White Blank Screen! 8900
Hi, my alarm rang, I tried to turn it off and might have pressed more than one key at a time. Sudently, the screen is completely white. It rings, I can talk and receive everything but I can't see nothing!

I tried Alt + Caps + Del but I don't really know what happened since I can't see anything still. I also uninstalled all applications and software with the application loader of the desktop manager and it still white.

Help me please!

Could be a loose connection between LCD and main board

Hey I just posted a threat on this issue. I think I'm going to try this:

"I think I have a fix. I'll explain what I did and please let me know if it works for you.

The problem: A completely, with an emphasis on completely, blank white screen. Occasionally, the phone appears slightly fuzzy, or glitchy. Also, the phone occasionally appears completely normal. The phone, in my case, worked fine despite the screen problems.

The fix: I found a thread about someone claiming that the four solder points behind the mini usb port somehow created a short behind the screen. The guide said to, first, completely disassemble your blackberry (sorry I don't have the guide here...could look for it today and send it to anyone that requests) After disassembled down to being able to see the green motherboard with the small screen attached, slightly and carefully peel the left side of the screen (the side that contains the mini usb port) a bit upwards until you can see the four solder points. For the laymen, these solder points are simply 4 grayish/silver spots. While taking care to not lift the screen excessively and leaving the majority still attached to the motherboard, take a piece of electrical tape, or any insulator and carefully put it over those four solder points.

Then, push screen back into position, reassemble, and test.

Please let me know if this works for you. My problem was solved instantly.

As for a second major problem of blackberry owners: if your phone will not sync with your computer and you have a bad mini usb port on your blackberry, it is probably because of the mini usb female port of your phone. A replacement of the port is the only solution I know of for this problem

As for a white screen with an hourglass: I think this is probably going to, usually, be a software problem and requires a reload of the operating system using your blackberry software on cd, or software directly from


Its gotta be a loose connection, although i did drop my phone so mine could be messed....

Let us know if you find a solution
