Dimmed screen too much in plasma
#1
hello, I've recently received my Pinebook with the 1080 screen. all was going well until I dimmed the screen too far in the plasma settings window. Now my screen is black when it is on. during boot I see things as the boot sequence clearly is not affected by the plasma setting. How can I fix this without being able to see anything? This is with the original install.

If the slider goes all the way to the left does plasma actually go black or is there some weakness with my screen in this Pinebook?

Nice, the forum suggested a post that solved my issue. I didn't use "backlight" as a keyword so I didn't find it initially. A flashlight in a dark room lets you see the screen just enough to fix the resolution. it did require a restart for the setting to actually work... This is solved.
