K3 - Adjusting LCD Monitor

Perhaps it is late in the day here, but I am hoping that there is a simple answer to this question. I find that the LCD on the K3 is excessively bright (and therefore a bit misleading in judging the exposure). On the K5, you could adjust the brightness and the color. I cant find the settings on the K3. Can anyone tell me where to look?

Thanks in advance.

It's there:

Menu button > 'Spanner 1' > LCD Display Settings > LCD Brightness

Thanks, do you mean the high, low, off? Doesn't that relate to the top LCD rather than the rear monitor? Also, shouldn't I be able to adjust the color as well?

Discussed in some detail HERE. Wrench > 1 > LCD Display > Color; LCD Display Settings > Brightness (Page 11 of Menu, Page 22 of User Guide)

No. The top LCD settings are Menu > C4 > 22 - LCD Panel Illumination.

Look again at the menu settings I outlined above. You can indeed adjust the brightness level, saturation and colour of the rear LCD display.
