Samsung r610 cell phone display problem

I own a samsung r610 cell phone. Just the other day the display started acting wierd. The screen (with background picture) is blue adn there is a white bar across the bottom where the ''favourites/contacts'' are. Most times if I go to my mail, it gets scrambled and I can't see anything at all except for a bunch of horizontal wavy lines.
is it done?

We had the same problem and found that if you press the 8 or 9 button while inserting the battery and then press the same key while turn the phone on and finally taking the battery out one more time. You should be able to turn the phone back on w/o any problems. Hope that made sense

I had the same corner squares/scrambled display problem in a set just over a year old (of course). It became completely unusuable and I was not looking forward to a repair bill of hundreds of dollars. After reading these posts, I opened the back of the set and took out the board with the connections on it. (FYI, the cable connections were all hot glued down, but this did not present a problem - a little wiggling and they came free. I also took lots of digital pictures to make sure I reconnected it correctly.) This board had the four capacitors (C280, etc) mentioned in this section. Since I have not had any experience with soldering on electronic boards, I found a friend of a friend who was a techie and he agreed to look at the board. He replaced the 4 mentioned capacitors - although he said they seemed to be fine. He did, however, also notice that capacitor C336 in the same area of the board was bulging so he replaced it. SUCCESS. The TV is again working fine.

So if you are reasonably handy with a screwdriver, taking out the board is easy and makes transportation a lot easier than taking the TV to someone. The cost of replacing a few capacitors on a board was minor, and in fact, if I hadn't found someone with electronic soldering experience, I would have given it a try myself. You may, however, want to check for bulging capacitors (indicating a problem) rather than just replacing the ones mentioned.

Go into your phone's system settings (usually in tools and phone settings, something like that) NOT the service menu again, just the normal one that anybody can get to.

Look for a menu option that says "Standalone Mode." When you find it, turn that feature on, then turn it back off again. Hope that works, it did for me. Good luck!

What you are sseing is a convergence problem within the light engine of the set. This is not repairable in teh field other than replacing the light engine part. Since this unit is less than one year old, it should be covered under warranty. From the looks of it, one of the LCD panels has shifted internally. Call for warranty service and indicate that the light engine has a problem. With luck, the service company will show up with the part in hand. Replacement should not take more than an hour or so.

Help me please with my phone!!!

Hi Ya! The problem could be with the bus that connects the key pad with the screen area. The way you open and use and the frequency of open-and-shut ruins the main contact data bus cable and evena single break can cause such phones to act the way you are describing. Take it to the Local Samsung Service Centre and get the Data Bus checked for damages and or else get the base s/w reloaded (Virus). Keep your phones BlueTooth OFF while you are moving in public, as viruses can be uploaded without YOU even noticing! Back up data and get the phone formatted. This should HELP solve!
