I've recently purchased a Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo off eBay and for the first few days it was working fine. However, a few days ago the screen just stopped working in the middle of use. The backlight works and when it is locked I can feel it vibrate when I unlock it and it still makes sounds so the phone itself is still working, but the screen is not displaying.
Its been like it for about a week, until just now I gave it a bit of a bang and it came back again. I thought it was fixed, but after I took the battery out and put it back in again the screen is not displaying again.
Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it? I bought it on ebay so I don't have the warranty to get it fixed for free, and sony will charge £70 for it to be repaired because it's to do with the screen. I understand if it needed a new screen but since I found out today it still works, I assume its just a loose connection and i'm not paying that money for a fix.
Thanks for any suggestions guys!
