    Does the white screen have any details? Have you recently added any 3rd party apps?

First, remove the battery from your Blackberry and put it back in a minute later. This will reboot your phone and probably fix you problem.
if it doesnt fix your problem. you have options, one would be to reload the software onto your blackerry with the desktop manager and that would be a fresh install of the software and almost surely take care of the problem.
usually this type of issue is caused during an update or some type of software change. but you can always fix it with a reinstall.
Go to Blackberry.com and you will be able to download desktop manager and you device software.

Warning: if you blackberry is unlocked, reinstalling the software will relock it and you will have to have it unlocked again, unless it was unlocked with multiloader mfi

Thats strange. Usually after the hour glass it either turns on or doesn't and shuts off or just gives you an Error message after wards. In any case the 1st action is to reflash the phone to eliminate the software as being at fault. When the phone gets the white acreen, plug it into your computer and run blackberry desktop. Does it recognize the phone? Can you then get a backup of your phone? If so then do that and then proceed with Updating the software by selecting App Loader on the Blackberry Desktop (4.7 OR HIGHER). Please write me if you needed further instructions. Thank you

My bb screen is all white and I cannot turn it off as well. Please help


Hello

First of all what you need to do is to perform a reset on your BB by hitting ALT+RIGHT SHIFT+DEL your blackberry will reset itself. It will go black for about 2 to 4 seconds then you will see the famous blackberry hourglass. Be patient and in about 2 to 5 minutes your blackberry will reset.
ALT+RIGHT SHIFT+DEL can be used for continuous hourglass issues, JVM Error 200 "White Screen" to name a few.

If that does not work then you should perform a battery pull by just pulling out the battery out of the phone while it is on this is also a reset option.

Go to your service providers website, download the software from there, and then install it on your pc. Once done, delete the vendor.alx(xml file) file, open Desktop Manager (DM), connect the BlackBerry, and follow instructions

BlackBerry Curve 8520 signal swing


#1 Your BlackBerry does not have sufficient Power
Check the battery charge level as shown by the battery icon on the top left of the home screen. No Power - Battery Charge Indicator does not show a charge or is very weak. The battery icon may be red. Charge the battery.
#2 You are Out of Network coverage area
Check the Signal Strength Indicator on the home screen. (1 to 5 bars, as shown below, indicating signal strength). If there is no signal, you may be out of range of the network.
If you are sure you are in range of the network, but show no signal strength, press Alt-Right Shift-Del at the same time. This will cause the BlackBerry to reacquire a network connection.
The process for this procedure is:
  • Press Alt-Right Shift-Del (The Del key is also the Backspace key.)
  • The screen will go blank, and an hourglass will appear. Wait for the hourglass to go away.
  • The startup screen will appear. Wait for it to go away.
  • A screen that says Verifying Security Software will appear. Wait for it to go away.
  • Check the Radio Tower icon.
If you are in Coverage Area of your Service Provider, You will get the network.
#3 Your Data plan is switched Off.

The screen whites out n only way to get it back is take battery out n let it start back up


Hi there

Whenever your screen goes white again just hit the ALT+RIGHT SHIFT+DEL your blackberry will reset itself. It will go black for about 2 to 4 seconds then you will see the famous blackberry hourglass. Be patient and in about 2 to 5 minutes your blackberry will reset.

Try freeing up some space on your blackberry by deleting some unecessary files and do not run too many applications at once.

Hi , i bought a curve 8520 3 weeks ago and it has been brill ,however last night the screen went white wiv the hourglass..i hav took the battery out for several hrs..and then replaced it...and my phone...


Hi,
The BlackBerry has the feature on auto-start. When you insert the Battery, the device will automatically boot-up. It'll be showing an hour glass while loading the settings. But if it is longing for more than 10 minutes, there might be some error in the OS. It's better to contact a near-by authorised Service Center.

Regards
