Question about HTC Touch Pro Smartphone

1 Answer

The wired keyboard backlight turnes off too quickly

I am looking for a way to lengthen the time the backlight on the keyboard stays on. I am having the same problem with the timing on the main display during phone calls. The main display turnes off almost immediately once I place or receive a phone call.

    I haven't been able to find a setting that adjusts the keyboard's backlight, and the screen always turns off when I'm on a call. I'm getting used to the 2nd problem, if I need the screen on I just press the power button. I imagine the reason they made it that way is so you can't interrupt your own call by your cheek hitting the touch screen.

    It's nothing whatsoever to do with the backlight settings

  • Rntl Jan 23, 2009

    The solution given is not solving the Problem of backlight getting off as soon as the call starts.

  • ianlaura May 05, 2009

    Back light goes off as soon as the call is answered. Real pain when calling answer phone, using extension numbers and other calls that require keyboard input. My understanding is that you can not stop this using the back light settings provided.

You would need to go into the Setting Menu and find the Backlight or Power setting to lengthen the display and keypad backlight times. Just know that your battery life will decrease the higher the settings especially since it is a VGA screen.

How to increase battery life in LG GT505


Feeling tired that after surfing the web or playing a few games, the battery is halfway through to being dead?
So this Tip is for you!
What we're going to do, is put every setting on the minimum so that it doesn't waste battery life that much when you're just typing a SMS.

1 - Open the Menu and click on the last icon (on the right bar) on the bottom. - Settings

2-Open Phone Settings, and slide the Power Save button to turn it ON.

3- Now go back to Settings and go to Screen Settings and choose Brightness. Set it to 0% and Save it (click Yes even if it tells you that you are changing the Power Save Settings)

4 - (Optional) If you don't mind your phone turning off the backlight real quick, you can change the amount of time it stays on, but if you send or read a lot of messages, it can become a bit annoying, so it's really up to you! Anyway, in Settings, choose Screen Settings, then Backlight, and choose whatever time suits you. Keep in mind, that the lower the time stays on, the more it saves up battery life.

Imagine you just made a phone call, then put the phone on your pocket. For some time, it's backlight is on for a long time, maximum brightness and you're not even looking at the phone. That's a waste of battery power!

Using those new settings, you can get up to 3 days battery while playing a fair amount of games!

How do you get the keyboard lights to stay on? They come on and off at will.


Hi,

For you to extend your keyboard lightening time, please do this;

1. Click on the Home button > Options > Screen/Keyboard > Scroll to Backlight Timeout increase to the highest probably 2minutes. This should should keep your backlight on for as long as 2 minutes before it goes off.

This should do.

I was chaging setting and I turned of backlight


If its just the backlight then you can stay in a well lit area and look at the screen that way to change the setting, also you could try plugging it in to keep the backlight on.

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.
