Hello I've got an Tmobile Ameo wich is a brand of the HTC Athena with an Olipro SPL copyed on it with the Athena Unlocker by Olipro.

Today I've copy much Data on my Microdrive useing my Windows Xp PC and the Programm WM5torage. I did this serveral times before and it works everytime smooth.

But today my Battary went out of power while this copyprocess and I didn't recognize it because the Athena was turned to Silent.

So my Display went of.
So I changed the Akku but when I pulled out the empty one my Athena show a very strang just white Screen.

I put the new full Battary in and tryed to launch.

But if I drop down the power key just the light of the "OK" and "Windows" Buttons goes on. If I press the powerbutton agein they went off again. There is nothing on the screen.

If I try to Hardreset the device then there happens nothing instead of the Actionkey light went green and off again.
But one time I tryed to enter hardreset mode I first saw the Screen with the different Colors from the Bootloadermode but then a verf similar screen but just with a blue color and colors between grey and white.

After this I recognized that If I touch some places of the device the Display turns on but only white and after a time off agein.

This is very strange because nothing mechanical happent to the athena.

Entering Bootloader Mode ends in the white screen too without success.

What should I do?

Edit:
I just recognized that my Windows Mobile is still running.
If I press the Voice Button there are 2 beeps and if I say a name he also repeats.
So it must be just a display problem but I dont understand because the display still works.

Edit2:
Next Thing if I press a bit on the back of the device, the screen is normal again but after sometime there comes grey lines and then it goes fully white very slowly.
