N80 white screen problem 95% chance it is a cracked ribbon cable easily replaced just a little time consuming.
if your screen comes n goes for a while before goes completly then ribbon for sure

cables avalible from ebay for instruction video just google it

if not take it to the nearest service centre.

hope this helps

You need to reboot your phone

Posted on Mar 24, 2008

However I m pretty sure that my LCD still in working condition and ask if it is possible for them to just replace ribbon without LCD and refuse to do that. Then as usual they charge me RM25 and said this charge will be deducted against the labour charge if I fix my phone within 3 months time.

I had went to Low Yat and most of them quoted me RM85 and above.

I had downloaded some repair manual and video guide, bought myself:

1.)Flexi Ribbon Cable - RM40
2.)T6 Screw Driver (phone screw driver) - RM10

Spent about 1 hour plus fixing on myself and now my screen back to normal, since 17th Oct till today my phone had been working like normal, quite happy with the outcome.

I need to clarify something here, my friend is using Samsung now and she does has the slide out white screen problem. I understand that slide and flip phones got higher risk than bar phone as we slide and the cable will start moving and rubbing on the board. Not really Nokia have this problem.

So I learned that phone with flip and slide might face this problem and if we face it on over-warranty unit, quote it with Nokia Care, if they had over-quoted you I guess you can have some adventure if you go for budget. Google the repair manual and Youtube the video guide.

My phone is already white N80

White screen are symptoms for Contact retailer. try to call 112 (emergency call) if its working, meaning it's LCD problem. If 112 working try to clean the terminal of LCD. IF this doesn't work consider replacing it.

Display problem in Nokia N80

It's a problem with the wiring that connects the upper part of the phone to its lower part when you slide it up. The wiring apparently gets damaged easily and you need to have it replaced, the wiring only, not the phone. This has also happened to me and I sent my phone to a certified Nokia Service Center. They replaced the faulty wiring but since my phone was still under warranty, they did not charge me anything. Hope your phone is still under warranty. Good luck.
