If the amplitude (see: of the BL
drive could be decreased the intensity would change but I don't know how the
lifetime changes. One could probably hack the hardware and include a
potentiometer at the right place and somehow play with the drive voltage. It
would probably be possible to increase the brightness of a week or worn BL
this way too, within physical limits of course :-)
We used to increase the brightness of our old TV in the past this way and
increased the heater voltage by adding a few more wire turns around the
transformer core. But this was about 20 years ago...
