Hi Ken, Unfortunalty it's about 90% certain you need a new screen . Its not economical to fit a "new" one as they are very expensive so its best to look out for a used but broken tomtom on Ebay. Make sure you buy one with a good screen though. Swapping the screen isn't too difficult for someone with some Electronic DIY skills but you will need the special 'star' screwdrivers ( often known as Torx ) sets to get into the casing . Once inside , its fiddly but do-able. You should only pay out about £20 max for a broken TomTom , if you don't see any at that price , wait a few days and you will see something eventually. I might be able to help you as I do have several broken tom's here but with good screens , however it depends what model you have. If you are in UK , let me have some contact / email and we can get in touch if you want to go that route. Good Luck. ....

My screen will not illuminate, but when slide the phone open to expose the keyboard, the keyboard is lit up. I can tell that the phone is on because when I touch the touchscreen, I feel the 'vibrate' of...

hello, before i tell you the problem i have few things to clarify, for your information the screen works with two components the display and the back-light , in order to see what is displayed you need the back-light (this is that you change levels as brightness), the touch screen works separately in top of display
  • You can't see any light in the screen what so ever (low brightness)?, when the phone is slide up and slide down state.
  • Go to a bright-light lamp, bring the phone close to the lamp tilt the phone slightly in either ways and see whether you can see the display (menu or icons)
if you agree with my points, you have dead screen back-light and need to be replaced,

Hi Rozz,

That is the LCD screen and the backlight has evidently burned out. See if you can find a broken Eclipse of the same model on Ebay and replace your LCD screen.
