    if i try to turn on my nokia 6111 it automatically turns of after the nokia introduction even before the main menu shows up in the screen. is it due to a damage in the cellphone program/software or due to a broken hardware of the cellphone?

    Yes I have the same problem with my 6111. This is currently away for repair but I have just been told it is unrepairable. The phones4u support person told me it would cost £50 to £60 to repair it, thison a phone which is just 9 months old. I have arranged for the phone to be sent back to me. Where do I go from here?

I had the same problem with my girlfriends 6111. I managed to fix the phone, but i did have to open it up myself and get a new ribbon cable to replace the damanged one. Basically one of the springs had been pushed the wrong way and this was acting like a scissor action on the ribbon cable for the screen. It cuts part of the cable so no image can be seen but power is still sent, thats why it only powers up white. Doing this yourself will void the warrenty but the warrenty on this phone had expired and i was being quoted £35-£40 to get it fixed. I managed to do it for a fraction of the cost!!!

Its not the ribbon cable if the phone displays the battery symbol and the nokia logo when you turn it off. My 6111 does this too, I have a feeling the memory just got too full and its now unable to boot.

For some nokia mobiles you cannot reduce the brightness of the screen. They have the default brightness settings only.

My nokia 6111 screen goes blank

It is not a common problem. It seems that either the connection to the LCD is broken somewhere, or the LCD is going or the display IC has gone. It it is the last (display IC) then the phone has to be thrown away as even Nokia thinks it beyond economic repairs. Earlier two can be rectified by Nokia Care.
