Sanyo Katana 1 - White screen

Randomly, the screen turns blank white. Nothing on it. If it rings, I cannot answer the phone or see who is calling.

Talked to Qwest, and they had no solution.

Can you help?

Yes- take the device to a Sprint store (thats who you actually talked to) and ask them to upgrade the software on your phone. This is a known issue and your firmware needs to be updated.

please rate solution. thanks.

Blackberry 9780 white screen


Hello,


When a phone screen is blank or has a white screen, etc, there are three things that could be the cause;


1. Bad/defective screen and the solution is screen replacement. (In your case, your screen might be failing).
2. Software/Virus problem and solution is to flash the phone
3. Flex problem and solution is to change the flex. In some cases the flex might have shifted or not in it's right position, in this case, just fix the flex back properly and all will be well.


Bad/defective screen:


If your phone is having a white screen, first thing to do is dismantle the phone carefully, check if the screen is properly fixed to the phone board, also check if screen flex is intact. Once you've confirmed that all these are okay and screen is not still coming up, then it means your screen is bad. You can go ahead and replace the screen.


Make sure you confirm the screen is bad before you do any replacement.


Software/Virus:


Sometimes software/virus problem on phones are mistaken to screen problem. When a screen is white or blank, sometimes it's a virus problem. To further confirm, turn on the phone, wait for about 2 minutes when you know the phone must have booted fully, then use another phone to call the phone with white or blank screen. If the phone rings, it means it's not a virus problem, but if it doesn't ring, it means it's a software/virus problem.


If you discover your phone has a virus problem, you will have to flash the phone for it to display again,


Flex problem


When your phone screen is blank, white, has horizontal/vertical lines, turn images up-side-down, etc, be calm, there is nothing wrong with your screen, 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 acting like any of the mentioned problem.


This is usually common with flip and slide phones. The flex worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone. Samsung and Motorola phones mostly have this kind of problems.


Replacing the flex is the only solution to this problem. 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 replaced.

Conclusion

Disassemble your phone and check the screen part in order to verify from the above which is actually the cause of the problem.

Please let me know if you need anymore assistance.

Good luck.

Phone goes blank


sir is it blinks with white screen only or blinks with white screen then shut down?
-if the phone can receive/send text and mms messages while the incoming and outgoing calls become shut down,i think you need to replace the battery because it is weak.use only original battery.
-and if it is blink with white screen only try to reset all settings or reformat your phone,if not work hardware problem go to repair shop.

White screen, cant see anything


There are two things involved; its either the display flex is bad or the screen itself is bad.

Give it to a technician to confirm which is faulty and do a replacement.

When you get your phone fixed, be very mindful while opening and closing the phone, because the flex that connects the screen to the phone's main board gets weaker in the process.

Take care

Blank Screen


I think the your screen may have given up due to long use or due to miosture. This may be fixed by changing the LCD sreen from your mobile's authorized dealer.

KATANIA DISPLAY SCREEN BLANK ALL THE TIME NOW


I've been having the same problem, seemingly with increasing frequency. From time to time, the outside LCD is an illuminated black, almost a bluish hue, and the display inside is completely white or greyish, and none of the buttons work. Pressing power seems to turn the phone off or on (sometimes off, and other times on). I use this phone as my main alarm clock, and it worries me that this will happen in the middle of the night one of these days...
