the things is currently white screen mode,sometimes reboots when battery etc is removed.sat on it the other day and it fired up,everything visible and working.got a phone call even with blank screen,then would work for incoming.made
one call when screen was in working mode.Problem is i am in argentina and it's arm and a leg to have it looked at.
was second hand.cost £50 so not worth spending much for repairs.Any none offensive advice as to what to do with it!!

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
First, I recommend that you attempt to boot into Safe Mode:
It may take you multiple attempts to get the ESC key sequence (press/release/hold) correct, so be patient. When successfully into Safe Mode, see what happens.
If the behavior ceases, then think carefully...what happened just before this behavior started? A new app? An update? A Theme? Something else? Think carefully as the smallest change could be causal...and attempt to undo whatever that was.
But if the behavior continues in Safe Mode, then there may be more drastic measures you'll need to attempt.
Good luck and let us know!

Thanks for the mail....sorry to say no good.I have only been using it as a phone,don't have the know how to do technical things like apps and such so it's not infected!!!......think it's more physical, a knock?no water involved.
when i take out the battery it doesn't reboot every time only after several tries.well thanks again,will have to revert back to the pigeos!!!

Well,I asked my son to check with the local repair shop in UK and they suggest that a new screen is the solution?
60 quid but here in Argentina is about 115 quid..........can i sell it for scrap,if so where?
many thanks for your help.
