Question [Q]Xperia Pro - Screen Issues

Hey guys,

My Xperia Pro has been running into some problems with the display as of late. What happens is after a short period of keeping the phone idle, it doesn't wake up. When the power button or the home button is pressed, it just shows a blueish-black screen and the lights between the physical buttons light up. Same thing happens when the keyboard is slid out. The backlight of the keys work but the screen still shows a blueish-black color. After trying again and again, the screen finally works, just to run into the same problem after locking the screen.

I tried changing the ROM and flashing a different kernel to no use. Then I finally flashed a stock Gingerbread firmware. Now the screen doesn't show any blueish-black shade or anything else at all!!!! I have currently just left my phone to charge because I don't want the battery to run out during this crisis. I have also re-booted many, many times by pulling out and re-inserting the battery.

Any suggestions and tips would be highly appreciated! Thanks in advance guys!

My Xperia Pro have the same issue . Like when unlock , no screen (black) ,
The issue I found out is having something to do with my back cover
ie. If I remove the cover and reboot , and then unlock /lock , no problem, As soon as i put the back cover , it unlocks with black screen , I was sure no kernel or fw was the reason , as i have been through diff kernels and fws /roms without an issue like this , and as soon as the black screen shows and you try to restart it wont even show the logo , so i was damn sure ,its no kernel issue , Please check this method , i will try to find the exact issue why the back cover is making this.

Update: Found out that the push made by back cover with the battery (which basically may be jamming the strip or something inside) is making the problem , It may have more to it than this ,anyway this is my phone's problem

That actually worked for me initially..removing the back cover and rebooting. But its not now, what ever I do I only see the dim lit LCD screen.
But yeah, I am able to unlock the phone in the blind and also hear the increase/ decrease in the volume by pressing the volume rocker and also touch and hold on the home screen to feel the vibration (guess for removing the widget or something that's already there).

So is there any solution for this, or any first aid before I get my Xperia Pro to the service centre ??
