The caller ID screen is so faint I can't read it. Is there a way to brighten it or change the contrast so I can read it?

. Press and hold the dial/menu button until "Options Menu" is shown in the display.
2. Use the up/down buttons to scroll through the options below, and press the dial/menu
button to select the desired option you wish to set:
• Set Language
• Local Area Code
• Set Time/Date
• Set Flash Time
• LED Contrast
• Set Tone/Pulse
• Exit Options
3. Use the up/down buttons to adjust the setting, and press the dial/menu button to confirm
and set.
NOTE: It is important to set the Area code so that the telephone can distinguish local or long
distance calls when dialing from the Caller ID list.
NOTE: Time and Date will automatically set when you recieve the first or second Caller ID

The reading on the adjustable display is all blue squares and unreadable ???

Sounds like the contrast on the screen is turned all the way up. To adjust the contrast, press feature *7 and a number between 1-9 to adjust the contrast level.Press the Rls key when finished.

If you haven't already tried it, unplug the phone, press a couple of buttons, then plug it back in so it resets. If the boxes still appear, try adjusting the display contrast. Press Feature-*-7 to get to contrast setting and then press 6 or 7 to set mid-range contrast.

Display contrast - too dark

You should be able to adjust LCD contrast when phone is idle, just use the up/down arrow button to adjust it (don't go off-hook). If you have background music set, the above procedure will adjust the music volume instead. You can turn Background music on and off by pressing <Feature>,2,6 when your phone is idle. Alternatively, you may press <Speaker> 6,0,2 and then use the UP/Down arrow key to adjust LCD contrast.

Difficulty reading screen

As an FYI....The arrow keys control many things,
If not in use, they control the contrast.
If ringing, it adjusts ringing.
when using handset or speaker, it adjusts volume.

Adjusting contrast on phone

to adjust the contrast, you have to hit the store button, then the arrow keys, which are the two little keys next to the caller id screen. you will then scroll thru the menu. it will eventually come to the contrast. then you use the arrow keys to move it to a darker shade. and hit store again, to store it.
