Default White Screen -8900

Please Login to Remove!

My Blackberry 8900 keeps getting a solid white screen after using it for 15 minutes or so (with a fully charged battery). I have to connect it to get it to turn back on. I feel this started happening after I upgraded to 5.0

I have tried a battery pull out on numerous occasions, but the phone will only work after the battery has been out for more than 30 minutes and it only stays on for about 5 minutes. I have to plug it in to get it to do turn on.

Please help! Thanks so much

Did the device get wet? Did you drop it?

What else did you do just before this started, other than an upgrade to OS 5?

try the Leaked 8900 OS 5.0.0.1036. is pretty solid. I'm using it since it came out, no problems so far. Also, check what apps you may have installed recently, maybe you don't have to change/reload your OS.
Cheers!

My wife's 8900 did that all of the sudden after checking everything my brother in law checked the charging port it was starting to get loose and shorting out except her screen went black. Had the charging port resoldered and it worked fine

Please do not write in "text speak". It is much too hard to read. If you use some punctuation and capitalization, you will get a much better response.

I seriously doubt that it is an OS problem.

^^ Yeah, it *needs* the battery to operate.

Without a battery both operations will give you this:


FWIW, mine never loaded up without the battery when i tried out of curiosity...

Hi All,
Try To Take Apart Your BlackBerry 8900 To Reconnect The LCD Flex Cable. It Is Quite Possible That The LCD Flex Cable Clip Is Loose. It Is A Great Idea To Watch BlackBerry 8900 Take Apart Video From Youtube For Reference.
If It Still Can't Work, I Think A BlackBerry Curve 8900 LCD Replacement Is Needed.
