iPod Backlight won't turn off

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
After a recent charge, the backlight won't turn off after I set it for 5 or 10 seconds. I can turn it off completely, but don't want to. Any suggestions, fixes? Thanks.

suggestion: move it to Digital Hub.

I explained it completely. The backlight not turning off no matter what I do except to turn it on always is self-explanitory. Perhaps you don't know the answer, so be nice and let somebody else respond rather then giving me a lecture.

You can try to reset your settings. Maybe that will work.
make sure you can retrieve your music files though.
good luck

happens to me too, just give it a reboot (hold menu and play at the same time for about 10 seconds) thats should do the trick.
