Unhappy my blackberry 9700 shows a white screen

Please Login to Remove!

My Blackberry 9700 Has Been Showing A White Screen For 3 Days Now.
Ive had it aprrox 4-5 months nw.
never been water damaged and has been dropped few times but stil worked great.
3 days ago i took it out of my pocket and the screen was white i then pressed the unlock button twice and it was back to normal.
i then tryed the p trick and it would go back to normal.
it started getting worser later as the p trick would no longer work so i tryed battery pull which still would not work,
it started to become very annoying where sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldnt so i would hold the unlock button and press the screen down as i go along and it would normally work back to normal but no luck now.
ive been searching what the problem may be but as i already know if i do take it to repairs they would lie to me and say its a screen problem which needs to be replaced which i know is not true. ive tryed everything leaving it out battery pull. p trick but it still doesnt work. :(
this is my first blackberry ever and i am so upset i dont know what the problem may be to cause this as this has happened unexpected as i didnt drop it on that day or water damaged.


please help me :( it is very annoying.
everything still works as the red led light is flashing . i can make calls etc.
just the screen is all white :(
please help.

You may have damaged something internally when you dropped it.

What is this "p trick" you speak of?

ive just given it to repairs which will cost me 40 to replace the screen. hopefully it'll work.
the p trick is holding the unlock button and pressing the p button, then pressing down the right bottom of the screen just above the end call button

did you ever think the "p trick" is what damaged the screen?

No. You're already mucking up two threads with your posts. We're not here to hold your hand. Please read the directions and look at the pictures carefully. If you cannot figure it out, please go purchase a new device.

So when are you going to help yourself? Follow the detailed pictures if you must, but don't expect others to hold your hand. You really should demand your repair guy fix it if you actually did pay. You never addressed that either.

Take some responsibility and initiative.
