    Question Backlight Problems

    Advertisement



    I'm new to the blackberry pearl and i am having a problem with the backlight. it seems that even in dark light i can't get the backlight to come on and when it does it will come on and off whenever it likes and many times the backlight will only come on in bright light and wont come on in the dark. i do not have the option for auto backlighting. is there anyway i can get the backlight on all the time or can i fix this problem?

    Go into Options, and Screen/Keybaord. There is an option to disable the autobacklight.

    Ah. I didn't see that it was a Pearl. I assumed he was talking about an 8800 since this is in the 8800 forum.

    Sorry

    If the pearl auto backlite works as well as my 8703 does then its a great feature, makes the screen easy to read when its bright and saves battery elsewise

    Re: Backlight Problems

    on my pearl, i like it when the keys and trackball are lighted up. so when they turn off i just place my hand over the screen and vuola! they light up.

    my friend told me that theres a light sensor embeded in the screen. look at the screen at an angle from the bottom up. u will see two little holes on the top right side of the screen. i think those are them.
    i hope this helped.

    The light sensor is next to the LED lights...

    You will probably need to update your OS. The latest has the Option to turn that off if you like.

    You cannot turn the key backlights off. I don't know what you would do if you're keys didn't light up in the dark. hehe
