Default Blackberry 8310 Screen stays lit sometimes, drains battery

Please Login to Remove!


Sometimes the screen/keyboard will remain lit, and if I don't notice it in time will drain my battery within half an hour (maybe 1 hour?)...

I know pulling the battery fixes, as I have seen others post...but is this the only fix? Have many people experienced it? This is very bad, I can't afford to have my BB in the holster and not realize it is on.

* Note it happens when out of holster, but have no idea if it happens in.

This is completely Random, and sometimes doesn't happen for a couple of weeks.

BB info....( I've checked for updates and there are none)

What's your setting for backlight timeout (Options>Screen/keyboard)?

Also when the device is in a holster, chances are the device is put into standby (keyboard and screen should be inactive).

I would try a battery pull to see if this resolves your issues. Battery pull isn't a bad thing, sometimes its quite a common maintenance procedure.
