    Solution to "The Dreaded White screen!!!!!!"!

    Advertisement



    So I got this pearl from a guy at my work that had the screen fade out into a white screen. And everyone says to send it in for a new one (If your under warrenty) this phone wasn't!! So he gave it to me to see if I could fix it. I took it apart and got looking at it and found nothing that looked wrong. Well after three days of playing. I got sick of it a decided to disect the screen!! well come to find out. The very thin metal case that surrounds the screen and holds it to the logic board was shorting the screen out. So I ripped that case of and what do you know my screen works!!!! Its 4:15 pm right so we will see how long my screen last!!!! wahoo!!!! I wouldn't go trying to do this if your phone is under warrenty! Send it in to get it fixed.

    I am very frequently outside and in the pool. Probably from too much sun light, or maybe moisture. Hopefully not moisture, since that will void my warranty!

    Solid white. It goes away after my battery is out for about 15 minutes. And the funny thing is, when it is in hot temp, it takes longer. Cold temp, the screen loads in less then 15 minutes. W/e by friday I will have a new pearl.

    If I backup my pearl, will I be able to transfer ALL my apps and info to my new pearl?
