On power K850i not light in lcd

So if the K850i LCD won't light either the backlight or the LCD itself has gone bad. It is a fairly easy procedure to replace yourself and you can pick up the LCD from ebay for 15-25 dollars.

Here is a guide for it and it also includes links to buy a replacement display:

G-drive is not working

Try removing battery and unplugging AC adapter for 5 minutes.

On startup press repeatedly the eject button on CD before system starts loading.

If that does not work , you will need to take the computer to a repair shop, as DVD unit must be disassembled to take disk out.

This sounds to me like a problem with your battery .

Have you ever left your phone to charge over night ?

If so you could of had a faulty charger which would lead to your phone getting overheated and potentially has damaged the battery.

Try someone elses battery who has the same phone .
Once you have tried this and its still not working with a different battery , take it back to your network provider .

I hope this has helped .

K850i screen

if you only bought it 2 months ago it will be under warranty
you should send it back to be serviced as it sounds like a faulty LCD and it will need to be replaced
