yesterday i had my cell on my lap while i was driving.. when i got off i dropped it.. this is like the 3rd time i dropped it..
well it was working fine.. then all of a sudden i looked and i saw the SCREEN WENT WHITE AND THE KEYPADS WERE LIT UP... after that the screeen went OFF.. and i cannot get it to turn on again... THe key pads will not light up either... i can hear the noice when i click the pad but i cannot see anything..
i still get calls n messages... n my light turns red on top.. but the screen just wont turn on..
CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLZ!!!
so the screen and keypad light seem dead but it still receives calls/messages?
I am not sure there is much that can be done if that is the case. Do you have insurance? Call up your carrier and see about an exchange.
NOpe.. i dont have insurance..
i want to see if theres anything i can do.. if not then i will just take it to get fixed
Try a battery pull reboot. If that doesn't work then I think your display connection or something in your display itself has come loose. And a trip to the repair shop is necessary.
This sounds like the white screen of death issue experienced by many Pearl users. I had this happen to me with my previous Pearl and I never even dropped it. Dropping a BB can definitely cause hardware damage as all the internal components are extremely sensitive.
If the above suggestions don't work, take it in for repairs.
i reset.. i even tried OS upgrade.. so i had to go to 4.3 beta again... and dat didnt work..
i tried tossing it in tha floor sum more.. haha to knock it back into workin.. but nothing..
i guess.. repair shop
THANK YOU PEEPS
well goodbye have a good weekend.. its time for this bad boy to go party..
PS: lava gurl "the white screen of death" hahahahaha seriously it suxs huh...
and i dont get insureance cuz i buy a new cell erry 3 months so theres no use on gettin it.. till now.. lol cuz i actually like this phone..
But i guess.. ima just buy da Nokia N95
