LCD display is too dim

I read the thread about the LCD display not working, and a quick soldering job will fix it. My problem is that the display is too dim. I have the dash dimmer at the highest setting and still can't see the LCD if it is daytime. Dimming the dash makes it dimmer, as well, so that circuit seems to be working. Is there a way to increase the brightness? Or is it possible that I have one of the resistors loose, causing it to be dim, but not broken?

Mine is the same way. It could definitely be brighter. I hope someone has a solution.
