Have you attempted darkening the display on the calculator through the function keys? Push "2nd" and then push "up" a few times. After resetting the calculator, this setting will always revert to a lower, unreadable setting. I'm sure TI knows about this, but they probably arent too inclined to fix it.

Is there a way to change the contrast as two of my units have a barely readable screen as the numbers are too light to read easy


Too light numbers usually indicate weak batteries. If you're sure the batteries are new then the display is done.

Need to make print darker, hard to read


I have an old Kindle e-reader that I can barely read anymore. The text is not black anymore but light gray. There is no fix for it as it's simply a worn-out display. The earlier virtual paper displays had a finite lifetime of about 2500 hours I learned from doing research.

I bought a Kindle Paperwhite to replace it. I guess it will also wear out but hopefully technology has extended the time before it fades into oblivion.

Gateway laptop powers up but screen does not come up.


Why did you replace the lcd inverter? Were you able to barely see icons on the desktop which is an indication that the lcd inverter is bad? If not, then you need to replace the lcd screen. If you could barely see the icons and you replaced the lcd inverter, then the inverter is bad. Just because the inverter is new does not mean it works. If the video shows on the external monitor, but you can't see anything on the laptop's screen even when you shine a flashlight on it then the lcd screen is bad.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your ideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad.
If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

Why is my Gateway 4028GZ screen black


The display on this laptop is backlit. What that means, in a nutshell, is that the image on the display prevents the output from a constant light source (the back light) from showing through, thus giving a usable image on the screen. From your description, the backlight is no longer operating. This can be an issue with the LCD display panel, the backlight power module, our (less likely) a power trace on the motherboard. Repair would likely cost as much or more than replacing with a used laptop and just transferring your hard drive. If you choose to replace and swap hard drives make certain that the interface on the new laptop is the same as your Gateway's.

Display is faint and to light to read


Turn the calculator on. Hold down the "C" key (just above the ON key) and press + to darken the screen. If you go too far, use the C and - keys to lighten the screen.

Phone display is very dim-can barely read


Well, first you will have to check your options, if you can read it enough to get in there.  You may have the backlight turned off.  If the backlight is not turned off, then you probably have a bad backlight and will have to take it to your provider to get it fixed.  Replacing a screen/backlight is not something I would attempt to do unless you are certain you know exactly what you are doing as you can render the phone completely useless.

Display battery level


Well, I tried pressing and HOLDING down the mode button. The battery level display miraculously showed up. I’ve also read (yahoo answers) that battery level display will show up automatically when battery is low. Hopefully I won't have to do this every time I recharge the battery.
