Hi guys,

Just this morning, my N70 had a strange problem. Everything on my screen became very garbled. Like a Sky UHF channel that hasn't been decoded.
Parts of what was meant to be displaying would display, but not in the right colours.
The rest of the phone operates normally. Can dial, receive calls etc. Just can't make out anything on the screen!
I've tried removing the battery, reflashing with the latest firmware, etc. But hasn't worked.

Has anyone come across this before? Its really strange, and really annoying. Idealy, I'd like to be able to fix it myself. I'm thinking there might be something inside thats causing a short circuit or something, but can't find any torque stix to take it apart with! Argh!

Sorry for the thread dredge.

Did you ever discover the cause of the problem?

Did a new screen fix it?

Unfortunatly, no.

I've pulled it apart and the only signs of visual problems was the small button cell battery had green mould around it. Nothing shorting though.

I also tried a screen from a friends N70, and the same thing happened.

I shed a tear for you, old friend... *sniff*.... UNTIL I GET MY N96 THAT IS!!!!
