Backlighting switch
The backlighting switch is located on the left side of your console. When turned on, contrast on the
display screen is increased due to lighting of the background. Use this switch when you are having trouble
seeing the display or indicators, because of glare caused by the sun, or because the lights in the room
are dim.

If that does not work then set contrast using the menu:

open the options dialog - click here for instructions

set the contrast: - click here for instructions

I Kindly ask you to rate my service BEFORE YOU LEAVE TODAY by clicking 3 or better on the STAR RATING SYSTEM at the top of your page. If you don't see it please let me know.

Please be aware that this rating is for the quality of my response, not a rating for the overall experience you have had on this site as this rating reflects on me not on the site.

Rating me will not in any way affect the amount you agreed to pay for the question. This will also allow you to get directly back to me for FREE follow up questions.

Before leaving a negative rating please discuss it with me first so I can have a chance to remedy the issue.

TIPS are not expected but are GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Thank you!
