E90 outer display went dead - no display of any kind. Replaced with third-party. Now comes on all bright white but no picture. Display dims etc properly on time-outs. Everything else works perfectly.

Did you reconnect the screen properly? The backlight is obviously getting power but may not be getting a video signal. Are you sure the screen you purchased is compatible with the E90?

Correctness of the replacement display is a question I hope someone who knows can address here.

I've been trying to find a cheap as-is E90 so I can harvest a genuine Nokia product, but meanwhile tried something from the aftermarket. They're typically advertised as being compatible with several Nokia phones including E90 but the sellers may not really know.

The front LCD display uses a reasonably robust multi-pin connector and thus reconnection is probably successful. Nokia troubleshooting recommends examing that connector, then the two on the edge of the carrier board, thence back into the lower half.

I wouldn't call the effect I see on the display 'backlight' (as for the keyboard etc) but rather an all-white display i.e. all the pixels are 'on' creating an all-white picture.

BTW a UK source said there were two variations of this display for E90.

Nokia also warns not to handle the product except by the sides, since pressing the screen can damage it. (Despite the protective film I think one does that naturally anyway.)
