Re: blank screen

Solution for Frizzyloo:
The most likely problem is that the connections between the phone and the screen have disconnected or are not connected properly. See if the screen will work if the phone is slid down or half way up etc. Try pushing down on the area around the screen and see if it works then.

Also get it to a repair person if this problem is continual. The problem will not be covered under warranty unless you get it in for under a year and it's worth replacing the connections.

Solution for Zeewon:
Try starting up the phone with out the sim and if it starts fine then your sim needs replacing. Try the same with the memory card. Also check your battery, there should be a sticker around where the contacts are and if it's red then your battery and the back of your phone have been wet. Wipe the back of the inside of the phone then replace the battery.

Good Luck to you both.

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.
