Flashing Display on Samsung i500

My cell phone is flashing.  Tried to reset sevearl times.  Tried removing the battery, and replacing.  Tried turning off an restarting.  When I hold down the reset pin (from the stylus,) it stops flashing.
Is there a secret code to reset, or is the phone just dying??

Re: Flashing Display on Samsung i500

I have had the same problem... twice.  First time I held down some keys just trying desperately to get it to come back to life.  Well I hit the right combination for a hard reset.  So I lost all my data.
Second time I took my phone into the Sprint Store across from Sprint HQ in KC.  The only thing they knew to do was a hard reset. I'm suspicious since I was having trouble removing my battery the second time, that my battery's position may have caused some type of short.  Still searching. KC Ron

My bb pearl it`s flashing 3 times stop then 2 times i can`t start my bb i can`t upload anything my computer dosn`t see my phone.what can be done to fix my bb?

Perform a hard reset on the BlackBerry smartphone. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.
If the display is still not working, verify that the battery is charged by trying it in a different BlackBerry smartphone.
If the battery is working, download the latest BlackBerry Device Software and install it using the application loader tool in BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

Palm centro wont boot

Do a reset. You will lose all items on you device.
Take battery out. Put it in and hold the power button on till you see the palm logo the second time. Release when you see the 2nd logo. It will prompt you for pressing up to delete and reset. Press Up. It will take some time to reset and reformat but please wait. 
After that your phone should come to the setup screen. I would hotsync after you setup to get your contacts  back.

Hello, have a Palm 755p Treo screen just keeps flashing

There are multiple reasons for the phone to go into an endless loop.

Fix #1 - Soft Reset - Take out the battery. On the back of your phone, pop the cover off, remove battery, place battery back in and it will show each screen once and power on normally.

Fix #2 - Hard Reset - To do a hard reset, hold the power button while you replace the battery and then release it when the Palm logo appears.

Fix #3 - Hammer

I have a Sony Ericsson k810i phone since April 2008.Today I connected my cell phone with my pc via usb connection.My phone was turn on and I had choose the "operate as a cell phone" application on the...

First thing is never remove the cable without stopping the USB connection from system tray. Now, as your phone has gone kaput, you will have to re flash the firmware. Checkout some SE forums like,se-nse. Use a memory card reader to copy the contents of your m2 and don't keep it inserted in the phone while flashing.

If your phone is still under warranty, i suggest you take it to the service center.

My samsung SCH-i730 is stuck on the white loading screen

You may have to do a major reset on it. First remove and replace the battery and turn it on again. If that doesn't fix it, there is a tiny reset button on the bottom near the connector. You will need to push it in with a small point such as a paper clip wire.
