Actually, it sounds like your son may have damaged the ribbon cable that connects to the flip piece of your phone. Its a longshot, but its happened to me (daughter)

Hi I have a nokia 6280 that ny son had be using now i got a unlock code etc from Vodafone the other day so i could use it with my simm card as its an optus one, everything is working ok until i want to add...

Hi! Try to format your phone. Go to Menu- Settings - Restore factory settings- Restore all. If your asked for a code try 12345 or 00000 (if this does not work ask your son, maybe he changed that code). If the phone still does not work after this, it may have a problem with the software and need reimplementation, so you need to go to a service to do this.

Found this on macfixit website, might be helpful:-

If the iPhone is inoperable, try clearing freezes by pressing the "home" button for about 10 seconds. If this doesnt work, try turning it off and back on by pressing and holding the sleep/wake button until the red slider appears. To fully reset the device, press both of these buttons together for about 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears.

Lastly, try restoring the iphone which will remove all personal data and clear any settings you may have applied which might be conflicting with the new software update. To do this, connect it to your computer and launch iTunes. Then select the phone and in the "Summary" tab select the "Restore" option. If you have not backed up your phone, be sure to select the option to do that, otherwise this option is not needed. After the restore has completed, you will need to activate the phone with iTunes (the phone should instruct you to do this), and then restore the phone's data and settings from your most recent backup.

To dark

Hmm.. Your cellphone Leds could be broken.. :/
Try pressing the following keystrokes (and joystick for left/rigth):

Right, *, Left, Left, *, Left, *.

A new menu should be displayed on your screen.
Not sure of the english descriptions of these menus, I'll just tell you to enter the third menu item. (or press 3)
This is the test-menu for your cellphone. I certainly had much fun messing thru this menu, but for now try enter '1' for running a maindisplay-test. Your screen should cycle thru a colorful test, mainly displaying red, green and blue colors :)
second try the 2nd menu item, which test the lights/LEDs.
If this doesnt make your cellphone flash, on and off, with a 'Ok'-message, the LEDs may be out :/

Please reply if you tried this! :)
