I woke up this morning and my Curve 8520 had a blank white screen. It worked fine last night and it has never done it before. It came back on for 10 minutes and then it went back to white earlier today. Connecting to PC and changing the battery does nothing. This is the software version I am running, 5.0 Bundle 1168 (v22.214.171.1241, Platform 126.96.36.199). I am not running any third party apps.
Thanks in advance.

It is also possible that your battery or BB has experienced a problem...to test, this sequence is needed:
The results of this will indicate if it's your BB or your battery that has the problem.
Good luck and let us know!

You are most welcome...if the problem is not physical (e.g., hardware), you might have some luck with this:
