I count 2 opening curly braces and only 1 closing curly brace.

That was my problem too. Just had 1 too few closing curlys on the first media query. Good looking out!

It looks like your @media is missing a curly bracket to close it off. Right now I think the media query closes off but leaves your body background styling open.

try this its work @media screen and (max-width: 480px) { body { background-color:#4682B4; }
