The BlackBerry has backlight or screen delay problems. how to fix it

Several people on some common BlackBerry forums have mentioned that their device is having backlight problems. These run the gamut from being unable to see the backlight at all to the screen delay flashing off too soon. Depending on which model you have, you can go into your Options or Preferences and select Screen/Keyboard. Here, you can adjust the backlight settings to your preferences.
You will want to set the Backlight Timeout to your preferred time setting. This should extend the screen delay and stop it from coming on too soon. Users have reported that this often works, especially if you have an erratic or weak backlight. If this doesn’t work, you can install BBLight, a freeware program that users have found to make their backlight settings more accessible.
