Hardware Troubleshooting Solution
Phone screen backlight won’t off problem sometimes can be complicated! I mean it could go beyond just settings as one might have thought earlier. The problem could be a hardware issue and can also be solved with a good level of troubleshooting.
You should ask yourself the following questions before going further:
Did the phone experienced water splash or water getting in to it in any way?
Does this happen when using a particular charger?
Did it happen after the phone fell hard on the floor?
Did a kid played with the phone inserting in to mouth especially the charging port part which is not saliva friendly?
If your phone was affected by any of the above conditions, then its a hardware problem! Two things are involved here on the part of solution. Firstly the phone will have to be serviced with Isopropyl solution or methylated spirit and dried in hot sun or with a dryer or a professional rework station if you like.
If the first option doesn’t solve the phone LCD screen backlight won’t off problem, then try to find out if there is a broken or bridging internal components that might be responsible for the problem….if you did all of these and it worked, then congrat! However, if you were unlucky, then consult the nearest expert GSM Engineer or Technician to save yourself the stress. Good luck with your devices.
