Re: Keyboard backlight not turning on after upgrade

Thought I'd let everyone know... I was at the bar last night, and trying to text and keyboard back light REFUSED to come on. I slid it like 12 times before just typing carefully. So this morning I used the search feature, and found this thread.

My issue was screen brightness. I had it on the lowest setting because, heck, I could still see it and it'd extend battery life. I opened up the keyboard, which didn't light up, went to Start > Settings > System > Backlight and slid the "On Battery Power" slider over ONE notch and the light popped right on. Oh, and the sensor for the keyboard backlight is turned off, in case you're wondering.

As a previous poster stated, this is a battery hit, but minimal enough to say "who gives a ****" AND, if your phone idles for a few seconds it will revert to lowest backlight, which in turn shuts off the keyboard backlight as well. Just thought I'd share what worked for me.

I have been having the same problem as well, but I have reflashed and done a few hard resets. I never had this problem when I was using official sprint versions, but I didn't have a GPS either... lol Anyways, I have tried the hard reset and it still doesn't work, anyone have any other ideas?

Re: Keyboard backlight not turning on after upgrade

it wont come on till it's done re-drawing everything running on the today screen and the app you are running. I have a minimalist today screen with just spb time, windows date plugin, O2 meters, and messaging. and keyboard light is on in less than 2 seconds

I found that htc home slowed the device down quite a bit, and looked awful in landscape.

Smile Re: Keyboard backlight not turning on after upgrade

Problem solved by turning the screen brightness in setting from lowest to one slot brighter. The whole phone lit up after that (I was changing the setting in a pitch dark room just to make sure it worked.)
Seems like a brightness setting mix up in the software.
