Is the brightness of the Cab2 display adjustable?

I just received my 990 yesterday and spent some time reading, watching YouTube videos and loading engine info etc. Two questions I can’t find answers for.

The number pad portion of the display is so dim, I can’t see the symbols. The upper display is fine. Are the displays adjustable? 

I was able to load my TMCC steamer into the system just fine. Engine initially runs at a slow pace, but can’t seem to speed it up with the red control wheel. Within a period of 2 minutes or so it is to run even slower. Eventually it just barely creeps along. I tried “boost”, adjusted braking slide, etc. No joy.

When I disconnect the Command base and go back to conventional, the engine is fine. I thought maybe if I clear engine out of the system and start over, that might work. I also tried changing to  Cab1 mode instead of TMCC with no luck. 

Any help please?

Just got mine last week. You can independently adjust the contrast of both your display screen and keypad but I am not sure of the brightness. See CTC info, pages 48 and 49 of the manual. I have no idea about your other issue.

Thanks BobbyD, I was able to correct the situation by clearing the system and reentering to engine again. Now everything is functioning properly.

I can see why everyone says the Legacy system is complicated, or “stick to Cab1”, but I think once you learn the Legacy system it does offer a lot. Like anything new, you just have to make the effort. It’s almost ...as complicated as the wife’s treadmill in the basement 😝🥴
