Fuzzy screen recently my sony ericsson w880i has had a bit of a problem with it's screen. it appears "static" with fine lines flickering horizontally across the screen. the first day i noticed it, it was really bad, but later that day it calmed down significantly, but still noticable to me. any ideas what caused it, or how to fix it. it is still under warranty.

    I have the same problem, but a step further!   My screen sometimes shuts down completly (the lcd, not the backlight which still works).  I restart my phone, pull out the batt, put it back in, then try and turn it back on, and the backlight and keypad lights come on, but no lcd.  Normally it sorts its self out eventually, but havne't had anything for 3 days. Very distressing, all my contacts and msgs are one there, and i have no way to retreive them if i have to switch phones!  Will buying a new screen help do you think? ta

I have exactly the same problem with my W880i. Suddenly, one day, out of the blue it went half and half, the right side completely blank(yet still with the back light on - I think - ). And a few months later (now). It suddenly randomly went completely blank - back light definitely on -. It happened today,and I am desperately searching for a solution. If I take the battery out, put it back in, turn it on, I can feel the vibrate, and notice a slight change in colour on the screen. But it stays completely blank, and hasn't changed in hours. So ANY help would be appreciated.

Se w880i - phone starts then wont show anything on screen

Ok, so whoever said you need the flash, shold flash their brains! Your backlights are burnt on the LCD - to change it costs about $80 because you need a new LCD screen at the same time.
