Digital speedo and display very dim on z750

Sounds like you have a faulty connector/wiring to the display unit, most likely a bad connector (known as a dry joint) leading from the ECU junction relay box. Dry joints/circuits a sensitive to vibration!
Getting the wiring checked by an auto electrician to make sure where the fault is actually in the wiring.
If the fault is a dry joint in the wiring, re-soldering the connector will fix the fault.
If the fault is a bad wire, replacement of the wire will fix the fault.
If the fault is a dry circuit in the display unit, replacement of unit necessary(costly & worst case).
Have a full Kawasaki service manual for the bike on an USB STICK in PDF form with you, when you take the bike to the auto electrician, it will help them find the fault quicker & cheaper.
If you haven't got a full service manual, you can download PDF file from the internet, the cost very minimal compared to a printed manual.
When I had my problem with the electrics on my Z750S, the fault was with the connectors(dry joints) and re-soldering them solved the issue!
Hope this helps

Display dim after battery died

you should first have the alternator tested. any auto parts store will test your alternator and battery for free. Also you should remove the battery cables and clean them with a battery terminal cleaner. sometimes a loose or dirty connection at the cables will cause the battery not to charge properly.

Reset brightness control

You didn't supply your Make, Model of computer or your OS? The best I can do is give a general idea. Open Control Panel, Power Options, Change to High Performance, open Advanced power settings, adjust Dim Display 100%, plugged in. Your laptop software defaults to dim the display on battery power to conserve battery life.
