Thanks for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

Can you tell me, are you referring to the phone or the Tablet?

Thank you

i am referring to the phone.

Thank you

First, can you remove the battery from the phone and wait 3 minutes.

While waiting, hold the power button down for 30 seconds, then release.

Then put the battery back in, turn on the phone and tell me if the screen is now working please.

Thank you

No Richard, I don't!


It is the Backlight that has faulted.

A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to restart it. The fact that the screen does not turn on at the recovery menu (Which I just had you enter) confirms this.

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the phone to have it replaced. It is a known problem, and is covered by the warranty, with the replacement performed at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
