The part you need is called a CCFL Backlight. Basically, there are lights in the screen that back-light/illuminate the display. Over time it burns out and you are left with a dim and completely dull display. These are a pain to replace and expensive when bought from the manufacturer. But this site has a break down with dis-assembly instructions...if you want to try it.
I am sure that your BACKLIGHT is dead...Have someone or a tech take a look at it. The problem can be the backlight or the inverter itself... But most likely it's the backlight that goes out. You might be better of getting the LCD screen replace... Unless you find the backlight for that laptop model...
But first, play around with the BRIGHTNESS settings, make sure it's not on VERY LOW...
I would bet on a failed FL Inverter board which is the board that runs the backlight.
However, if your LCD is RED before it goes dark your backlight has failed. Given the age of the machine you will probably have to get parts from ebay.
If you can tell me the part number of the machine (on the serial number sticker) - I can look up what inverter or LCD you need - there are several different screens the 6000 series uses that are NOT cross compatible.
