Sony Ericsson w580i. Dropped it screen blank and calls dont work

I have a Sony Ericsson W580i phone. I dropped it once about half a meter high. The screen wont show anything but a blank white screen and i cannot recieve or make calls. The screen is not cracked or anything. I'm just wondering if the phone will ever work again, or if somethings loose or if something has to be replaced. Help is appreciated!

I had this same phone and the same thing happened to me. I kept shutting it off and on - also taking the battery in and out. I eventually got the screen to light up but it would only last a few seconds. Sorry to say but you will most likely need a new phone. I had to replace mine.

Probably not easy or cheap. However, my wife broke the flip on her w580i and e-mailed Sony Ericsson and they sent her a new one free. Try e-mailing them or calling them if their site has a number -- it couldn't hurt.

Sony Ericsson W580i screen went blank


Ok, my phone had the same problem. I took the face plate off and the screen out and there's actually a little connector that connects to a board behind the screen(can come unplugged for replacement). I fiddled around a little with it and it worked fine. about a week or 2 later it happened again. I tried fixing it again and it would just flash white>black>lines>white, repeat. I know my phone's taken a bit of abuse, dropped down a road, soaked in rain, but it always worked after. These phone screens aren't meant to take abuse. Problem; the phone screen died. Solution; get a new screen.

Sony ericsson w580i blank screen


More than likely you will need to replace the LCD screen. The backlight may have burned out making it blank or it the LCD connector may have come loose.

A new LCD screen runs about 15 dollars shipped from ebay2.gif.

The W580i LCD is very easy to replace.

Check out the following link for instructions on replacing the LCD display and links to buy the screen.
