    keypad/trackball no longer light up

    Advertisement



    I'm having a problem where the trackball and keypad no longer light up. When I restart the device the backlight is lit, but not during normal usage and that makes it very hard to type in the dark. Anyone heard of this happening? It is obviously not a physical problem since the backlight does light up during restart...

    Well your light sensor could be acting up.

    It's located where the Status LEDs are. So if you cover up the LED it should trigger the backlight to come on. If you have the Autodim option enabled then it will dim a little when it's darker out.

    Have you checked the setting under Options>Screen/Keyboard>Backlight ?

    Yep, that did the trick. The sensor must be hosed. Turning the auto-dim feature off fixed the issue. I now have backlit keys again. Thank you.
