View Full Version : Backlight issues on 8703e

Hey all. Been having an annoying problems with my 8703e. After a couple of seconds the backlight shuts off and I have to give the device input for the screen to light up again. My default backlight time is set to 2 minutes so I'm not sure why this is happening.

I've seen this posted elsewhere here but there doesn't seem to be a resolution. One person suggested removing and re-inserting the battery. That helps temporarily but the problem always comes back.

Any suggestions?

RIM finally put a KB article out on this.

BlackBerry 8700c device backlight times out after 5 seconds (http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/articles/41/KB13154_f.SAL_Public.html)

It's for the 8700c but it may also work for your 8703e. Check it out.

I had the problem as well. The solution that I found was to install BBLight (http://www.blackberryforums.com/aftermarket-software/6944-download-bblight-bbweather-bbtoday-bbreply-binaries-gpl-source-code-included.html). That seemed to take care of the issue on my end, plus it adds some other great features.

Good Luck!
