    [Resolved] Brightness Control

    Anyone have issues with the brightness control with the dock attached to the TF101? Seems to happen randomly where the brightness
    increases till max then randomly the brightness control icon (one popping in the middle of the screen showing the brightness level) shows up. I seems to happen a lot with the .24 firmware and even loading a custom firmware it appears. I don't know anyone with another Transformer to see if it is a dock issue or software issue.

    I have not seen this issue if you have not tried a cold/hard reset (not a wipe) this might take care of the issue.

    Could it be something to do with the automatic brightness setting?
    Every once in awhile I'll accidentally set mine on, when I first dock it it will sometimes adjust and do a wee goofy
    brightness thingy. (uh huh, that's the technical term for it) I'm just throwing darts, could be something else entirely...

    Tried this. Even flashed new ROM and still happening ... I need to try to get video with my DINC and post it, I guess. :P

    Even when Automatic brightness is turned off it happens. For some reason, it will increase the brightness without me hitting anything until max (this is with Auto Brightness turned off) and then flash the brightness control on the
    screen randomly.

    Seems to happen only with the dock, very odd, but no one seems to have this issue. =(

    Dang it; looks both my DINC and Droid4 with AOPK (build-37) cannot make video. So, I'll post video when I get a chance to grab my camera from the car.

    Is there a brightness button on the dock. The key on there may be stuck, that's almost what it sounds like to me.

    But i have sometimes that brightness issue. Like, the tablet is very lighted up, and the auto brighness somehow blocked on auto, but the fact is that after i move the slider, then the light will dim , like it should. And im using the last ICS

    Thanks for the replies!

    However, I have had the issue for a while. Just check the dock (again) but no keys are stuck. I'll post a video at some point.

    I haven't had a chance to post a video; however, after further inspection of the keyboard, I think it might be a hardware defect in the dock. I can play with they keys (which never appear stuck) and get the brightness to stop at a specific location for a fewmins before it then returns to auto increasing the brightness once more. I may still post a video when I get a chance.
