    My Treo 680 had a keyboard flicker since new (a known issue). Recently I noticed the keyboard light is not working. When I adjust the brightness slider the keyboard light turns on and remains on until I turn the Treo off. Once the Treo is turned on again, the keyboard lights will not work until I adjust the brightness slider again. I have a number of palm applications installed. Nothing that should turn the keyboard lights off.
    I searched for this problem and could only find the light flicker issue.

    It might make your life a little easier if you install Hobbyist Software's free Keylights Toggle and assign it a Favorite key:

    ...but if you really want to get to the bottom of this, I suggest that you hard reset the Treo and test it before you restore your apps. If it works then, you know that the problem is software, not hardware, based.

    Slein,

    My wife ran into the same issue with her 680 form AT&T. It's funny that you found the same temporary work around that I did by adjusting the brightness. She only has a few apps loaded on her Treo so I find it hard to believe that it's a third party application causing the issue.

    A simple soft reset solved the problem. Bill and Scjeimanrj thanks for the help.

    Interesting, I had this one time on my 755 running PTunes and no keyboard lights unless I adjsted the brightness. Then soft reset fixed it.
