My bold 9000 has been getting the white screen problem for a few months now. It shows up when the screen comes back from powersave (out of holster, or waking it up after the screen goes blank). I've read through the other posts relating to this problem and it seems there are three possible causes, but nobody has reported a consistent fix. The causes I've read so far are:
Is there any way to tell which it is? Are there steps (aside from pulling the thing apart, buying a new battery, wiping it and reinstalling the software) that will tell you which is the cause?
My unit is out of warranty, and I really don't want to buy a new one just yet, so I'm not keen on poking around inside if I don't have to. Just looking for any diagnostics that will indicate which problem it is without having to waste heaps of time in the process. Also don't want to buy a new battery if the unit is defective and needs replacement anyway.
Some details of my setup:
smartphone (3G, Wi-Fi)
v126.96.36.1991 (Bundle 1301, Platform 188.8.131.52)
16.3MB memory free (after battery pull) 9.2 before pull
859 MB Device Memory
854 MB Device Memory Free
Any means of diagnosing what's happening would be most appreciated.
