@pyzdek: Please post the model number of the display. There are many products that AcuRite has. Maybe someone that has the same model will be able to assist if there is some type of control for brightness on your model.

I looked that model up. I do not have it. It shows that it's auto-dimming based on time of day (which is weird). If it was like my tablet, I took a q-tip with rubbing alcohol and cleaned that sensor that detects light. If you put your hand over that sensor - for about 10-20 seconds, does it dim? (it should) -BUT given that this display only dims based on time of day, it may not work that way. If not, there may be a problem with the display.

The manual can be found here:
https://www.acurite.com/media/manuals/02064C-instructions.pdf

Page 10 has the "display backlight settings".

I'll let someone else respond since I do not have that display. Hope that helps!
