Question about Motorola Mobility TracFone® V170 Cellular Phone

3 Answers

Back light will not come back on.

I accidently turned the back light off, and now with the back light off I can't see to turn it back on. I know I am stupid but there must be a way to turn it back on without the light. It's a V170 Motorola.

PS it's my wife's cell phone.

    I accidentally turned the backlight off on the Tracfone V170 and now I can't see anything so I can't reset the phone. Is there any fix for this problem?

  • bocabay Mar 09, 2008

    I was not at the Backlight setting any longer. I followed the solution given and I could not really see anything when I tilted the phone so I went outdoors in the sun and it worked out there. I finally got my phone back to the Backlight setting, it said OFF, I scrolled down to 20 seconds and hit BACK. It was fixed but I didn't realize it because I was still in the sun! Thank you.

    Backlight problem fixed.

    Taking it into strong light (actually used a lamp) or sunlight allowed me to see the screen w/o the backlight. Really quick fix. Thx

    My back light is out and I can't see to get to the menu so that I can turn it back on. I went into the sun and held it under a lamp, nothing. Is there another way?

If your on the back light settings, then press the down arrow three times. if your not, you can tilt it in a certain way so that you can kinda see what your doing

Go to MORE then go down to BACKLIGHT and turn it on to either 5,10, or 20 seconds. Its as easy as that.
