Your problem is a defective screen and will require a physical presence of a tech to fix your issue.You will have to send it back to apple.Anyways here are few steps that you could try if it doesn't help then you will have to get it repaired:

1)Try turning the auto brightness to OFF.Check if your screen is now back to viewable level.Proceed to stpe 2 if this doesn't work.
2)Make sure the batter is fully charged.If it is then proceed to step 3.
3)Put a little pressure on the back and bottom right corner and the device would usually correct itself for a while.But this is not a permanent solution.

If the above steps fail then your last option is to get it repaired or replaced by apple if it is under warranty.

My 8gig itouch screen is dark it still works but the screen is so dark i can barely see it i have the brightness up all the way

then the problem is the LCD of your device. Don't keep pressing too hard on the screen, it might have been damaged. And, as much as possible, don't let it get near magnetic areas...

Screen stays dark

How long have you had your computer? Mine has been doing this. The battery has died out over time, and now I think the adapter is too. It's kind of kinked near where it plugs into the computer (probably from the weight of the chord constantly being pulled down). It just gets a bad connection, a little less power, and goes dim like that. If I readjust the connection and turn off/turn back on the computer, it usually comes on bright again. But I ordered a new battery

PS2 Picture Problem

Hi MG86,

Most PS2 games are dark and auto brightness controls will casue your LCD tv to brighten up automatically in response the dark video coming from PS2 games. I suggest you get into the menu settings of your TV and find a setting that will shut off the auto picture controls.
