    Question Dimming Screen on 8830

    Advertisement



    I tried to do a search but came up with nothing. Here's whats happening, my screen will be a full brightness for maybe a minute or so and then will dim. It wont go completely black but will dim to about 50 to 75% of the brightness it was before. Then, after about 30 seconds or so, it will come back to full brightness.

    Is this a setting problem or an lcd issue? Or is this just normal for blackberries? I have an lcd TV and it will do that sometimes too.

    That has got be one of the most annoying options available- it just makes it harder to read your emails when it dims down. Does anyone use?

    This has been annoying me since I got the BB back in October.
    Can someone explain how it's supposed to work?
    If I say no, I see that it never dims, it just stays bright.
    What supposed to happen when it's set to off?

    It is supposed to make it easier on the ryees in certain lighting situations. I do not use it all the time but it does save on battery life. If you turn it off it will stay on whatever brightness setting you choose. You can go into your backlight options and choose what percent brightness you want so it is not 100 percent and it will stay at that level
