Help!

One of my Squeezebox 3s has stopped showing its powered off screensaver. Any suggestions? It has been gone for a while now.

Try tapping brightness? Double check the "screensaver when off" preference?

This question comes up so often, I wonder if Logitech should modify SlimServer so that a message is briefly displayed whenever a player enters a mode that has its brightness set to Dark, e.g.


Display going dark, press "Brightness" to illuminate...


This could be default behavior, with a web preference for squelching this message (for advanced users). It'd also be good if the web and player UIs for setting screensaver preferences would warn users about modes whose brightness was set to Dark.

A good thought, but a problem when you have a situation where the
brightness is set to dim while playing,
then when the sleep timer triggers and the player goes off, a bright
message is displayed to wake the user up to let them know the screen
will be going dark. There have been some rather vocal comments about
that situation in the past.

It is a rather difficult problem to solve for all cases.

Thanks - yep it was the brightness - it never occurred to me it could work when the SB3 was "off". But then I suppose it never really is off... unless you pull the plug. Plus of course I donīt remember turning it down. Cheers.
