    Question Xplayer - backlight turns off while playing

    Advertisement



    I've searched and searched and found very little about this issue. When I'm watching videos on my 8100 Pearl, about 2:15 minutes into it, the back-light turns off. I push any key and the light comes back on but with the menu color distorted. A simple resume of the file gets it back to normal but I would not like to do this every 2 minutes. Is there a solution somewhere?

    I have tried setting the back-light timer from 10 to 200 seconds and still same results. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and nothing is working. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hmmm...that's odd, Do you have AutoLock or anything, cuz I have AutoLock...and it must be disabled in order to watch the entire video because the screen will turn off and It'll lock itself.
    But if you're changing the settings on the backlight, I'm not sure what the problem could be

    Could it be the latest version causing this? I might try downloading an older version to see if the backliight goes off or not.

    Edit: Scratch that idea since I don't know where to find an older version.

    Yeah...its seems as though xPlayer allows the backlight to turn off, and the stock media player doesn't!! only flaw of xPlayer that I've ran into so far

    Thank you for the feedback. It is a known issue, our developers will fix it in the next update. We will inform you as soon as it will be released.

    Other users say that using volume buttons on the side of the BB will wake the screen up without messing up the video or you can scroll the trackball (not clicking) while the video is playing to prevent the screen saver from engaging. (thanks to dengland)
