Pentax K-r viewfinder

Is there any way to increase the brightness of the information line (aperture, shutter speed, ISO etc.) at the bottom in the (optical) viewfinder in capture (shooting) mode on the K-r ? If so, how? I tried increasing the brightness of the monitor in desperation but that had no effect. Thanks for any help.

Unfortunately, there isn't. But if the text appears dim, perhaps there's a defect in the display?
