NOKIA 3230 snow screen!?

Hi, i recently got my phone from a mate, it was working fine for about a month. The problem is i tryed to turn it on the one morning and the screen was a snowy screen, eventually it shows the nokia logo but out of place on the screen and wont show anything else, i'm suspecting a virus but not really sure and was wondering is there any way i could fix this problem? is it possible to reinstall software on the phone? thanx!

    Thing is i'v used the sim for a wile now in diff phones and the sim works perfectly, so it has to be the phone it self.

Haven't heard of any mobile virus with a snowy screen. try these links - virus scan programs for mobiles. Sorry I can't be of more help. Try a hard reset by removing the battery, or by pressing *#7370# and after you do that, it will ask you for unlock code which will be 12345. but if there's no display...

    Try to remove the SIM, maybe also risk putting it in another, unused phone, or put another phones SIM into yours, see what happens.

    Good luck...

Won't turn on

You should take the phone to a mobile service center and have them try to revive your dead board but i think you may need to purchase a new mainboard or new phone.
