On newer stereos, you might have to experiment with the "panel" wire.

I just installed a VR3, and discovered that the more voltage on the "panel" wire, the dimmer the display.

With no connection, you get full (daytime) brightness. With full voltage, you blank the display.

I wired mine up to the car's instrument lights through a 10Kohm trim resistor so I could adjust the "night" intensity. But if I dim the car's instrument lights, the stereo gets brighter. Oops.

Older car -- I can't just flip a software bit. ;)

But I gather a lot of new stereos are like this. The display on my (factory) stereo in the Mitsu dims a fixed amount when the lights come on, but doesn't adjust with the car's instrument dimmer.

Display panel dim


The display on my cooker started to dim until it finally went dark over a few weeks. Although a different make, I replaced the panel and everything is now fine. I was amazed how bright the new display was so it must have been dimming over a long period.

How do i replace burned out lightbulb in my in my cambridge soundworks cd - 740 clock radio ?


I believe the problem is either a faulty light sensor the unit has to dim the display when the lights dim since it was designed for bedroom use with alrms and snooze button. or it is simply a failure in the circuit that drives the LCDs. Mine has been dim for a long time but I can still see just enough to adjust the sound settings. I tune and set stations by sound. so the display has not been an issue since we do not use it for a clock or alarm. I doubt there is a fix for the dim display.

Dim display on Cambridge Soundworks 88CD


I can't find a manual for this but my guess would be there is a setting for the Display to dim it at all times unless you touch a control.

The cds won't play. Once you press play, the cd


Sounds like you have a powre supply issue. It could also be a display issue but if the display is working OK before you hit play I wouldn't think so. When you hit play does the display dim? If it does then the power supply is the problem. If not then the control board has a problem. Let me know how you make out.
