You haven't mentioned nothing about its other functions. Does it loads CD, plays it and so one. Only mentioned about its back face plate backlights only. If this is the only trouble, that is, the backlight only not lights up, it can be repaired. Not even back light, most of the faults can be repaired. Backlight is produced by lighting up LED [Light Emitting Diode]. It may fail as if a bulb fails. It can be replaced. If problem is not this much, and more, inform me by Fixya. OK.

How do I change the date on my sony xr c5100 face plate?

Go to this site. Dont click is in big letters-leave it alone.
Down to the right (Under the word DOWNLOAD in the green box) are pages you can see and when you roll your mouse over them, they say what page of the manual they are. You want Page 5. Click it and see what to do. Dont know if you can print it and I know you cant save it but you could do a PRINT SCREEN and then go to your WORD program in Accessories
on your computer and Paste. This will put the screen shot in Word and you can then save and print it.
Good is the link.

It depends whereabouts in the world you are
