    LCD screen replacement

    Advertisement



    Well the bad habit of sleeping in bed with my 8100 has caught up with me. Last night i fell to sleep with my 8100 working great and this morning a woke up and the LCD screen was shining even though the back light was off. I tried powering off the phone and although the power is off the LCD screen is still on (think the reset screen without the hour glass).

    It was a real pain today as its totally killing my battery, forcing me to buy a charger in town and asking someone too to charge it for me (yeah i'm THAT addicted). Anyway i was reading up and it looks like i can't just up and buy a new LCD screen to replace this one because they need to 'match' somehow.

    Any help/suggestions? Thanks

    So, is the screen just white? Have you tried a battery pull?

    Yeah i did 2 batt pulls this morning and 2 more in town today....the phone works fine it's just the LCD screen stays on even though the blacklight is off ever when powered off. I just wiped the phone with JL_Cmder and its at the 'connecting to device' stage. See if that works, which i highly doubt. Thanks for the reply btw.

    Oh God Reddog say it in't so! My phone cut the hell out at the mall just now with nothing but a white screen! I'm home now and the DTM has connected to the phone and it's 'working' but while in standby mode there is a glaring white screen! Is that the dreaded white screen of DEATH?! *dun dun duuunnnnn!* I'm doing another wipe with JLCmder.

    Thanks for the help.
