Apparently this issue with the button light always on is caused by condensed water vaporss in the phone, either from rain or staying in the bathroom with the phone, etc. As we all know water and electronics don't get along to good. I myself have the same problem with my 5230, the difference is, after I reset to factory settings the three buttons stay off for good, they only go on and stay on after I recharge, with the phone off, and after I start it back up. I'm trying to dry my phone over a heat source that is not excessively hot, like the back of a TV or a dvdplayer,etc to see if it will fix the issue.
The funny thing is, and I suggest everybody with this problem try this, my phone lights present the normal behavior of the button lights dimming down with the screen and turning of at phone lock only when I'm recharging the phone while it's turned off.
These means the phone can also perform corectly from this point of view but why won't it do the same when it's turned on.

To, Occi: You saved me ))). This is the answer - the settings I couldn't think of by myself.
I had the problem with the xpressmusic button (the light was always on)
I found the solution. I remembered that this happened to me when I was charging the phone.
I just took out the battery and then I plugged the charger. The light turned on when I plugged the charger but after a few seconds it turned off. Then I put the battery again and the **bleep**ing light turned on again.
So, I tried again but this time I waited for 1 minute. After this, I connect tha battery and the light was off!!!!
- Take out the battery
- Without battery, connect the charger to your cellphone.
- The light will turn on and after some seconds it will turn off
- Wait 1 minute
- COnnect the battery and there you are!!
I hope that it works for you. I lost one complete day until I found this solution.
I have done exactly the same what you have said, My phone is working rocking now ... thanxxxx
I gone to a trip and got my phone dried with water since then i was getting this problem.
i have put it on .. TV set (running TV) and now its working fine
Im sorry to bump this very old topic, but as my 5800 has the same problem because of water damage, i have one question. Is the problem in phone or the lights? I have chance to get a old 5800 from my friend which has 100% functional button lights. So, is this problem caused by the phone water damage, or are the lights damaged, so i mean would it help at all to change red, white and green button thing and the part which has front camera and that light? Is the problem in phone or the lights, if its in phone, it wouldnt help to change the buttons, right?
