FerrareXP has the answer, I tried it and I couldn't see anything and
gave it an inappropriate. Then I noticed the clear plastic sticker over the screen perhaps there for protection in shipping, I removed the sticker and could easily see the screen holding it near a bright light source as FerrariXP suggested.

I put the sticker back on for my own protection for after I fix the problem

Thanks FerrariXP Sorry I doubted you at first. Don

Unfortunately, the only way to change this is through menu options. Try going into a very well lit room, and then do the following: Menu-->settings-->display settings-->backlight

Dark screen


Sounds like it is the backlight that has gone. New screens are a lot more reasonable cost option now and they tend to have the backlight incorporated into them. Replacing a backlight is not a simple procedure by any means. If you're not sure about changing components yourself then take it to a repair shop.

    To check the Backlight Auto-Off setting:
    1. From the XMB™ menu, go to icn_settings.gif (Settings) > [Power Settings] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    2. Highlight [Backlight Auto-Off] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    3. Select a time interval and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button to save. Select OFF if you wish to disable this feature.

  • Check the Auto Sleep setting
    If the Auto Sleep setting is turned ON, the screen will turn dark after a set period of time. Press any button to turn the screen back on.
    To check the Auto Sleep setting:
    1. From the XMB™ menu, go to icn_settings.gif (Settings) > [Power Settings] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    2. Highlight [Auto Sleep] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.

No backlight


A couple things to try:

1st check the backlight settings

Turn on Backlighting and Control Brightness To use your device in dark environments, enable the automatic backlighting feature:
  1. From the Jump screen, press MENU t02003-15.gif then select Settings > Battery & Display.

  2. In the second group box, select the Turn on backlight when using device check box.

  3. Highlight, then select the Brightness slider to open it for editing. Roll the TRACKBALL right to increase brightness; roll the TRACKBALL left to decrease brightness. After you've made the adjustment, press the TRACKBALL to exit edit mode. t02007-55.jpg

  4. Select the length of time you want backlighting to stay on from the Turn off after pop-up menu.

  5. To use the device's light meter while the backlight is on, select the Use ambient light sensor check box.

  6. Press JUMP t02003-14.gif to return to the Jump screen and save your setting.
Now, when you press any button or key, or flip open the screen, backlighting will turn on for the set amount of time. Note that as long as you press a key or button before the set time elapses, the backlight will stay on.
Tips:
  • Even if you have not selected automatic backlighting, you can turn on backlighting at any time by pressing MENU t02003-15.gif + JUMP t02003-14.gif . The backlight will remain on for the time specified in the Backlight Turn off after pop-up menu.

  • When in key guard mode, you can turn on the backlight by pressing the RIGHT SHOULDER t02003-66.gif button.
If it still does not work, then you can try resetting the flex cable to the lcd.

Reseat the SidekickFlex cable

If that doesn't fix it then a new lcd assy will take care of the issue. they run about 45 dollars on ebay.

Have you tried checking the Battery and Display settings from the main screen Settings menu? There is an option to enable or disable the backlight, as well as set the brightness.

There is also a setting called "Use ambient light sensor", which sets the backlight and keyboard light to only turn on if it is dark when you are using it.
