Question about Nokia 7280

1 Answer

Nokia 7280 display powering up but no text.

The Nokia 7280 can be turned on but now doesn't show the initail Nokia greeting or the network provider/receiver strength/battery indicator/wallpaper - Just a powered up white screen.

When a button is pressed, black lines appear where the et would've been highlighted and it will still call.

Is it the display? Is it the battery? Is it more serious? Please help.
