Hi. My main display backlight suddenly went off as i was looking at my pics. I did not change any settings. The front display is lit as usual. I tried taking out the battery, restarting, recharging, changing display settings back and forth - nothing works :(. any ideas?

30" apple cinema display suddenly went blank.

It's probably the backlight. If you look very closely, perhaps using a flashlight, you might be able to see that it is still working but just not being lit up from the back. In that case it may be worth fixing, but if not, then it's probably past its useful life.
One other thing you might try is a different power supply.

How do i change the time on my verizon ravine 2 from military time to 24 hour time?

Hi Marilyn - As military time is the same as 24 hour time, did you mean you'd prefer to display 12 hour time rather than 24 hour time?

The phone's manual explains how to alter the clock format so I've copied the relevant part for you.

DISPLAY SETTINGS (page123 of manual)
To set up display options using the Easy Set-up Wizard:
1. Press the Center Select Key [MENU], select Settings & Tools and press the Center Select Key [OK]. Select Display Settings, press the Center Select Key [OK], select Easy Set-upthen press the Center Select Key [OK].


To skip the step, press the Right Soft Key D [Skip].

Front display poising backlight and goes dim.

I believe this is most likely due to incorrect voltages at the display. If you have a meter and are familiar with working on electronics, check the voltage at pin 3 of cn501. It should be -28.5. If the voltage is very low, try changing C123 and C124 in the power supply. If the voltage is ok, check R925 and R932, these are both 10 ohm 1/8th watt.

Hi! On my DSR-1800, the display in the upper lefthand part of the front panel has suddenly gone black! The machine works otherwise. I have disconnected the cables inside and sprayed with an electronics...

There are a number of possibilities here:

1) Power to the display is missing (check the power suppy and the pins of the display itself for poor/broken solder connections).
2) Display driver IC defective
3) Main CPU not sending info to display IC.

Were there any other symptoms prior to the display stopping? If not, check for the connections at the display itself first and update this with the results. I'll look up the service manual in the meantime to check for other posibilities.

Your inverter or backlight need to be replaced those are the main components that light up the display.

The wired keyboard backlight turnes off too quickly

You would need to go into the Setting Menu and find the Backlight or Power setting to lengthen the display and keypad backlight times. Just know that your battery life will decrease the higher the settings especially since it is a VGA screen.

A really dim display like you're describing is most likely a backlight problem.  If your inverter went bad you wouldn't have any display at all.  you need to get your backlight changed.
