    Thanks Modern_epic, I'll let you know tomorrow if I managed ton keep my hands steady enmough, although with a son like mine my hands shake quite a bit, my head argus with my hands you see ! hands want to try his neck to see if they would fit SNUG round it, my head tells them not to be silly, that would certainly strangle the boy . Let you know tomorrow either way lol....

The white screen means that the lead linking the screen to the phone is lose, there are 2 or 3 leads, one lights the screen up, the other transfers data to be shown (like your menu etc), the one which lights the screen up is obviously ok but the data one, which is the longer of the two, had obviously come lose, it is possible to fix yourself if you search the internet to find how to take the case apart, its not too hard really, then if you have steady enough hands reconnect the lead, its quite delicate so be careful.
this link shows you how to take the phone apart. hope this helps

Sony Ericsson W580i screen went blank


Ok, my phone had the same problem. I took the face plate off and the screen out and there's actually a little connector that connects to a board behind the screen(can come unplugged for replacement). I fiddled around a little with it and it worked fine. about a week or 2 later it happened again. I tried fixing it again and it would just flash white>black>lines>white, repeat. I know my phone's taken a bit of abuse, dropped down a road, soaked in rain, but it always worked after. These phone screens aren't meant to take abuse. Problem; the phone screen died. Solution; get a new screen.

Krzr wont turn on.keypad flashing??


Either your battery is completly dead - and thats easy to replace for under $40 - otherwise it may be your flex cable - but the k1 is built stronger than the razr ever was - did you drop water on it? check if the white sticker under the battery is still white and not pink

Wont turn on


you are experiencing sony's white screen of death, its commonon SE models - its a problem in their software / firmware. You will need to have it flashed by a professional service center, as it is a DB2020 and would require about an hour of work. If it's under warranty bring it to the original store for an exchange or free repair
