Armbian - need help, locked out myself by setting backlight to zero
It might be possible the screen backlight is not completely off but just extremely dark. I made the same mistake running KDE Neon the first time I was trying out my Pinebook and the solution was to shine a flashlight on the screen at the right angle where you could then actually see the desktop just enough to turn the brightness back up again.

Unless your backlight really is completely off. Then, unfortunately, I don't have any ideas besides wondering if there's a "safe-mode" you can switch to on boot? I'm not familiar with Armbian, unfortunately.
