SOURCE: The display quit working. Mashing the dimmer

Is this just a display problem (otherwise functional) or is it DEAD?

If the latter...

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Why is my Bose radio is too dim?


The Bose Wave Radio has two brightness levels: Bright Hi (with a range of 8-15, and default of 10) and Bright Lo (1-8, default 4). The radio automatically goes from Hi to Lo when a room is darkened so the display doesn't interfere with sleep.
On recent models you can reset the defaults to make the display brighter or dimmer in both Hi and Lo levels.
1. Press and hold the Alarm Setup (Menu) button on your remote until -setup menu- appears in the display.
2. Then press the Tune/MP3 button until Bright Hi- appears. Use the Time - or Time + buttons to change the settings.
3. Go to Bright Lo- and adjust that setting too if necessary.
4. Press Alarm Setup (Menu) again to exit setup, or simply wait 10 seconds.
You're done! Note that if you set both Hi and Lo to 8, the brightness will stay the same all day and night.

Sharp comfort touch air conditioner screen doesnt show settings and buttons wont work after cleaning. help its hot!!!!!


Switch off the unit at the isolator or fuse box. Leave off for 10 mins to reset. When powering up again and it still wont work, check your remote control batteries are good. Also confirm you haven't "blanked out" the display. Some controls have a display or LED function which blanks out the display so that the lights are not bright at night time. (For bedrooms so that the light doesn't keep you awake) Also check that you have not pressed a "child lockout button" This will stop anything ..

Simple problem. The clock display on the Motorola DCX3501-M is very bright and is located in our bedroom. Its like trying to sleep with a 40 watt light turned on all night. Is there a way to dim the...


From "asvforum"...note this may require firmware upgrade of the device in order for the dim functionality to be present:

"With the unit currently powered on and the TV powered on, press POWER OFF and then press MENU. You'll then be presented with the "hardware setup menu" where you can set things like "native" output resolution vs. fixed output resolution, etc.

I believe that there is now a "display brightness" setting in this menu.

Of course I could also be wrong, and maybe this display brightness adjustment is just part of the "user configuration" setup menu. With the unit powered on, press MENU twice to get the main menu. Navigate to the Setup button and push OK. Navigate to Cable Box setup button and push OK. If the display brightness setting is in this "user configuration" setup menu, it should be seen somewhere in here.

But I think I remember reading that it was in the first "hardware setup menu".

Hi My screen is really dark when inside night pictures. I have tried to increase brightness.But can't adjust. Can you help plse ?


The set may have an ambient light detector - if so then the set up options will allow you to vary the screen brightness - a simple check to find out if this could be the problem would be to display an image during the day then if possible close the blinda and make the room dark - alternatviley do the same at night then switch the room lights on and off and see if the brightness changes.

Radio display is not bright


Press and hold alarm time for about a second, then press your tune/playlist button until your bright hi or bright lo choices display, once you chose which lighting you want, do not press anything else. It will set to your last selection.

Dim Screen on the 2001 Toyota Prius


Yes the screen dims automatically when the lights are on to suit night driving. I am not specifically familiar with the 01 model, however on my 08 model, the display brightness is also manually adjustable via a button located below and to the right of the display. The button is marked with a series of short lines assembled in an arc. Hope this helps.
