Apparently the backlight for your display is failing. You'll most likely have to have the top half of the macbook replaced per Apple usual service standards.

SOURCE: Screen is dark or dead on my 17" Macbook Pro

This could be a backlight issue, a board issue or an inverter issue. Look at the screen closely, if there is a faint image it's either a backlight issue or inverter issue. To weed out between the two you can just order on inverter, they're 20 bucks on ebay, if that doesn't work, replace the backlight. Backlight repairs are somewhat difficult. As much as I would like to be able to tell you a quickfix that will solve backlight the problem, you'll most likely have to google for guides that show you exactly how to replace the backlight or bring it in for repairs.I work for Mac Repair NYC and i have to fix this problem a lot.

SOURCE: Mac laptop displays minimum brightness

Check to see if there is a box right below that... Saying something along the lines of readjust to brightness of surroundings, etc!  Make sure box is unchecked for you, in regrds to your issue and then see if that helps!  I will look a little further into it for you!  Let me know if that helps though!

Itouchs brightness is really low but the brightness level high


You tried setting the Brightness to maximum, but the screen remained dark? Could be a problem with the LEDs that light up the screen. Also try turning it off and back on.

Display is very dark


Dim screen is usually caused by a bad inverter board especially if you get video to external monitor. Usually cost $100-$200 depending on laptop.

Hope this helps!

Screen really dark


Did the screen come that dark, or did it go dark recently? Backlight may have burned up, panel may be bad. Had a similar occurance with a Creative Zen- can't fix these things. All you can really do is return it.
