Cant read the menu. Is backlight broken.? I can see the word garnin when I turn power on. But the menu is difficult to read- Is it konfigutation for dark or light screen?

It depends on the model - but CCFL tubes are used by Garmin to light the screen of GPS devices. A CCFL tube comes with a high voltage inverter to power the tube. Meaning either the CCFL Tube or the Inverter can be dead.

Symptom is a barely readable screen and becomes a bit more visible when looked at from an angle. No light comes from the screen at all.

The inverter can be tested by holding oscilloscope leads close to the screen. A sinus waveform of about 50 - 60 Khz should be visible when the device is powered at full screen intensity.

When i plus up my laptop the power lights come on but it doesnt post or screen comes on.

Check the hard drive activity light; if it is active at power on, look at the display from an angle to see if some ghosting of images is visible. If so, the back light for the display or its inverter may have failed.
If you have a friend you can borrow a monitor from or use briefly, connect it to the VGA (D-15 connector) to see if you have any video output. If you still see nothing, turn off the power and access the memory in the laptop. Remove and return any memory cards and try it again.
If you still have no boot, it will need technical help since this could indicate a failed motherboard or CPU.

MacBook 13" starts but screen is barely visible. Tried System Preferences - already on brightest setting. Works fine otherwise. Any ideas? Capt. Dave

could be your inverter board, whitch controls the backlight. I could very well be the backlight as well, but that is less likely. Inverter boards are not all too expensive, and if you are knoledgable with laptops, i would say doit yourself, but if you have any doubts, take it to apple, sur it will cost more, but it is the safet bet.

Oh no the replacement of the back light is a complex process and is not advisable for you to open up the LCD for its replacement as the LCD might get damaged in the process and might void you warranty. It is always advisable to contact the manufacturer or a service person to get it changed.

When powered up, the desktop is barely visible.

You probably need a new inverter or a back light replacement for the screen. Any good techie can do that for you, and not all that expensive.

Barely able to see screen.

Your screen or the inverter underneath it which controls the power to the screen is bad.
