Well I have this phone for over 2 years now and now I have a big problem with it that won't go away.
The screen goes completely into stripes and is unreadable. It just showed up like that and it's always when I use the screen-lock button (slide button on the side) that this happends and then stays.
Once I got rid of it by rebooting the phone almost 10 times or turning it of a whole day but as soon as I use the screen-lock button (slide button on the side) it comes back.
Made a picture of it:
I was wondering if someone knew what could've caused this? Or had the same problem and how to get it rid of it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Well, you may try the following steps to resolve your problem:
1. try to update your phone's firmware. backup phone's memory first. or,
2. try to reset your phone, of course backup your phone memory before doing this. Turn off your phone and when it's already off, hold down the Green, Red and Camera buttons at the same time then turn on your phone (still pressing the 3 buttons) until you reached the "handshaking" part then you can release them. Then it would prompt you to enter date, city, etc...

Ok I'll give the hard reset and update a try
Thanks for the replies.
I'll post if it had worked or not
EDIT: Seems like the hard reset has worked, home screen is totally different now then before and screen is working again
Thanks all (:
got the same problem with my Nokia 5800 display as Nielso. I've already done firmware update and now there's 52.0.007.C01.01 version and that stripes are still there. After I've read this topic, did reset (not that one with pressing that three buttons at once, but the *#7370# one) and it hasn't changed a bit . Only thing, that helps me is to warm my phone or to put some magnets on the top right corner and then it works, but that's not constant solution. What should I do with it (except changing whole screen, cause then I'd rather buy some other phone ) ?
Even in latest firmware ppl are geting the same issue : Try this post. After try this setting its working for me.. http://creativepunk.blogspot.com/2011/01/nokia-580
You can put a small magnet on the phone it seems to have helped many people. I have tried many solutions myself however none of them have worked... HELLP!
I use the magnet trick, its now on the strap which has the plectrum on it. The new screen will cost about £40. 3 wont let me upgrade, I still use v 40. Id like to upgrade to v 50, which apparently will solve the issue too.
With the magnet, I could get it going properly even if its been a freezer for about 5 minutes or so. I am thinking of putting a tiny one inside the screen. But will someone give a 3 a kick up the **bleep** and let me upgrade? Come September when my contract is up its bye bye time.
None of the solutions has worked for me but I've realized that the problems only comes out when the phone is locked and the menu light is on. All i have to do is wait for the light to go off and I can unlock the cell and that's it. Of course, this doesn't solve the issue!
I 'm facing with same problem, I've tried all the tricks (pressing call key+red cancel key + camera button then switch on/off key)mentioned here but I haven't seen a proper solution for this problem.. Anyone with proper solution please help.

plzz help me to slove it
Sorry for bad English but plz try to understand b'cos i can't effort to change again and again it display
Was the display changed by Nokia Care technician ? There are reports of such problem when the replaced was not an original Nokia part and was done in a way not recommended by Nokia (i.e. by the user )...
am having same problem with mine. have tried upgrade to v60 and reset and format and magnet story all with no luck. only thing i can't do is have my screen changed coz we have no Nokia support offices in zimbabwe so nowhere to send it for repair. i have found though that it is worse when you are in the clock settings. would this not indicate a software issue? and also if in display setting you set light sensor to maximum it is better. any thoughts?
