    I have the same problem as this user. I have tried the option + menu but that only affects the screen. Seems like there is a problem with the keyboard 'light' itslef, as sometimes it is on, but most of the time off. Very frustrationg in the dark. I have insurance on the phone, but I have to determine if $50 is worth it to replace the phone. Any other ideas?

    I have the same problem. Now I see the keyboard light flicker on and off once in a while. In addition, I am having a problem with the N and J keys, so I'm thinking it's an issue with the keyboard. I may attempt to replace it by buying a replacement keyboard.

Have you tried the option key + menu key? It turns dims the screen and toggles the keyboard backlight on and off.

You can change how quickly Keyguard turns on, or you can disable this feature altogether. To change the Keyguard settings, do the following:
• Press the Home button
• Select System from the category drop-list at the top of the screen
• Select Prefs
• Select Keyguard.
• Select the Auto-Keyguard pick list, and then do one of the following:
-Select how quickly you want Keyguard to turn on: When power is turned off, 5 seconds after power off, or 30 seconds after power off.
-Select Disable to completely disable the Keyguard feature until you turn it on again by pressing Option +
Power/End when the screen is on.

Palm Centro - no backlight

Sometimes we can resolve the issue by pressing the Options key and the Menu key simultaneously. The Centro Keyboard backlight would Turn ON.
