    Sorry for the late reply , It was the lcd screen at fault , I purchased an original one from ebay £22 and was an easy installation , Fixed , case closed

    i am currently experiencing the same problem. would the replacement of the lcd address the problem? is the ribbon independent from the lcd screen?

It's probably a faulty contact strip for the LCD display. There is a ribbon cable with VERY fine tracks on it that clamps into a connector on the main board. If this has shifted, you will get the problems you describe. It can be unclamped, but often breaks the lugs.
If you wish it to be repaired it is possible, but may be a 50-50 for a positive outcome.

If it is still under contract or warranty, then go through the providers, otherwise you haven't anything to loose by having a go.
Buy a decent set of jewlers screwdirivers, and prise up the edge of the clamp. It's like a hinge with catches at the end. Remove and replace the ribbon sheet(cable) and click back into place.

This may solve the problem, or cause more of a problem. as I said - 50 - 50% success rate.

It could be the LCD of your screen or a software has been corrupted. Have it checked by a technician. So that you would know if it needs reprogramming or LCD replacement. Have a nice day ahead! ^_^

My mobile (nokia n73) got switched off while i was updating

Sometimes the update will mess up the phone. esp. if the update goes in to effect right away, not after a restart. try connecting the phone up to a computer. you might be able to recover files and then do a complete reset of the phone.
