Dim Backlight

I'm working on a project that uses a 16X2 LCD display with backlight. I have everything working with the display and it will display my numbers correctly but the backlighting is very dim. Can hardly even notice it is on. Is there a way to make this brighter or have I done something wrong with the wiring of my LCD. Thanks for any help.

Share your schematic and show us a good image of the wiring.

You could have a faulty display.
