The brightness control app does " fix " the purple problem as you say, by setting the screen to a fixed brightness level. However, it's not a true solution as such because the screen is still faulty. In other words, the screen should not be displaying shades of purple or brown when the screen is at it's lowest brightness. A proper fix is to get the screen replaced by Nokia with a good working one. That is easier said than done though. It all depends on the Nokia Care Point you are dealing with.
There is a massive discussion about the purple problem running to 33 pages over on the official Nokia support site. If you have the stomach for it, you can read it at the following link.
The last two pages are more interesting than the rest of it as there are some success stories of people having their phones fixed.
Their are also reports that the Anna update, which some people have flashed onto their phones, also solves the issue as well.
The only problem I have with the brightness control app is it may shorten the life expectancy of the display. So you should use it only on a temporary basis until you find a permanent solution. Also, use it only when needed.
New user, 26 Jul 2011I'm having a trouble switching off the wireless network on my N8. When i try to disconnect it ... moreOn the homescreen, tap options and set 'widgets to offline mode'. If it still connecting try changing your email setting as to when to retrieve email. Also check if there's an app that is using the connection.

Hello, please someone help me! I have a problem...
The problem is the HDMI...
When I plug my N8 in to my HD TV, the screen shows up in standard definition and ratio is 4:3, but if I play a video or open a photo it shows in HD 16:9.
Same goes for Gaming, it doesn't show in full screen...
So, pretty much everything shows up in standard (480i , 4:3) definition except playing videos and viewing photos (by the way, Videos look stunning quality via HDMI in my HD TV)
Home screen, menu, games, and apps are viewed in horrible quality.
(My settings for TV out: profile-Normal. TV aspect-widescreen, TV system-NTSC, ficker filt-On)
PLEASE HELP ! ! !
