9860 Torch Display corrupt (upside down)

Sup!? The 9860 is the most flawed bb model ever. 1stly its charging port gets damaged easily. I had it repaired twice, and the 3rd time it didn't just stop working.. It came off with the charger.

After having it reinserted, a new frustrating problem emerged. The Display is upside down and flipped (mirrored) - it is said to be a common problem with this device and yet there's no straight solution or reason as to why that happened.

Can someone please advice on a solution. (Pls note I have no Warranty so having the phone replaced is out of the question)

This problem is really annoying.

Thank you in advance

Re: 9860 Torch Display corrupt (upside down)

I'm quite familiar with the 9860 model and this is the first time I've heard of this mirrored or upside down display.

There's nothing common about that.


Have you tried reloading the operating system?


For the USB port, can't help you. Try having it replaced again. I've had two for a year and know several friends with the same model without having any USB port problems. Be careful with it.

Re: 9860 Torch Display corrupt (upside down)

I also thought its not common but just hit google regarding this and you'll see that it's the only bb with this illness.

The best way to let you witness what I'm describing is direct you to this youtube video. I came across it while looking for solutions.

To answer your question, I've down OS upgrades/downgrade, wiped phone countless times. It is not a software problem. It's hardware related.



Also u can search this forum for "9860 inverted dispaly" and see what I mean.
