6600M screen & panel leds. Can I shut them down?

I recently obtained a 6600M after lightning destroyed my 6600. I always ran the 6600 as a radio server, but with the 6600M I can do that also but dont want the screen & led illumination when I am doing that.

I think I saw them automatically go off until rebooted but cant find if there is a setting for time to shut the illumination down.

Thanks for the help.

    If you want to set a timed display, the timer setting is accessed at main menu - Front Panel - Advanced Display - Profiles - Select Trigger = Time - Settings = Display - Power mode = Plugged In - Recurrence and Time at your discretion - Save.

    In the main menu “Front Panel” tab, disable the “Button Backlight” button to turn off the LEDs. I don’t think you can turn off the panel display.

    Thanks Neil. I knew about that but encountered seemingly an automatic shutdown of the front panel and screen illumnation. I left the radio on overnight last night and at 5A all was off accept the power button. I shut down the radio, restarted it around 8A and the illumination is back on again.

    I'll leave it on and see if I can determine if there is a timer setting and if so will inquire directly about that.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
