  • Yes. I've tried Auto, Manual +1, Manual 0, and Sunny. I can't say it happens with all -- for example, I was out for three hours yesterday, a sunny day -- and it never dimmed. Setting was Manual ...
  • Sorry, I guess I misunderstood Tom. I do know about the Monitor Brightness feature. What I don't know how to control is the automatic dimming of the LCD, occurring at random times and dimming to a ...
  • Tom! What is the auto-dim "feature" called and how do I turn it off??
  • I have not configured the camera to a mobile device, but I acquired it second hand so who knows? I can try and contact the seller. Warranty is out of the question, I'm afraid. I'll try a reset if I ...
  • Pairing as in Bluetooth? Wow. That sounded so crazy it might be true, so I checked the Bluetooth setting in the camera. It was set to Off. I suppose I could do a hard reset of the camera. Any other ...
  • I have it set to Manual and +1 currently, per Gary Friedman, but I originally had it on Auto. I believe it dimmed in both cases; certainly it does on Manual. And yes, I'm pretty sure it dimmed on ...
  • Well, there was a glass cover over the LCD. I got brave and pulled it off. It was actually a Sony product (at least it said Sony at the bottom) and it had two little notches in two corners. Maybe ...
  • @lehill: I think you've found it. There seems to be a glass protector covering the LCD and it may be affecting the sensor. But so far I'm reluctant to peel the protector off. @sibersitizen: Yes, I ...
  • Created question thread Rear LCD auto-dims
    No sooner do I acquire the camera of my dreams, an a99ii (second hand) than I have the strangest problem. The LCD dims itself. It doesn't go to black, it just dims. And it only happens from time ...
  • Created question thread bodies & lenses
    Over time, I've accumulated a couple of APS-C bodies and a variety of lenses, both APS-C and full frame. I know that a full-frame lens frames as 1.5 x focal length on an APS-C body; for example, a ...
  • Created discussion thread back button focus
    I know this is a topic that has been done to death, but Gary Hart has come up with a new (to me at least) implementation of back-button focus. It gives you both manual focus and back button focus ...
  • I've been having the very same problems, thanks to a new router and a lost setup CD. But 11 blinks saved me from heaving the whole business out the window. Still very frustrating as I never did ...
  • Many thanks to all who responded. @SonyEnthusiast: I did as you said, but even with the sensor very clean and the menu settings as you suggested, the problem didn't change. I'm pretty sure it's the ...
  • OMG. Precision wants $479 to make the repair. I could * pay the repair cost on a camera with 50,000 clicks * replace with another a77ii, preferably new or close to * replace with full frame, maybe ...
  • Created discussion thread a77ii screen issue
    My beloved a77ii has developed an odd problem. Pull the rear screen away from the camera and it will eventually cut out and go to almost black (indicating it's still on). Push it back toward the ...
