White screen 8530

Have you tried a reset or a reboot? Try these steps:

1. Power off the cell phone by holding down the power button for at least 5 seconds. The screen should turn black. Now, let go of the button and press it again until the screen lights up again.

2. If the screen is still white while holding down the power button, open up the back of the cell phone and remove the battery. Wait for 30 seconds before putting the battery back in, to allow the software to reset itself. Put the battery back in and press the power button until the screen lights up again.

3. If you removed the battery and you still have a white screen, you may have a software issue. Go to a local cell phone repair company and have it replaced or fixed.

Factory Reset for Centro and Treo 755p

If you've set a password on your smartphone, any hard reset will automatically become a Factory Reset. With this method, you'll enter a password and then perform a hard reset.

1.On your smartphone, launch the Security application.
2.If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your smartphone. Press Applications to exit the Security application.
3.Now that a system password is established, we'll perform a hard reset to complete the factory reset. With the device face down, remove the battery door. Removing the stylus may make it easier to remove the battery for the next step.
4.Remove the battery. Then put the battery back in.
5.When the Palm logo appears, press and hold Power/End until the black status bar at the bottom of the screen fills and disappears, and then release Power/End.

6.If you performed this reset correctly, you should see a white screen with black text saying "reformatting in progress" (any other activity - such as the Palm OS logo and then the Applications launcher appearing - means the reset was performed incorrectly; try again). Your smartphone will appear to reset again after the "reformatting in progress" screen disappears.
7.When the Erase all data? prompt appears, press Up to confirm the Factory reset.
8.When the language selection screen appears, select the same language you selected for your desktop software. The Factory reset is now complete.

DCS T70 LCD does work properly .I mean to say if i try to use one function another function gets started instead of desired function


Based on the information you've provided, it seems that the touch screen panel is not aligned. You can try Calibrating the touch screen to resolve the issue.
Calibration option is in the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera. Calibration option enables you to perform calibration when the touch panel buttons do not react at the appropriate points where you touch. You can use the paint pen, touch the X mark displayed on the screen. The X mark moves on the screen. Once the calibration option is finished successfully, the touch screen should work.
The Calibration option can be done only if the Menu is accessible.
You can also perform a power reset before performing the Calibration.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using Fixya.

When I boot up all I get is a white screen

With an extensive use of the notebook,
some times notebook would store some static charges which
indeed will stop the notebook from powering up or charging
the battery. The procedure to remove this static charges from
the notebook is known as power drain. Performing a power
drain procedure will not effect any personal data or delete
any pictures from the hard drive on your notebook.
I recommend you use Power Drain procedure by following these

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

Please remove the Battery from the Battery bay and disconnect the AC Adaptor from the Notebook. Then, clean the metal contact in the Battery Bay and leave the Battery removed for half an hour. Next, connect the AC Adaptor to the Notebook and the power cable to a functional wall outlet and try to turn ON the Notebook. If the power LED on the Notebook doesn't glow then again disconnect the AC Adaptor and try removing and reinserting the RAM module. If the issue persists even after performing all the above steps then service will be required.

However, if the Notebook turns on after performing the above mentioned steps but the Battery is not detected then perform C: Drive Restore using the VAIO Recovery Center.

As per the specification published online, the Computer model VGN-N250E is preinstalled with the VAIO Recovery Center in the hidden partition of the Computer. You may use it to perform C: Drive Restore to restore the Computer to the original factory settings. Please make sure that the new Battery is installed in the Computer while performing the Complete System Restore.

Performing a C: Drive Recovery will erase all the data present in the C: Drive only and will reinstall the pre-installed Operating System, Applications and the original Drivers supplied with the Computer.

Please restart the Computer and keep on tapping the F10 key to access the VAIO Recovery Center. Next press the Enter key then select the "VAIO Recovery Center" option then follow the steps given in the link mentioned below to proceed with the C: Drive Restore.

In the link given above, please click on the sublink "Restore C: Drive" to view further information on performing the C: Drive Restore.

Performing all the steps successfully should resolve the issue.

N73 hangs while starting up

The method of performing a hard-format, i.e resetting it completely to factory defaults and removing all data, is as follows:
  1. Switch off the phone.
  2. Hold down the following three buttons: Green (call answer) button, * button, and '3' button
  3. While holding these buttons, press the power button and switch on the phone
  4. When the message 'Formatting' appears on the screen, release all of the buttons
Note that you shouldn't switch the phone off or remove the battery when performing either of these operations, and it's advised that the handset has a reasonable amount of battery charge before performing a format/reset.
