    A couple weeks ago, I noticed that my screen would flicker when it was below about 50% brightness and that it would stop flickering when above 50%. I now have a problem where the screen is flickering and I cannot adjust the brightness which seems to be stuck at 0%. I can just barely see the brightness slider and when i raise it, the brightness remains the same. I don't use adaptive brightness btw and I am also on Android 9 still. Has this happened to anyone else/ does anyone have any solutions?

    Welcome to Android Central! Does this also happen in Safe Mode? https://www.getdroidtips.com/boot-xi...ite-into-mode/

    Have you messed with anything in developer option?

    Yes it does. But the situation has now changed back to what used to happen after I rebooted for the millionth time just now where it flickers below about 40% and doesn't above it. I can now adjust the slider again. But I worry that it will return to the way it was with me not being able to adjust it.

    In that case, it's probably a hardware issue with the screen. You could do a factory reset just in case, but ultimately, you'll probably have to bring it to a repair shop.

    Ok , thanks
    A quick search might indicate its normal on this type of phone.

    If it has adaptive brightness try turning off , or maybe use a 3rd party brightness app and turn off the stock auto brightness

    I hope it's normal and I won't have to get it repaired if that's the case

    No luck, honestly I can cope with the flickering, I just hope it doesn't go back to 0% brightness and gets stuck there
