| | blank screen on 7280
Please Login to Remove!
I had a Cincinnati Bell 7280 that i dropped and cracked the screen. It put a big black spot on the screen. I bought a new unlocked Cingular 7280 on Ebay and put the old SIM card and battery into the new unit. It worked good, until i tried to restore my settings from my old phone.
After loading all of the old settings, it worked for a short time... i tried to call voicemail, and it worked, but then the keyboard locked up and it eventually rebooted. When it came back up, I tried to navigate around but the system froze again. This time I tried just holding down the power key for a few moments.
Suddenly, the entire screen turned upside down and then it went blank. When I connect it to my Win xp system, it sees the BB and can even talk to it. I even tried reloading the settings again.
I also used the reset hole inside the back several times, no luck. I removed the battery and SIM card and put them back in. Nothing. It's almost like its running but I can't see anything... just a guess.
Anyone seen this before?
What really sucks is I leave for a 5 day trip in the early AM. I may try putting the SIM back into my old phone for the trip... I can at least look around the "black-eye" on my old screen.
