Last week I was out in the dark for the 1st time in a while and could not get the back-light on my 1623 to work. All of the menu buttons were lit just not the screen. I tried to switch from off-hi-low in set-up (panel dimmer/page 1) but no luck. Am I missing something? Is the light replaceable? I ended up using a flashlight app on my phone to keep the display lit, but the light was distracting.

Did you try to toggle the "brilliance" button, then advance the lighting forward with the left/right menu arrow (toggling to the right?)
Short of that, I'd write FUSA Camas an email---they're quick with a response
