Help Pls! How can I control the lighting on my Curve 8310's Keyboard?

 

Is there a way to either "dim" or "turn off" the lights on the keyboard? e.g. when using my new BB 8310 in a dark room, the keyboard lighting seems like a small sun going up when I check messages.  Greatly appreciated!

Hi and welcome to the forums!

Try this:

OPTIONS - SCREEN AND KEYBOARD - BLACKLIGHT BRIGHTNESS - AUTO DIM BACKLIGHT

See if setting these options to your preferences helps.

 

Thanks, Please let me know!

Thanks, and I tried that before when I began this quest. That seems to control the backlight and screen, but does not really help with the keyboard illumination. That stays pretty constant. Any ideas of stopping the lighting on the keys themselves?

Hi, according to my forums searches and Google serches, there is no manual control or settings for the Keypad backlight, only for the Display.

Sorry!

If this answers your question please resolve the post.

If you need more information, please ask.

Thanks!

Many thanks! That is what I was afraid of, I'd hunted quite a bit and couldn't find anything. Greatly appreciate the quick feedback!
