I have two BCD396XT's. An older one from when they were first released and a newer one I bought a couple of months ago. The keypad light on the older one is nice and bright and matches the brighness of the display. The newer one has a very weak dim keypad light. This could be due to one of two things. Either the led's they used on the the newer one are different or the translucent rubbery keypad piece is not as translucent on the newer one. Does anyone know which of these it is? If the rubbery keypad piece itself is what is different they I may switch them and put the older 396's keypad piece in the newer scanner.
