Keypad Light

Hi, when I boot my Blackberry Bold 9780, the keypad illuminates and the full backlight is displayed.


However after reboot, the light goes off and does not come back on, this makes typing really difficult at nights as well.


I was told it is a software glitch since the phone clearly shows that the backlight is working when it boots and a flash will rectify the problem.


Can anyone offer me the direct step by step to successfully flash my phone?
