    I'm not quite sure how it happened, but my screen now dims when I use my keyboard, but the keyboard stays full brightness. Has this happened to anyone else, and how can I fix it? This makes it difficult to see what I'm typing, especially if the app I'm using is in dark mode.

    Have the same issue. Can't seem to figure out how to stop it from dimming while using the keyboard. I'm using a note 10 and the Samsung keyboard.

    Welcome to Android Central! Does it also happen in Safe Mode, as mustang7757 asked earlier? https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...-galaxy-note10

    Also, does it matter if you turn off auto-brightness?

    Welcome to Android Central! We've asked other people in this thread twice about testing with Safe Mode, but no one has ever responded. What about you?

    I do not know what safe mode is unfortunately. I searched for "safe mode" in settings but found nothing of use.

    Can you elaborate?

    A quick Google search says that to turn safe mode on, I would have to restart my phone. I have not restarted this phone in the same time frame that the dark texting has happened.

    I have added two screen shots in an attempt so you can see what is happening. With keyboard hiding the screen is bright. When I bring up the keyboard the screen goes dark except for the keyboard.

    Welcome Mark41
    In dimming you mean the dark keyboard? Do you have dark mode on ? Check in your pull down notifications panel a toggle called dark mode

    Here are the steps: www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00062983/

    Since you haven't rebooted the phone yet, then rebooting is worth trying first. If the problem persists after a reboot, then try Safe Mode, which will temporarily disable any 3rd party app you installed. This can tell you if the problem is due to something you installed.

    Thank you all for your help.

    I restarted my phone and it appears that the issue has been fixed.

    Mustang7757, I do have dark mode on. While the issue was occurring dark mode didn't play a role in it. I turned it off and the issue remained.

    A restart did fix it though.

    My S10+ had the same problem but I restarted it òr putting it in safe mode will also work.
