    The laptop in question is a Panasonic Toughbook CF52; is there any way the contrast can be improved, or is it a replace screen job? Assuming spares are available.

    I've not seen a laptop screen fail but the LCD control panel on my printer faded toward white until it was quite impossible to read and the touch-what-you-can't-see became impossible. So I suspect a lack of contrast at limit of the controls is an indication that the screen is at the end of days, provided you haven't accidentally wound the brightness up. My guess would be cheaper to replace the computer than the screen but a small computer repair shop would tell you better.

    Looks like spares are available and instruction videos on youtube. Looks fairly fiddly though.....maybe ask a local mobile phone or computer repair place for a quote?

    What operating system are you using?

    Replacing the screen isn't difficult but does require the right tools so, unless you have said tools, I'd go along with that.

    Win 7 Pro 64 bit, same as I have on my PCs, no hassles with updates, does all I need, "taint broke why fix it"
    Looking on line, replacement refurbs around £400-£500.
    Tthere appear to be 4 different screen types, varying in backlighting and resolution - most places show nil stocks
