Default 8520 White Screen ?!

Please Login to Remove!

Ok. So I have a BB 8520 & I Dropped it. When I Picked the phone up from the ground I Noticed that the Left of my screen was completely white & My right was fine but with a white tint to it. What's the problem and will BlackBerry Warranty Cover it? If Not, How and Where can i get it fixed. How Much will it cost?


Thanks for all your help.

Probably a broken screen. Have you tried a battery pull just in case?

As for cost, check with a repair center. Pretty sure you can find a replacement screen someplace if you want to do it yourself. Problem is, you really don't know what else is wrong.

What type of repair centre would you recommend?
