Does Your Screen Turn Off Completely After Backlight Goes Out?


Aug 4, 2008, 12:08 AM
Hey, for those of you who have a W385, I just got one on Telus Mobility and I've been noticing what seem to be a few bugs, one being that the time on the outside display can not be rotated horizontally.

But the other thing is, when you open the phone, after 20 seconds the backlight goes out, this is a setting in the phone. However, not only does the backlight go out, the entire screen seems to turn off. At least, it does on my phone.

Can I ask you other people who have a W385 to check and see if yours does the same thing? After about 20 seconds, does the screen go completely black (turn off) or can you still see it on under regular room lighting, just without the bright backlight?

I just want to make sure this isn't just my phone si...

I figured it out!

Finally, I've been messing with this for days and I decided to just do a Master Reset. I did and now the screen seems to work more correctly.

Now after the 20 seconds the screen dims and stays on for the time stated in the 'Display Timeout' setting.

I also discovered the reason it was going completely black before, doing the master reset helped me to figure out that if you have your regular screen Brightness set to 0, after the 20 second backlight the screen will turn off entirely.

If you, however, change your Backlight setting to 1. After 20 seconds the screen dims to 0 and stays on for an extra minute or two (or 5 or 10) depending on what you have 'Display Timeout' set to. 😁
