    HI, I just got my Touch and the screen wont light up, I've charged it and it shows the battery is full but the backlight wont turn on. I can barely see the screen to go to settings > brightness to check, auto-brightness is turned on (I turned it off and it still wont work). The backlight did light up for mere split-seconds when i pressed the power button (so it does work i guess) but now it doesnt light up at all. Can anyone help?

    Well it sounds like the backlight is physically working - but the software is messed up.

    I'd suggest firstly plugging it into the mains or a computer for power, and turn off auto backlight and raise the backlight slider to maximum (full right). You can always use a flash light to help see what's on screen.

    If that doesn't work try a full restore.

    Else take it back to the store.
