    Default Screen Brightness Issue

    I've had my Shift for almost 9 months, and I've recently started having an issue with the screen.

    My screen works just fine during powerup... I can clearly see the Sprint screen, HTC screen, and 4G screens.
    I used to have my brightness set on the lowest setting possible (to conserve battery life). I think that's 10%. One day, my screen decided to just not turn on.. my keyboard lights and the home/menu/back/search button lights are working just fine.
    I can't figure out what's wrong, and I'm hoping someone here on Android Central will have a fix for me.

    By the way, I do have insurance.

    Possibly related issue I've always had mine set to Auto-Brightness and many times I've noticed it was too bright I went in the settings and on its own it had switched to 100%

    Mine was having an issue when on auto brightness, would be fine and visible open, then would go to like 1% brightness upon closing the keyboard, yes dim enough to where if you weren't in a dark room, you would think the screen was off. Changing brightness back to a manual setting fixed that for me

    Swyped from my Photon using t-talk.
