Sounds like the back lighting of the LCD screen is faulty. Is it a new unit - take it back. You might try the brightness and contrast controls and turn them up. If that doesn't help it needs to be repaired.
If it uses the same technology as a laptop screen, there is 2 backlights behind the screen, they are like very thin fluorescent tubes (cold cathode) and there is a power supply that these use. It may have gone out like many PC's bad displays. I think it is due for replacement or an operation if you are skilled enough. Might just be an unseated ribbon cable which can be fixed by yourself.
