Hi this is a very common problem with all flip and slide phones and even laptops and notebooks, the problem is to do with the data ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board in the bottom of the phone.
now inside this ribbon are several single strand copper wires and over time open and closing the phone causes these to break and you then lose the connection with the screen.

as this is such a common fault it makes the part itself cheap to buy and cheap to get fitted. it isnt something you can do your self as you need specialist tools to take the phone apart and to fit the data ribbon.

if you want it repaired the cheapest place would be one of those small independent phone shops as the bigger one will have to send it off and you will be charged extra for this, the smaller phone shop should be able to fix it whilst you wait or the next day at the latest.

its up to you if you think the phone is worth getting fixed then it wont cost much to get done.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

The LCD og my phone sony ericson w550i turning to white


When it shows white, can you recieve or make calls? If you can recieve or make calls, that means the fault is from the screen but if you cannot recieve or make call, it means its a software problem (virus).

For screen fault, the screen needs to be replaced.

But for software problem, you need to take the phone to a technician. The technician will use computer to flash the phone for you.

Take care
