    Just replaced the screen on my macbook pro and when messing with the brightness levels I noticed that level 2-16 change the brightness normally from low to high. But when I go down to level one the brightness slowly fades up and going down to zero makes it brighter that the brightness of level 16. It really is bugging me.

    Does anyone have any clue whats wrong and any possible solutions???

    This is a shot in the dark and correct me if im wrong, but it sounds like there is a short in the sensor somewhere and when going to the "off" position it actually gives it full blast.

    See if the auto brightness is affecting it. Toggle it on and off and do the test each time.
