LG KG800 Numeric Keypad Backlit??

Hi, I have had my chocholate (LG KG800) for 16 mths now, and just read in a forum, that the numeric keys are backlit! Is this true, as I have NEVER had my numeric keypad backlit, EVER! This has been a real pain when trying to place a call in dimly lit places or the dark. The phone was sent into a repair centre on a different warrantee matter, but it still was not backlit when it was returned to me. Can you please clarify. Cheers, Jules

    Thank you for the response. Mine has NEVER worked, very dim or not, from the day I got it. The fact that it does backlight is new to me, and the response I got from LG call centre was "don't worry about it if your phone still works". UMMM... not happy!! Phone out of warrantee, (of course) but I have requested a warrantee extension to repair the fault, but don't like my chances. People, be VERY wary of this phone, nice but no customer satisifaction from LG when things go wrong, and the chocolate has many glitches and issues...... Jules

I sent an email to lg´s customer service and the cleaver guy told me that the Chocolate doesn´t come with the backlight keypad. Lie! Mine didn´t work until one day messing around with it I manage to turn it on!! then i got myself into the beach...with my cell in my pocket. I put it in some dry rice (don´t know if you know this solution) for a couple of days and I got it back to work (rice absorbs all of the water from the cellphone). Now I needed to re-configure my LG and I can´t make the backlight to work anymore.
I´ll let you know of any progress.

Go to the power saving and turn it off, they might work then. Mine did for three days and then they went off again!!

Yes they are backlit but they light is very dim, If i slide mine open and wait for the screen to turn off then I can only slightly see the backlight going off, might just be a problem with mine to though :P

The numeric key pad on my keyboard does not work

There's usually a Numlock key that turns off the cursor movement and turns on the numeric keys. If it doesn't say "Num Lock" or something similar, you might need to press the Fn key with the F1-F12 key that looks like a numeric keypad. Pressing the Shift key while pressing a number on the numeric keypad should give a number output if the Num Lock is turned off, the cursor movement if Num Lock is on.

My numeric keyboard is not working, the num lock is on.

Have you tried booting up in safe mode to see if it does the same thing? Also check your keyboard to see if there is some type of key combination that locks or unlocks the numeric keypad. If so, usually you will have to hit the FN key or the ALT key or the CTRL key plus some other key to get it to toggle.

    My function key is on and i cant figure out how to turn it off


    To use the embedded keypad

    After pressing Fn+F8 to activate the numeric keypad, you must press the Lock key
    (in the top row of the keyboard) to turn number lock on or off.
    When number lock is on:
    • Keys change to the numeric or arithmetic designations printed on the right side of the
    keys in the numeric keypad area.
    • The Num Lock status indicator is lit.
    • To turn off the embedded keypad, press Fn+F8 again.

    For further reference of usage of Function keys, check the HP manual:

    Logitech MX 3200 wireless keyboard Numeric (right side) keypad does not work.

    maybe it is full of dust on those buttons. Try cleaning it with a duster of mini-brush because it interrupts the function.
