    Default Why isn't my soft key buttons lighting up anymore on S5?

    Ok the soft keys down by the home button on the bottom....mine do not light anymore. Is anyone else having this problem? I have them set to the 1.5 second time out. Even when I put them on "always on"they don't light up. I sent a message to samsung and they haven't replied yet.

    Looks like they were just able to fix it by fixing the light duration.
    It can work while still having broken/failed LEDs.

    Mine did the same. I turned off Power Saving and they started working as normal again.

    hope this helps.

    Check if power saving mode is on. Power saving turns off haptic feedback and softkey lights.

    I'm not sure when, how or why I changed it... but mine did the same thing... I went to Settings>Display>touch key light duration.... make sure it doesn't say, "Always off"
