Display contrast needs adjusted

The display contrast on one of our phones changed to where it is all dark blue so now unable to be read. Anyone know how to adjust the contrast back to a normal setting? I can't find it in any manual we have for the system. Thanks.

    I found that the way to adjust the contrast is simply to use the volume toggle with the reciever in place.

Fx 115 es can't see the display

First, try adjusting the display contrast. Press SHIFT MODE down-arrow 6 then use the left/right-arrows to change the contrast. If that doesn't do any good, try replacing the battery.
Contrast adjustment is on page E-5 and the battery replacement instructions start on page E-71 of the manual.

No matter how dark the contrast, if the room is dark you will be able to read it well enough to get to the settings -that is unless the display is burned out altogether

Display screen to dark

First thing you need to do is,inside where you can see the screen, search for the brightness and contrast options in your cameras menu. Once you know where they are go outside and try to tweak it until it works. Usually you would want a higher brightness, then just adjust the contrast until your satisfied.

Hope this helps

Display contrast - too dark

You should be able to adjust LCD contrast when phone is idle, just use the up/down arrow button to adjust it (don't go off-hook). If you have background music set, the above procedure will adjust the music volume instead. You can turn Background music on and off by pressing <Feature>,2,6 when your phone is idle. Alternatively, you may press <Speaker> 6,0,2 and then use the UP/Down arrow key to adjust LCD contrast.
