Blank or White screen on new Motorola Krzr k1 cell phone

Just bought a new Motorola Krzr K1 and was experiencing blank screens or white screens. The battery is fully charged. Now the screen is totally blank and will not come back on. The keypad does light up. I have tried taking the battery out and putting it back in to no avail. Any suggestions?

Thanks. Same problem! I got the phone from a friend who's had it for 2 years. I've had it for exactly one week. BRAND new battery. And he never had any issues with it. But all of a sudden its got all these malfuntions.
What's happening is I'll turn it on and the screen will be black or white. Then other times its normal. If I shut it, the front screen is alright for about 30 seconds. Then it turns bright blue. Other times it shows the Verizon logo.
My calls are working okay..for now. But then I tried texting someone and the keypad just stopped working. Also tried using mobile IM. Wouldn't send or recieve anything.
My service icon keeps going from 4 bars (which I always have at my house) to no service.
From the second I got it, I've been charging it for 12 hours and it lasts 12 more if I'm lucky.
Is anyone else having ALL these problems?!

Take the phone to a mobile service center and have the flexcable replaced on the phone.

If the phone still works, check to see if the left side of the hinge (when the phone is open and facing you) is loose. If you can wiggle the top 1/2 of the phone, the hinge is damaged, therefore damaging the flex cable that runs through it. If that is the case, replace the hinge assembly and the flex and you're good.

The K1 is no joke to take apart. Flex replacement requires full disassembly. I would recommend checking out www.wirelessunlimitedinc.com, or www.myspace.com/wirelessunlimited to have it done professionally, less than Motorola will charge you.

Or give it a shot if you want, you need a T5 Torx and lots of patience and care.

Krzr wont turn on.keypad flashing??


Either your battery is completly dead - and thats easy to replace for under $40 - otherwise it may be your flex cable - but the k1 is built stronger than the razr ever was - did you drop water on it? check if the white sticker under the battery is still white and not pink

found the solution to the white screen! it's the flip sensor.. what you have to do is open the phone hard and fast... make it so when you flip it open, the sensor knows when to turn the screen on and off.. this may take up to 5 or more times.. jus keep opening it hard and it will eventually work!!!
