Going to sound stupid. Have you charge it or plug it in for a few minutes then turn it on.

Do you use a good lamp to shine on the screen?

It does not light the screen itself

Sorry to hear about the problem. Sounds like a defective screen. Probably an electrical fault which is keeping the screen from separating the tonal shades. Take it back.
