Re: n73 blank screen when switching on

If you leave the handset on, do the lights eventually turn off and come back on when any button is pressed?

Re: n73 blank screen when switching on

I think he says he's phone's screen goes blank often or now it is not working at all. In this case, do what adamf said. Or try the 3 button action: Pres 3, * , the green call key at the same time.

Ok.. so have you tried what i suggested? Turn the phone on. Wait a few minutes. Do the lights still remain on? or off?

Re: n73 blank screen when switching on

Ok, this is difficult, lol. Normally when the phone vibrates all by itself, its because its got wet. Is this possible?

Some phones give a little vibrate burst when the phone turns on (Such as 6280), but i have a Nokia N73 with me right now, and this doesnt. If the screen comes and goes, its probably a hardware fault so maybe a faulty LCD. But the fact it vibrates at random would suggest liquid damage. I dont firmware will help you here. Find your nearest NCP (Nokia Care Point)

Re: n73 blank screen when switching on

Ok if that is the case then that is good. But you will still need to take it to a repair centre im afraid. They will confirm there what the fault is.

Re: n73 blank screen when switching on

hi nokia advises to use formatting code *#7370#.
This is the safest way.
If you don't succed try pressing * 3 green call button and power button.
This is a hard format.
By the way usually blanck screen problems occur (if phone was not flashed) due to users keeping their phones in their jeans pockets. when you sit down you apply pressure to the display as it is close to the outside plastick covering.
This causes the displays circuit to be damaged and voila display lights work only.
I\ve seen it a lot of times.
Hope I could help.

Re: n73 blank screen when switching on

Thank you very much for your answer. I don't hold my phone in my pocket. And i was downloading the update using nokia software update when it said that connection is lost, after that after trying to turn on my phone there is only light for my keyboard and screen. I've tried things you've recommend but combination of keys seems not work and i've no idea how can i enter other one not being able to turn my phone on.
