My screen just went black for no reason!! I had just looked at a text 10 minutes earlier. Felt it vibrate for an incoming text and when i went to check it all i got was a dark/black screen. I could see the lights at the bottom lit and i i could tell the phone was on because i swiped down on the lock screen and felt the home buttons react. I have taken the battery out twice, and still i dont see nothing. Any ideas what this is or how to fix it?
When i fire up my youtube app, i get a quick black screen flash and it goes back to home screen. The app doesnt launch at all. It was working just fine for several months, all of a sudden it started doing this.
This was reported in the other thread about X8 Issues, but thought to start a new one to gather feedback from users. It's about the ''black screen'' freezing issue encountered by some users. I have had this several times since owning the phone for a few weeks, so it is a recurring issue. Problem: The phone hangs or appears to be shut down or become unresponsive suddenly. Pressing the hardware buttons doesn't help as the phone doesn't react at all. Solution: Take out cover and battery and restart.Observations: From my own observations, it's not actually a shutdown but a major freezing/hanging. Sometimes when it happens, I can still see vague shades of the display at an angle. After leaving the phone for a while in the pocket, the phone comes back to normal again. Not sure if this is true for all users with this problem. Anyway, gathering more feedback to see how prevalent the problem is, to evaluate whether I should take it to the SE service centre, or whether doing so will help at all.
1) After I make a call, the screen goes black in a matter of seconds. I'm typically using a headset when I notice this. To end the call (or enter numbers in a call menu) I need to press the sleep button to get the screen to light up again. This is a pain in the a$$.I have the screen timeout set for 2 mins.
2) About once or twice a day the home screen will lock where I can't press anything. I need to reboot to fix.
Sometimes when I hit the screen/power button the screen will stay black and i can see the menu bar up top fine but all else is black. If I hit the home key then all lights up fine. Then sometimes Ill hit the button and it works fine.
Ok this actually happened for the first time last night and it was really scary with a three week old Evo. I was charging my phone and using it when I would recieve messages and such. My screen would time out like it should then I would recieve a text message. I would then unlock the screen, put in my password and the screen would view the go black. I could still hit buttoons although I could not see what I was hitting. I would hit the power button to lock the screen, unlock it again, it would view for a moment then black again. The navigation buttons at the bottom stay lit when the screen blacks out. At this point I dumped alot of different applications I had on my phone along with Home Launchers. Troubleshooting: 1) Restarted the phone by powering down. (Result) The screen still went black upon restarting. 2) Unpluged phone from charger. (Result) The screen went black for a few times, but once I left it locked for a few minutes it seemed to work fine for a while but eventually back to the black screen. 3) Checked animation and application settings. I had Beautiful widgets weather animation on along with the HTC Sense weather animation on. I uninstalled beautiful widgets. Also I looked under display> animations and my setting was on no animations but the beautiful widgets was displaying before deletion. (Result) It worked for quite some time, as I thought I had fixed it but my phone went to the black non-time-out screen with my phone just sitting on the desk. 4) Check Brightness and screen timeout. My brightness is NEVER on auto and The screen timeout was set to 30 Sec. (Result) I turned the screen timeout to off, and My phone screen has not turned black once. ***Just to add I know for a fact that when my screen was going black that it was not the screen timeout as the navigation keys would stay lit and you could still type things and have access to the screen just without seeing it*****Conclusion*I'm not really sure what the issue is with this, I think that with the settings and certain applications running and confusing the phone that it was trying to do too much and didnt know what to display. For now my phone hasnt done this all day long so maybe it was just a hiccup. I am thinking that having alot of apps that do the same principles running at the same tim eg. Beautiful widget animation and HTC weather animation, along with trying to perform its normal tasks the phone just got confused. I will keep anyone interested posted about this issue, I know this is a big issue listed on Sprints forums. Anyone else have this issue or ideas?
I don't know what this is, but when I looked at my screen today on a white screen, I noticed a very small black dot or speck. At first I thought it was just some dust so I brushed off the screen - but it was still there! I even flet over the area to make sure it wasnt a scratch, no scratch! perfectly smooth on top. I even restarted the phone to see if it was some software display issue. Nothing is making this stupid thing go away! I have never dropped the phone or anything, does anyone have a clue what it is?
When I soft rebooted a few weeks ago, I lost a bunch of settings (like wallpaper, default notification sound, skype). Also the HTC weather widget stopped updating on its own. I can manually update it but it stays at one location, not the one I am at. Used to work fine. Seems like "my location" doesn't update for it. I ahve tried to reboot, reload widget, reset my location settings - no change. My stock web browser also resets at some sites (this one especially). Never had this issue before.Tried to update my profile and the screen just goes black. Stays that way until I hit the back button.
Does anyone else's phone just go black (not off, just black screen) while browsing? Late at night ill be using my EVO browsing the App store. Ill download 2-4 apps and play around with them, keep what I like and uninstall what I dont. Ill read the news, use friend stream and read reddit. I am using wifi, no task killers, froyo, (problem existed with 2.1 as well), but for whatever reason my screen goes black.
The phone is not off, the 4 buttons at the bottom are lit up. Pressing the power button brings the screen back on but sometimes it just dies out to a black screen again. I've done a soft and hard reset both to no avail. Is anyone else having this problem? How many apps can the phone handle at one time?
I have Flickie Wallpapers and went to load it. Screen went black and froze. Had to open the phone, remove the battery and reboot. When I came back, I got a message that my SD card is damaged. Maybe there is an app that can check and possibly repair the card?
Came into work this morning, plugged the phone into the Samsung dock, was trying to get to my gmail when the screen went out. Well, I've had some annoyances with the screen timeout, so I thought nothing of it. Tried pushing the power button. Nothing. Took the phone off the dock. Tried again - nothing. The backlight comes on on the capacitive buttons, but the screen is black. Held down the power button - the power off/airplane/silent toggle comes on. Okay, I thought - maybe it's frozen up. Powered down, got the VZW splash screen. Powered back up, got the whole bootup animation. After the VZW splash screen, screen goes black and I'm right back in the same place again. I've also tried this process with removing the battery. Same thing happens. Seems to linger at the Verizon splash screen longer than I remember, too, on bootup. About 20 seconds. So to recap, here I am: The backlight on the capacitive buttons is on (and not dimming, btw). If I hold down power, I get the power off menu. Otherwise, the screen is black, and not responding to any button presses. I'm running Launcher Pro, otherwise stock/not rooted. Need help - don't have time to go wait at the vzw store for an hour today.
I opened this app (battery booster, can't post link because I am new) after downloading it excited to hoping it was better then a previous one I was trying that seemed to do next to nothing.I saw the brightness button and hit it. It showed 11%. I was like oh I thought I had this all the way down.so I use the scroller to take it all the way down assuming 0% meant that it was the lowest it could possible dim the screen.well it sure is a battery saver considering I can't even see my screen as its completely BLACK 1. Why would you even allow something like this in a app. 2. Please help me fix it. I have tried for about an hour to assume where the scroll down, and mounting the phone to my computer so that I could possibly uninstall it via computer with no luck.

HTC Evo was working fine, started noticing screen flickering but phone continued to work fine. Updated to froyo 2.2 and did sprint updates, phone still worked fine, then next day in the middle of playing with phone screen flickered and went black. Tried removing battery and rebooting several times but no luck. Left battery out overnight and tried again in the morning white htc screen appeared and then flickered out to black. did a hard reset, with the screen still black and still nothing. I've gone back to my phone after it has set for hours untouched and press the power button I can see the lock screen but it too goes away after a second or two. Phone is functioning lights at the bottom of the phone are lit and respond when I press them just no visible image. I don't have the insurance so I'll have to pay for all the fixes myself and I've had it since August so there is no returning it to the store. I've searched the web and I haven't seen a solution to what the problem could be is it the LCD screen or the motherboard. I'm ordering another screen but I'd hate to find out it is something else.
My PreferenceActivity contains a nested PreferenceScreen in another PreferenceScreen and I'm applying a theme to my PrefenceActivity that changes the background color. However when I open the nested PreferenceScreen I get a black background and I cannot see the options.This happens with android 2.1 , but it does not happen with android 1.6.Any ideas on how this can be corrected?
I just got a new HTC Evo and when I use the youtube app it just goes to a black screen like it is loading but doesn't do anything, but if I go to the browser and go to youtube it works. I can't use any of the soft keys at the bottom, I have to make the phone go to sleep then open it again. I was wondering if it just takes long to load or if the app is broken, I am only in a 3g area but I wouldn't think that that would affect it. It shows my notification bar but doest let me access it
My HTC One X Plus fell down recently, and has got a ' triangle flag' like mark on the top left part of the screen. (But not on the Gorilla Screen). But each day, when I see it, the black mark getting disappeared , as forming lines in the triangle flag (the original screen getting viewed through the lines).
When I try the phone screenshot option, the complete screen is captured with no black mark on it.
When I contacted the service center, they asked me to replace the screen. That is very costly
Is it really needed to replace the screen or will it get disappeared eventually?
I am running cm7.03 with lordmodue6.7 on my htc inspire 4g. I just went to look at a video on youtube and noticed that their was no visual just audio. I uninstalled it then installed, but no luck.

I then checked youtune on my browser and same problem..
I Have a galaxy note 2 n7102 (Clone).I have rooted it 2 days ago.i have the android stock boot animation but when i added a custom boot animation, when i rebooted the screen goes black and then the phone starts up
I tried to put it in system/media and data/local and change boot animation and Samsung in system/bin and reboot but nothing happens.
My Galaxy S4 screen is just completely black. I can turn on my phone and even put in my pattern code on the screen, but it remains black. I have tried to reset it multiple times and I don't really know what to do. Any possible fix without having to get a repair.
After buying a HTC Desire in August, I've been very happy with it. The best phone I have ever owned. And after rooting it and installing LeeDroid's 1.9a ROM, I've been enjoying the tweaks and a2sd+. Anyway, I have a Telus Desire which I unlocked and am using with Fido. I followed this guide to root and this to install the LeeDroid ROM.
Ever since then, however, I have not been flash any new ROMs. When I flash a new ROM using ROM Manager, it goes to the white screen with the HTC in green then the screen/phone just shuts off becoming unresponsive until I take the battery out then in again. When I open ROM Manager, it gives me a pop-up that says "Recovery Failure" with three lines which say:
- Recovery mode is "broken". - ROM Manager doesn't reboot. - Other.
I tried to reload the clockwork recovery using ROM Manager and Unrevoked. Didn't seem to fix the issue. There is an official OTA update that I couldn't install due to the same issue. If you have any input as to how I should fix this issue
is any1 having the issue where the screen goes black in middle of use after a momentary pause but the soft keys are lit up and nothing can be done to wake up screen yet keys stay lit & only thing to solve issue is pulling battery as a means to soft reset phone ? i already hard reset device cuz of this & phone is 100% stock including zero market apps
Can anyone confirm the fact that webview is broken in the 1.5 sdk? Either that, or update the code page on the google developer side as neither that code nor any other (including my previously working webview code) is showing anything but a blank black screen.
in my app, I came into an Activity from the pre Activity's UI (such as:click a TextView which has added OnClickListener), like this way, after several times, I came into a deeper Activity. I left it for a while (such as left away) , when I came back ,I returned the Activity before the last Activity. then I got a black screen.
I an using a non-rooted EVO and I have been paying close attention to my email notifications. I get the sound and the envelope in the upper corner (using TouchDown, Gmail and Hotmail) but once my screen goes black, I go no visual notification. For SMS, I am using SMS Popup. This is not something I want to return the phone for but would love a work around if anyone has an suggestions.
So when you normally make a call and the screen turns black when you put the phone next to your face. When you pull it away from your face the screen is supposed to come back on. My Ally's screen refuses to light back up. If I slide the keyboard out before the call ends the screen will come back on. If the call ends before I do that I have a black/dead screen for a random amount of time. This happened on stock rom and Velocity.
