    DB:4.40:W995 - Screen Goes Black When Slider Shuts dj





    Hi,

    I have a W995 that I have been using for the past 2 years and it has been great. Recently this problem cropped up where the screen goes black when I close the slider. Once I open it, the screen stays black and does not recover. In order to start it again, I need to switch off the phone and switch it back on. I have to do this everytime I close the slider. All functions resume as normal. I can receive messages and calls while the slider is shut and the songs play as well.

    Can someone help me with this? I cant find anything on the forums to help me.

    Thanks

    Hi

    I too got the same issue today. I tried software update/repair using PC Companion but issue not resolved.

    Is it a software issue? Is there a way to restore the original version of software the phone is brought at as i suspect the issue surfaced when i unknowingly updated the software.

    Please clarify

    Thanks,

    Vinitha

    A little more detail would be helpful to correctly answer your question.That said, it sounds like the ribbon cable that attaches the lcd to the board in the main part of the device has been damaged.

    If I have a decent sized project in PE7, and I move the time scale slider or when it renders to dvd or a folder or renders animated menu items, the screen goes black for a while then comes back on and then goes off and on a few times then comes back on when the task is finished. I have an I7 machine with 3 gigs of ram and fast drives. Vid card is an NVIDIA gtx285 with 1 gig of DDR3 ram Machine shouldn't have a hard time dealing with things. Any ideas?

    I made a MPEG4 using Lightroom 3.2 exporting to slideshow and when it opens in Quicktime, the slider plays (30 mins., 392 MB) but it is a black screen. However, if I drag the slider, you can see the photos. And if I drop the slider at a point in the video, it shows a photo but does not change to the next photo, but the slider continues to run.

    There are too many problems to list them all but the main problem I am having is:
    During a live call the screen stays black unlike the 3g when u take it away from your ear the 3g's screen will come back on to allow you to use keyboard or end call etc....With my Iphone 4 now while trying to hang up the screen goes totally black and I cannot use the end call button....I try to hit the sleep on off button and it freezes the whole phone up and the phone lock slider is frozen after every call, In other words I have to wait for the other party to hang up because I can't hit end call. It is annoying! What happens when I need to use keyboard during calls??? The screen stays black while on a call????
    Is there a fix for this???

    DB:3.00:Iphone 4: Problems With Hanging Up Screen Goes Black During Live Calls.. xz

    I've been having this problem and of course, never asked Applecare about it before it expired. Duh, me. It also has nothing to do with a case such as an Otterbox and I know this becuase I've had my 3GS in it since day one. Very frustrating not being able to access the end call button or the keypad. Trying to pay bills by phone, forget it. I flip my iPhone over again and again, shake it, slap it, it will light up for a split second and blah. The best solution I've found to avoid this irritating problem is when I'm paying bills I'll put it on speakerphone right away and open the keypad. It doesn't solve the problem but it keeps me from getting ****** at my phone having to listen to the automated vocie from the cable/insurance/electric company repeat itself!

    DB:2.88:Slider Error? z7


    Hi and Welcome to the Community...and apologies for the delay in replying!

    First off, I would check your OS level:

    KB23393How to check the model number and version of installed BlackBerry device software on a BlackBerry smartphone

    And compare that to what is presently available:

    http://us.blackberry.com/support/apps-and-software/desktop-and-device-download-sites.html

    If you are not up to date, then you should do so. You may also need to use a different carriers OS package just in case your carrier has not released something newer that may have a fix for this (no guarantee, just a theory!).

    You may also want to try this procedure to perhaps narrow down the precise causal item:

    Load your OS "bare bones"...if anything is optional, do not install it.
    If the behavior presents immediately, then try a different OS with step 1
    If the behavior does not immediately present, then run for as long as it takes for you to be sure that the behavior will not present.
    Add one thing -- no matter how tempting, just one.
    If the behavior does not present immediately, then again run for long enough to be sure it will not have the same problem
    Repeat steps 4 and 5 until all things are loaded or the behavior presents

    When the behavior presents, you know the culprit...the last thing you loaded.If the behavior does not re-present, then you know that either step 1 or 2 cured it.If the behavior presents no matter what, then you likely have a hardware level issue for which no amount of OS or software can cure.

    If it is hardware, then you need to check your warranty provisions, which would have been provided to you at your time of original purchase. RIM provides a 1-year manufacturers warranty to the original purchase who buys via authorized reseller channels, but RIM does not directly service any warranty. You need, as I say, to check your specific documentation to determine what your warranty provisions are. If you don't have that, then contact your original place of purchase for guidance. Sorry, but the methods can vary by region (sometimes warranty is serviced by the place of purchase, other times by authorized service centers, etc.), so no one here can give you specific advice...your original purchase documents are the authoritative source of information for you.

    Good luck and let us know!

I thought it still might be a a battery thats unsnug so i put a tiny piece of electrical tape folded up, between the battery release tab and the battery. It's definately snug in there now and its still happening. I'm downloading 1.02 now. Also I don't know if it's normal but the device is getting pretty hot underneath the keypad. PLEASE HELP

    DB:2.73:Screen Won't Work, Sometimes - N95 8gb 7s


    Hi,

    Had a few problems as of lately with my N95 8GB, not really impressed with it to be honest.

    Amongst other things, the worst problem would have to be the slider mechanism.

    - I'm not sure how to explain it properly as it's complicated, so please bare with me -

    Every time I move the slider from Landscape(music player) to Portrait(key-pad and all) the screen goes black until the bottom of the slider reaches above the 7, 8, 9 keys. Essentially, it doesn't work from starting to move it to the Portrait mode from the Neutral position, to just before revealing the whole 7, 8, 9 keys.
    Music and the like play in the background through all this happening, as the phone just goes into the "locked mode" and the screen turns off, so the phone is still on.
    Ofcourse there are exceptions, like when I move the slider up and down fast, and seem to trick the phone, but I'm guessing that's mostly irrelevant.

    tl;dr The screen doesn't work for the middle third of the entire slider movement.

    Not too mention the secondary camera not working - period, or my calls only working on loud-speaker.

    Yep, this is the least of my worries.

    Anyway, thanks for any help in advance, hope you can help.

    And one final note, I'm stuck on firmware v 11.x something, and I run my computer on Vista. Since NSU doesn't support Vista, is their anyway to update it to v 20.x without going to a Care Center or whatever they are called?

If you now accidently press the red, green or white function key when the screen is blanked (e.g. when in your pocket), the advice message still comes but it does NOT prevent unlocking with the slider shortly afterwards. Wait for the white LED to fade and then you can restore the screen TO FULL BRIGHTNESS with the slider. Multiple-use of the slider is fine - works like a dream now!

    So install 21.0.025 as soon as it is available. Also solves rotation problem and seems to be generally faster.

    Has any one who have the w995 or any other slider phones experienced not being able to turn the phone on?I can still use it when I turn it off and power it on while the keypad is closed. But when it's on and try to use slide the keypad out, the display will be all messed up, and there was one time that the screen went completely blank.. I can still use it,however, I'd have to turn it off and on all the time.Can someone help me?

    Well perhaps the ribbon wasn't replaced correctly, or there's another hardware issue such as the LCD screen.I suggest you take it back and have it re-examined by the technician.

    There's an oblique reference to numbers of graphics cards here:

    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303215

    (I just noticed that the tech specs do say 'one of the following graphics cards' in both minimum and recommended configurations, but I think that's coincidence rather than subtle specification.)

    I think the 3-display problem has merely been noted (and reported) by some people in this forum who have more than two displays.

    DB:2.62:Unlock Pattern Bug zp



    First of all this is minor Bug, but still - BUG!

    There is phone configuration description:

    Phone: Xperia X10i

    FW: android 2.1

    patterns - default slider + unlock pattern

    Bug description

    1) when phone is locled, press home or power button.

    2) move slider, to be able to draw pattern.

    3) start to draw pattern and wait till screen goes black (do not remove your finger). So your pattern is not finished and screen has gone black. Try to remember place of the finger.

    4) press home or power button again.

    5) finish unlock pattern from place you was, when screen turned black.

    6) your phone is unlocked!!!

    So, if you did not finished your pattern and your screen have gone black you might think, that the phone locked, but this is not true. YOUR PHONE CAN BE QUITE EASELY UNLOCKED IN THE POCKET!

    Okay, are you up for an OS wipe and upgrade? Not 100% sure itt'll solve your problem, but it's worth a shot.

    Please follow the following instructions:

    Do a backup of your data with Desktop Manager.

    On your PC, download an app called BBSAK (BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife). You will use this to wipe the OS from your device.Also on your PC, download the most current OS for your device, which you can get here.Connect your device to your PC and launch BBSAK. It will ask you for a password. If you don't have one set for your device, just click OK.Choose the option to Wipe Device. When completed, you will be left with a white screen and an app error 507, which means the wipe was successfull.Disconnect your device.On your PC, navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\AppLoader. Delete the file at the bottom called vendor.xml.Connect your device.In that same folder as above, there's an executable file called Loader (has a little phone next to it). Double click on that and it will start loading your OS.

    Once that's completed, you can restore your data with Desktop Manager with the backup you did earlier. If you have any third party apps, you can also use BBSAK to back them up and restore them.

    Let us know how it goes!

    Does this happen on calls that you initiate or calls that come in while the phone is asleep? If its only on calls that come in while the phone is asleep, that would be normal behavior. After a call comes in, the iPhone returns to the state it was in before the call. Also, as Tamara suggested, if you are using a case for the iPhone, make sure it isn't covering any of the proximity sensors under the top of the glass.

    DV6000 series all the way up to the 9000 series seem to have a problem with the video chip. You need to remove the mother board, remove the heatsink, locate the video chip and useliquid flux on each edge of the video chip until it start to come out the opposite side (do this from all 4 sides). Put aluminium tape (about a 2" width) in strips along all four lines of the chip to protect the other components from heat. Heat the video chip slowly to around 90 C to allow absorbed moisture to evaporate. Then a gradual rise in temperature to around 230 - 240 C for about 30 - 60 sec in order to melt the lead free solder balls under the video chip. You let it cool some what slowly by dropping the heat to temperatures under the 200 c mark quickly and then short times at 150, 90 and off. What this does is remelt the solder and eliminate cracks formed by thermal cycling. A more complete fix is replacing all the lead free solder balls with lead/tin solder balls (called reballing). The lead solder is more resistant to thermal cycling. Here is an example from youtube:

    DB:2.58:Laptop Screen Goes Black 3s


    There is a test you will need to perform.

    Get yourself a flashlight and power on the notebook.

    Shine the flashlight onto the notebook's LCD display.

    If you see a very dim normal Windows desktop, then the display's backlighting solution has failed.

    If your notebook is of the newer vareity with LED backlighting you will have to replace the entire display assembly.

    If your notebook is the older variety with a CCFL (Cold cathode florescent lamp) and display inverter then the display inverter should be replaced.

    The display inverter is not that expensive and for someone with a technical background it is a pretty simple DIY project. Video instructions can be found on Youtube and other instructions can be found at Insidemylaptop.com.

    OK.

    Your notebook has a display inverter.

I can connect in 'media transfer' mode but this does not permit contacts backup. But when connecting the usb lead I cannot see the screen menu options to change the connection mode.

    Any ideas appreciated!

    First of all, restart your phone and wait a few minutes to be sure that you are on the stand-by screen.Then using your centre (to select) and navigation keys press in the following sequence: centre--down twice--once right--centre--down 4 times--centre--down twice--centre--centre--up once--centre: your phone should now be in USB PC/Phone mode.

    DB:2.57:5800 Display Remains Blank Despite Using The Lock/... 7d



    With firmware v20.0.012 on a German, blue 5800 RM-356 I have this problem which was not in the v11 FW. I did a successful, legal update with NSU v1.4.98 and restored my settings with PC Suite 7.1.18. The theme is a standard Nokia one. The fault is as follows:
    The display is turned off (standby mode) and then I press the middle, (white LED)menu key. A message appears faintly saying approximately (in German) "Use the lock/unlock slider to free the screen". I can use the screen for some seconds but it fades again and goes blank (black). What drove me freaking crazy was that using the lock/unlock slider now lights up the green/white/red LED keysbut the display itself stays blank. The touchscreen vibrates when I hit it and I think the taps do function but I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING. Using the slider again will fade the LEDs and everything is off. Retry with the slider and the LEDs come on but no display! The phone refuses to get out of this mode despite using lock/unlock slider many times and waiting 10 minutes etc. I have to turn the 5800 off completely and restart to get back to normal.
    A hard reset *#7780# (or the corresponding menu option) did not improve this really.

    Solution to what seems to be a bug in FW 20.0.012:
    Display is off. Press the middle (white LED)menu key and while the display is still faintly shown, activate the lock/unlock slider BEFORE THE DISPLAY FADES AGAIN. This brings up to the display as normal. Phew, what a relief!

    This took days to work out the problem. If you accidently touched the middle, white-LED menu key once, when the 5800 was blanked (in your pocket?) then the lock/unlock slider only brings on the 3 coloured LEDS and no permanent display.
    Does anyone else suffer from this? I though it may be happening when the battery was low but now it seems to be easy to replicate.
    Nokia.. please fix this!

    Seems to be a case of failed Firmware update.. Have a look at this thread . Your phone being an S40 device the options are extremely limited as mentioned.

    If nothing works, the ONLY solution that remains is to visit Nokia Care...

    Black screen just after bootup . Can go into Safe mode but when Normal windows is selected screen goes black

    DB:2.57:Black Screen After Startup Screen 7f

    Hi,
    Can you access Safe Mode? Repeatedly tap F8 as you boot? If so you can try Control Panel - Device
    Manager - Display Adapter - Double Click on - Driver tab - click UPDATE driver - then Right Click
    on Device and UNINSTALL - REBOOT.
    Another method to try to access the desktop (try in both regular Windows and Safe Mode) is to
    CTRL + ALT + DEL and on Process Tab find EXPLORER.exe and END PROCESS on it - then
    on Applications Tab - lower right - New Task - type in EXPLORER.exe . Safe Mode is reached
    by repeatedly tapping F8 as you boot up.
    First check this thread in case its a simple one and if not come back to this thread.

    Black screen issues are extremely tough to repair and any fix is usually on a hit or miss basis.
    That there is no information on a black screen like there is on a blue screen just adds to the
    difficulty. Often using a restore point nor startup repair will have any effect. You can try a
    google to see suggested repairs some of which have worked however these cover a wide
    field of efforts.

    Run the iOS native music player and play a song. Now press the volume buttons and change the volume of the song being played. The volume goes up and down, and that's it. Perfect.

    Now open the Spotify app. Play a song. Click on the song album art to get into the menu for the song, showing album, artist, etc. Here is where you find the volume slider. Adjust the slider. What happens? The iOS volume icon overlay appears, which is a redundancy because the Spotify volume slider already shows this.This is an interface design quality issue, and something that a company with the stature and quality of service that Spotify enjoys, ought to rectify.

    The iOS white-on-black volume overlay display should only appear when the volume is adjusted and nothing else on the screen exists to indicate the volume level to the user. When the Spotify app already has a volume slider being adjusted, the overlay should be suppressed.Please rectify this, since that redundancy is clearly a sign of bad interface design.

    DB:2.55:Proximity Sensor Going Haywire 8a


    When one makes a call and places the phone next to the ear the proximity sensor should shut off the screen to preserve power and prevent unwanted key presses. When removed from the ear the screen should re awaken allowing one to access the phone interface.

    However my iPhone 3G seems to go nuts whenever I remove the phone from my ear to finish a call. The screen goes black and I cannot terminate the connection. I have to wake up the phone with the power button and slide the slider just to get back to the homescreen.

    This surely is not normal behaviour?

    DB:2.55:Proximity Sensor Going Haywire 8a

    Think I've worked out the problem. It seems that the case is covering or partially covering the sensors located to the left of the ear piece in a different position from the original iPhone - I'm using my old iPhone case.

    I think I can kind of work around it by peeling up the case in that corner when I remove from my ear but I guess it means having to buy a new case after all. So thats case, dock, car charger ... Starting to add up now
