You LCD screen cable may have come loose on the inside. This happens sometimes if gets dropped.

You will need to disassemble and check it out, Reseat as necessary. If it is seated you may need a new screen. Ebay is your friend on this one.

Search for Torx screwdrivers and sidekick II screen.

I can not find out how to turn my screen brighter like i can t see my screen in the dark but i can see my keyboard

What you are describing is the backlight is burned out. Th eonly way to fix this is to replace the scree.

The best place to look is on ebay. They show up on there from time to time.

Another option is to pick up another ID with a good screen but other problems. They are easy to switch screens. 2 screws T6 torx

Here is a guide for the sidekick 32_bing.gif but the procedure is the same

If you do buy one from eBay, make sure that the LCD2_bing.gif is good and the backlight works. Ask the seller

I hope that helps you out
