Are saying you can't read the screen at night, or is it hard to read the screen anytime?
If you tap the power key, you should here a beep and the screen should get brighter. If you hear the beep and there is no light, then the internal light has failed.
If you can't read the screen in normal light conditions try viewing it under a bright light at various angles. You may notice that the screen is just barely visible. If this is the case you may be able to fix the problem by adjusting the contrast. Try tapping bthe power key and then tap the right or left side of the track pad. It may take several taps to see the results. If left or right doesn't work, try up or down.

Not enough info to diagnose your problem. It sounds like a networking problem. I couldn't find a manual for the sam-st module so I'm not sure how you have it hooked up. Typically with these devices only one would be hooked up to the SONAR module, and it would then share the data with the other display via an ethernet or NMEA2000 network. The erratic behavior of your bluewater could be due to some sort conflict with the current coming from the GlobalMap2000. Do you get the same problem when the 2000 is turned off? Have you tried running the GlobalMap2000 with the bluewater turned off?

Where do you use your boat?
There are so many variables it's hard to fit it all here, but there are some excellent tutorials on the Lowrance website. The most important thing is to pick the right frequency, for the depth of the water. (200khz for less than 70', and 50 khz for greater depths). Depending on how serious you are about fishing, there are a lot of extras that you may never use. The key is to figure out which features will help you the most and forget about the rest.

It's common for SONAR to lose contact with the bottom at high speeds. The better the transducer installation, the faster you can go. Turbulence and bubbles will cause the SONAR to drop out. Lowrance's transducer installation guide explains it very clearly.
