Hi all! I wrote to lenovos facebook and lenovo support center about this problem and asked them to solve this with a new firmware. To be honest the lates official update is quiet old... 20160923. I hope they will fix this. :)

I had the same problem with my Lenovo tablet and i found this solution in another forum:

1) Swipe down from the left top of the screen (notification area)

2) Notice the Endurance notification.

3) To the right of Endurance there is a small pair of sunglasses.

4) Touch the sunglasses to toggle.

I have been having the same ridiculous problem. I can't watch some videos because some night scenes are hardly visible.

By chance, under settings in the system section, I enabled the Smart Side Bar. This appears to have fixed the problem by some strange reasoning.

You may want to go to your settings menu and see if maybe you have any power saving modes turned on or if you have an auto adjust feature for screen brightness which may be turned on. Some power saving modes may dim the display to save power or your tablet may also have the auto adjust feature which can sense how bright of environment the tablet is in and will adjust the display brightness to a level more comfortable for viewing. Like in a low light area the screen will dim or in a bright area the screen will get brighter. So look through your settings menu and look to see if you have any of these settings enabled. If so try adjusting them. It sounds more like the auto adjust brightness feature to me.

If changing the settings does not fix the issue then reply back and I would be glad to help you troubleshoot further.

I have checked the settings on my tablet and nothing helps.It dims and brightens at random. I have a problem with the power port. When it is dim some apps will not work properly. When it gets bright they are fine.

I had this exact same problem too and it's been driving me crazy for the longest time!

Here is the fix that I found:

Under the touch screen pull down for <Settings>,< PC Settings>= <PC and Devices> (after you go and click on it - smh) - Must Switch to Modern UI to find this, then search for <PC Settings>

(BTW I hate this Touchscreen Modern UI Menu - I don't ever use it except when I have to, normally I always use the old windows desktop and start menu searches)

At the top of the screen Select "Adjust my Screen Brightness Automatically" switch to OFF!

This seems to be a common problem with Lenovo device. The way I solved it was to swipe down on the left hand side. Under Endurance you will see a pair of sunglasses on the extreme right hand side.Touch to disable and the screen should go brighter immediately. This seems to have solved the problem for me.
