5800 screen corruption

My 5800 has been fine these last 6 months but a few days ago it developed a fault whereby the screen corrupts when keylock off is selected.  Sometimes it clears in a second or 2 other times it refuses to come back and repeated use ot the keylock and the red button are the only cures.  The screen displays many horizontal lines and it is not possible to read anything but pressing the screen will activate any icons you touch even though you do not know which one you have pressed.

I have the latest software update.  I have not tried a hard or soft reset.  Took it back to local store today but its a new fault to them. they have offered to send it away and give me a loan phone meanwhile.  Before I do that, I thought I would ask if anyone had seen anything similar.

Re: 5800 screen corruption

Thanks for the reponse, that article is very similar to my problems and it sounds like my display is failing.  As time goes on its getting worse and pretty soon I think the phone will be unusable.

 

Back to the shop it goes........!!

Re: 5800 screen corruption

hi i recently got successfully repaired my broken screen on my 5800 it was working fine for a few days and then i updated the Firmware to V5... when it turned back on after update the bottom half of the screen was white and the top half is corrupt and looks like 1cm chunk of what should be on the right of the screen is now on the left...it also effects the digitiser which leads me to believe that it must be a software problem.....ive flashed the firmware (V5) over and over again and still no difference during the flash process however when the screen says nokia local mode and the screen looks fine so this must be a software problem???? 

 

if any one could help then that would be most appreciated!!!!

Re: 5800 screen corruption

Downgrading the firmware is not possible at user end.. It may be possible only at Nokia Care with specialized equipment / software.. but if you have changed the LCD screen yourself  they may not do it for you now... Just take a chance if you want...
