Hi guys. Any help. My son's Nokia N70 is not working properly. When it comes up it shows a white screen. I suspected that it was a memory problem. So we placed the memory card into another N70 and deleted most of the stuff. But to no avail. I can connect the phone through cable on PC Suite. But not much on the phone anymore. I tried the hard format suggestion. Keeping the buttons in. But still no solution. Can anyone help? Thanks, Jac

Does it show the Nokia logo during boot or is the screen white permanently? If the latter then I'd suspect that the ribbon cable between the phone and the screen is damaged or partially disconnected. The screen still gets power (hence it is backlit) but it gets no data so it doesn't show anything...

I have a different problem. After switching off and back on the phone it fails to boot. It flashes white and writes that "the phone failled to start up, contact your retailer". After half an hour of trying it swithing on and also plugging in the charger cable it always starts up. But the problem is that it takes at least half an hour of continuous switching on and off.
I have taken it to the official service, they upgraded to the latest sw version and told me that they can not do more for me. Otherwise, when I do not switch it off and on, it works fine. Is it a problem of memory/cache? I am asking it because after having taken back from the service where they made a hard reset on it, it allowed me to switch off and on and change battery without any problem: it booted immediately. But after a couple of weeks it started to failing to boot.
My sw is v 5.0737.3.0.1 13-09-07 RM-84

Can you help me what to do?
Than you in advance

My problem have been solved by replacing the mainboard with a working one . I had to find a cheap used n70 with working mainboard at a cost of 25 usd.
