Phone wont boot.

Hi, the problem you are having is with the data cable that attatches the screen to the circuit board, when the screen just shows white its telling us their is something wrong with the connection to the screen, now this could be down to liquid damage, or the circuit board getting warped due to phone been sat on etc, or it could be that its been knocked and damaged the fine ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board, chances are it needs replacing, but try taking the battery out then give the phone a couple of hits in the palm of your other hand then replace the battery and it might if your lucky come back on, if it dont then it needs the screen data ribbon replacing or worse case the screen itself needs replacing, but you would need to make sure the repair cost is worth the price of the fone, or cut your losses and upgrade to another fone

Can a technician in the house tell me the steps to follow, i want to repair my blank nokia screen

Do you have a white, blue screen or no display at all?

If you are able to turn on your phone but it remains blank, you can format it.
How ever this will erase all your phone memory data as your phone is restored to factory settings.
Your memory card and SIM card data will not be affected how ever.
To format your phone, use the following steps.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} 1. Make sure you have at least 3/4 charge of battery power left.

2. Switch-off your phone.

3. Press and hold these 3 keys; Green dial key, * (star key) and no. 3 key and then press the power on/off to switch on the phone.

Remember, do not let go all of the keys, hold until you see a formatting word screen show!

4. After a few minutes when the full phone formatting completed, your phone will be back to original system and factory settings.

Blank or White screen on new Motorola Krzr k1 cell 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, or 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.

Blank white screen

Hey guys - sony ericsson get the white screen of death on a regular basis - it's a flaw in their programming -sim card changes, unpluging the usb too fast, or even standard charging can cause it.

We can reflash your phone to the latest firmware and it should solve the problem - cost is anbout $35+ shipping

White screen

Unfortunately this seems to be a problem that happens to all sony ericsson z525a phones before too long. (And it seems sometimes it happens on the anniversary of the expiration of any and all warranties)

I do have some codes for running service tests on the sony z525 but with a blank screen they wont do you much good. anyway..

I'll post them here and let you know that when I tried them on my phone (when the screen worked) they did exactly what they were supposed to. You can test the screen...but only if the screen is working.

Unfortunately none of these codes will work if you have a phone with a blank screen...


Nokia anyone?

To check the IMEI# = * # 06 #
Secret Service Menu= > * < < * < * (< is left, and > is right)
To reach last dialed numbers= 0 then #
Info about Simlock= < * * < (use with caution)

again...none of these seemed to fix the problem of the blank screen...but if you should get another z525a you can use these commands to do what they're listed to do....until the screen goes blank....
Now, to retrieve your numbers you would need to follow these key strokes...

center, toggle down (1 time), center, toggle up (2 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center (3 times)

then wait for quite some takes a while to copy all of the contacts...I would say anywhere from 5 to 10 mins...

this should work to save your contacts.

To save your pictures (and any other data you might want to retrieve) you could buy Sony's data cable2.gif for the z525a. I haven't tried this but it should work since that is what the cable is for.

Its called a DCU-60 USB data cable, and is listed as being compatible with the z525a.

You could also try getting a T6 Torx bit screwdriver and taking it appart to replace the flex cable that runs to the screen...but I would suggest getting all the data off the phone first.
