    Screen Light Issues

    Advertisement



    I have a Perl 8100 (4.2.0.71) and the auto-lighting scheme is truly poor. In direct sunlight, the light does not come on and the screen is drowned by the external light. This makes the peal useless outside.

    Things I have tried:
    Options-Screen/Keyboard - some models have an 'auto brightness' switch; this BB does not.
    BBLight - installed and it does not work on this model; there is no change.

    Any ideas on how to force the light to come on? I would prefer to have it on all the time and would settle for pressing a button & making it come on like my old 7780.

    Thanks.

    elomon, welcome to the stacks. the only way to regain control over your backlight is to upgrade your os to 4.2.1.66 this os has a control over autodim, some people found the os a little buggy, read the threads about it beforehand.
    hope this helped ya a little
    Been a long while since last login. Sorry all, adjusting to a new life is great and hell at the same time!!

    i'm sure it's just me, but i bricked my 8100 twice after upgrading to 4.2.1.66. i'm sure it's an incompatibility with a 3rd party app i have. so, i've uninstalled everything except a couple of themes, and the google services. and, i've left my os at 4.2.0.64. i'm just sayin', is all...
