Hi, my Dad owns the HTC one m8 and it did something very funny today.
As he held it the blacklight turned off. He didn't touch the power key at all. After many presses of the power key, the screen backlight turned it self on.
Then later this evening it decided that the blacklight has finally killed itself completely and if you haven't guessed already it's like trying to play a gameboy in the dark. You can't see a thing on the screen.
I had to hold up my phone with the touch on to see the screen. Took about 30 minutes to unlock, because it was secured by pin number! 😂
I've set the phone to no lock screen for now.
Is there anyway to fix this and is this a common problem among HTC one owners?
I'm planning to call my network provider tomorrow and see if warranty will cover it.
I'd also like to mention that the phone is in excellent condition and hasn't got a mark on it. Never dropped once. The handset is 7 months old.
