I have this exact same problem and I have solved it by the following method. Open the unit (2 screws), remove the silver box (3 screws and gold pin connectors), and remove the circuit board (2 screws). You will see the screen is connected to the circuit board by a ribbon cable and two poles with metal connectors that actually go through the circuit board. One of the poles moved freely in and out of the circuit board on my unit, the other was still fixed in place and could not be removed easily. I found that when this pole was fully connected, the backlight functioned and did not when the connection was broken. I soldered the pole in place which solved the problem (maintained the connection).

The display is dim on the oven. Everything works


1. Sometimes you can clean it inside to brighten it up for a while.

2. In some cases, we can replace the VFD to brighten one up if it's available for a given model.

3. The last solution is to replace the control circuit board.

For more specifics on the options 2 & 3, we would need your brand and full model number.

Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, as well as your symptoms, "dim display".

As for suggestion # 1, cleaning:

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you can detach the keypad connector (as per attached photo) then remove the control panel screws.

Be careful not to crack the glass display when handling it, or it's a goner.

Then you can use a soft cloth (not a paper towel) and a mild cleaner (not ammonia-based) to clean the front surface of the VFD display glass and the rear side of the clear bezel (display window) that's attached to the keypad.

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Monitor is dim


Sounds like your inverter is failing. The inverter takes the dc power from the battery and charger and converts to high voltage AC current for the backlight lamp inside the screen. When the inverter starts to fail, the display will sometimes blink, dim out over time, flash just get dark and stay that way.

I have a newer sony receiver that suddenly had the same problem


The display operates on ac and dc voltage. The outer pins on the display should read approx. 3 to 5 volts dc.It might read more. If the circuit traces are good to the transformer the ac will be there. The dc is supplied by a zener diode. The zener diode is shorted or breaking down. This will cause a dim display. Follow the display's outer pins circuit traces to locate the diode and verify the circuit traces are not broken as these lines sometimes are run down the edges of the boards. The edge of a board is a popular place for a board to have a crack and break some traces. Good luck, barneyluc

Display dims on certain menu items


The display will dim for certain features that are not available for use in your current configuration or current operation.
For example; if you do not have an antenna plugged in then the selection for the tuner will be dimmed on the display.
