    Default Screen brightness changes (auto brightness is off)

    Sometimes I'll be using my N7 and the screen brightness will change quickly and then change back. I've checked to make sure auto brightness is off.

    Anyone else have this problem? Solution?

    Same here. I'm pretty sure this started to happen with 4.2 update.
    Don't know the solution but if maxing out the Brightness is it, I'm not satisfied. Hopefully it was fixed in 4.2.1

    So you think it's a software issue? Well that's good.

    Unless it's a coincidence and my HW went bad at the same time after the upgrade

    Makes sense. I hope they fix it soon.

    Had the problem with 4.2. I did a factory reset, as suggested in other threads. It fixed the problem.

    This is a 4.2 software issue. Just swipe down on the top right and it opens the setting screen then turn off Auto and use manual brightness. I'm starting to like it better being brighter than under 4.1.2 since the colors jump out better for pictures and then turn it back down for text.

    Like I said, I didn't have auto brightness on.

    Yep noticed the issue after installing 4.2. You aren't alone. Read a few posts suggesting it was related to WiFi. Turned off the WiFi optimization setting to see if it helps.
