    My screen does that too, when I turn it on the entire screen is black..but it doesn't turn itself off the screen just stays black. And I don't really know what to do about it because even if I press keys, they may be working but i can't SEE to fix the problem

    My screen is covered with little black dots. I feel very frustrated. I can not get anything else. Thanks

    I have this problem too and the solution is not that the contrast is too dark. It's so frustrating!

Try 2nd Down Arrow. Your contrast may be turned up too high. This can appear to happen with new batteries.

The screen is black when I turn it on. I've replaced the batteries and no change. I try to change the contrast and nothing happens. It is a couple years old, but I should still work.

Check that the terminals in the battery compartment are clean and shiny. Remove any powder left after battery leakage. Insert fresh batteries in calculator. Make sure you respect the polarity diagram. +-+- (Many malfunctions come from incorrectly placed batteries).

Press [2nd] key and release it.
Press and hold [UpArrow] until screen is dark enough.

To lighten screen

Nothing happens on my dash


First make sure your phone is fully charged. Then check...
It may be the storage card - if you take the storage card out it will boot up and you can put it back in. - pain in the a## but it may work. Or Try taking the SIM card out, boot it up, turn it off, replace the card, and turn it on again.
Last resort is a hard reboot. If you did a hard reboot and nothing happened then you did not do it successfully. To do a hard reboot.

- with the phone powered off
- press the two soft keys, yes the left and right soft keys which are the two dash keys labeled - -
- while keeping it pressed, press the power button down
- keep the power button pressed down for 1 - 2 seconds and then release the power button while still holding down the two soft keys. Keep holding down the soft keys until a black screen appears and prompts appear
- now release the soft keys and follow prompts
- if you dont see the black screen with the reset option, pull the battery out, reinsert it and repeat the above steps
- when you see the black screen with the reset option, press the Send button to confirm the reset.
