NB:read to the end before trying any of this and remove your memory card first
the flex of your phone is bad and cannot be fixed by just anybody. it is advised that you send it to a repairer to help you check it and then see if it's just the flex or both the flex and screen. Although this is quite common to some nokia phones but try
(1)switching it off, then back on
if that doesn't work, try,
(2)you can switch it off, wait for some time and see
if it still doesn't work,try
(3)hard resetting(you would lose all data so try using pc suite to back up first).hold down *#7370# or *#7780#. in both cases, you lose all your data and default lock code is 12345(unless if you changed it)
lastly,try this combination.....switch off your phone,hold down the green or call button,the *(asterisk)button,and number 3 button,then switch on your phone.(hold it down while switching it on and don't release until it is fully on and asks you to do some setup. if it's still the same contact nokia or send it for repairs because i dont think a software update can help but feel free to try that out too.hope this was helpful?

    * Just give two to three taps on the front upper left of the screen while it is on.If something is vaguely displayed,problem is ;the data cable to the screen is loose.

    Remove the outermost case of the phone and then look at the left down side of the board with LCD panel.There is a flexible wire with connector there which would have gone off.It is the one which passes data to the screen.

    (Take due care not to short any exposed points with any metal while the phone is open)

    *using some flat thin tool,try to push the header to sit properly on the connector.
    *If you have been using the phone for quite a long time, it's bettr to clean the connector and put it.Remove the 4 screws that you can see around the keyboard and slightly lift the board with LCD panel.The connector will be disconnected and snaps off.
    * Spray some perfume into the female connector(attached to the board below screen)and clean it with a clean pointed painting brush .
    *Put back the male connector (header ) by pushing

Display problem

If formatting your phone doesnt help there are three possible problems in order of priority (1) your screen is gone and needs replaced (2) your ribbon cable is gone and needs replaced (3) phone needs flashed, I have repaired the first two above on many samsungs with this fault! Not an easy job! Hope this helps.

Phone screen goes blank to a grey color (externallY) .

same problem, broke my screen, ordered a new screen off ebay and replaced it. now it works fine most of the time but sometimes external display freezes. sometimes goes black, sometimes goes multicolor pixelated (full screen, in blocks, or lines) when this happens sometimes touchpad still works, others not. removing battery usualy temporarily fixes.
