My phone screen won't come on, it will ring if I call it, but the screen stays dark so I can't answer it... I have tried the small button on the top and the round button below the screen.

Try these resets:

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

More resets:
Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

The digital answering machine on my GE29893 telephone does not work.


It seems that your messages are full. This will happen if you dont delete all messages. Try that first. Then try the answer button. Sometimes we turn it on but forget to actually have it answer calls. Make sure your rings are set to 4 rings then you will know if it will answer after 4 rings. If it still won't answer after 4 rings then junk it. They are so cheap to buy a new one. They are not worth fixing these days. it is sad i know.
Good Luck

LG KM900 Screen goes black when it rings and can not answer calls. No buttons wil respond and it just locks up whilst the incoming ringing happens. Answer mode is also missing from the "Common Settings".


If you have a screen protector on, the proximity sensor is covered by the screen protector. The sensor is locate on top left of the screen next to the inner camera. Cut of the piece of screen protector and it should solve the problem.

Flip up screen won,t illuminate. dark


if the screen needs to be wired to the dash light switch it will not change unless the lights are on, if the wire is disconnected it is possible to bypass it making the screen stay bright.
although it would seem more likely that the brightness could be adjusted on the unit settings or by a button on the unit itself

Battery on my HTC s710 lasts for 3-4 hours


if you momentarily push the "start" button, that should put the phone into hybernation. Which means the screen will go dark and quit using power. If the phone rings it will automatically wake up. If you want to use it just hit the start button again.

There are also some settings in the "settings" menu that determine when and for how long the screen stays illuminated when not in use.

We tried to video the kids and the screen is too dark to see anything. Have we broken anything?


Try removing batteries for two minutes, this will reset the camera settings.

If the video stays dark all the time, and the backlight does not come on, then the small board that supplies power to LCD backlight lamp is faulty, or a contact to the lamp is broken.

You can get an online quote on repair here: Repair. Call also the manufacturer ringing the number on user manual.

Call Waiting


When 2-nd call is ringing (you can hear ringing in the hand set while talking) word "Recall" appears in display. Press the button below the word "Recall" (top left side, dark grey button) and then press number "2". You will get connected with second caller while the first is put on hold. When finished with second caller, press again word "Recall" and then number "1" and you get connected back to first caller.
