Nothing physically wrong with it as such, but it's far too dark in bright weather making it almost impossible to see. Canon suggest using the optical viewfinder instead, but this is of limited coverage and in any case the LCD is obligatory in some modes e.g. where focal point or metering is multi or off-centre.
Can you suggest anything that would even slighly improve the brightness of the screen? The camera as such is great, but I'm finding this a big disadvantage.

the image in the LCD monitor will darken in strong sunlight or bright light. This is normal occurrrence in device CCDs and does not contitute a malfunction. This image will not be recoded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded wihen shooting movies.Read you owner manual and adjust the MENU, according with your o. manual.Otherwise you must go the repair shop God bless you
It sounds that lamp in TV is weak and not throwing enough light to bright the screen for good image. How old is this TV and did you replaced its Lamp recently? If lamp has not been replaced yet or in last 2-3 years, replace it.
You will probably need to replace the LCD to fix this issue, I broke my iPod LCD and replaced it myself of eBay. The bulb you speak of is all built into the LCD and has a tape/wire that connects to the iPhone to my knowledge and if I'm wrong please feel free to correct but as far as I know its all in the LCD.
You need a new screen backlight. I was an Acer Repair guy a few years back and its definatley a physical thing. Only other possibility is the dim seetings are set to pretty much 100. If turning the brightness up which you can do from the keyboard fails call acer repairs for the part number or send it in for repair.
There is nothing wrong with your camera - It is doing what it is meant to do!
The purpose of the flashing areas is to drawn your attention to parts of the image that are over-exposed. In an ideal world nothing would ever be overexposed, but if the image has both very dark and very bright areas, the camera cannot capture both - something has to give! The flashing areas are just to let you know.
Sounds like half your backlight is not functioning. The only thing I suggest is to call the manufacturer thats listed in your user manual and see what they think it will cost to repair unless its still in warrantee. There are no user serviceable parts inside of this unit so i dont think it would be a good Idea for you to attemt to take it apart as it may be a system to dissasembly and you make tear or break on of the small flex cables. Good luck
If the LCD screen is too bright or too dark, adjust the LCD Brightness setting in the Setup Menu.
If you are shooting photos outdoors in bright light, move the joystick to the icon showing the sun over shaowed area to turn on Outdoor mode and make the LCD screen easier to see in bright light.
I think you should solve the 'washed out' LCD screen issue.
Here's a link to an accessory which might help.
I've tested it on my Olympus E10 LCD screen, (although I don't use it), and I found it very satifactory.
Hope this helps.
