    I have a new phone (Oppo find X2 Pro), but now Tasker is unable to change my display timeout.

    I just have a simple task changing this setting, it runs, but the setting isn't picked up by Android.

    Any ideas?

    Regards,
    Martijn

    On some phones it only works while the display is on. Could that be the case here?

    Even when I manually run the task the display timeout isn't adjusted

    Maybe you can try using the "Custom Setting" action for that. Try using the Magnifying glass in the action with the option to automatically find the setting and see if Tasker can find it. Hope this helps! :)

    Thanks I tried that but it's not working either. It captures the setting with the magnifying glass, but it's unable to change it.

    There are more tasks not working on my phone, e.g. unable to toggle WiFi and Bluetooth. I think it is because of ColorOs, which makes Tasker pretty much useless on my phone :-(

    Not your fault, apparently they did some strange things in ColorOs, maybe the new version based on Android11 improves things.

    Thanks.
