I hope that when you say blank it means partially lit, with a kind of background, but no image.
This solution is not for an abused phone, as it does not seem to be mechanical, or due to a loose connection. It rather seems like a firmware failure. It will not make your phone usable, instead, it will enable you to retrieve your saved numbers. Once these cheap things start failing they become disposable.
Tried removing battery: No cigar. Tried opening it carefully (under 90 degrees) still no solution.
Here's what worked for me. Phone off, either by powering it down of by having removed the battery.
Get a toothpick, and with the phone CLOSED in the off position, pinch the power-on button and let the phone come on closed. It may not work the very first time, but you should be patient. Once it comes on, you can do just about anything with it until you power it down.
**Make sure you have charged your battery prior to this, since will be spending some time retrieving your numbers**

Good Luck!

Try charging it with a known working charger.
Remove the battery, Give it three sharp taps on the lower left corner, replace the battery and try powering up again.

Screen on phone went blank


Hello,

The problem with your phone is just flex problem, the flex on the screen of your phone is weak or worn out, this is a common problem among slide or flip phone.

What you need to do is to replace the flex on the screen of your phone, you can get this done by going to any local phone repairer within your vicinity to help get it fix or replace.

Once the flex is replace, your phone display problem is solve and the screen will start displaying.

Take care.

Purchased in sept 2009 and screen went blank in oct 09.they replaced it and now its doing the same thing


Hello,

can you still receive calls even when the screen is blank?

I don't think the screen is the problem of your phone, but a flex problem. This blank screen issue is a common problem with slide and flip phones.

This occurs as a result of constant opening and close of flip or slide phones which makes the flex to worn out.

The flex is the one that connects the screen to the phone main board, and once this flex is weak/worn out or loose contact, there won't be any display on the screen.

Therefore check the phone flex and not the screen. Screen doesn't just get spoilt, except it hits the ground or something.

Take care.

Shine a bright light on it and see if you can see and resemblance of the display on the screen. If you can see a display, the backlighting on the screen is broken - if you can't see a display, it's likely the screen is broken or the display controller is broken. Backlight would be the cheapest fix, usually. Also, you should be able to transfer your phone numbers over to a new phone by using the same SIM card so long as the phone numbers were stored on the SIM card - the only way to find out is to put it in another phone and check out the address book.
