More specifically, the screen is always on (as in, if a song is playing the album cover will constantly be displayed with the backlight). I usually have the backlight set at 2 seconds, so that after then the screen will shut off and only the music will be using up battery. But, lately, the menu and backlight are always on. I've scoured the settings and menus many times but have found no solution. I've even tried resetting the settings and re-configuring them to my liking. Nothing. Again, I've tried putting my backlight back to 2 seconds, but no dice. I have the ipod nano with the video camera! It's orange! Thanks so much for any help anyone can offer!
