Re: help w850i wsod

It is true, flashing white screen is caused by faulty upper keypad circuit board. The connection between this board and the flex cable must be tight , else you will get WSOD.
If your upper keypad is crack, most likely you will damage the keypad circuit board after some time.

i finally fixed my WSOD on w850i after trying flashing of firmware, gdfs restore. WSOD is definely a hardware problem

Replace the upper keypad, in mine there was a crack in one of the connectors on the bottom side of this keypad!

It is commonly known as WSOD (White Screen of Death). A DIY solution is not possible and you will have to take it to the nearest service center where they will flash your phone.

If restarting the phone several times does'nt work the phone needs to be flashed, noting is wrong with the screen seeing that there was no accident all you need to do is find a phone mechanic and have hm flash your cell phone its sure to work again

Faulty w850i

Are you sure you have flashed it correctly? I had a white screen problem and flashing fixed it. Make sure both your main and fs firmwares are the same type eg W850_R1ED001_FS_VFE_LIVE_1_RED52
and your custom pack can be any w850
