White screen 8530

Have you tried a reset or a reboot? Try these steps:

1. Power off the cell phone by holding down the power button for at least 5 seconds. The screen should turn black. Now, let go of the button and press it again until the screen lights up again.

2. If the screen is still white while holding down the power button, open up the back of the cell phone and remove the battery. Wait for 30 seconds before putting the battery back in, to allow the software to reset itself. Put the battery back in and press the power button until the screen lights up again.

3. If you removed the battery and you still have a white screen, you may have a software issue. Go to a local cell phone repair company and have it replaced or fixed.

I have an Apple iPhone 3GS with the 4.1 software. The iPhone keeps switching itself off. I would lock the screen and want to unlock it a couple of minutes later and then it is switched off. The battery...

Software glitch or battery issue. Backup and save all your data and music. Then reboot and re-update the software. If that still don't fix it, then you got a problem with your battery power management. The system thinks the battery is low and automatically shuts off to preserve the contents. Try charging battery fully overnight with the power off and see if that helps. If not, then you will have to see the Apple dorks at the Apple store for a replacement phone. Cheers.

I put a code on black berry storm and i z=went to

I think that putting different incorrect codes must have completely locked your phone for security reasons. You have to thus change your software and get a new one for your phone. Thank You.

Invalid battery

Pull out the battery *while the phone is on*. Wait 15 secs then put battery back in and turn phone on. That should fix it.

Display screen says "invalid battery" All works fine, what does that mean?

your battery may be putting off an incorrect amount of voltage to the phone, and powering it on (yes) but frying it internally (no!)

Meaning, the battery may make it work, but it is not good for the phone.
