Customer Question
Is there any way...

Is there any way that I can make the display brighter on our RC-700 clock radio?

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had your RC-700?

About 2 years

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

Nothing - on the user instructions, there is a "Hi-Lo" switch on the RC-7290 model, but no mention of this ability for the RC-700.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Nothing that I can think of.

On the left hand side of the radio, you should see a HIGH/LOW switch for the brightness.

Set it to LOW and that is the lowest it will go.
