Same here. the phone has not had any major problems for 10 months. I was on the phone when there were two separate incoming calls. I hang up and call the first one. Hang up once again, open the phone book to make a new call. The phone got stuck in the phone book, backlight became very strong. It was like this for 5-10 seconds, until i took the battery out. Now it won't "boot". The backlight, notification light and the ******** indicate that the phone turns on, but it doesn't continue from there.

    or some other software?

Same problem here, sent it for repairs. got reply that "repair is not possible" so they sent me replacement. Got it today. Brand new and DOA. EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM - wouldn't turn on, just light, vibration and backlight then turns back off. It looks like Nokia QA is a joke. So I have to send it back to the service center. What a hassle...

    update: I got the replacement phone to boot. All I did was charge it with original Nokia charger instead of some aftermarket one I have been using before. Now the phone works. Go figure.

does the phone still function normally otherwise? It sounds like what we call "the white screen of death." Basically, the wiring for the screen is shot but otherwise the phone is pefrectly fine. Very common on flip and slider phones.

E51. when switched on, only shows Noika on white background, and will not respond. there is nothing else on the screen

This generally happens if you are using a hign volume SD card such as a 4 GB one and have a lot of files there. Then nokia when booted may try to scan all those files and takes a lot of time.
Remove your SD card and move most of insignificant data onto your computer using a card reader or the nokia usb cable. Then put the elmost-emptied SD card in your cel phone and try to reboot the phone.
Hope this helps.
Otherwise visit a authorized nokia service centre, they will upgrade the nokia's and will fix application problems if any.
