Re: Backlight too dark
OK! IF YOU CAN GET INTO YOUR MENU SETTING YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SET THE BRIGHTNESS ON THE LCD. IF YOU HAVE YOUR MANUAL IT SHOULD TELL YOU HOW. IF YOU NEED THE MANUAL, GO ONLINE TO THE CAMERA WEBSITE AND YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD AN ONLINE COPY THERE. IF THIS DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM, YOU MAY HAVE TO REPLACE THE LCD. THIS CAN BE DONE BY ANY GOOD REPAIR SHOP. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP,REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217.

When the display is to dark or to light, the manual says:
Adjust the brightness of the backlight (page 18).
On page 18 it says:
This sets the brightness of the LCD screen. When viewing images in bright outside light if [Brightness] is set to [Normal], reset to [Bright]. However, the battery power may decrease faster under such condition.
You also can press the button with the > logo, to change between view pictures and record.
If your LCD doesn't light up then it's either the backlight or the LCD, you can open up the camera and check the cables before buying any parts. Some LCD screens come with the backlight, some don't; not sure if this one does or not.
IF it was water damage, you probably have corrosion on the main PCB and won't be able to fix it without replacing the board... open it up and check for corrosion!
Hope this helps.
