What makes my phone screen go black and go back to lock screen every time I tried to do anything such as message, make a call, or get online?

About a week ago my son was playing games on my phone like he usually does but this time the next day my phone started acting funny while im in the middle of the text or online my screen goes black then it automatically goes back to the lock screen.

Sounds like a virus type of thing. If your son downloaded a game you need to uninstall that game and then you need to run a virus type scan to remove any thing that is left behind from that game.

Alright, got the solution. All you  neeed to do is use a small pin to press and hold the RESET  button (it's on the side) for about 5-10 seconds. Then press the END button to turn it on, and it should work.

SOURCE: broken screen and text messages

I broke my screen too and this is what i did to read them:

my friend has the same menu as me (both verizon users) and so held his phone in one hand and my broken on in the other. then what ever i did on his phone i did with my phone.

I basically went into my inbox (blindly basically) and individually forwarded the messages to his phone...after i read them, i replied in the same manner using my phone.

Its kind of alot of work, its worth it and it gets the job done...I could read my texts!

Hope this works

SOURCE: Samsung T239 turning itself off

master reset is best. take the battery out. look for a little white sticker onside the phone. if the stick is white call t-mobile. if the stick is not white you will need to replace the device

IPhone 4 black screen but vibrates when plugged in?

You can try waiting for the battery to drain then connecting it to a computer that has iTunes installed on it. This should make it start back up with hopefully the apple logo visible. If it is still not working, your screen itself may have gone out.

My motorola droid screen went completely black. i wasn't using it at the time. i still hear that i'm getting messages and i can receive incoming calls but i can't see anything on the screen.

try taking the battery completely out and putting it back in, it's called a "Hard Shutdown" restart the device and it should be back to normal operation, if not, see your local Verizon Wireless store.

Multiple Blackberry problems on the same phone! Please help!

I think the easiest way to resolve as many of these issues is by resetting your blackberry.

Hold down ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys - I'm not 100% sure this works on your model but it is soft reset.

Go into Options, then select Security Options, then select General Settings, then activate the BlackBerry menu and select the option to wipe the device - Will reset all your personalised settings to default

there a problem with your phone memory, try adding an external card, if it has one. if you do have an external memory, try to remove it, and power-up your phone. if the problem persist it needs servicing.

Keypad motorola V3x

When the keypad locks up I have found that removing the battery and then replacing it allows keys to reactivate. My phone locked because of a corrupted/modified 'Theme' I tried to use. Once I unlocked the keyboard by the above method I was able to delete the offending theme and I seem to be back in business. Best of luck!
