    sounds like a bad display, I would contact VZW and have them warranty the device.

    I had a similar problem as my bricked my phone bad on OS 5.0. As I downgraded I had the same issue. Here is what I did to resolve it.

    1. Wiped the phone clean with either BBSAK or JL Commander
    2. Reinstall .148

    This resolved the issue for me.

    And Joe if you can find the options icon, do a security wipe but going into options, security, BB button and then wipe.

    So you say that you have a list of the screens that might fit your device?

    Can you list out the part#'s?

    While you are doing that, I'll try to find a parts breakdown list.

    Joe I would recommend checking out horizonwireless.com

    That's where a lot of people have their phones fixed and they will make sure you get the right screen.

    That just happened to my phone. If you squeeze it or twist the phone slightly does the screen turn on? I brought mine back to VZW and they replaced it.

    I think the OP is out of the States blachance. May not want to send it back to the mainland. I don't know if VZW is in South America.

    That is what I would do though, I would have mine back in a flash.
