If the brightness control is turned all the way up and the screen is still dark, then the LCD display is defective. Probably a problem with the backlight.

To turn on, you have to press and hold down the on/off power button until the screen comes on. There is a design flaw with the power switch. Please see this link for details. Too much info and pictures to paste here:
