Hello Simon,

Yes your'e right, the screen does have a bulb. Its reffered to as the ' backlight ' and from what you describe unfortunatly is sounds like yours has gone.
This light is somewhat integral to the screen so its more reasonable to change the whole screen rather than just the light.
There are other possible causes for the light not to be on as special circuits are employed to light up the screen. If these circuits are damaged in your device then its unlikely it will be economical to repair them.
I do hope this helps you or at least helps you to decide how to procede.
Good luck

Can reading in dim light damage your eyes?


Reading in darkly lit rooms won't cause actual damage to your eyes, but might strain them and make you feel more tired. It's much better to read in better lighting and to take regular breaks.

TOMTOM GO 300 THe LCD screen won't light up.


Screens that don't light up are usually caused by the bulb going ( called " The Backlight " ). Unfortunatly , on a TomTom it is intergral with the screen so cannot be replaced seperatly. You can only replace the whole screen. There are other possiblities for the screen not lighting such as the ribbon cable that goes to the screen might not be quite plugged in right or theres a break in that ribbon cable + other reasons that become less likely as we go down the list. A simple test with a miltimeter by someone with knowledge of tomtoms will prove or disprove the backlight working and you should then know where you stand. Good luck.
