    Backlight doesn't turn off

    Advertisement



    Just recently I've had an issue with the timer on the backlight, maybe it's not the timer, but something weird is happening and neither device that I have will turn off the backlight for more than a few seconds. Both devices are set to have the backlight go off at 20 seconds and it takes a little longer, but then the light comes right back on a second or two later. Any ideas? I've tried, pulling the batteries, wiping the handhelds, restoring an earlier backup and putting everything back on from scratch.

    Maybe is a OS problem, for some reason, the backlight settings doesn't work, well normally a hard reset (pulling the battery) is a quick solution but not in this case. so there is another solution. a Reflash (or reinstall the OS), you have to deliver your Blackberry device to your carrier's technical service dpt, requesting that workaround.

    important! - that workaround will erase all your information and applications previuosly installed.

    G L!

    Thank you for the response, found the answer, had to reinstall the 4.1 software (repair) connect device to desktop, open application loader and uncheck everything that I could, let phone reset and come back up, open application loader again and recheck all that was checked before, once phone came back up dial *228 option #1, all is well....... Just weird
