I've adjusted the contrast but still, I can only use the MP2100 with the backlight on. I was not sure if that is normal or if I need to have it serviced. It works fine every other way. I have 2 MP2100 and they both have the dim screen.

I don't think anybody mentioned it, but it seems that most screen
protectors for the MP2K series cut down on contrast, thus
necessitating the use of the backlight. I have noticed that at those
times my Newt isn't wearing a screen protector, I need the backlight
less--but I seldom do that, so I use the backlight most of the time.
