Display Issue with Weather Station 02022

I am having major issues with the Weather Station 02022 that I purchased over the weekend from Home Depot.  I followed the instructions as outlined in the manual but the LCD display in unreadable.  The only way that it becomes darker is if you tilt the until to about a 75 degree angle.  I am sure that tilting the unit is not a requirement - as it doesn't say so in the manual.  Do I need to just take this back to Home Depot?  Extremely disappointed.

Hello Elizabeth,

The following instructions should help resolve any issues you are having with your display. If the issue continues, can you please provide a picture of the display? Thank you.
.
To do a pinhole reset: (THIS WILL CLEAR ALL OF YOUR HISTORY AND YOUR SETTINGS)

Please verify that you are using a name brand (Rayovac or Energizer) standard alkaline batteries in the display unit. We do not recommend using anything that is heavy duty, rechargeable, store brand or Lithium inside of the display.

- Remove all power, AC adapter and batteries from the display unit.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button, located in the battery compartment, for 20 seconds.
- Plug back into AC power and insert recommended batteries.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button for an additional 20 seconds.
- Verify that the unit has powered on and once connection has been made, attempt to set time and date.
