    8100 trackball light problem?

    Advertisement



    Just got this and love it. However, the trackball light seems intermittent and now is off most of the time. Is this a problem or operator error? Thanks.

    Welcome to Pinstack! I believe that it has to do with the autodim, I could be wrong but that's what I have noticed. I am sure you are either running .67 or .69 os and that would be the cause. If I am wrong, someone else should be around to answer this.

    Hi and Welcome to the stacks!

    Stacey is correct. There is an auto backlight feature that turns on the light on the keys and the pearl when in dim light. I think that may be what you are seeing. If I use mine in a dark place, it lights up, in bright light, its off.

    Wow, such quick answers! Yep, I just put it under the table and the light came on. Also, I got to see the actual brightness level of the display change. *whew* I don't have to return it.

    really? My pearl is different. If I'm in low light then it goes in to the auto-dim mode and in bright light it turns off the auto-dim. Sometimes if i set it down on its back in low light it'll turn off the auto-dim and light right up! Then pciking it up again it'll dim again. I dunno...all I know is that it saves my battery. Does anyone know where that light sensor is?
