Default Qwerty Backlight Control Question

Please Login to Remove!

On my 8700 I know how to adjust the timing on the backlighted screen/keyboard through "Status".

While typing the backlight on the keyboard goes out (it doesn't seem like in the minute I have it set for) and sometimes it goes back on while typing but sometimes not. Can the keyboard alone be controlled for backlighting? If it is to go out how do you turn it back on? It seems like I do sometimes but not sure how.

Thanks

Don

I don't think there is control, but there is an ambient light sensor that automatically turns it on and off. I've tried to find the location with a small light source but haven't located it yet-- although I suspect its under the numeric keys that have the white tops.

Wirelessly posted (8700c: BlackBerry8700/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/102)

The sensor is under the LED in the upper right. You can turn it off/on using the screen/keyboard settings under the option menu
