Exclamation 8730e Screen going off !!!!!!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all...just got an 8703e, but every few secs (20-30), the screen goes completely off and I have to move the track wheel to get it back. How do I turn this off so the screen itself is always on (does not need a backlight always on, though)...?

Thanks !

You can't disable this feature. You can only extend the time until the screen turns off. You will find the options under Options->Screen/Keyboard.

That's a painful option, especially when you try to see your inbox at a red light that changes fast !

Keeping the backlight on constantly would probably drain the battery faster.

Any key you press will turn the backlight on.

and the key that you press will not change what is on the screen.
I push the green phone button, and it just turns the screen on

This is the trade off for having a higher resolution screen: To conserve energy, it must shut off.

I would suggest purchasing an OEM (or equivalent) case--the screen will turn on whenever you remove the device from the case.
