Select on the keypad the 'Fn' button, keep it pressed then normally on the lower right of the keyboard there will be keys marked with as olid star shape or an empty* shape or similair, while pressing the Fn key press one of the star iconed keys to up the brightness.

If still dark then the backlight on the screen needs replacing by a qualified repair shop
