hi kruch, and other users
Background light controls... bug or not?!

i have a "problem" with light control (nokia C7 symbian ^3..)
Trekbudy backlight light have two main modes: On or Off - ok?

...at Map Screen, for example - touch shortly (or key "3") on bottom item, to switch on OR to switch off, light item at bottom, and consequently backlight/screen saver...

Mode 0 - If item light at bottom is Off
...the screen it´s on about 10% of light but, backlight or screen will switch off after some seconds, and screensaver will be in action shortly...

Mode 1 - If item light at bottom it´s On
...backlight it´s alway on, and we can "long touch" or press 3 several times, and screen will increase background light... for example 10%, 25%, 50%, and 100%, then return to first mode 10% of light, more or less...

...the screen saver in this mode it´s blocked... and the screen light it´s always on, and also the image light at bottom... well, i think this is to work like this... but...


well, i think we have here a bug...
... it´s not working like that, or it´s my phone... or me ...heheh?!
What´s happenning: after 100% light mode, with long touch or key 3 again, it returns to 10%, which is almost equal to mode 0, (item light OFF)... the screensaver, will be active in few moments, and the screen light, will be off...
(it´s intend to work like this? Return to Mode 0 at fourth position?! ...if so, thouching again or pressing 3 shortly, item at bottom should light on...)

But, the image at bottom it´s (always) turned off ... and if we touch shortly or press key 3, it´s always turned off... and if touch shortly or press key 3 again, item it´s always off...


My suggestion:
1 - So, I think the first stage 10% light, should also block screen saver, and the item light at bottom should be always on... To activate Mode 0, we will have to press 3 or touch shortly.
(my preference)

2 - Or if it´s intend to return to Mode 0, then thouching shortly again should activate item, at bottom...

3 - other sugestion is only having the Mode 1, with it´s 4 stages... (3 stages with the screensaver blocked, and light always on... and the other stage, screensaver on... )

thanks Wink

Post edited to change previous values:
25%, 50%, 75%, 100% > 10% 25%, 50% and 100% (more correct, and more understandable)

On Nokias (not all but many), TB supports 4 levels of backlight - 10, 25, 50, 100. You change the levels by longpress key3 or top-right screen corner.
At any level, you shortpress to prevent/not prevent screensaver.
The current status of backlight control is in Info->Technical->DeviceCtrl. Eg. with Belle phone, I can see "Nokia+ 1.4/null (25%)".

...with light at level "10" (minimum of all levels), my screensaver is active (it block screen in short time, and this is not intend to happened, i think)... and if i short touch the bulb or key 3, bulb is always off... here is the problem (bug)...

1- if i short touch, lamp should switch mode (on/off) ** (but does´t happened)
2 - at one of this modes (10%light), screen saver should be inactive (but does´t happened)

if i long touch to the next level, 25, bulb get´s on, and just then screen saver is blocked... and i can short touch to switch off bulb...

I have Symbian Anna, but i think i have the same problem with other models

With the lamp off at the bottom / (screen saver on after 1 minute)
"Technical - DeviceCtrl"
Nokia+ 1,4/null (10%) null/null

With the lamp ON (after activate mode with short touch or key 3),
at the several modes i have... (changing modes with long press/long touch, key 3)

25%... > 50%... > 100% ... > 10% (but the lamp turns off at this 10%...) > 10% again (but the lamp is ON) ...> 25% > 50%> 100%> 10% lamp of > 10% lamp on (end of the line edited)
- It wasn´t suppose lamp to continue ON, and screensaver mode off, at this (first) 10%?
- I short touch (at this first 10%), to change mode/lamp to ON, BUT lamp continuos off... until a long press/touch...

How many, modes we have with 10% light...?
I have 2, at mode screensaver OFF/backlight ON
... shouldn´t be only one, and with lamp ON?

And how many modes, with screensaver off, it´s supose to exist?
I think 4, but exists 5 including two times 10%

Something is not correct here...

otherwise ...... if only modes 25%, 50%, 100% are suposed to have screensaver off, then after a longpress at 100%, light should return to 25%, and not to 10% with lamp off...

Good Morning Kruch, Smile
do you understood my point of view?
The Bug is that we have 2 modes with 10% light, inside the mode screensaver off.

...after the 100% light, should change to 10% light, BUT with lamp ON...

BUT is changing to 10% light, with lamp OFF... and only after changes to 10% light, with lamp ON ...
