Default BB 9000 bold screen problem

Please Login to Remove!

I'd post a video but, the forum rules dissallow me to do so..It's hard to explain..Anyway..When I lock the phone and then unlock, the screen is white. Nothing would remove it except the menu button. And not just when the phone is locked, if it's unlocked and the lights turn off and when I press any button it will still be white. Those who have skype, you can contact me on it..there's a skype button near my profile (to the left, you'll see it :| ) so I can send you the video link which would help a lot!

It sounds as though the device has been physically damaged at some point. As the device is rather old, I'd recommend looking at changing to a newer 9790 or 9900 or even waiting for BlackBerry 10. You'll spend more than the device is worth trying to repair it.

Mhm, I'll see what I can do, and how much would the repair cost. If nothing, I'll try to sell it to someone for a small amount of money (~50 euros max let's say)

Yeah, I'd say your repairs will likely be more than 50, though I'm not sure how it all works in Bosnia. It can be over 100 here in the USA for older devices like the 9000 due to parts availability. I would investigate that cost, the cost of a new device, and perhaps try to sell the 9000. I don't know how much it would cost from a carrier shop, but you should be able to get a brand new 9790 for 350 or less. I would avoid buying a used device.
