Ademco 20-SE, 6160 keypads

I am having a problem with two 6160 keypads connected to an ademco 20-SE control. Both keypads alpha display backlight don't come on until a key multiple times. Example, display does not light until four digit access code and away or stay is entered. I also read that when you enter a delayed entry door the display backlight should light up, this also doesn't happen. Both keypads show address of "31". Any help would be appreciated.

The Vista 20se is an older model, and there's really no software configuration for the backlight feature. The slight difference between the original 6139 and newer 6160 models may be the issue, but there's no adjustment for this, that I am aware of.
