Customer Question

The display has gone very dim. Can it be repaired. I have electronice experience down to component level if I know what to replace and where.
JA: What's the make/model number of your stereo? How old is it?
Customer: Model RX-V373 purchased about December 2012
JA: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I think it just slowly went dim. Can barely see display at this point. Don't think it is in eco mode, either.
JA: Anything else you want the theater expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I'd like to fix it myself if possible. Think it may be a current limiting resistor in display circuit has increased in value due to heat but need specifics from you. My guess.

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, please confirm; are you considering a component level DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach?

If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter and even perhaps a soldering iron?

Perhaps more importantly, would you be comfortable working on the inside circuitry? ...LIVE?
