My Droid 3 overheated and now it looks like the backlight isnt working, any suggestions?
Return for a new one?
Shouldn't be overheating to the point of causing damage. Take it in for a warranty replacement.
end of line...
Did you take it in? Was there any explanation for the backlight failing or did they give you a new one.
There seem to be several complaints regarding the heat these phones generate (at times). I would be interested in finding out how Verizon handled this for you.

I have also had my phone get up to 123 degrees while playing a game for 20 min...
It could have something to do with the dual core processor in this phone. I downloaded Temp+CPU widget which will show the current temperature of the device. I'm not sure what is a dangerous temp for a mobile device, I know desktop processors will take quite a bit of heat but thats different.
Theoretically, they would have designed the phone to shut off when a certain temperature was surpassed. That being said, a hardware defect like a bad thermometer is always a possibility.
