    Hey guys the 376c I've been using for years and still love started to fade this weekend. The backlight adjustment does not work at all. And appears to be stuck on the dimmest setting.

    I googled it but did not come up with much.

    Has anyone had this problem and figured out a fix.

    Don't know if this will help or not but if you start the unit holding down both the power and Enter buttons it will open up the diagnostic screen. The up and down arrow buttons will adjust the screen brightness (assuming it can still be adjusted.)
