In addition, not that the left side of TID pic above is dark - this is a sign the backlight bulb that side is blown, easy to replace. Same with the right of the earlier type MID above. Both these have to backlight bulbs. Later type MIDs have 4 backlight bulbs.

The CCRT display above is shown outside of its housing, and 2 of the 3 backlight bulbs are blown.

The GID also take 3 backlight bulbs, but the CID uses a properly LCD style tube, which is not replacable.
