Sony Ericsson W850i White screen problem

When I switch on phone all I get is a white screen. If I try to charge the phone the white screen stays on for the duration of the time the charger is connected to phone. I have tried the battery in another phone and it is fine. I have tried another battery in the phone and the problem persists so it is definitely a problem with the phone. I suspect either a problem with the screen or the phone may require flashing. If anyone knows how to flash a w850i I'd be most grateful I already have the DCU-65 USB cable. I think this iswhat you use to flash the phone

    I reflashed the phone and it works fine. There was nothing wrong with the screen at all. The w850i dismantling info was useful though.

Dear,
its the strip problem.. the strip, that connect the display section to the other circuitry...
this kind of problem mostly comes in flip or slide phone as u have..
go to a repairshop. they will see if it is repairable or if not then they will change it..
sometimes it damages from one side that can be repaired.
hope it will work. so dont forget to rate
regards,

Hi. It's most likely the ribbon cable or the LCD screen that needs replacing. Have a look here for a guide and to buy the parts you need http://www.formymobile.co.uk/Dismantle/w850disassembly.htm

Retrieval of contacts from my phone after the screen goes white


Hi,

Firstly, did you try removing the battery from the phone and leaving it out overnight? This might solve you white screen issue. Secondly, is your phone able to boot into file transfer mode? The final solution would be to flash your phone to fix the firmware and then you will have access to your data. Here is more info:

It talks about the W850 but it applies to the K800 as well. Good luck.

Big problem!!!


As long as the phone is flashing white and black , you need to have the firmware reflash back into the phone...so you can do this by going to www.topsony.com this is a pay site not a free one or take it to a mobile center and have it reflash there as well.
