    This is driving me crazy!

    Screen won't turn off when I press the red/end call button after checking the time or wanting to go dark while listening to Pandora. It only

    Any ideas?

    I do not have ATK or similar I do not have Panda Home or similar...

    thanks, everyone!

    Do you have flashnotify? That was causing the same thing on mine, when I uninstalled it it went away.

    i know for flashnotify, if you don't go into your dialer and check a missed call, it will keep flashing.

    as for the OP - do you have 'use wireless networks' on under security & locations?

    It did it even after I checked the call. It was driving me nuts.

    No Flash Notify and Wireless Networks are off...All I am trying to do is save battery and having scree timeout at 8 seconds was also a pain so I set it at minute.

    I have no idea what caused it but it is recent in the last week

    Do you have the app 'spare parts'? If yes, what do you have your 'end button behavior' set as? If no, then get it and check the end button behavior.:)

    My Moment did that one time. Had to pull the battery to get it to stop. I even took it up to the Sprint store just to have them document the issue since the phone is such a POS.

    I started this thread a few months back and got a lot of replies check it out... Doing a factory data reset will easily fix this... just make sure to use mybackup pro and sync all your google stuff

    Spare parts works but that just ignores the issue... eventually the problems on this phone build up over time and unfortunatly for me factory data resets become necessary... But after I do it it orks geat and take me maybe a half hour to reload everything and have it back exactly the way it was

    Also make sure you get the new eclair.dj07 update it works well
