    Lights out screen color won't change in LR 2015.10

    terrin Level 1

      The Lights Out/Screen Color keeps reverting to White, even though the default is supposed to be black.  When I change it to black, close out of LR to save it, reopen LR, it has gone back to white.  See the screen shop below.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  I should mention that I continue to have the problem with the filmstrip being oversized.  I've tried numerous suggested fixes and none of those work.  I don't know if these two problems are related.  Thanks for your help.

          Hi terrin,


          I am able to change the lights out color scheme on both monitors. Please update to the latest version of Lightroom 2015.10.1 and let us know if that helps.

            Thank you for your response.  I have had this problem both before and since updating to LR 2015.10.1.  I also continue to have the film strip sizing problem, despite updating LR twice since the problem started.

              Do you have multiple monitors connected to your computer?

              Try resizing the filmstrip to the default size.

              If that does not help, restore Lightroom preferences to default, Refer this article Resetting Preferences in Lightroom CC/6 for instructions.

                I do not have multiple monitors attached. I have read the suggestions, tried them all, and spent over two hours on the phone and online chat with adobe support without success.  They had me uninstall & reinstall LR as a last resort & that didn't fix the issue either.  I was told that the next update would correct the filmstrip issue but have updated twice since then without success.  Do you think the lights out screen color issue is related to the filmstrip problem?

                  Please post your Lightroom Help>>System info report here.

                  We'll take a look and check if something is different.

                      Please create a new Admin account on your computer to test whether Lightroom works as expected on the new account.

                      See Adobe troubleshooting: Creating an admin account in Windows for instructions.

                        I created a new admin account and downloaded LR to the new account.  Both problems continued in the new admin account.
