My phone screen only displays a blank white screen when I switch it on. I can still call people by typing in numbers (which I can't see) and then press the green button, but nothing else. I have taken out the battery and tried again without any success.
Any ideas of what might be wrong and what I can do?
I had white,blank,flicker and fuzzy display errors. Usually happens when the phone is closed and then reopened. Discovered that swiping a fairly stong magnet at the back top right hand side solved my problem. Dont hold the magnet there for too long! The reason i tried this in the first place is that i found there is an electromagnetic switch that switches the displays on and off when opening and closing. The magnet is in the bottom right hand side of the display half of the phone and the switch is at the top right of the keypad side (for a V3i). My switch must have been a bit sticky and swiping the stronger magnet sorted this out. Good way to test is take battery out, open the display, return battery and power on then swipe the magnet.

Re: Only displays white screen
Or you could simply have fried your battery and it doesn't have enough power to show the screen. That is a lot cheaper than an LCD so it's worth a shot. Here's an easy test Hold the # and * keys while you power on the phone if information appears you need a new battery. If nothing appears you need to check your connections and if it's still not fixed, you need a new keypad/flex cable. If the LCD were broken you wouldn't be able to see anything on it at all. It would always be black.

Hi,there are two kinds of white screen in phone, the first one is because of damage LCD (glass screen) , defective display driver (small chips that makes the display works) and the other one is corrupted software...in damage lcd the phone will detected by computer because its software is still working...so , the problem of your phone am sure is the second one , corrupted software....your phone needs to reprogram,and need to go to the model of the phones care center to fix you problem... And also flex can make screen go blank and or white.(if it is a flip phone)The flex is a connector that connects the screen to the phone board of the phone.That can also be the cause, when the flex is damaged,it can cause blank and white screen display .
i hope ,i will help you ,thanks for trusting fixya...
Hi,blank screen is usually caused by bad screen or flex depending on the type of phone you are using at the moment. If the phone is a flex phone that means you will need to check both the screen and the flex.(flex makes the screen to display). When you replace the screen,the phone display will be working again.
This is a major fault, screen gets blank white because of some problem in its display panel which is right behind the LCD screen. Rush to the nearest Nokia care centre and explain the problem to them.After the repair if you experience this problem again and your phone is within the warranty period you can demand a brand new box piece!
