Re: Tab 4 8 Plus display dims when there's little to display

2019-04-21, 15:30 PM

I found the solution without rollback. It’s related to my Asus Max Pro M2 phone. This phone had same problem with self-dimming screen. Original post from https://mobileinternist.com/disable-adaptive-brightness-android

 

1. Install Nova Launcher from Google Play


2. Tap on home screen and keep finger 2 seconds
3. Select Widgets


4. Find Nova Launcher section and tap on Activities and drag to home screen


5. Find in list Content Adaptive Backlight Settings, tap on it


6. Tap on Content Adaptive Backlight Settings on home screen
7. Uncheck Enable Content Adaptive Backlight


8. Restart tablet
You may delete after this nova launcher and shortcut for Content Adaptive Backlight Settings. It’s working for me )

I just checked your solution. Strange enough, but this only works until the first time the screen is locked.

In detail:

-you make this setting, you reboot: everything works as intended

-you lock the screen by short pressing the on/off button or waiting for automatic screen locking. You unlock the screen: everything is bad again.

 

After every new reboot it's ok, after every first screen lock it's no longer ok. :-(

I tried @maxim13rus solution but had the same issue as @ingovidual, itbworjs until the screen is locked and then returns to the annoying dimming until restart.

 

In the end I have returned to Android 7.1 until I hear this being fixed. Just annoying to deal with apps not starting automatically on boot and no inbuilt blue light filter.

It seems like they feel its acceptable for users to mess with downgrading their own OS rather than create a fixed update. 

 

Sad state of affairs.

I use dark modes where possible. If there's very little to display on a screen in dark mode. my display GOES DARKER! If I turn auto brightness on, the screen will go completely black! The same occurs if, for example, I tap on a sample display in the Play Store which is mostly black. So it's delibrately making a hard-to-read screen HARDER! This is independent of what app I'm using. As long as the display is almost all black, it TURNS BRIGHTNESS DOWN! Stupid.


Still no fix? Same issue here. When there is little to display the screen goes black. I've looked through the developer settings but there is no solution there either.

Hi, I had same issue after update to Android 8. 

 

Solution which works for me:

 

Settings -> System -> Developer options (need to be activated, see bellow how) -> Backgroud check -> Uncheck Content Adaptive Backligght Settings

 

 

After this restart your tablet and problem should be solved.

 

Developer settings are in default hidden in System settings. You can show them by go to Settings -> System -> About tablet -> Build number (several times tap on this until you will see "you are developer")

 

Hope it will works for you and enjoy your day!

 

BR, Ondrej

Like the nova launcher solution, the developer option fix stops working once you lock the screen unfortunately :(
