Default Home Keys not lighting up...

Hi All,

I have a HTC Desire C running Android 4.0.3, originally on 3 Network, but unlocked to all networks.

The problem I have is that the home Keys do not light up. Proximity sensor works fine, If I cover the sensors to the right of the HTC logo, the screen goes dark, If I use the phone in the dark, the screen dims as it should but the keys do not light up.

I've downloaded a few apps to test the sensors & the values changes on proximity & light sensors as I cover them so I know the sensors are good.

I've checked that Auto Brightness is enabled, I've disabled it & enabled it several times, works fine in different light levels as it auto adjusts - rebooted phone with battery out etc & cannot get them to light up.

Other than taking it back to the store, does anyone have any ideas?

Was thinking of trying to reload the phone without 3's custom software on it to see if it's something in their ROM.

it's a little annoying trying to guess where the keys are in the dark!

Cheers,

Lee

I think they're not supposed to light up. My desire c has the same behaviour, I guess htc was thinking that it wouldn't be that hatrd to touch the left, right and middle of the bottom of your phone even in the dark... It is a bit annoying, but it takes only some getting used to.
