If you rotate the knob the backlight on the LCD panel comes on for a few seconds. Also, if you have the humidifier on, there's an indicator light for that.

there is a setting for that. its called humidifier led backlight. it should be on. if you push the on button or turn the knob and it don't come on you probably have it off in your clinician settings. if it is on but the light don't come on the machine may be defective.

The humidifier led backlight works, its the LCD screen that I'm talking about.
