I have just received the new 808 and I have installed the latest version of Nokia Sleeping Screensaver but it's not working properly. The problem is that it's too dim to see on my screen. This appears to also affect the default clock screensaver, it's too dim to see clearly. Raising the brightness does not make a difference.
Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to fix this?
The Sleeping screen app does display a dim image by default and also removes a certain amount of pixels from the pictures so as to conserve battery life.
Thank you, but I am aware of that.
I had this installed on my N8 for a long time and can clearly see the screensaver just like the picture you have posted. On the 808, however, it is much dimmer to the point where it looks like nothing is there and just a black screen. I can post a comparison photo to show the problem.
I've noticed other 808 users have experienced the same problem (some haven't) but no one really has a solution.

Here's a picture of my N8 and 808 both with the latest 'Sleeping Screensaver' app activated.
The 808 is way too dim to view compared to the N8. This also happens with the default clock screensaver and call/sms notification.
The newest version was supposed to fix 808 compatability but for me it's still not usable.

Is your screen always that dark? or ONLY with a screen-saver??
My 808 is just as bright as my old N8 (I no longer have it to test)
FYI it was the very first application I added to my 808.
I use the leaves image ..
What version have you got? .. mine is 1.14.1 Qt 4.8.0 QtMobility 1.2.2
Another quick thought .. do you have any battery saving applications loaded?
seki2012, thanks for your reply.
On another forum someone mentioned that it happened to them and it was known as a defective phone. I have contacted Amazon and I should be receiving my replacement phone tomorrow. Hopefully it is a hardware issue that is causing the problem.
I've just recieved my replacement 808 and I can confirm the screensaver works properly on the new handset.
So it was a hardware defect after all.
I have the same problem and really miss the Sleeping Screen which I found so useful and beautiful on my N8.
Oh, well I will have to look at sending it back...

since it works on the replacement device - presumably with the same OS version you can be fairly confident it IS a hardware issue.
Moderator's note: mentioning of illegal software removed.
I also have this problem with my 808 PureView. Anyone who knows if this assumed hardware defect influences on other functionality as well, or if it's only the screen savers that are affected? I've read about problems with the proximity sensors and screens turning purple, but as far as I understand these problems are not caused by the same hardware defect as the one we're discussing here...?
Just an update: Yesterday I've received my new PureView 808 and the screensaver works ! As mentioned before, it must be an hardware issue. I've chatted again with Nokia Care and they will inform the developers about that problem.
