Question about Sony Ericsson Z525a Cellular Phone

1 Answer

White screen I turn on my phone and a white screen shows up (no pictures, just a white screen that covers the whole screen) I hear it when it starts up and I can call people only if I remember what I am typing in. I've have already tried turning it off and taking the battery out and putting it back in (heck I bought a new battery to see if it would help), I've took the battery out and let it sit out for a day with no battery or charger, I've done the same thing but left it charging with the battery in didn't help at all though. It would be very helpful if you could take only about 15 minutes of your time so you can tell me your suggest a solution to my problem. thank you very much FixYa Expert ;-)

Re: white screen

Unfortunately this seems to be a problem that happens to all sony ericsson z525a phones before too long. (And it seems sometimes it happens on the anniversary of the expiration of any and all warranties)

I do have some codes for running service tests on the sony z525 but with a blank screen they wont do you much good. anyway..

I'll post them here and let you know that when I tried them on my phone (when the screen worked) they did exactly what they were supposed to. You can test the screen...but only if the screen is working.

Unfortunately none of these codes will work if you have a phone with a blank screen...


Nokia anyone?

To check the IMEI# = * # 06 #
Secret Service Menu= > * < < * < * (< is left, and > is right)
To reach last dialed numbers= 0 then #
Info about Simlock= < * * < (use with caution)

again...none of these seemed to fix the problem of the blank screen...but if you should get another z525a you can use these commands to do what they're listed to do....until the screen goes blank....
Now, to retrieve your numbers you would need to follow these key strokes...

center, toggle down (1 time), center, toggle up (2 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center (3 times)

then wait for quite some takes a while to copy all of the contacts...I would say anywhere from 5 to 10 mins...

this should work to save your contacts.

To save your pictures (and any other data you might want to retrieve) you could buy Sony's data cable2.gif for the z525a. I haven't tried this but it should work since that is what the cable is for.

Its called a DCU-60 USB data cable, and is listed as being compatible with the z525a.

You could also try getting a T6 Torx bit screwdriver and taking it appart to replace the flex cable that runs to the screen...but I would suggest getting all the data off the phone first.

White display


The reason your phone is showing white display is because the flex of the phone is faulty.

  1. get the appropriate screwdriver (Torx 6 screwdriver),
  2. First remove the battery cover & battery. Remove the two screws you see.
  3. Run your fingernail around the join of the front cover and then remove the front cover.
  4. Now remove the four screws you can see.
  5. The top part of the phone (PCB and LCD screen) can now be removed from the middle chassis,
  6. A metal frame surrounds the LCD screen. It's held on with clips around the edge of the PCB. Unclip and remove.
  7. You can now remove the LCD screen. It's attached by a ribbon which connects like a plug and socket. Simply lift it upwards and it'll unplug.
  8. The ribbon which connects the screen to the panel you just removed is what needs replacement, it is attached to the screen so you have to replace the screen, if there is a way you can replace only the ribbon, that would do just fine,
  9. You can now replace the LCD.
  10. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
Take care

Nokia n70 white screen

If you can hear the Nokia tone when the phone is turned on or rings and can receive call, check it here. If not, you have a white screen hang problem. You need to consult a qualified technician to do the indicated solution as shown on the picture below.

Partially white screen, now whole screen is white

The mega-pixles in your phone are bad. You can't fix this problem. Take it up with your network. Your services will cover this problem.

Blank Screen

1. Put your iphone in the dock, with the USB cable disconnected from your computer.

2. Make sure the phone is off (The only way I got the phone to turn off is to hold the power button + the home button for like 15 seconds)

3. Once you know the phone is off, press and hold the HOME button then plug in the USB cable to your computer, keep holding the HOME button the whole time.

4. Next it should put a Yellow Triangle on your iphone and it should say "connect to itunes".

5. Now restore your phone, and you should be GOOD TO GO!

i had the same issue when my phone got slightly wet. try taking everything apart (sim card, battery, back). let them dry out for a little bit then after like a day or two put the phone back together. turn it on it will be a white screen for a little bit but give it like 2 or 3 mins and if should come back. I did this for my phone cuz i really needed the pictures off it and it worked! hopefully if will work for you too. GOOD LUCK!
