all the cases worked fine.
it's not whether lcd driver has a problem or not.
I mean it's design issue of lcd class. AMOLED LCD Panel DOESN'T NEED
backlight device.
and I should have added brightness control feature to AMOLED LCD Panel
driver not using backlight class
because they have no BACKLIGHT DEVICE.

in point of view AMOLED LCD Panel, brightness control is perfomed by
gamma setting, not backlight power controlling.
