A new LCD will probably take care of it. The LCD can be gotten form ebay for about 50 dollars. Most of them come with good instructions and the screwdriver you will need.

Sidkeick 3 backlight

Have you tried checking the Battery and Display settings from the main screen Settings menu? There is an option to enable or disable the backlight, as well as set the brightness.

There is also a setting called "Use ambient light sensor", which sets the backlight and keyboard light to only turn on if it is dark when you are using it.
