Firstly, go to 'Start > Settings > System tab > Backlight'. There, in one or more of the tabs, you will find checkboxes named 'Turn off backlight if device is not used for', next to a dropdown menu representing the timeout value, for operation both under battery and external power sources.
However if you find these settings to be correct, and, yet, your device refuses to follow them, I think something you have installed might have messed them up. Perhaps a hard reset would fix your problems. A hard reset will restore your device to its factory defaults, i.e. all the programs you have installed, as well as your personal data, will be cleared. So, if possible, make a backup, to be restored afterwards.
If your device is operational, you can hard reset it by going to 'Start > Settings > System tab > Clear Storage', type in '1234' and, then, tap 'Yes'
However, if you are e.g. stuck in the splash screen phase, you can still hard reset your device by hardware means: press and hold both softkeys (the ones marked with '-',) and, then, whilst keeping them pressed, briefly press the reset pin with the stylus pen. Release the softkeys only when instructions come up on-screen. Press the green Send/Call button to confirm the procedure.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Cheers! Carlos

Will only operate when plugged in to the mains adapter

Hi angelahar313,

You can try to reset the unit and recharge it again.

This operation will not affect your ebooks:

1. Leave the unit connected to the adapter
2. Hit the reset at the bottom for 3 seconds
3. Slide the power switch (the screen will blink and boot up)

If after that the proble still persist, you can try a hard reset. NOTE: This will set the reader to factory settings and will delete all you content.

1. With the unit connected to the AC Adapter, hit the reset button at the bottom for 3 seconds
2. Slide the power switch
3. While the reader shows "Opening Book" press and hold the "0" button and the directional down arrow at the same time, until " Reset All" appears on the screen
4. Press number 5 to confirm and turn the unit back on
5. Try recharge unit and disconnect it and see if that works

If these steps do not work, then contact Sony to get the unit repaired.

Install a new battery and reset the player. Schematics can be found in the owner's manual. If the problem persists, service may be required and can be obtained by carrying the unit in to the place of purchase.

Remove the Screen protector from the device screen and then calibrate the screen with the stylus.

If the issue still persists, perform the Soft Reset on the device.

1. Use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus.
2. Gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device .
3. After a soft reset, a logo screen appears, followed shortly by a Preferences screen asking you to set time and date.
4. All data on your device should be retained.

If the issue still persists, perform the Hard Reset on the device.

1. Press and hold the Power (on/off) button on the front panel of your device.
2. While holding Power, use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus. Gently press and release the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device.
3. If you see a progress bar, keep holding the Power button.
4. Next, the Palm Powered screen will appear. Release the Power button when you see it.
5. You'll see a screen that asks: Erase all data? YES = "up" button NO = any other button. Press UP on your 5-way navigator to complete the hard reset.

Your device will then take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and verify the time and date.
Note: A hard reset does not delete the current date and time. It does restore other settings to the factory default.

Treo 650 "Dead Screen"

Try plugging in your Treo as if you were charging it.

Then click the reset button in the back.
This should reset the charging mechanism inside.
See if the Treo starts to charge again after that by letting it sit for 1-2hrs.
