Follow this link for the manual That model does not have the ability to turn backlight on or off, your display may be on it's way out. Try resetting it first though, refer to page 66 of manual. Good Luck

The backlight to the display no longer works. The "bulb" seems to be burned out. Is this going to be a cost-effective repair...?

The backlight in your scanner is an 8volt bulb, but your scanner is 10 years old, and the exact replacement is no longer carried by radio Shack. You can, however, replace it with a 6volt 25ma bulb, Radio Shack catalog number 272-1140. Replacing it is fairly simple if you're at all handy with electronics and a soldering iron. Contact your local RS to purchase or order the bulb, and I'm certain that they can have it installed if you're not up to trying it yourself.

Very dim light on my pro 2052.

Display or backlight? If it's the backlight, you need to replace one solder-in bulb. Radio Shack part number 272-114 (5v, 25mA) will work. If it's the dispay you need to contact the Shack for a replacement.

This is a new scanner for me it was bought used

Sorry, but I just spent about 30 minutes researching the backlight on your scanner -- and I came up with nothing. Your best bet would be to carry the scanner into your local Radio Shack store and lay the problem in their laps. They should be able to either locate and sell you the required lamp(s) or at least refer to you to a local repair source.

I hope this helps.
