First identify the backlight device linked to your panel, thanks to the sysfs:

 ls /sys/class/backlight
5a000000.dsi.0

In the above example, there is a single entry named "5a000000.dsi.0", which is replaced by "*" in the below command.


To adjust the panel backlight, enter the following command:

 echo 32 > /sys/class/backlight/*/brightness    # set the dsi panel backlight to the value 32

Note: Only values between 0 and max_brightness must be used.

To get the maximum panel backlight value, enter:

 cat /sys/class/backlight/*/max_brightness
255

To get the actual panel backlight value, enter:

 cat /sys/class/backlight/*/actual_brightness
32


Use one of the following commands to quickly test the panel backlight:

 export bl=/sys/class/backlight/5a000000.dsi.0/brightness

 # switch on/off test
 (while true; do echo 0 > $bl; sleep 0.5; echo 255 > $bl; sleep 0.5; done)

 # slow 32-step tests
 (i=0; while true; do i=$(((i+32)%256)); echo $i > $bl; sleep 0.5; done)

 # fast 1-step test
 (i=0; while true; do i=$(((i+1)%256)); echo $i > $bl; done)

Be sure the panel is running (power on) before modifying its backlight.

First identify the backlight device linked to your panel, thanks to the sysfs:
 {{Board$}} ls /sys/class/backlight
 5a000000.dsi.0

In the above example, there is a single entry named "5a000000.dsi.0", which is '''replaced by "*"''' in the below command.

To adjust the panel backlight, enter the following command:
 {{Board$}} echo '''32''' > /sys/class/backlight/*/'''brightness'''    # set the dsi panel backlight to the value '''32'''
Note: Only values between 0 and '''max_brightness''' must be used.

To get the maximum panel backlight value, enter:
 {{Board$}} cat /sys/class/backlight/*/'''max_brightness'''
 255

To get the actual panel backlight value, enter:
 {{Board$}} cat /sys/class/backlight/*/'''actual_brightness'''
