    Keyboard backlight is inconsistant

    The physical keyboard back-light on my Droid 4 is inconsistent .... works, then while I'm entering data (and there is no change to ambient lighting) it doesn't work ... and after a few moments it starts working again.

    Frankly, I'd like to switch a (software) switch so it works all the time?

    For what it is worth, I'm not rooted, and don't want to root my ICS-based D4.

    Any suggestions?

    It seems that we're S.O.L. for now. What a dumb idea, not having a manual toggle for the keyboard backlight.

    That pretty much sums up the whole I.C.S. P.O.S. VZN is about to lose a 300.00 a month customer.

    I'm not sure it's a VZN problem.


    Had the problem in the past but just tried to note a pattern and it worked perfectly. Another similar glitch is the backlighting of the menu, home, return and search keys.

    do you mean that you were able to keep the physical keyboard light on for the duration of your typing?

    Yes, it's seemed to sort itself out. How long it stays that way is anyone's guess.

    what pattern did you note? I just noticed that I have to keep the keyboard out of the light for it to light up. What a hassle.
