Question about Handspring Treo 90 Handheld
The backlight on my TREO 90 quit working.
The Treo 90 had a problem with backlight failure, which Handspring acknowledged and began fixing back in 2002. However, their guideline was that if your 90 did not fail within 6 weeks of use, it did not have the defective part responsible for the failure.
Your backlight probably has just died of old age. It is EXTREMELY difficult to replace just the backlight (I've tried). If you search long enough on eBay, though, you can probably find a 90 with a broken case, dead battery, broken motherboard, or some other ailment, but with a functioning screen/keyboard assembly, including backlight. It's a pretty simple matter to replace the screen/keyboard assembly (there's a screw hidden under the battery that holds it into the front frame).
