    Hi Everyone,

    I'm not sure if anyone of you guys are experiencing this, but I can't seem to set the backlight to stay on while playing a video. It always cuts off after like, 2 mins. I did read the help menu, but it still doesn't work.

    On Help Guide.
    By default, the backlighting is designed to turn off after a period of time to conserve battery power.
    On the Home screen, click the Media icon.
    Press the key > Media Options.
    Clear the Turn Off Auto Backlighting check box.
    Press the key > Save.

    I did all this and still no success, anyone else got any ideas what's up? Maybe I need to.... deleted everything off my media card and reload?

    Not a free option, but this app lets you assign this functionality to a whole bunch of apps, 3rd party included.

    One other thing, your original post seems backwards. If you want auto backlighting disabled you need to check the box, not uncheck it.
