    Backlight Problems

    HAS ANYONE had a problem where the blacklight is real dim, even in dull lighting? the only way I get it to work it pull the battery and then the backlight resets. Otherwise, the backlight stays dull

    Thumbs up Re: Backlight Problems

    Not all devices have the ability to turn that feature off. For instance the newer version of software on Tmo BB Pearl disables that feature. You only have Brightness and Backlight time out as options.

    Re: Backlight Problems

    maprx:

    The device you are referring to is preset to "dim" when in soft lighting enviroments and "brighten" when in brighter areas. In my opinion, it should be the other way around, but after talking to a RIM distributor, he explained that this feature is supposed to make for better viewing and less strenuous on your eyes.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Backlight Problems

    You can always manually cycle your brightness by pushing the on/off button on top. Just push it and it will cycle through (do not hold it down - this of course shuts the BB down)
