Radio Light / Not Pixels

Is there a small light bulb in the radio?
The area near 1 + 2 does not have a backlight.
You can see the pixels clearly, but not as bright as the rest of the radio.

TIA

Took possession of a '98 528i on May 12, 2009.
Still can't take the grin off my face!

all LCD's need a backlight to operate. I f you are experiencing that, it's possible the backlight has partial failure
