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 ;-)

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...

THANKS SONY

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 time...it 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 cablewhite screen - 2.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.

Is there a simple reason why the screen on my samsung mobile has gone blank.the phone can still turn on and off and keys still make sound when you press them as they normally do but nothing on the screen...


Hi,

The problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is not displaying any picture.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.


Take care.

I have an Acer aspire 5534 that is less then a year old. I noticed that the screen started to have red lines and the coloring was off today so I restarted it. It then had a white screen so I turned it off...


Hi
The problem with your PC Notebook has to do with the screen.Since you can hear the sound then your screen might be damaged maybe mistakenly.
You just have to get to the right store and replace the screen so your notebook can work perfectly.
GOODLUCK

GE 27956 only produces white screen in photo frame.


I followed these steps that were listed, but it didn't work. Then I increased the time in step to an hour, and it worked

I called GE support. I was told
1. unplug power from base
2. unplug phone connection from base
3. remove cover and battery from handset
4. wait 10 minutes
5. put battery back, reattach phone connection and power

It solved the problem.

I have the White Screen of Death


Try pressing the reset button underneath the antenna and if this doesn't help, then you'll need to have the LCD display replaced.

I think its time for sony to face a claas action, they do not supply parts in less than 7 years, and the unit should not have been sold so $high, they should buy them back, that is the best solution

Do you have the same problem when you turn on the SP without a game in it?
Try turning on the system without a game inserted, and if it shows the Gameboy logo, the system is fine, and the game might be bad. If there is only a white screen, then the screen might have gone bad. Post results here when done. :)
