Screen really dark

The screen of my player is really dark and i am barely able to see anything. I checked the brightness level and it is all the way up, and it did not help. Is there any way i can make the screen brighter and visible?

Re: 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.

Hi! I hope this will work: go in your phone settings, on the screen options, some phones come with a screen timeout for saving baterry's lifetime. Have a nice day!

My i-pod screen is really dark i can hardly see anything, what could the problem be?

You might want to check the iPod's brightness settings. Here's how to:

My ipod touch screen has gone dark, and can barely been seen if it is then its at a certain light angle within the house.

Go into settings. You should see a buttn that says brightness. tap on that and slide the slider to maximum.

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.

My 8gig itouch screen is dark it still works but the screen is so dark i can barely see it i have the brightness up all the way

then the problem is the LCD of your device. Don't keep pressing too hard on the screen, it might have been damaged. And, as much as possible, don't let it get near magnetic areas...

Dark screen on zen v plus

Was the device dropped or damanged? The most common problem is a cracked screen. The crack is on the back so you can't see it. The screen will need to be replaced.
