    Screen flickering problem

    JUST got my phone from ebay and after like 20 mins of using it.. the screen randomly started going on and off, anyone know of a solution to this?

    The screen just turns pitch black and can't be used every semi-second then it brightens up again.

    Soft reset didn't work....
    Hard reset did nothing....
    Once i DID hard reset the setup didn't flicker but it started instantly again once i goto the today screen.

    I even manged to upgrade the phone to WM6.1 despite the flickering and that STILLL didn't do it....

    ideas? or is it dead? =[

    UPDATE: I found HOLDING the power button keeps the phone from flickering and allows me to go through menus without the flicker, but I have to hold down the button pretty hard.

    I would say you have a broken device. Hopefully you got it from a reputable ebay seller that will refund or replace.

    yeah, i figured i'd have to...
    Luckily, the seller will refund or replace it.

    I love it though, its my first Pocket PC/Windows mobile phone and it is gonna suck to have to wait two+ weeks to get a new one :/

    Thanks for the help.
