backlight problem on 8310
Im running the 4.5 OS and when I'm in the dark the screen goes to the backlight level i selected in the settings. When in a lit up room or outside, the backlight goes all the way up to 100%. The backlight seems to be doing the direct opposite of what it is suppose to.
Anyone else have this problem or have any solutions? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
so in a lit room/outside it goes to 100% bright, and in a dark room it dims itself?
This is what my 8310 does on 220.127.116.11 I think thats what its supposed to do.
Is it really? lol
It's just that im outside a lot and i don't want it to go all the way to 100% when outside/lit room. I was wondering if there was a way to set the max level
I havent experimented with any of the 4.5 betas but on 4.2.2 you can go into options > screen/keyboard and under backlight brightness there is an option for turning on/off automatic dim backlight. I assume this is what your looking for
didnt work...the screen brightens up when in light.

This is a standard feature with most BB's...since the screen is pretty glossy, it is designed to make viewing easier in bright lights...and when in dark rooms, dim so it won't blind you. Go to options > Screen/Keyboard > Automatically Dim Backlight = Off...
Hope this helps!
Sorry for jumping to conclusions prtank...didn't read all the way down...
Your best bet for solving this is to just keep your brightness level set to 10%...
