The LCD is a very complicating device for all CP. you may check it by disassemble it to it's LCD and connect the ribbon wire/flex of the LCD firmly... but this problem is best to replace it with a new LCD... very complicated device indeed

Probably not easy or cheap. However, my wife broke the flip on her w580i and e-mailed Sony Ericsson and they sent her a new one free. Try e-mailing them or calling them if their site has a number -- it couldn't hurt.

I hav dropped my sony ericsson w580i mobile..


If you drop the phone from 5 feet, then the phone may be damaged, and you may need a technician to reapair it.
All you can try is removing the Sony Duo memory card, removing the battery and putting it back in place.
If that does not work go to a mobile repair shop and ask testing a new battery in the phone.
If still no luck, then the mainboard, the LCD, the keypad connector, or the multiple connector at the base of the phone may be damaged. In that case the phone may be permanently damaged, and it must be disassembled and tested at a repair shop to fix it.

My Sony Ericsson W580 just shows a white sceen an i cant go to anything else


More than likely you will need to replace the display screen but before you do take the screen out and reseat the LCD connector. This will sometimes fix a white screen.

If not, a new LCD screen runs about 15 dollars shipped from eBay and is pretty easy to replace.

Check out the following link for instructions on replacing the LCD display and links to buy the screen.
