I have the same model but 4g. I often notice the same problem, but once i step out of the full sun/bright lights, i notice that it is infact dimly lit. This can be adjusted by opening settings > display > brightness > turn off automatic brightness and set the level to at least %50.
now, if your screen is literally too dim to see, try this : Press the power button quickly, now unlock the screen by sliding your finger from the bottom center up to the top center and releasing, all in one fluid motion. This is the default screen-lock gesture and the brightness, if this is indeed the issue, should go up one notch upon unlock. From there, follow the above procedure to turn up the brightness.
ok , you have checked the brightness settings, check battery power settings as well. you may have to do a hard reset so back up your info. If doing a hard reset, pull the battery and charge it on its own if you have a cradle. Hope this works for you
funny thing... the older palm treos like this one have some glitches. these glitches can normally be fixed by changing some of the settings.
1) go to your home screen, and select PREFS
3) set your brightness level all the way to the right (NOTE: it takes more power to dim the screen then it does to brighten the screen.)
4) set auto off after: to the highest number allowed
Make sure the device is on before performing hard reset. To hard reset, press and hold the power button and press in on the reset button (reset hole) on the back of the unit for about 2-3 seconds. Release both buttons and you will see a confirmation screen asking you if you would like to clear all data in memory. To do so press the Contacts button. To cancel press the Mail button.
IT may be that the mainboard is faulty and would need to be replaced.
Had the same problem. Did some research and fixed the problem by performing a "soft reset". Tap the reset indentation on the back once quickly. Do NOT hold it in or you will lose all saved data. Mine's working fine now.
Holding down the record button on these units turns the backlight on and off, since this is hardware controlled you should try this first.
If you've performed a hard reset and held down record then this is most likely a physical fault, check with Dell to find out your warranty status and find out about the availability of replacement parts.
Have you tried the folowing:
Go to start, select setting, and select system st the bottom, and select Backlight. In backlight you will fid different options at the bottom, select brightness and you can set your brightness levels on your battery mains aor power mains. I suggest you keep it low as it saves battery enegy.
Did you try to set the Backlight on in the control panel? (settings>system>brightness)
The brightness is often automatically set to 0.
If you did this already and it still doesn't work, probably try an email.
First, to dim/undim the screen, hold down the power button for a few seconds. A quick press will turn it on/off. Also, when dimmed, if you tap the screen, it should be fully lit.
FYI...to change the brightness in either the plugged-in or battery mode, hold in the scroll dial on the left-hand side and press the navigation button (big round one on the front) either up (brighter) or down (dimmer).
As for the time, tap Start >> Settings >> System (tab) >> Clock and see if your time is off by 12 hours.
