Question about Sony Ericsson W850i Cellular Phone

My screen won't work

I have a sony ericsson w850i. When i switch it on, 90% of the time it will come up with a white screen meaning i can't see anything but still my alarms on my fones will go off and i can still receive texts and calls except i cant see who they are from, or what the texts say. Once or twice, i have switched it on and it has worked but the screen will keep changing colour and will go up and down. Then if i leave it to lock, the screen will just go white and the only way to switch the phone off is by taking out the battery.

    very similar problem to me, ill be using my w850i but whenever i push it up to use the keyboard itll go weird and then eventually white, itll stay a white screen for about 4 days then when i try to reset it itll work but the same as before when it does show the white screen itll still work as normal its just hard to remember how to do things or where my contacts are i also fail to see the point in spending £40 to get it fixed when i can buy a new one for £15, its been like this for a good 4 months now so im guessing it wont fix itself

    exactly the same problem, its a software issue, i know that for a fact, resetting the phone doesn't work, neither does updating the software on it, i have already had this fixed before but i don't know how, i am getting it repaired again for free on Tuesday (22/0/08), i will report back with specific details on how to get this problem fixed.I think the firmware needs flashing with a fresh original copy. i have takes my phone apart completely to clean it with cotton buds and attempted to put it back together without success, now when i try to turn the phone on, the screen just flashes white every few seconds, so my advice on that is don't try it until you know what you're doing.

I had the same problem before. theres nothing wrong with it, it just needs a new lcd screen. u can either fix it yourself or take it to a mobile repair shop.

Big problem!!!

As long as the phone is flashing white and black , you need to have the firmware reflash back into the you can do this by going to this is a pay site not a free one or take it to a mobile center and have it reflash there as well.
