Being somewhat dim when you turn on a LCD monitor is normal depending how dim it is. If it appears to have a color cast to it, it probably is going bad.

Problem with those stickers is that they adhere to some possibly unknown set of rules.

It's very likely that they have to report the MAX power draw at any one time. I.e. the surge current on power up.

If you really want to know whats up, but a watt meter. The reuslts are quite illuminating. You just plug your appliance into it and then run it for a week or so and it'll tell you the real average wattage over time of your device. THere is no other way to find out what something really uses than to measure it directly.

Something like this https://www.wattsupmeters.com/secure/products.php?pn=0

Even the cheapest one on there will tell you a l lot. Plug your entire computer into it with a power strip and see how much you can save by powering it off when your not using it!

Your original post was asking how to find the watts for the monitor. Is there something else you need help with?
The pic in my last post and others have explained the calculations.

with 1.2 amps, 100V, that is 100W. What country are you in? The US standard is 120V@ 60cycles and most of Europe and the UK is 240V @ 50 cycles. Ohm's law applies universally.
