Kindle screen is getting dimmer. Hard to read even with light built into the cover.

I'd call Amazon's Kindle support.

Are you sure it's the screen getting dimmer and not the light? E-ink screens (which I'm assuming you have, since you mention the cover with the built-in light) don't generally get "dimmer." Put it under a nice bright lightbulb and see how it looks.

Go to the top of your screen and touch that little cogwheel in the upper right corner. A ribbon of choices will appear . it lists locked, volume, brightness, wifi... touch brightness a little grey line should appear below it. The line will have a color bar and a dot to show how bright it is set. Just slide the dot to the right and see if the screen brighten's up. A similar slide will control your volume if you are listening to sound.
If that does not work call Amazon.

If the Kindle is in a lighted cover, then I'm guessing it is NOT a Kindle Fire. What you are describing is for the Fire, not the many other eInk Kindles.

The Kindle is not lit, so not sure how it gets "dimmer". Could it be that the light is what is getting dimmer? How does the Kindle look in the sunlight? Perhaps a bit more detail would help.

I wonder if by getting dimmer he means the screen is fading and losing contrast. I haven't seen an e-ink screen do that but it does sound plausible.

Maybe. I was wondering the same thing. Perhaps the OP will pop back in and give us a little more info on what they are seeing.
