IPhone :: 4 : Screen Blinks Rapidly And Goes Blank
For several days now my phone's screen will start blinking rapidly then go blank. First noticed this after disconnecting from my computer after a night of recharge. Now it happens at random times, but several times a day. I cannot restart the iPhone in this condition; the only thing that works (and it works every time) is a reset. So I can always get back up and running. But this need to reset several times a day seems odd.

Nokia :: Screen Turning Black Rapidly
I have an N78 that has been working fine with me until 4 weeks back when i noticed that the screen turns black after approx. 5 seconds. i tried to adjust the power-saver & light time-out options (by extending them to max. allowed time period) from the personalization menu and nothing worked. my unit is updated to firmware21.001.051.1.I am wondering whether this is a hardware or software issue or could be a virus i also noted that when i lock the phone and the screen is black, sometime, it lights up by itself for few seconds and then goes to black again.

BB Torch :: Screen Won't Turn On But T He Red Light Blinks?
Last night my phone randomly shut itself off. At first it wouldnt turn back on so I did a battery pull and it turned on. But it was saying that the sim card wasnt registering. So I just shut it off. Now the screen wont turn on. I know the phone still works because the Red Light will blink when I plug it into the charger but still no screen.

BB Curve 83xx :: Dropping Calls Screen Blinks On And Off
Out of no where, my phone is now dropping calls. All of a suddent the screen blinks on and off, before the backlight should turn off (it's set for 30 sec) and if I'm on a call, the call is dropped every time the screen turns off. Has anyone had this problem or have any advice? The phone isn't even a year old. I've had it for about 8 months. I've also noticed that when this starts happening, the tracking ball gets real sluggish.

Xperia X10 :: Screen Has Split In Half And Only Blinks On And Off On The Bottom Part Of It?
I have an X10 that I've had for over a year. I recently updated it and since then the screen has split in half and only blinks on and off on the bottom part of it. I can re-install the software and sometimes it helps, but I'm not too sure what else to do.And since the update I've been having problems with Mediascape, it comes on by itself and plays music. I stop it, shut it off and it opens again and plays music. I was wondering if there is something wrong with the Mediascape on these phones. Could it be buggering up the phone?

IPhone :: 3G Not Responding - Blank Screen
Had a bit of a problem with my iPhone 3G today. Having used it earlier in the morning to listen to music it was fine. However, when I went back to use it and wake it from sleep mode the screen would not show up. Instead, it just stayed blank. The only way I could get it to light up was to plug in the charger, which allowed me to enter my passcode and use it as normal. Again however, when I put it to sleep and tried to wake it, I still only got the blank screen. I have since plugged in the charger to wake it again and turned it off. Seems to be working okay now, but I'm a bit concerned it will happen again when I am not near my charger.

IPhone :: New 3GS - Blank White Screen
I got hold of an iPhone 3GS two days ago. I was charging the phone when I press the home button and the whole screen went white. Can anyone tell me the cause of it? And whether I am able to get a replacement from the store? It is working now after depressing the top and home button for 10 seconds, but I am paranoid as it will happen again.

IPhone :: Blank White Screen
So my iPhone screen stopped working. I was on a phone call, everything was working fine, the call ended, and it took me back to my contacts page. I hit the home button, but nothing happened. When I hit the home button a second time, it took me over to my favorites (like what happens when you normally double click the home button). My next idea was to hit the sleep/wake button. I did that the screen clicked off. When I tried to wake the phone again, the screen was an all white blank screen. The weird thing about it is that if I try to wake the phone up, if sweep my finger across the screen like you do to unlock it, even though its all white and blank, I hear the click of unlocking it. To me, it seams like the phone is still working, just the screen is all white. The only buttons that don't work properly are the sleep/wake button and the home button. Between these two buttons, the only features that don't work are powerdown and reset.

IPhone :: Blank Screen On Twitter App?
All of a sudden Twitter has stopped working on my phone. Whenever I click on the app twitter loads to blank white screen with a blue bar acoss the top. Also when I try to go into the twitter settings menu it freezes and I have to go back to the home screen and end the settngs process before I can use it again.
I've tried deleting and re-installing the app, turning phone on and off, resetting the network settings and restoring from a back up and nothing works. I also tried downloading Echofon, another twitter app which wouldn't work either which suggests the problem is with the phone.

IPhone :: G3 - Screen Goes Blank - Mostly With Phone Calls
I'm having a problem with my iPhone. The screen goes blank. Mostly with phone calls. i.e. when I'm on a call and another call comes in. When the screen comes up to for me to make a choose between accepting it or not, then it goes blank before I can answer. When it comes back it is locked and I have to unlock it and mess he call. It also goes black at the end of a call, which does not matter because the call is done, but now and then when the screen comes back and I unlock it, the call is still connected. I have to push both buttons to get it to come back, then unlock it, after the call to make sure the call is really ended.
It seems to mostly happen when a dialogue box comes up i.e. unmute, speaker on or off. My first iPhone was wonderful, this new one freezes and when I rotate the phone it takes a few tries before the screen re-orientates. I'm not sure if it a new feature I'm not using right? I still love my iphone, it just seems to have taken a step backwards.

IPhone :: Screen Goes Blank - When Make Call
I just got my new iPhone and downloaded 2.0.1. Now every time I make a call and talk the screen goes blank. When I am ready to hang up the screen won't come back on and I can't hang up or do anything - I just stay connected to my call until they hang up. Then I have to wait up to 5 minutes until the screen comes back on to make another call.
