Why did my HTC Wildfire screen go blank?

The screen shows nothing, but the text light is still flashing, the touch buttons are vibrating, but nothing is happening. Anyone had this problem?

What were you doing before that happened? Is it rooted? Take out the battery, wait 5 minutes, put it in again and reboot.

Not rooted, and was just using the phone normally. Removing the battery semms to have cured it... for now.

I've had this problem too, I rang 3 they replaced the phone in january now my new one has just done exactly the same thing.

im going to take a wild guess and imagine you have turned the brightness setting down to min to save battery.

had the same "fault" on my handset, lock handset unlock no screen just dark. Battery off then back on worked no problem turn the brightness back up a notch or two and should find problem sorted (useful glitch if you want a new handset though as im sure most places will be flumexed by this)

I had the same problem and I waa gettin really worried. I tried everything and last thing I tried was I went on my brighness settings and put the brighness on the fullest brighness there i. Then I went back to the home page and then locked my phone. I then clicked the unlock button and the screen came abck on. RESULT !! :D

I also encountered the same problem. When I tried to turn on the unit, it vibrates but nothing goes on the screen. I tried to ask a local technician and told me that they're gonna perform a re-programming of the unit, I think they got a point but I was reluctant to do so. Before I do, would someone tell me that is it really appropriate?

It seems there are different causes for similar faults... How old is your device? And when did the error show its ugly head first?
