Re: backlight issue when charge

I see something similar on mine; the backlighting on my device will be very bright for a couple of minutes and then dim by ~30%.  The device is typically fully charged, not sure why the backlighting is changing.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

Please try the following while the pone is ON bull the battery and leave it out for a minute,

replace and let the device reboot fully 1-2 minutes, try it in the charger.
