Hi Em,

You wanted to turn off permanently the backlighting on your IPod Nano? Your player uses that backlighting in order for users to see the display during poor lighting conditions.
If you really wanted to switch it off, you can access the backlighting settings on your player; Select Setting then go to Backlight Timer, Choose the option that suite your need
(Always On, Off, Turn off after a period of time between 2 and 20 seconds) or you can press and hold the Menu button down to toggle the backlight on your player to on or off.

C150 as not working what's solution?


1

Check the orange "Hold" switch on the left side of the Sansa C150, if you cannot turn on the MP3 player or if none of the buttons is working. When the "Hold" switch is up, the buttons are disabled. Slide the "Hold" switch down to activate the buttons again.
2

Press and hold the "Power" button until the LCD screen lights up when turning on the MP3 player. Pressing the button quickly does not turn on the device. The "Power" button is located on the front of the device, under all the other control buttons.
3

Replace the AAA battery, if you cannot power on your MP3 player. To replace the battery, remove the battery cover from the back of the device by pressing in on its tab and pulling it off. Remove the old battery, insert the new battery and replace the cover. One AAA battery provides approximately 15 hours of power for your Sansa C150.
4

Change the backlight settings to conserve battery life. This is useful if you find the battery loses power quickly during normal use of your Sansa C150. To change the backlight settings, choose "Settings" to bring up the "Settings" menu. Select "Display," "Backlight" and then a shorter backlight time. The backlight will shut off after a period of inactivity that matches your backlight setting.
5

Review your music purchases to understand what rights you've purchased to the content, if you are unable to play a track back on your Sansa C150. When you purchase music, it comes with certain rules for how you can store and play it. You may not have paid for the right to transfer the song to a portable media player.
6

Reset the Sansa C150 if it acts erratically or if you have other problems. To reset the device, open the "Settings" menu and choose "Reset All." Choose "Save" to finish restoring the MP3 player to its factory default settings. If you decide not to reset the device during this process, select "Cancel" instead of "Save."

Dark Screen even when i adjust the 'brightness' tab?


check the power settings on te unit, if it is set to default for the backlight, possible that your LCD's backlight is not powering up properly on the unit or LCD's backlight needs replacement.

My sansa clip will play music but the screen will not light up;


Hello,

There's a timer for the display backlight that can be set and used for
saving power. When leaving the player untouched for a certain time, the backlight switches off. Touching any button will turn on the backlight, restarting the timer.

To set the backlight timer on the Sansa Clip,
execute the following steps:
1. Press Menu button to return to the Main Menu.
2. Move to Settings and select it.
3. Select Display.
4. Select Backlight.
5. Press |<< or >>| button to select desired backlight timer.

Backlight doesnt light


you probably need to replace the LCD screen. But there is one method that worked for me. I blew into the bottom hard and put it in sleep mode for about 5 minutes. When I turned it on again i went to settings and put the brightness all the way up and it worked

Ipod backlight wont work


Most of the time this is the LCD panel itself - it has built in LEDs around the edges of the screen that light it up. A simple swap out of the LCD is what will solve this. Email me if you need this done.

All the best

Backlight not working


This can really be a challenge since it's you are no longer able to see the display to change the setting, see if you can shine a fliash light on it so that you can at least read the display to change it. Otherwise see if you can get it to reset to factory default by either taking out the battery or just leaving it on till it is completely drained.

Hope this helps.

i know i have to charge my sansa for at least 7-8 hours before the battery will show it is full. about your other problem, i believe there is an option under the settings menu to automatically shut your sansa off. If not then you can turn off the backlight and that will save alot of battery life.
