That is not a good thing... was it Axe only? (no inline-asm)
and how you sure it was blue, or just really high contrast?

Never ever do that again.
It's called test mode, and don't do it ever.
It will burn out your LCD if you leave it that way for long.

Mhmm strange, the LCD must not like such quick and drastic changes in display. I know that happens on 15 Mhz calcs hardware when quickly changing the contrast from very low to high values. But it's not as dangerous as test mode (BSOD) unless you leave the calc that way for a long while.

UNless you really mean it showed a non-flashy BSOD?

It didn't show text or anything like the windows BSOD, it just turns this vibrant blue (kind of like the blue in most of the links) and fades back at the end.

@calcdude: yes, it was just axe

BTW i'm using an 84+ with os2.43

Don't think a blue screen should happen on a black/white screen :O

Anyway, here's the vids.(zipped, because this forum doesn't accept *.3gp, you need quicktime player to open them, or ur cell)
The first vid is from my own code.
The second vid is from the code Dj Omnimaga linked in the 2nd post of this topic.

Is it the program you listed earlier, or is it a different one? This needs reporting... getting the BLOD's is not good.

You talking to me? That's not a bluescreen, but the reason why I started this topic :P

It was the second one, with the Shade( command.

Got to go, my library session's about to time out.  I should be able to get back on around noon tomorrow.

No, sorry, talking to Darl181.
The effects caused by improper synchronization (the "waves") does look interesting, I must say.
Edit: (Reply to Darl181)
Weird, that shouldn't be happening... Only giving Shade( certain out of-range values (92-95, to be specific) should cause that... I'll bother quigibo later.

Wasn't that what this topic was about? :P

BSOD = bad!  I thought Quigibo added checks for this, but I guess he left them out to save space.  Never put the calc in BSOD (make the contrast higher than it's supposed to be) if you want your calc to be the same.

That animation looks cool! :D  I like the one you made a lot. ;D

I just tested Darl181's code. It doesn't give a BSOD at all. At least not on mine. All it did was darken it slightly then when you press [CLEAR] lightens it.

Wow nice effects. I think I got them happen once on my calc before but I forgot how.

As for the BSOD I think it might due to contrast settings not being right. You need to enter a value of a certain range, else it can cause stuff like BSOD.

Quote from axe documentation:
"Shade(EXP) Sets the contrast. 0 is lightest, 63 is darkest. "
Repeat 1=2
If getKey=15
Goto E
End
-1→B
62→A
Repeat A>62
Shade(A)
A+B→A
If A<1
-B→B
End
End
End
Lbl E
Shade(47)

The loop is set up so A is always <62 and >1.

A is always in the range.
What DJ said about the display not liking high speed contrast changes seems to make the most sense.
I'm guessing that the LCD has just a slight tinge of blue and the quick adjustment brings it out more...?


EDIT: perhaps I should clarify more.  It wasn't a BSOD, just a blue screen.  No words.  Just blue.
