Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Lets try the basic:

  • press the power button briefly, display controls would be shown;
  • press arrow right to brighten;
  • press arrow down to select contrast;
  • press arrow right to increase contrast;
  • press ENT to accept and save settings.
Should this not work, then the unit has a hardware fault, specifically the back light bulbs themselves or the electronic circuitry supplying their power and controlling their brightness level.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

My Delphi radio is opposite of what it should be. When I turn the headlights on the backlight goes dark. When I turn the headlights off the backlight is bright. The dimmer is turned all the way up.


This is NOT opposite - it is CORRECT.

IF you turn your headlights on then the assumption is that it is night time (or approaching it) and that it is DARK outside.
This means that the back light does not have to be as bright as it does during daylight in order that you can read the digits on the display

Best quality picture


This is likely a simple settings issue.

A lot of people don't realize that backlight settings can affect the picture.

Go to the menu (press menu on your remote)

The menu will show picture options. Just toy with different settings until you find what you want. It may be on a preset setting that doesn't work. If you are in a bright room, you will need to increase brightness and contrast and perhaps backlight.

Usually an unclear picture is due to the contrast, backlight, and brightness settings being too low. You can also increase sharpness.

I suggest a contrast setting of 70, a brightness setting of 60-80, and a backlight setting of above 80.

Good luck.,

Lost its brightness and clarity


Hello
Check whether the backlights get full brightness as you increase the bright ness level. Set the set to least contrast level, and check whether the backlight is sorking well. If it is OK, then try to increase the contrast level [to at least 70% of the total]. If backlight level cannot be adjusted according to the contrast level the backlight inverter baord and backlight CCFL lamps need to be checked.
images of the backlight inverter board and CCFL lamps are attached here.

I changed the batterys in my 1F78-151 thermostat and now the backlite does not work.....


• Display Backlight - (Not available on earlier models.) The display backlight improves display contrast in low lighting conditions. Selecting backlight ON will turn the light on for a short period of time after any button is pressed. Selecting backlight OFF (default) will keep the light off. Turn the display backlight feature ON as follows: 1. Press TIME and RUN buttons at the same time. The display will show "d-L" and "OFF" alternately

Backlight dont show when i press the left top button


The Tag Heuer F1 does not have a backlight function by way of pressing a button. However, if you mean the lumen on the hands and numbers not showing, then all that needs is daylight to recharge them.

I had a similar problem and found it hard to tell the time at night but I soon realised that the lumens needed a charge etc.... Hold your watch under a light source (torch) for a few minutes and you will see what I mean.

Navman 5500 gps backlight dim but set to max


Its water ingress causing a short in the high voltage wiring PCB.

Open the unit with a 1.5mm allen key, unscrew the power/data cable sockets with a spanner and GPS antenna inlet with an 8mm socket (NA to i models) .

Where water has arced there will be burning black on the green PCB evident, cut the PCB wire and remove the section around the burn.
solder a new wire to bypass the short.
Dry the unit and seal with silicone to prevent re occurrence.

Its a 2 hour repair requiring a high DIY soldering standard but off set it against the time it will take to reload you waypoints in a new plotter , its well worth the trouble.

Backlight not working on my Navman Pin 570


On the main menu (Start-- Win Logo) go to settings. Then go to system at the bottom of the screen. Tap on Power. At the very bottom of the screen in small print go to "Adjust Backlight settings to conserve power". Click on "backlight" in blue print.

Motorola V220 - no backlight


I would say it's either your screen or the flex cable that is gone.You need to get it to a qualified repair tech to deal with this issue.These motorola v220 phones are nice little phones but very troublesome.
