TyTN II - Keep the phone screen alice during a call
I've just replaced my O2 XDA IIs with a HTC TyTN II. When I make or receive a call the phone screen blacks out completly. If I press the green answer button the screen comes back - but the call is on hold.
I have set the backlighting to remain on both on bateery and mains power - yet I still get this black screen.
It makes it impossible to key in additional number once the call has commenced.
Is this normal or is there a fix or workaround to keep the screen alive during a call?
Re: TyTN II - Keep the phone screen alice during a call
Received the following reponse very promptly from HTC Support
---Quote--- This is actually a function of the phone and not a fault. It was designed so that when you were on a call and had the phone against your ear that you didn't accidently tap on the screen and open functions or end the call etc. If you wish to access the touchscreen while on the phone you can press the power button on the side of the phone to turn the screen back on. I have attached a 3rd Party Application that allows the screen to stay on while you are on a call. Follow the below steps to install the program.Attached is a patch for the TyTN II screen blackout issue. This is not an official fix.
Copy the KaiserTweak.zip folder to your pc's desktop.
Connect you device to the pc via ActiveSync.
Use the Explore function in Active Sync to copy the KaiserTweak.zip folder to the windows directory on your TYTN II.
Disconnect your TYTN II from the pc.
Open up file explorer on your TYTN II and go to the windows directory
Unzip the folder to the windows directory on the TYTN II
Run the Kaiser Tweak.exe to install the patch.
Adopt the recommended configs, not the default.
Soft reset the TYTN II by pressing the stylus into the little circle hole on the bottom of the handset.
If it doesn't work first time hard reset and try again.

Hi, Go to xda-developers.com and then go to forum then look for blackstone its the code name for the kaiser HTC tytn II and then into rom and then find amongst the threads that have been posted hope this helps =) =)
To perform a full reset A full device reset clears memory, deletes all data, and restores the Pocket PC Phone to its default settings. Programs installed at the factory remain. All data that you have created and programs you have installed are erased.
Press and hold the Power button, and then use your stylus to press the “soft reset button” at the same time. Be sure you have backed up all your data on an SD card or on a desktop PC before performing a full reset. Hope this helps.

try going to http://forum.xda-developers.com/ and searching there. they have loads of advice of the XDA IIs. Proberly need to start a fresh with it, try a hard reset as it seems your stuck in bootloader mode
I also tried re-soldering joint L781 on the main power control board (see Solutions #2 and #7). It worked. My 15 inch Dell flat panel LCD is working again, white screen gone. The solder around the pin did looked different to to the other joints...a very slight gap around the pin as though it wasn't contacting properly. To locate L781, look at the bottom of the PCB (the side with the soldering) with the power plug socket at the edge closest to you. L781 is in the top left quadrant of the board, about 2 inches in from left, 1 inch down from the top. For good measure, I also tried the solution that suggested trimming a millimeter of the end of the two data ribbons that plug into the smaller control board, although I couldn't see anything wrong with the data ribbons. I did this at the same time as resoldering L781 so not sure if it made any difference.
