Hi Nick


Unfortunately after 5 min the screen is black again and the only way i can bring it back up is by keeping my finger on the on/off button and shutting it down and then restarting it.


Sorry for the late reply



Thanks Carlo.

How long did you have the phone for?

When did you have this problem?

Did you install any software or apps on your phone BEFORE this problem started?

Please first try to backup your contacts or sync them with Google Contacts. Copy/transfer your files to computer. Then reset couple settings.

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select Apps
  3. Select Downloaded
  4. On this list, select and uninstall those apps that you not using or not that important.
  5. When done, reboot your phone and test your issue again.

Do you still have the same problem? If yes, we might need to do a factory reset.
