Screen is too dark to see

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have a 2021 23 LSV and when we went out today the small screen is so dimmed that you can’t really see much of anything, I tried to find the brightness setting but didn’t have any luck. We didn’t change any of the settings when we were out the time before. I’ll call the dealer tomorrow but figured I would ask here and see if anyone had an easy fix. Any thoughts?

There is an auto-dimmer and backlighting adjustment in the settings.  Just like @ahopkinsVTXmentioned, there is a light sensor on the dash for the auto-dim feature.  Select System Settings, then Backlighting.  You can turn the backlight source to Sensor or Manual.  There is also a day and night backlight setting bar.

Thanks for the comments! Nothing on the dash, I actually tried covering and uncovering the sensor to see if that did anything. Unfortunately it’s so dark I can only read 2 or 3 small spots and can’t even navigate enough to get to those settings. Is there a way to reset everything without navigating on that screen? Just a FYI the bigger screen is completely normal and isn’t dimmed at all.

I’d check the connections on the back of the screens. Or that screen just went bad and you’ll need to take it to your dealer for warranty.

I’ll give that a try tomorrow and if that doesn’t work I’ll give the dealer a call, thanks for your help! Hopefully it’s an easy fix, we’ve only had the boat for about a month.
