Nokia 6500 classic

Hi there guys,

Just wanting some good advice on this phone please, it is my mothers phone and she told me that that the screen just went blank so she has not used it for about 2 weeks, charged it up for a bit and managed to get it sort of working, backlight comes on and the display works, the nokia start up sound, can call out and receive calls, button sounds work.

I have updated the firmware as it had 4.84 on so now has 9.45, allowed me to do this all through the computer.... the strange thing is the display looks funny at times and the colours change and the display seems to be upside down, has difficulty going through menus.

My mother did say that it did not hold charge very well and had to charge it up all the time, it has not been dropped and no screen damage and no water damage....... could this be due to the battery being pretty much knackered, phone is just over a year old.

Any pointers would be a great help, I am just tempted to try a new battery and see if that solves the problem, thanks ;-)

Take it to a repair shop, it sounds it is not too damaged and should be able to be fixed. Most places souldn't charge you if they cannot fix it so you have got nothing to lose. Give it a go, its a good phone so its worth it.

Sounds like the screen is on its way out but I may be wrong.
