Only by fitting brighter backlight, but this is normally not that easy, depending on the size. Some backlights are part of the LCD assembly, on smaller units they are sometimes side mounted. The contrast on an LCD is usually adjustable - there may be a small potentiometer on it that will adjust the contrast, that may improve matters.

Samsung LN46C600F3F has audio but no video

Similar thing had happened with me. Solution: Probability: 1 Start any familiar movie on DVD/Blueray, and press pause, now go near tv and flash torch light on and off on screen. you will come to identify- 'that familiar scene' paused, of course very faint and un-lit. If you can see faint image then cause of problem is that choke coil giving power to drinking-straw like tubelight is burnt. (Do you remember 4feet fluorescent tubelight with a very heavy metal encased five inch block sitting in the middle?) that block is choke coil. LCD TVs have similar tiny slim tube rods inside with electronic choke)

Hello, I wish somehow I do not "bother" but I have already approached other than the producer himself, as various vendors and suppliers but nobody knows me or just advice. These are my damaged DVD 2 DIN radio with with 7 "LCD touch-screen displays tipping, which I unfortunately" been damaged "in a car accident. Autorá*** is almost functionally while, but it does not control the touch, cracked the top covering e - touch surface, but can be seen and is otherwise good equipment - everything can be operated by remote control, and therefore only the GPS function, which is equipped with a radio that is thus ineligible to work. This is the type SMR 265, produced in Guangdong, China. LCD display is proven product fa Samsung marked CY / CVBS / AV: 320x240. dealer in Bohemia, of course, rejected "garančku" for mechanical failure - even though I assured him that I am aware of loss guarantees, I just wanted to "get a replacement LCD display. So Gentlemen - if you allow appeals to you and - you know at least advise me how I would be arriving to the replacement displays? In one of the responses to the Chinese trader I have received a reply that the smallest quantity they are willing to send 500 copies, sure you like what is ...... but (hey). I only strange, it is still very neozvali from Samsung - probably have spoiled mail addresses. If you can find some that time, although I know it again so much you have -- and if you can - talk to me, eventually., help with the repair - I thank you in advance - the greeting Schudich Miro, Slovakia

My peugeot 206 center consul radio display is so dull i cant read it..its very faint but at a certain angle i can see it so it still working please

Bit late but...
Its a poor connection between the pins that suplly power to the bulbs and the circut board.
Take the whole section apart, take the circuit board off the white plastic holder and solder 'blobs on the connections on the board, above and below the locating holes.
stick it back together and should stay lit now!
