Playbook Backlight Timeout

Hi there,

i have a small problem, maybe you can help.

When im watching som videos in playbook browser, the screen turns dark after a few minutes.

Is there a possibilitie to avoid this?

Timeout can only be set to max 5 minutes...

 

Thanks in advance,

ariane

i also have this issue, i turned off auto dimming to help but does not do much good.

maybe RIM could be able to give us an option to turn on a "movie" mode which stops it from doing that

From main Menu, select General and change Application Behavior from Paused to Default.

Re: Playbook Backlight Timeout

Strange. I double
-checked mine just now. I set the screensaver to 90sec and the stand-by to 90sec. Was able to play a) a short video of about 3min that I recorded on PlayBook.. b) the 3min Hd video that came with PlayBook ... c) a 90min movie that I installed and ...c) youtube videos of any length. I would call RIM Technical Support...you have 90 days free support with your purchase.
