    ... keep us posted on if your replacement worked or if it gave you the white screen of death.
    What white screen of death?
    It sounds like what I got after I tried to fix my trackball.
    See my post here post #60.

    Hi JoJo I just read your post about your screen being white after taking apart your Bold. That is the exact same thing that happened to me. I thought I might have broke the screen since I accidentally pulled hard on the ribbon connecting the screen to the mother board. After I connected everything my screen just turned white and then wouldn't change. I could make calls and hear when I got a instant message or text message. I was so upset. I'm not sure if my phrasing the white screen of death is accurate since it's probably not like the blue screen of death on a windows OS but for my case that's the only way I could think to describe it since that's what it felt like. Like my phone had died. I hope you get your phone back up and running. Best of luck.

    I would have never tried to take off the lens if someone didn't sell it. Which brings to questions, if you cannot remove the lens why sell it? Hindsight is 20/20 indeed.

    In the end I was able to repaired my phone and I even learned more about the internals of the Bold than I knew before. And by posting this thread hopefully it will help others and avoid having the same thing happen to them.

    Bumping this thread, as my Blackberry just met the same fate as yours. Wish I would have checked the forums out first. Why do they sell lenses if you can't replace them? Argh.

    Waiting on my new LCD to arrive, hopefully by Wednesday. Back to ghetto Nokia for the weekend!

    Glad you got it fixed, but those pics are PAINFUL.

    I'm dreading the day when my trackball needs cleaning on my Bold, and I'm enough of a techie to know how to use a soldering iron. I hope it stays clean better than my Pearl.
