Never try to update or flash any device you don't trust to work for 100% correct. You could try to reset it to factory settings. For flashing or updating you must be sure the own software runs stable, because this software is needed to put the data where it should be.

White screen how do i retrieve the contacts from it connected to pc with usb cord what software or such is needed?


Hello,

this is not possible because the screen is blind. When you connect the phone to PC, you need to accept/press something on the phone to connect to the PC. Now the screen is white, you can't see what button you are to press on the phone.

I would suggest you replace the screen. Also, if your phone uses sim card, you can remove it from your phone and insert it into another phone. You might be lucky to find your contacts on the Sim.

Now to fix the problem, read further:

When a phone screen is blank or has a white screen, etc, there are three things that could be the cause;


1. Bad/defective screen and the solution is screen replacement. (In your case, your screen might be failing).
2. Software/Virus problem and solution is to flash the phone
3. Flex problem and solution is to change the flex. In some cases the flex might have shifted or not in it's right position, in this case, just fix the flex back properly and all will be well.


Bad/defective screen:


If your phone is having a white screen, first thing to do is dismantle the phone carefully, check if the screen is properly fixed to the phone board, also check if screen flex is intact. Once you've confirmed that all these are okay and screen is not still coming up, then it means your screen is bad. You can go ahead and replace the screen.


Make sure you confirm the screen is bad before you do any replacement.


Software/Virus:


Sometimes software/virus problem on phones are mistaken to screen problem. When a screen is white or blank, sometimes it's a virus problem. To further confirm, turn on the phone, wait for about 2 minutes when you know the phone must have booted fully, then use another phone to call the phone with white or blank screen. If the phone rings, it means it's not a virus problem, but if it doesn't ring, it means it's a software/virus problem.


If you discover your phone has a virus problem, you will have to flash the phone for it to display again,


Flex problem


When your phone screen is blank, white, has horizontal/vertical lines, turn images up-side-down, etc, be calm, there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out, that's why your screen is acting like any of the mentioned problem.


This is usually common with flip and slide phones. The flex worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone. Samsung and Motorola phones mostly have this kind of problems.


Replacing the flex is the only solution to this problem. If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be replaced.

Conclusion

Disassemble your phone and check the screen part in order to verify from the above which is actually the cause of the problem.

Please let me know if you need anymore assistance.

Regards.

My phone turns on , shows the nokia screen , then the screen goes white and then its turns off. please help


Hi, most problems with mobile phones when it turns white and goes off, is usually a problem with "VIRUS"on your mobile phone.

Causes are when your using mobile internet and you decide to do some downloads on your mobile, or can be through transferring DATA from a phone to another phone, transferring from PC to phone with out you noticing that you have downloaded VIRUS with applications without scanning for VIRUS before uploading it on your mobile phone.

So in this process, VIRUS then affects the cell phones memory and cell phones starts malfunctioning by switching off when you try to put it on,or make calls..

To rectify and solve this problem to be able to restore back the lost memory of then mobile phone, you will need to flash the cell phone.

Flashing the phone will restore back the phone to it normal state.

You can use this link to see how to flash your phone

Flashing a cell phone will erase carrier data from the memory. Cellular companies can usually do this for a fee. Online buyer sites sell the software kit that will flash a cell phone from home computers.

To flash a phone you will need to rewrite the PRL file by connecting your phone to a computer with the needed equipment. Your best bet is to take your phone to a dealer that flashes phones on a regular basis. For more information

The LCD og my phone sony ericson w550i turning to white


When it shows white, can you recieve or make calls? If you can recieve or make calls, that means the fault is from the screen but if you cannot recieve or make call, it means its a software problem (virus).

For screen fault, the screen needs to be replaced.

But for software problem, you need to take the phone to a technician. The technician will use computer to flash the phone for you.

Take care
