    Forum colors have turned dark on my cell phone

    I didn't change any settings...just opened up PDF yesterday and the background had changed from white to black/dark navy with white lettering. I can't seem to get it back. On my computer It's fine.

    I have a Samsung S7

    Anyone else have this happen? I restarted it, still the same.

    Does the screen look...smokey?

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

    Looks fine on my evil I products.

    It's my phone. The background is white on my husband's phone...like mine normally are.

    I haven't changed any settings so I Don't know why they suddenly changed.

    I may have to go to an AT&T store and have a teenaged geek help me.

    You might go into the settings and see if your phone is night time mode or something to do with the visual settings. It might be in the settings under accessibility/vision.

    Try turning off your "Blue Light Filter" in your display settings.

    Tried the Blue Light filter and a couple of other things under "Display". I'm going to see about it tomorrow. Thanks Guys, at least my computer screen is ok.

    I'd love blue background with white text.

    Most of the Web, I feel like I'm in a Monty Python skit with Nazis shining a light in my eyes and screaming "SIGN ZE PAPISS!"

    "Oooh, blazing white headlight background, it looks like paper! It must be the correct desktop metaphor'... Even better, we'll use spidery gray fonts that can barely be seen against the brightness!"

    Part of the problem is that all the headers and everything except text are darker...almost unreadable.

    On white background I can decrease the amount of brightness but I don't have an option with this.

    It's just strange that my phone is doing this. It's not just this web site either, several others have become dark too.

    I don't know much of anything when it comes to phones, but it seems like it's still something to do with the settings on your phone. I have a setting under accessibility/vision called screen color inversion. If I switch it to on the forum changes to black background with white lettering. But, This also changes everything color wise on my phone. My apps page looks different etc. Does your whole phone pages, etc. look different, or just the websites?

    Just the websites, and not all of them. For instance eBay and FB still look normal.

    I think it has to be in my phone too, but I didn't change anything, it just happened by itself the other day. I've looked at the internal settings and tried a few things but so far, nothing has worked.

    My laptop does that to me all the time.

    I'll be typing like here and the screen will jump me into another website. I think it might be me bumping one of the buttons like Ctrl or Alt or the button that looks like the Windows logo of 4 red squares.
