Screen Brightness Control

Postby thom » Thu Aug 12, 2010 5:35 pm

I am posting this here as well, I can't get the screen to brighten.

I just got Puppy 4.3.2 installed and as it was booting it dimmed the screen and I am unable to get it back to 100%.

Anyone have any ideas? It's stuck in this mode, and when I boot off a USB key it is still dim now.

>:(

Thanks

Usually screen brightness is adjusted with the third hard button and the D-pad.
  • Up/Down adjust brightness
  • left sets backlight off
  • right sets to full bright

Perhaps you have an issue with the hard buttons?

I just got this figured out.

You have to press and hold the third button from the left and then press the up or right Dpad key.

This is bios controlled brightness. It works while booting.

Took me forever to figure it out, but my tablets are working fine now.
