Re: blank screen after switching on the phone

No. You do not have to contact Nokia center to restore the software. You can follow below steps to restore the Nokia 3230 to original state. 1) Switch off the mobile 2) Hold *, 3 (number three button) and Green dial button at a time. 3) While above three buttons are pressed, switch on the 3230 mobile. Now it will format and restore the original OS. I have tried this on my Nokia 3230 mobile and it worked fine. Sam

My motorola rokr e6e just blank out and came up with a red screen saying BP_NOT_READY

It is possible that the phone has hung up because there are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memory card from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt files or media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafe sites. If so remove or format the card. Copy only valid files to the card and do a scan before it is replaced. Now replace the card and battery and switch on the phone. If the phone hangs up or is slow when it is switched ON , then it is confirmed that the software has errors and will need a reinstallation.

Blackberry screen is blank and indicater blinking but phone not getting rebooted

Sounds like a corrupted OS once again, try a battery pull if you haven't already.

Next you'll want to do a device wipe and fresh OS install, this is easily done with Desktop Manager or BBSAK

Good day. I have a HTC S710 about 2 years old. Having problems recently when i get blank screens and cannot access phone display to see contacts or anything. It is not a time out problem, because phone...


The problem is not a software problem that requires any for of updates or download, it is a hardware problem that requires you to take apart the phone and replace the flexi ribbon that connects the screen to the main board of the phone. The flexi ribbon is weak and need to be replaced. That is why the screen goes blank for a while.

To disassemble the phone, you will have to get a torx screwdriver, then you remove the back cover, the battery and your sim card if you use any, then you unhook the back of the phone and unscrew the screws you can see, then you slide a thing like a credit card around the edges of the phone, then you separate the front cover apart too, then you unscrew the screws around the panel then you release the screen gently, remove the flexi ribbon that connects the screen to the main board then replace it and reverse the process to reassemble the phone back together.

If you are not familiar with such technical activity, i will advice you seek the assistance of a repairer so as not to damage any component inside the phone.

Take care and good luck

I do not know what is wrong with my HTC S710. The screen go blank at intervals. what can I do to fix this.


The reason your phone goes blank at intervals is because there is a problem with the phone.

First, flash the phone with the appropriate software and cable, then you open up the phone with the appropriate screwdrivers and check if the screen connector also known as the flex is properly seated on the main board. Also check if the flex is damaged so you will be able to replace the flex with a new one.

Having done this, your phone will be in good condition once again.

Take care and good luck

I installed a software called flipdown screen and my nokia n81 only comming on and blanking off wat should i do

Don't worry this caused because of two reasons
1)flipdown application might be corrupted or
2)You would have installed some virus in the name of flipdown .

Due to these two reason the phone is behaving like this

First try this:
1)Click the MENU button continuously now you can see the application running behind the all the application and close it.and go to menu->application->application manager delete the flipdown application.

2)Your not even able to do any thing you have to reset the phone
Hard reset code is type *#7370#
default code is 12345 unless your network provider has changed.If it is changed you have to call him and ask him about the code.

Note:If your phone is not willing to start can try this.:
Press these buttons simultaneously for hard reset.
on/off + * + 3

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Email is blank (white screen only) when opening from HTC Diamond

I had the same problem and in my case it was due to needing to register the Chinese language software (CE star) on the phone. after registering properly screen displays normally. If you have this software (or a similar language encoding software) I think registering or removing the software may be a fix. Good luck.
