Remove the back cover, Remove the battery, if the phone is GSM take the little card out of the back of phone by sliding the metal cover in proper direction. Should be arrows. Put the Sim card back in battery back in then turn phone on. If this doesn't work let me know. Main thing is reseating the sim card. (this assuming you a service provider that requires a sim card. )

Cell phone dysfunction


I am not sure on your phone but the screen on my wife's u740 turned white right after I dropped it. I had to get a new phone because I didn't look into replacing the lcd first. That was the discription of my problem from verizon was a pressure crack in the LCD. I hope that helps.

Sidekick 3 white screen


Did you by chance drop the phone recently?

A loose cable for the lcd can cause this or a bad lcd.

You need to disassemble it to take a look.

You will need a set of Torx screwdrivers to get it open.

White screen


I had this problem too. My razrs screen would just go white every 15 minutes maybe, and i would have to turn it off and back on.There was a white line at the bottom of the screen also, so i went to http://direct.motorola.com/hellomoto/motosupport/source/SoftwareUpdateSummary.asp?country=&language=&web_page_name=SUPPORT&strCarrierId=US%20Cellular&strPhone=V3c&strCable=Mini%20USB%20Data%20Cable and downloaded thee software update. after it was finished the white line went away the screen never went white and it fixed everything

My phone displays a white main screen


My Solution: Heat it up by just sitting on it or holding it in your hands// Take the battery out and back in/ Try keeping the battery out of it for a full day
My Story :) My mom dropped the phone in the dishes because she was drunk haha, I quickly took out the battery, but when the next day came by I looked at the phone and saw the same problem everyone here has. I kept replacing the battery on the hope it would just magically fix itself. Now 2 days from when it dropped in water, I kept flipping it, replaced the battery again (just taking it out and back in) after I sat on it a while, possibly the heat somehow helped it to work again.. I'm amazed it works haha, it was in the water fully submerged for half a min when I had to snatch it out of the dishes But, it is most likely that I took the battery out, the battery is the thing that ruins electronics, just remember to take it out if you drop it in water. Good luck. If worst comes to worst and your going to buy a new phone, maybe try using a blow dryer on it for a little bit **or just do this in the first place**

Dropped


Erm, maybe because you dropped it.. just guessing. Anyway cellphones as other hi-tech appliances are very very touchy on the subject of handling. You can drop your phone from the 3rd floor and and still be able to use it and you can drop it 50cm and it'll be broken beyond repair. In your case something might have burned out or a connection severed in either case your best bet is repair if you have insurance (drops aren't covered though) or buy a new one. P.S. You can also try dropping it again if there is nothing to lose...
