    My K800i has all of a sudden just switched itself off. For a couple of minutes prior to it turning off the screen played up a little. Extra lines and flashing screen. Now it will not power up. There are no flashing lights anywhere. It has been fully charged (as far as I can tell) but still no life in it. I have tried diferent batteries. All to no avail. Can you help please? Thanks. Bri.

    Hi! All of a sudden my phone stopped working on. When I try to power it on, the infra red light flashes three times and nothing else works. I have tested the battey and it is fine. I have tested putting in another battery, tried powering it on just on charger, and with/without sim card. I am desperate for a fix. Please help

I had a simaler (note: not same) problem with a white screen on a k510i, first try removing then replacing it making sure the ribbon is pushed firmly in, also the red light on the infra red happened after my 8 month old girl had a chew on it, so im thinking water damage or a short somwhere, not sure if letting it dry would cure it though, (bought a new one,she now keeps the k510i) first port of call would be to giv it a good clean
