cause it to fail.

If you were using a projector

You can adjust the focus, and test your projector to varify if you can see what’s on a big screen. You might need to experiment with your machine to confirm if you can see content displayed on this website.

If you were located in an area where is susceptible to glare from any light source; a visor is needed to block the glare. Alternatively; you can use the shade for your place to keep the glare out. Opt for the dark shade that will protect the insides of your home from the light.
