    Hi guys,

    Sometimes when I press power on button on my HTC desire nothing else
    but back-light for keys lights up. Screen stays blank.
    All that needs to be done is a tap on back of the phone (~2cm above "WITH HTC SENSE") and screen goes on. Sometimes I squeeze it a little or twist it on opposite corners and it goes on. Seems that there is a loose connection somewhere inside.
    I am not sure if I should try to open it. I don't have any warranty anymore.

    Anybody had this issue before?


    Mind you it is almost 6 month I have it, but I usually keep it in my jeans in front pocket and it probably bends a little and gets squeezed ever so slightly...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks guys!

    Janis

    I would like to know as well as I have similar problems but more likely to happen approx 60-65% battery life

    Well in my case it happens/can happen any time. in fact, I can twist it a little and screen will go black, then twist it again and it will go on again. Certainly feels like loose connection somewhere. Question is - where?

    Why not, did you take it to a non HTC service centre to get something replaced?

    I hope someone can help. My screen turns on as its boots up albeit all grain and then when it's ready to go. Screen goes black. But when I squeeze it on the edges it comes back just fine. Anyone else have this problem? Is it just a screw that needs tightening? I miss my tablet.:(

    Pretty much the same problem here: the backlight can turn off any time (even on 98% of charge). This affects only blacklight of the screen: haptic icons at the bottom keep shining. I can see what happens on the screen if I take the phone under some bright light source (e.g., lamp).

    Indeed, this is a connection problem somewhere, but I'm not sure where. Squeezing the corners of the phone a bit usually helps and the backlight turns on. Can turn on after random pressing on/off button.

    However, usually it does not happen when the phone is connected to the charger - which is strange. I think that the problem might be in the battery cover - maybe it is a bit loose and the power is just insufficient for the backlight to shine?!
