Re: Screen light doesn't turn off

Check your display settings. Settings, Phone, Display: Check that Light Timeout is set (I have mine setup for 20 seconds). This should do the trick. If you wish to conserve yet more battery power, set "sleep mode" to on and set a power saver timeout (mine is set to 1 minute). good luck.

T mobile touch pro 2 doesn't power on.

Take the battery completely out of it and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Then install the battery and see if it will turn on normally.

When I turn my phone on, it freezes on the start-up screen and doesn't offer any further options

To Whom It May Concern,
I am very sorry you are experiencing this problem. I will do anything i can do to help. Your phone HTC Shadow is known for freezing. It is like a defect. I suggest you get a different phone. Get a new one from T-Mobile.

My blackjack's keys wont work

First off, how do you know it's the keys, rather than something else? More details are always helpful. An important question is, can you see or hear anything at all, by any means? If someone calls you, does the screen light up?
If you see incoming calls, but can't answer them because the keys don't do anything, then I'd ask if the phone might have the keyboard locked. You'll be able to tell because you'll see "Unlock" in the lower left of the screen when someone calls or you press the power button (top left edge, above the screen). If it's locked, pressing the "..." button to the left of the wheel will tell you how to unlock it (just the "*" button down by the "0" button on my Blackjack).
If you don't see anything when someone calls, you might want to figure out if the phone is working at all.
A couple of ideas (sorry if any of these seem obvious - it's bad form to miss simple solutions):
1. Is the phone powered on? You can turn it on by holding down the power button (top left edge, above the screen) for several seconds. If you make it to 10 without the phone coming on, then it might be the screen, the battery, or the phone itself.
2. Is the battery dead? Try plugging the phone in and then holding down the power button, as above. If it still won't work, try removing the battery, then plugging it in and doing the same thing over again. When you plug the charger in, you should see a Duracell-like image on the screen, even if the phone is turned off. If you still don't get any sounds or anything on the screen, it sounds like the phone has serious trouble - probably needs professional help.
3. If you hear sounds ("swooshing" on mine) when you turn it on or off and the keyboard lights up, but don't see anything on the screen, it sounds like the screen might be bad - probably needs professional help.
4. Finally, you could try connecting it to your computer with the sync cable. I haven't done that with mine, so you'll have to read the instructioins, but it might let you know that the phone is working internally, but having communications problems through the keyboard and/or screen. If that's the case, you can try fixing it yourself or get an estimate from a professional. Good luck!

You can try a Hard Reset which will reset your phone to its original factory settings, but it is likely a bad screen or screen interface problem. Any applications or personal data you put on the phone since owning will be lost. You can recover personal file if you have backed them up, of if you have License 'Key' numbers you got when you purchase them. Some App suppliers will have you an record and will email your Lic # if your email has not changed since purchase.

To Hard Reset, turn off your phone and then turn it back own while holding down both left and right soft keys till you get a screen asking if you want to Reset it. Another Hard Reset method, if you can get to Start Menu/Accessories folder when phone is powered, is choose Clear Storage and clear the storage. This may not work on some phone models, but note this method will also reset your phone to 'as purchased' state, with all stuff you added since removed.

Note a Soft Reset is the same thing as just turning phone off then back on as normal. It does nothing but re-power your phone, but a Hard Reset recovers your phone operating system from phones MFG ROM and resets it back to original as purchased state.

If this doesn't work, as a last resort, or first try if your handy, disassemble the phone to its screen interface with the phone's printed circuit board. Clean interface and disconnect then reconnect any cable interfaces.
