Trying to fix my sons 8520 which had a damaged screen. Anyway, have a new screen which I fitted easily enough, powered up the BB but all I have is a white screen. At first I thought maybe I had bought a crap screen so I reconnected the old one, although cracked would still tell me if the problem was with the new screen.
Anyway, the old screen was completely white as well so I refitted the new and this was still white. When I say white, I mean completely white, no egg timer, no error message no nothing just lots of lovely whiteness which fades after a while and kicks off again at regular intervals. I'm guessing this is the BB rebooting or at least trying to.
What I have done so far...................................(apart from swear a lot)
Have tried a clean install of OS 5.0, no joy
Have completely wiped it with the JL_Cmder utility, no joy
Followed lots of guides of user groups, Youtube etc, no joy
So, apart from putting it in the bin does anyone else have any suggestions?
Edit: Forgot to say, the phones functions still appear to be present because if I press the voice activation button it asks for a command. At least it did before I wiped it!
