You can go into setting and change the settings so the backlight stays on longer. But the back light Does come on when you first switch the device i.e. take battery out and back in.

hope this helps,

I found out on here how to fix it. You take the battery out, while the phone is turned on, leave it for 30 secs then put it back in. So far it seems to be working.

Blackberry Curve 8300

Most likely your logic board has hardware glitches, if the problems remain after a firmware restores. If you're comfortable taking things apart or have a tech savy friend you can use a blackberry repair guide that will show you how to disassemble it step by step, or you can go to the repair service.
