    Screen Dims and then Brightens

    Hi Everyone
    My Thrive screen slightly dims and then comes back, intermittently. Perhaps once every two of three minutes. Am I having a failure of some sort? This has been going on for several weeks, but has not gotten any worse (fortunately). Any ideas?
    Thanks
    Bill

    Do you have auto brightness on, by chance?

    do you have it set on auto brightness control when it is doing this? Try setting it in a fixed setting, to determine if it might be the light sensor vs the screen.

    If you are not doing anything, the screen will start to dim a few seconds before the THRiVE goes to sleep.

    That's the first time I've heard of that feature referred to as a problem. I personally like it. It auto adjusts to outdoor lighting and can be easier on the battery. However, I'm glad you got it sorted. Enjoy you're Thrive!
