    My bb backlight won't come on but in the right lighting you can see the apps it's just so dim so you really can't see anything to use it. The keyboards light will come on though.
    My backlight was set to 2 mins before shuting off so its okay there
    I just can't figure out what to do

    My question to whoever can help me is what do I need to do to fix this problem?
    I'm happy to do it myself if it doesn't require any soddering.
    Could someone please point me in the right direction : )?

    I have a blackberry 8700g

    Have you tried to pull the battery while the device was on?

    I would give that a shot first, and if still there is no backlight, i would just double check your brightness settings as well.

    if still no backlight, probably your LCD display has gone bad...

    I just tried pulling the battery no luck there.
    Too dim to see what Im doing to check backlight settings
    So your probably right about the LCD being bad

    Do you have any suggestions on what I should do to get it fixed?

    Depends if it is still under the warranty. Try contacting Tmobile, and see what they say it would be considered, and if its not under warranty, how much it would be. There are plenty of places to purchase the LCD from, if you are savy enough to put it in.

    if not check out BlackBerry Repair Shop - A full line of RIM BlackBerry repair services and BlackBerry parts for all BlackBerry handheld devices they do blackberry repairs as well.
