Hi. It sounds like the backlight of the LCD has failed. If you replace the LCD screen that'll solve the problem. See http://www.formymobile.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=w850lcd

My phone seems to be working, but the LCD panel is dark. I really don't understand why the light went out.


Cells phones have a LCD screen the had a back light, When the back light goes bad 9 times out of ten you can take a flash light and shine it on the display and can see the image, if so you know you got a bad backlight

issue with these phnes as well is you gotta replace the lcd as the backlight comes with them most of the time.

I sure wish ya good luck with your phone and do hope this information did help.

Before you leave tho please do rate and leave some feedback on how well you where taken care of here at Fixya.com!

Is there any way of turning on the backlight on the numeric keypad on the u600?


From your main menu go into "Settings". Select.
Scroll down to number 5 "Light settings. Select.
Scroll down to number 3 "Keypad light". Select.
It will probably be set to "Night time" 05:00 PM.
Use your direction pad to change it to "Any time" Save.
The keypad backlight will be on all the time.

No backlight


A couple things to try:

1st check the backlight settings

Turn on Backlighting and Control Brightness To use your device in dark environments, enable the automatic backlighting feature:
  1. From the Jump screen, press MENU t02003-15.gif then select Settings > Battery & Display.

  2. In the second group box, select the Turn on backlight when using device check box.

  3. Highlight, then select the Brightness slider to open it for editing. Roll the TRACKBALL right to increase brightness; roll the TRACKBALL left to decrease brightness. After you've made the adjustment, press the TRACKBALL to exit edit mode. t02007-55.jpg

  4. Select the length of time you want backlighting to stay on from the Turn off after pop-up menu.

  5. To use the device's light meter while the backlight is on, select the Use ambient light sensor check box.

  6. Press JUMP t02003-14.gif to return to the Jump screen and save your setting.
Now, when you press any button or key, or flip open the screen, backlighting will turn on for the set amount of time. Note that as long as you press a key or button before the set time elapses, the backlight will stay on.
Tips:
  • Even if you have not selected automatic backlighting, you can turn on backlighting at any time by pressing MENU t02003-15.gif + JUMP t02003-14.gif . The backlight will remain on for the time specified in the Backlight Turn off after pop-up menu.

  • When in key guard mode, you can turn on the backlight by pressing the RIGHT SHOULDER t02003-66.gif button.
If it still does not work, then you can try resetting the flex cable to the lcd.

Reseat the SidekickFlex cable

If that doesn't fix it then a new lcd assy will take care of the issue. they run about 45 dollars on ebay.
