Enterprise LCD Screen Brightness

Post by bored robot » Mon Jan 30, 2017 11:25 pm

Can't find an option for this anywhere. How is the screen brightness adjusted or turned off? It's really distracting when I'm not using the device.
Thanks

Hello bored robot,

the 3Dconnexion properties have a button "LCD Settings" where you can change the brightness of the LCD. If you put it to 0 the LCD will be dark.

Thanks for the tip but I can't find "LCD settings" anywhere. Can you tell me what tab it's on? I thought it would be in the Device or Tools tab but all I have is a checkbox for Enable LEDs. No settings or options for the LCD screen anywhere.

My driver version is 10.4.3
Enterprise firmware version is 4.41

Thanks

Can anyone help? This is really annoying. Attaching a screenshot showing the properties box I have--there's nothing for LCD settings on any of the tabs.

I assume that's Windows only.

Ah ... yes! Sorry, my fault. My answer is Windows related. On Mac this feature isn't available.

I have entered an enhancement request for this. We are tracking the request with our internal number #7348.

Just got the same info from tech support. That's really disappointing, something that seems so simple would be left out. Not impressed with the drivers on the whole... :( Maybe I can cut some thin sheets of neutral Density film and put over the screen....or just go to the basic SpaceMouse which means more jumping back and forth between keyboard which is annoying but a lot less painful to my eyes. :roll:

Thanks for the responses fellas.

Peace
