Re: 8525 smart phone screen
Have you dropped your phone a lot? some times that can smash the LED screen on your phone which will create the blog you are speaking of. I've seen that in a few phones, two were family members of mine. There was not really any way around it. If you have the replacement plan from your provider you'd be able to pay a small fee to fix it otherwise they will replace it if they cant fix it--depending on the plan and provider of course.
Also, make sure to recycle your phone to prevent lead/mercury from contaminating the land fills. There are various places you can do that even at your phone provider in case you need to get a new phone.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I just fixed mine. No ring or external sounds following a short drop. Found a loose internal header on the back, right side of the phone.
Remove 4 screws (note will void warranty)
Starting from top, carefully de-attach rear plastic cover.
Inspect. Header on right side as you look at the back of the phone has black/white wire going to speaker.
Re-install in reverse order.
I have a small solution to what all of you are having with the black screen. I had the same problem so, what you want to do is keep pressing the power button. You do not turn the phone off, you will just put it in standby mode and then back on. If you keep doing that the screen will turn back on but you can not let the back light go out.
Try changing batteries, it might be that your phones batteries are dead.if not connect to USB and try changing your ROM ( operating system for your phone ) there are various other aspects too. check www.xdadevelopers.com for more info if problem persists after change of battery.
I believe I've figured out what caused my white screen problem. I finally broke down and purchased a nice holster for my 8525. It had a magnetic catch to keep it closed. Within a couple of days I experienced my first white screen. I thought that was pretty wierd, but thought it must just need to be re-booted. Later that night the same thing happened. Throughout the weekend it happened many more times. I got on the internet to see if anyone else was having the same problem...OMG. In site after site the same thing; my 8525 has developed a white screen. I came across one where the writer mentioned that he had just purchased a case with a magnetic closure. I took mine out of the case I'd just purchased, changed the battery, and turned it back on. I have not had a white screen since. I'm back to a velcro closure forever! Good luck.
I had a similar problem, 80% battery phone randomly shut itself off and would not start again. no lights if I plugged in charger or anything to indicate phone was getting juice. Found a diagram of the motherboard, located the fuse and operated on my phone. If I touched the 2 ends of the fuse with tweezers and plug in cord, got the red light with no battery. This indicated fuse bad. put a little trail of sodder to connect the 2 ends of fuse and put battery in and presto, I now have working phone with no power fuse. Could burn up some day but was going to be trashed anyway as out of warranty.
