Both the EDU and the computer display intensity is controlled by the same sensor. The sensor is in the small hole on the computer panel. If you cover that with your finger the display will dim but there is a few second delay. The dimming is proportional not all or nothing. In any case, the displays are backlit with small incandescent lamps. If one or more of these bulbs are burned out the display is too dim to see well in the daylight. In my case there are three lamps in the EDU display. I am waiting either for a second one to burn out or for an afternoon when I have nothing better to do than to replace the lamps. The instructions for such are at http://216.78.173.63/electrical_system_folder/9000edubulbreplacement.htm. I suppose the back of the computer display would also be available if you took off the top of the dash. Hope this helps. Regards, R. Frist
