MDA phone screen is scrambled with Lines

Hi, I'm in a real jam. My MDA first did the battery thing. Ok, I know whats the problem there, but I swapped out batteries yesterday and when I turned on the MDA, the screen went scrambled with lines everywhere. The screen is completely unreadible but heres the bizzare part. I turned off the phone by holding the power, and then remembering where the location of the "yes" box on the "do you wish to shut down the MDA" screen was, and it worked. So I don't think its the touch screen. When I installed the battery, I did it a little forcefully to get the original charged battery in the phone (the original battery has bulged in the center). I took it to a repair center yesterday and they said it was a bad screen, but I don't think they are telling the whole truth (and they wanted to charge me more then the worth of the phone). I can't afford their repair bill, so I am left with no other choice then to fix it myself. I need to know if it is the screen, or maybe a connector has come loose, or is it a hopeless cause.

Marc1234: sounds like the backlight is out......possibly a software malfunction.....try goign to www.t-mobile.com/wmuprade to reinstall the software....if that doesnt work, contact htc or your service provider....you will need a replacement. if youre out of warrenty, it will be a lost cause....

Guest,: your USB port is broken, if you dont fix it yourself, you will need another phone.

I cant get my mda to turn on i hold down the power button for a while but it wont turn on i charged it for 3 days and it still wont work what should i do?


Mda Vario's don't charge when turned off, heres what you do.
cut wire off a usb lead the small end strip the red and black wires, put the red wire onto the posative connection where the battery is it tells you what side is posative and negative on the battery, use black with negative and red with posative making sure that no wires touch the other metal strips in the phone, replace battery plug usb into computer and start up the mda and wait for it to boot. once turned on leave to charge as it will charge through the wires connected to the battery, after 10 to 15 minutes plug in the actuall charger and try to remove usb wires without taking battery out. if that is not possable it is ok as the battery should have enough power to start up once it starts leave to charge and always keep some charge in the phone.

UNCOMPLETED MDA UPDATE


this is a sw boot up screen. this is what the screen will look like with no sw on the device, so you guessed it....the download was unsuccessful and corrupted the firmware.....if you tried to reinstall the sw again, and it does not work, you might need a new phone....contact t-mobile to do that.....OR, you can try to do a master reset by pressing the sw keys.

to do that, turn off the phone, and press and hold the soft keys (buttons located beneath the touch screen that have the lines on them on top of the green call button and the red end call button).....while holding these down, press the power button for 3 seconds and release the power button.....all this time you are holding those soft keys down....the phone SHOULD turn on and go to a black screen with white writing.....at this time you can relase the two buttons......press the green button and reset. if this does not work.....my friend, you need another one......good luck!

K-Jam locks itself on phone screeen


Reformat it, basically go through a hard reset and reinstall the firmware Here is how to hard-reset your MDA/Wizard using a key combo - courtesy of a smart T-Mobile tech support help desk guy who wrote a note about it as it's not in official help doc's: 1. Simultaneously hold down the Communication Manager and Voice Dial buttons and put the Soft Reset 'button' with the stylus tip - all at the same time. 2. You see a very scary looking black screen with white letters in System font reading something along the lines of ?Are You Sure? Press Send key to continue.? 3. When you push the 'Send' key, the Green pick-up the phone key process starts 4. Next you will see what made me smile like a kid - Formatting FAT partition and very briefly in matter of few seconds began normal first boot.
