    Hi all

    I've had my 8520 for a couple of days and we're getting on just fine. However, just tonight the screen has stopped auto dimming. I've tried a battery pull, I've tried changing the backlight timeout setting in Options and I've tried just turning it off.

    It does dim if i manually put it into standby though. Am I being thick or is there a problem?

    Thanks all

    Were you sitting under a bright light?

    The brighter the external light source, the brighter the screen will be.

    Try covering the led/light sensor and see if it dims.

    Hi Phil

    Sorry, don't think I explained the problem properly, The auto dim feature works. What I mean is that if I don't touch any keys or anything the backlight stays on indefinitely and doesn't turn off after x seconds (depending on the timeout setting).

    Can't figure out whether I've installed an app it doesn't like or what. May try a hard reset see if that cures it.

    If anyone else has any suggestions I would be grateful.

    it could be a new app that was recently installed and you just need to do a reset/battery pull. Try that out and see what happens.
