Well, I'll be darned, that was all it was. I started the car, turned the headlights on, and turned that instrument panel lighting adjustment knob all the way clockwise and I could see the LCD screen clearly again. Now that I could see the screen I went into settings and found the display had been set to "night" and that lighting adjustment knob was apparently set down to lowest lighting.
I didn't do it! I haven't been into settings for several months and I first noticed the very dim screen Monday. And I rarely drive at night so I would never set it that way. I live alone so no one else got into the settings. All I can think of is that my android phone is paired via Bluetooth and my phone was buggy last week, any app associated with Google would immediately crash, even my TV guide app would crash. It healed itself over the weekend, I guess thru a Google update. Sounds farfetched, but either that or my CX-3 software has a mind of its own.
Well, all's well that ends well, now I don't have to pay more for a 7" LCD screen than I paid for my 65" 4k TV.
