    Default BOLD 9900 backlight not dimming to lower %

    Hello all,

    Is anyone else having the same issue with backlight dimming not responding to the level ?
    i have it at 10 and seems to be 100

    I'm on OS 7.1

    Well, the lowest setting of "10" is still way too bright. In a dark environment, reading the screen hurts my eyes. You can try enabling the automatic dimming feature, which seems to dim a tad (but really just a tad) lower than 10.
    A setting of 5 or maybe even 1 would be highly appreciated. The very ergonomic "bedside" brightness is easy on the eyes, however you can't access it. As far as I know, there is no current way to lower the brightness below the preset levels. I heard there are some rather complicated tools which can fool around with internal system settings, but never really looked into such a thing.

    Thanks for the advice...

    I did remove auto dim and put it to 40% and seems better now.
    My problem was that in a lit environment, it seemed way to bright like glaring and I thought we could adjust that brightness but I guess not.
