Out of the blue - or so it seems - my screen will no longer turn on.

I was listening to music and pushed the power button to change the station and the screen would not turn on.

When I push and hold the power button the phone will vibrate briefly, indicating that the shortcut menu to reboot/ mute the phone has come up, just that the screen remains black.

When I try calling myself the screen will not turn on nor will the phone ring.

When I plug the USB cable into the phone, the screen remains black instead of turning on like it normally would.

The screen will turn on randomly on the rare occasion, but the screen wont respond to touch.

Help!

Not sure that will fly Google. I dont believe there is a warranty beyond the 30 days you have for return. Worth a try though!

Thanks. That rebooted the phone and fixed the problem for now. Now it works most of the time, but now and then the screen will still fail to turn on when pressing the power button.

There's a one year warranty, where are you located?

Help!
