HTC EVO 4G :: My Screen Just Went Black

Aug 19, 2010

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?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 :: Blank Screen / Black Screen / Hang / Freeze Error?

Dec 2, 2010

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.

HTC EVO 4G :: Screen Going Black When Making Call And Screen Locks?

Jun 23, 2010

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.

HTC EVO 4G :: Screen Goes Black

Sep 2, 2010

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?

HTC EVO 4G :: Black Dot On Screen

Oct 7, 2010

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?

HTC EVO 4G :: Can't Update Profile / Get Black Screen

Sep 1, 2010

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.

HTC EVO 4G :: Too Many Applications Causing Screen To Go Black?

Aug 9, 2010

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?

Samsung Fascinate :: Screen Went Black

Sep 13, 2010

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.

Samsung Fascinate :: Used This App And Now My Screen Is Black

Oct 19, 2010

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 4G :: Phone Working But Screen Black

Oct 17, 2010

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.

General :: Black Marks On HTC One X Plus Screen?

Aug 13, 2013

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?

HTC Desire :: Update / Flashing ROM Black Screen

Sep 22, 2010

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

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.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Screen Goes Black Then Reboots

Oct 15, 2010

I'm happier than a pig in poo with my Droid 2, the thing is amazing.However, my girlfriend's not so much. She got the deal from Wireless Amazon Beta, where she only paid 39.99.I wasn't able to, wasn't eligible for upgrade and got mine at the store.Anyhow, her phone a couple days in would freeze, the screen would go black, and then it reboots.Now it happens a couple times a day at least.Obviously seems like it's defective, but I'm wondering if anybody else is dealing with the same problem?If so, have you taken into Verizon. what have they told you or done for you?Wondering if she should send this back to Amazon Wireless, or head into a Verizon.And I'm wondering what kind of return/exchange/refurbishing headache were in for.

HTC Desire :: Screen Stay Black Sometimes But Phone Still On

Jun 8, 2010

Several times now my Desire's screen has just stayed black when pressing the power key to unlock it. It's like it's in a deep sleep with no way to wake it. If you call it the screen will not light up but the phone will either ring with no way of answering it or just flash the missed call light. The call can still be silenced or rejected with the buttons.

So my question is this a hardware or software issue? I'm inclined to think software because pulling the battery then rebooting solves it, until it happens again, sometimes the same day others a few days later. I always switch the phone off at night to give it a fresh start each day. I do not use any task killers or obscure apps. Phone has minimal virgin mobile UK branding on it, and running firmware 1.15.405.4 with no option to update to the newly released version.

I was using Lock 2.0 for lock screen and helix for my home. Finally, we were able to get it back working, but I can't for the life of me tell you what we did to get it working again. Has this happened to anyone else? Anyone know what could have caused it and how to prevent it in the future?

Android :: Screen Becomes Black While Swicthing Activity

Jul 17, 2009

There is an activity which fetches xml data from the network, parses it and displays it in the UI. When the user clicks on any of the link or button on the screen I call startActivity with new Intent object of the same activity. I do this to have the activity on the history stack. Previously I just called setContentView of the activity without starting the activity again, but with this I cannot have the previous page in the history stack.Now the problem is - each screen normally takes up to 20 seconds to fetch content, parse and display. when the startActivity is called the screen becomes black until the next UI is rendered. I wanted to keep the previous screen showing until the next page loads.Please tell me 1. Is there a way to do this? 2. Is it good to start the activity again for each page. If not how to have the previous page in the history stack so that I can use the Android's back button.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Boots To A Black Screen?

Sep 12, 2010

I have a Galaxy S (GT-I9000M) which doesn't boot past the start-up splash screen and sound effect. Eventually it will just switch to a black/blank screen and do nothing more. The back and menu buttons still light up if tapped.

The history how I got it this way, was I was using the app web-sharing lite to transfer some files through wifi without the need of a usb cable. I was transferring a large movie file when the phone locked up. I reset the phone, and upon boot every app and service was crashing. Tried this a few times, then pulled the battery etc, still the same. Then I booted into recovery mode(vol up+home+pwr), and applied wipe data/factory reset, then rebooted. This is when it started to only boot into the black screen.

This is a Canadian phone, service/bought through bell, the phone had the one click root applied to it so TI Backup could run on the device. So I think I'm out of luck with any warranty service.

I can get into the phones recovery mode and download mode, so I think there is still hope for this phone to be recovered. What I don't know is what firmware version Bell ships with these devices, and where I can download it?

Android :: WebView Displays Black Screen

I have a listview that when you click on an item it will take you to a WebView that displays some static formatted text associated with that list entry.

I had it all working with a TextView but I wanted to be able to use HTML formatting for the text and figured the WebView was the way to go. Right now it is just supposed to display a generic link for testing purposes but when the viewContent intent starts it just goes to a black screen. I can go back and pick another entry and it also just shows the black screen.

I'm not sure what code you are going to want to see so here's the viewSection class file and the viewsection.xml layout.

Nexus : Black Screen After OTA-update To 2.2.1 / Way To Setup

Sep 29, 2010

Yesterday I received an OTA with 2.2.1. After unpacking and installing the update my phone rebooted as normal. When booting the Nexus-logo appears, but afterwards the display remains black. There are indications that the phone boots up as normal, as I can hear the sounds (ex emergency-call) when pressing the display. The display works perfect in boot-menu (rescue etc)

I've tried to do a factory reset and pulled out the battery several times to try to reset - all with no luck.

In addition I've placed an update.zip on the sd-card in order to perform a new manual update, but after choosing recovery, my phone restarts and the screen turns black. Any idea how to solve this?

But when I'm talking on the phone the screen goes black and if I try to unlock it to schedule something in my calendar, etc., the screen just goes black over and over and won't stay active long enough for me to unlock the screen. This is exceedingly frustrating since I can't use any apps when I'm on the phone, and I have to push the button on the top to get the screen to light up at all if I'm on the phone, it doesn't automatically light up if I take it away from my ear to look at something on my phone.

Black Screen Lag On App Start Up - Splash Not Displaying?

My app has a splash page on startup, during this time it will connect to a server and download a file, once the download is done a 3 second timer will start then the main page of the app will load.

However, due to crappy connection in my workplace, the download can sometimes take a while, during this a black screen will show until the download is done, then the splash page and timer will start. What I want to know is why the splash page will not display over this black screen?

Code:
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.splash);
