Blackberry Playbook Backlight

I have had a Blackberry Playbook for just over a year now, however recently the backlight will not operate when i switch it on.

When i press the rear of the tablet the backlight comes on?

Re: Blackberry Playbook Backlight

I have updated the OS and it is still not working?

 

Not sure why pushing the back of the tablet allows the light to come on?

Re: Blackberry Playbook Backlight

yep, you're right. it didn't work...it was wishful thinking.  

 

Mine lights up only if i put a lot of pressure on the back of the tablet, so any help with this problem will be very appreciated.
