Mogul Screen black

The phone was wroking fine but then the screen started freezing on me so i decided to turn it off and back on. Well when i tried turning it back on the screen just stays completely black. The buttons light up and the service button flashes but i cant see anything...ay way i could possibly fix this? oh yeah and pressing the reset button on the button doesnt help either.

    I'm having the same problem. Thanks for the reset tip...but this is only a temporary fix. I've shut down my phone numerous times and it still reacts the same way. I'm thinking about reflashing my phone to see if it helps :(.

    Whenever I press the power button on the side for sleep mode, or the phone otherwise goes to sleep, I come back to a dark screen. The backlight is on, and the device appears to be operating otherwise normally.

    When I open the slide, a chime plays, the phone attempts to change the orientation, there is some visual artifacting (lines mostly), and then it freezes. A soft reset brings me back to the same dark screen.

    I am running the latest ROM as of the time of this posting, 3.5~ I believe, and the issue persisted across the 2.0~, then 3.3~ ROMs I tried.

    I have tried disabling the sprint theme as was suggested elsewhere, but this not appear to make a difference.

    A soft reset will eventually bring the phone back to life, although it usually takes many tries, although trial and error seems to show that it's best to do it right as the phone finishes booting, which is indicated by the red and green "phone" buttons simultaneousy flashing on the bottom of the phone.

    For now I've just set up the phone so it doesn't go to sleep, but this obviously drains the battery quite quickly, and does not resolve the keyboard issue at all. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated, I really otherwise like the phone.

What can i do about my phone's screen being black when its turned on?

When your screen is cracked you can assume it is defect. If it a new phone, you could visit a phone repair shop and ask what it will cost to repair this. If you have a insurance first ask the insurance company how to solve. If you have to pay yourself, decide in the shop if you give it for repair or you buy a new one.

My HTC Mogul keeps freezing, wont even get past the main screen when I start it up, I loaded a larger file onto it and started it up, since then it hasn't worked. Anyway to do a hard reset by hand without...

you can try a hard reset. Hold down the left and right softkeys (the two buttons above the windows button and the ok button) and use the stylus in the reset button (bottom of phone just below the sd slot) This will erase verything off your phone, but should fix the problem.

Pantech duo problems

My Phone had the same problem. Atnt said it happens when there is too much data on the phone. You can try soft resetting it which is taking out the battery. There is also hard resetting which takes everything out but I didn't want to do that so I'm not sure how it would be done. I solved my problem by taking out the SD card and turning the phone back on. Then I deleted files in the phone that I don't need. After putting back the SD card I deleted files off of that too. Now it seems to work fine.

good luck
