    Screen Issues on storm

    The screen on my phone is going crazy. Yesterday morning it looked like the screen was off but after looking at it I could see that it was extremely dim, almost to the point of it being blank. If I gently squeeze or twist the phone the screen will come on. Sometimes it stays on for a second other times for a while. Last night it started working normaly and it was fine all day but know it is acting up again. Anybody have a suggestion?

    after i updated to the 5.0 OS beta, even when auto dim was off, certain things i did would dim my backlight, or put it to max, i usually have mine set on 80%....would drop to like 30, or up to 100....was odd
    Fallen, broken. Simply dissolved into an incomplete thought.
    An empty shell, cracked, and disfigured. With no remorse,
    I have been blinded by the darkness. With no disdain,
    I have received my punishment. And with no haste, I await them.

    Did u ever determine what was causing it? Or do u think it was just a bug in the OS?

    I believe it is a os issue im sure itll be fixed whenever a new 5.0 is leaked. Which probably wont be for a while.

    causey, I noticed the same thing happening after i loaded os 5.0 - I'm thinking it has something to do with the 5.0 beta.

    Welcome to BlackberryOS Romsas

    And you are most likely correct, I can't remember which leak it was that did that before as well.

    Speaking of screen issues. Not that this is an issue but I guess I can use this
    thread. Can some people running .151 with the latest Hybrid tell me what they have their screen settings at? I mean the Tap Interval, Hover Period, and Swipe Sens.

    mine did the same thing with .148 i freaked out the first time it happened and did a battery pull, that fixed it for a couple days and it happened some more after that. never did figure out what was the cause or solution. still does it occasionally on os5

    Most of the offers we have are places where you send it in to them to get it repaired.
