Blank Screen after suspend, brightness key not working, bluetooth auto start at boot

Hi All,
I bought New Dell 15 Inspiron 5505 AMD Ryzen 7. I am facing some problems like blank screen after suspend, brightness not working now, was working at the beginning, can’t stop Bluetooth auto start at booting - did try tlp to stop loading bluetooth at boot.

Here is the inxi output

Manjaro helper log

Any help is really appriciated.
Thanks in advance

add i915.enable_dpcd_backlight=0 as boot parameter to fix backlight problem

edit the file /etc/default/grub as root and add i915.enable_dpcd_backlight=0 to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX parameter which is usually at the top. don’t remove the existing parameters. run sudo update-grub and reboot and check if you can change brightness now.

i don’t think tlp has anything to do with bluetooth. use sudo systemctl disable bluetooth.service

@ishaanbhimwal Thank you for your suggestion.
I was searching for the solution and find that Dell 15 Inspiron 5505 AMD Ryzen 7 with AMD RENOIR graphics has S3 sleep issue. Dell disable the S3 support. Laptop screen stays blank after suspend. Brightness key also not working.

Here is the links that helps me understand what to do for my case.

Link 1
Link 2

My solution was to install the experimental kernel 5.16.0-1-MANJARO.

Now my laptop can show the login screen when the lid is open from sleep, before it was blank screen and I had to hard reset.

For Bluetooth I have to install tlp-rdw and set the proper setting there.

Brightness key is now working as it suppose to be.

Only one problem left, when it woke up from sleep it can’t remember the WiFi mouse was plugged in rather I have to re plug in to work. I hope in future this problem also will solved by the kernel upgrade or may be I need to change some settings. You are more welcome to suggest any solution to WiFi mouse problem.


nice that 2 of your issues are solved but try switching to lts kernel. it is more reliable and will probably solve the wifi issue

Blank screen problem seems to be appearing again after sleep. It did work few times. Ahh, I have to wait for the upstream kernel release to fix it or have to apply the patch. To be honest never did patching by myself. :frowning_face:

not tried but might work →
Edit the grub file by editing it with sudo access.

sudo vim /etc/default/grub 

Add nouveau.modeset=0 to the line that says GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" so that it finally looks like this GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nouveau.modeset=0". Don’t remove the existing parameters.

Then run

sudo update-grub

Reboot after successfully updating grub.

Okay I tried GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nouveau.modeset=0" and the system boot up correctly. Last time I also did try the modeset but without the value and the login screen was blank.

I also tried 5 minutes lid down and when the lid was open the login screen load successfully. Lets hope it stays persistent. Will also test with more time close lid in a day and will post the update here.

Thanks @ishaanbhimwal .

I pray that the upstream developers understand the issue and able to fix it by kernel release. The device works fine with Windows sleep function. I hope in future it will also work fine with Linux. :slightly_smiling_face:

I found some instruction in this link about another dell model, I may need to follow the instruction of patching.

cat /sys/power/mem_sleep                                         

sudo dmesg | grep -i acpi | grep supports                       
[sudo] password for shahi:

[    0.428489] acpi PNP0A08:00: _OSC: OS supports [ExtendedConfig ASPM ClockPM Segments MSI EDR HPX-Type3]

Indeed my laptop don’t have the S3 sleep mode.

Did you try this: Fix suspend issues on Dell 7405 2-in-1 - DEV Community? It didn’t work on my 5500U HP, but maybe it will for your Dell 5505.

@TheRoark yes it did solve my issue for now. I still have the USB device connected issue. After wake up from sleep it can’t remember my WiFi mouse. I have to re plugged it.

try disabling tlp :point_down:

I tried with disabling TLP and it didn’t work.
