Question about Sharp R-326FS 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
The LCD clock on my microwave is suddenly extremely dim and difficult to see. It (and the microwave) are working, however the display is soo dim that it almost appears off. I have tried turning off the power and starting it again, and can't find any instructions in the manual. Any ideas?
This is a common failure of the control panel assemblies of these and similar microwaves. We repair these control panbel assemblies nationwide for only $32.50. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Before sending it in for repair, I would try using some electronic contact cleaner on all the connections on the circuit board. A dim LCD display could be a symptom of low voltage to the display (similar to what you see when a digital watch display dims) which could be caused by a resistive connection between the power supply and the panel.
