    I had the same problem. I did what Medinajaviersuggested (pressing the 2nd key, then pressing the up key, then pressing the 2nd key again and the down key), and it worked perfectly!! I thought I was going to have to buy another calculator!!

    Thank you soo much Medinajavier!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Adjust the contrast by pressing and releasing the [2nd] key followed by pressing and releasing the up arrow; repeat as necessary. To adjust or lighten the display, use the down arrow.

My screen is very dim


boot to the BIOS (F2 at boot) and ensure that the LCD brightness is set to 8 and then reboot, if LCD is still dim, then, check the Control point system manager display settings and see if the LCD is dimmed there.
If no change, run diags Power + D at boot to run the LCD BIST test , if the 4 colored screens are DIM during the test, then the LCD has failed and needs repplacement.

Phone display is very dim-can barely read


Well, first you will have to check your options, if you can read it enough to get in there.  You may have the backlight turned off.  If the backlight is not turned off, then you probably have a bad backlight and will have to take it to your provider to get it fixed.  Replacing a screen/backlight is not something I would attempt to do unless you are certain you know exactly what you are doing as you can render the phone completely useless.

My laptop screen is very dim, cannot read or see looks faded


Try using the brightness controls on your keyboard to brighten the screen. If that doesn't work then that means either the lcd or the inverter has gone bad.

LCD goes dim within 1-2 minutes


You could have a bad "inverter" or flourescent backlight tube, or a problem in your power supply.The only way to isolate the problem is to check each component in sequence.If your hard disk and DVD / CD drive are still working when your screen goes dark, then I'd say it's the "inverter". You'll have to take it to a repair shop.

Screen is dim


Try looking for a function key (usually used by holding down the Fn key and then pressing one of the "F" key at the top) the key will be marked with a brightness indicator.

Is your screen only dim when running off the battery is it dim when running when the charger is plugged in as well. If it is only dim when the laptop is running on battery then this may be caused by a setting in Power Options which is located in Control Panel (that is if your running Windows). In Power Options look for settings about running on AC Power and running on Battery power.
