Philips dcb152 05 display is very dim it's almost un-noticable. Is there anything i can do to make it brighter

yes. You can always use the contrast and brightness tabs in the monitor.

Go to the MENU of the monitor by pressing a button(prob it should on a side of the monitor).

Choose brightness and then increase it.

My calculator ti-84 plus is having problems. When i turn it on it will turn off quickly by itself. and while its on i try to click on any botton and it doesnt show the number etc

It could be that the main batteries are drained and are no longer able to supply power to the calculator. Replace the AA batteries with a fresh set. After replacing the batteries the display may become too dark or too dim. To set the correct contrast
Press [2nd] key and release it.
Press and maintain pressure on UpArrow to increase contrast (darken screen), OR on DownArrow to decrease it (lighten screen). If you overshoot your intented contrast you can revert the processs.

I have new batteries in it and the screen is still extremely dim and sometimes won't even turn on.

Try adjusting the screen contrast. Press and hold the ON key and press the + key to increase the contrast. If you go too far, repeat the process with the ON and - keys.

Dim display on laptop LCD screen

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.

Digital clock display read out is EXTREMELY dim even after adjusting brightness and contrast controls

Hello Jinx55,
the problem is the display unit itself or the cable that goes from the display to the electronic (Most likely the dispaly itself).
The display will need to be replaced. You can contact Miele directly at

My calculator can not be switched on ..If I press the on button I can see any display ..I tried changing the four batteries. I havent used it for a while.

If it is just a matter of the screen being too dim, you can actually increase the contrast.

  1. Turn calculator ON
  2. Press [MENU] even if you do not see anything
  3. Press [ALPHA][COS] sequence to access the letter E.
  4. Press repeatedly the Right Arrow till the contrast is adequate.

Ti84 plus, screen problem

  1. Press and release the gold [2nd] button. Verify that the blinking up arrow appears in the display.
  2. Press and hold the blue up or down arrow key to increase or decrease contrast, until the display is to your liking. Be alert: the display will change quickly.
The calculator will remember your contrast setting; you don’t have to adjust it every time you turn the calculator on.
