Question about Sanyo SCP-7050 Cellular Phone
On my Sanyo SCP-7050, the inside screen reads backwards like a mirror image. The outside screen has black and white bars that look like a barcode. It doesn't do it all the time, just sometimes. As far as I know, it has not gotten wet or had any extreme abuse. I've only had the phone for 3 months. Any suggestions?
I had the same problem with my phone, had it fixed once under warranty a few months later had the same problem. They told me it would cost a fortune to fix, I was about ready to give up until i examined the phone a bit further, it seemed as though the contacts on the battery were somewhat worn, I simply packed some paper between the battery case and the top of the battery, seemed to fix the problem for now.

I had the same problem after a power surge. The phone didn't right itself until I literally lobbed it against a wall lightly. It immediately started operating normally. Wow.

I have/had the same problem. Out of no where the screen look funky as if it had gotten wet or something, even though it hadn't. When I took the battery out and put it back it if fixed it temporarly, but then it started happening faster and with a total white screen where I couldn't do anything.
I think the battery contacts are at fault here, there appears to be nothing actually wrong with the screen itself. I cut a small piece of a plastic twisty tie and crammed it between the case and the top of the battery. Seems to have fixed it, I'll post back if I start having problems again.

I have a similar problem my screen goes crazy often. It goes white, sideways barcode, flying collors and choppy display like a frozedn computer the screen splits down the middle when problems ocur. I did not abuse my phone at all. As a matter of fact i only had the phone 4 hours before it broke.

Your phone should have a one year warranty from sanyo. Contact them

Glad to know I'm not the only one. Mine did the same thing 53 weeks after I bought it. It showed reverse/misaligned images with a green hue on the main screen and the barcode like image on the outside screen itermittantly, and has since gone to a blank white. I'm going to contact Sprint today, it's worth a try.
