    7100 is blank and dead

    Advertisement



    My 7100 just went blank while I was trying to dial a number. The screen became pink and then the phone went dead. No screen, no light, no sound

    I have removed and placed battery, I have reloaded the handheld O.S (interestingly Desktop software detects the phone, I could back up data, reinstall O.S through the computer) but the phone remains blank. I dropped the phone a couple of times and the screen will go pink, but usually it becomes normal after removing and placing the battery.

    Do you think this is a hardware failure as O.S is working fine. just that I cannot see or hear anything on the phone !! ? Some advice will help

    sounds like hardware failure. what happens if you try to plug it into charger? maybe the connectors are bad now after dropping it?

    yes, it is confirmed it is a LCD screen failure. I have got it replaced now and it works fine. it seems the repair chap had a spare LCD screen from some other BB. I was charged $40 for it in India
