Hello folks,

While watching DVD the backlight (media playing) becomes low after few minutes. I wish to know if there is some setting problem. Even the illuminated apple logo dims. Kindly help, thank you.

Hi Ivan thanks for the link, will try it surely. Wish to add here that I have watched movies on macbook and the backlight has not gone low. But now its going dim in mere 4-5 minutes of playing DVD, its surprising ! Any clues??
