Question about Orange SPV C500 Pocket PC
Have been given this phone and when you switch it on the screen lights up but nothing is displayed - it will accept calls but still you cant see anything on the screen any ideas ?
You can try a Hard Reset which will reset your phone to its original
factory settings, but it is likely a bad screen or screen interface problem. Any applications or personal data you put on the
phone since owning will be lost. You can recover personal file if you
have backed them up, of if you have License 'Key' numbers you got when
you purchase them. Some App suppliers will have you an record and will
email your Lic # if your email has not changed since purchase.
To Hard Reset, turn off your phone and then turn it back own while holding down both left and right soft keys till you get a screen asking if you want to Reset it. Another Hard Reset method, if you can get to Start Menu/Accessories folder when phone is powered, is choose Clear Storage and clear the storage. This may not work on some phone models, but note this method will also reset your phone to 'as purchased' state, with all stuff you added since removed.
Note a Soft Reset is the same thing as just turning phone off then back on as normal. It does nothing but re-power your phone, but a Hard Reset recovers your phone operating system from phones MFG ROM and resets it back to original as purchased state.
If this doesn't work, as a last resort, or first try if your handy, disassemble the phone to its screen interface with the phone's printed circuit board. Clean interface and disconnect then reconnect any cable interfaces.
