The keyboard backlight on the T-Mobile myTouch Q by Huawei will not stay on while it is being used.The keyboard light is controlled by the brightness setting. When the brightness on the device is manually set above roughly 40%, the keyboard light may occasionally turn off even while in use. This is to conserve battery life.
To fix this issue:
- From the Home screen, press the Settings key.
- Tap Settings.
- Tap Display.
- Tap Brightness and select either:
- Automatic Brightness
- Manually change brightness below 30-40%
- Note: You may also use the Power Control Widget to do this.
