Question about Motorola Mobility TracFone® V170 Cellular Phone
I purchased a new cell phone but before I had a chance to activate it my grandson found it and starting punching buttons. Later when I tried to activate my phone there was no display. It still makes the same sound when I turn it on but no display. I am unable to activate it without seeing the display. If I can't resolve the issue I will have to buy a new phone. Thanks.
The display should still be there, but the backlight is off. What you need to do is get the display under a bright desk lamp and find the setting to turn the back light back on.
Open the phone, hit the center button between the arrows, find "Settings" with the arrows, press the top left button (thats select, as the hard to see screen says).
Now navigate with the arrows through settings to "Other settings", (hit top left button again), "Initial setup" (button again), "backlight" (again), and choose 20 seconds. Right now it is on "off", which makes it so hard to see.
Hope that helps.
