7" HDMI LCD backlight control?

raspberrypi

#1

Hey folks,

I recently purchased this screen for my raspberry pi project:

Just wondering if there is a way to control the backlight via software commands? There is a physical switch at the back of the panel, but I haven’t found further docs for this LCD.

If it is a hardware limitation, I should be able to de-solder the physical switch and control the backlight via GPIO, or not sure if I need a relay module? I’m quite new hardware wise, been coding all my life tho, any tips and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
