    Default Nokia 5800 LCD - No Homescreen just lines on screen !

    hi ppl

    just back of holiday.... was using my phone, and then all of a sudden the screen went from homescreen to line after line after line on the screen horizontally across the screen, no cracks as far as i can see in the screen, and i was actually using it when it went out.

    I wasnt hot, i was actually inside at the time, in an A/C room so cant be heat ....

    maybe some has had similar fault?

    Any ppl with a resolve for the fault? just thought id check before i open the phone, could be a loose connection , maybe??

    i have the same problem before,this is a hardware issue bro. Better if u bring your 5800 to service center,they will replace your lcd. I paid SR200 before, in your case i hope you still have warranty for ur phone.

    The warranty for you phone in european union are 24 months, and as you indicated on your profile you are from UK. But if you have being modding cfw your phone you probably have already lost the warranty.

    nop guys ive checked everything, its had it, and too be honest ive given up on it now, The question is wether i dump Nokia all together, and do for andother brand, which for me is a big question ! Ive had a nokia since this start of mobile phones, so its a big shift for me, but really like Android and HTC handsets, not sure about Windows Mobile on HTC handsets. Not really into the whole Apple thing, but i might be getting a 3G with smashed glass, rest of phone is mint, and its only £100, just waiting for him to get his iphone 4 !
    Stuk with a crappy Samsung at the moment, which is sooooo sloooow ! its doing my nut in !
    Need a decent mobile .... and soon !

    sorry Nokia, but your losing me .... I think ?
