I have a Sony Betamax C7 that has been fired up after a few decades in storage - still works, but the LCD screen at the front faded and died when I started it (it was very dim to start with).
Each time I have started it since, it is a little more faded, now mostly gone. It was working fine when it went into storage - any ideas on what it might be?

Timer or Channel Display????
Could be Voltage (or IC) Driving the Display....or the Display itself.

Once you have some part numbers for piece part(s) or affected Circuit Board(s), you can search to see if any are available....or buy another Betamax (perhaps a cheap one that doesn't work completely) and swap parts out of it.....

BTW: Front Panel Display(s) are NOT among the many known problems in C7:

And perhaps you would be better off not worrying about the fading display and spin off some DVD or BD Recordings so you can junk the problematic Betamax entirely....
