EnV3 external backlight stays on

I set up the external backight to shut off after 7 seconds but it still stays on? If I remove the battery and reinstall it then the external backlight will work properly UNTIL I recieve a incoming call or text then it stays on again until i remove the battery then reinstall it. I have only had this phone for 1 week and it is brand spanking new...what gives?

    I have done this and it is set at 7seconds but the backlight will not go off which drains the battery, I am charging this phone twice a day. if I remove the battery and reinstall it the backlight will shutoff until i get an incoming call then it stays on just like before.

    Still doesnt work, I have both internal and external set to 7 seconds but that didnt work. I did a factory reset and that doesnt work. The only thing that works is to remove the battery everytime it decides to stay on and that only lasts until I get the next incoming text or call. Im taking this new piece of s#$t back to Verizon to see what they will do to help though I can imagine they wont do much....thanks

SOURCE: Help! SD Card/Phone not working togther correctly

Hi pinakbet, the more detail the better I say. :) I had a problem similar to this with an SD card, the way I fixed it was to backup all of the data from the card onto my PC, then format the card totally wiping everything off it. Then putting it back into the phone so that it will reformat it so that the phone can read it. Then try again, if the problem persists, I would say the card itself is faulty, take it back if it is still under warranty, or if not, I'm afraid it looks like you may have to purchase a new one. Hope this helps in some way! Si :)

SOURCE: My LG env3 keeps shutting down then turning back

I think you need to format your phone, its like the file on it has been corrupt. A phone restore will solve the problem.

Take care

Monitor keeps shutting off after a few seconds- hp dv4000notebook

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

My env3 went in the washer. is there any hope? there seems to be no more water externally

The best thing to do is remove the battery, then get some medical grade alcohol, and soak it in that for awhile then take it out and let it dry for a couple days. This is about the only hope, unless you know how to take it apart.

lol.. sorry for laughing but that's funny... i would recommend for you to take the battery off for 15 seconds and put it back again. If this didn't work go to START-SETTING-BACKLIGHT... then you will see of how to save the battery power and also the external power. Try this and let me know if your phone is been fixed. thank you goodluck
