Just got the white screen fault today after 14 months. My inner screen has now completely died so can't do much accept answer calls. If so many people have suffered the SAME problem than this is obviously a design defect which Samsung is responsible for. God knows how much the technician will charge to fix this :(
Stacey ring samsung up and they'l send u to a repair centre if the phone is under warranty its for free if not then its heaps pricey and ure probably better off getting something else.
Guys any1 out there looking into buy this phone i advise u NOT TO. Everyone is having the same problems i bought the fone and after 10 mnths same problem white screen and preview error wen using the camera i took it into the samsumg repair centre and got it fixed now im selling iT. STICK TO NOKIA GUYS ANY NOKIA PHONE IS MORE RELIABLE THEN SAMSUNG!!
im having the same problem as every 1 else, except i cant even see the screen now its just blank n can get my numbers out of the stupid fone. its like it had a few black outs n now its blind. has any one got a clue what i can do.
I've bought this phone about10 months ago. at start it really seem as a nice phone but 4 months after i started using it there were some problems. like the LCD .it started going white + that is really annoying. tehn i could not get a picture using its camera coz of the prevew error. now the screen is nearly always white +i cant get a picture. if any of u r interested of buying this phone DO NOT.because samsung SUCKS

Three months out of warranty (15 mths old) my screen went white - there were no warning signs. I had it charging one night, then opened it the next morning and it had turned into a paperweight. Luckily my 5-year-old Nokia was still working...
No warranty, so I opened it up and discovered the cabling had become worn - it's just not good enough. No more Samsung for me!
Hey guys wats all this am hearing abt the phone and I was planning to but it! Thanx for the warning...
About the white of flashing rainbow screen, turning all black few days later....:
I've got the problem after 14 months of fine operation: pity, out of warrantee said the man, too expensive to repair, know the problem, but no move at all to a coulant solution. I opened (with some problems) the phone and noticed a broken strip in the multilayer flex connection between bottom and lid. (the lowest layer, just one strip, obvously a ground connector ((;-) mobile phone)and repaired it with a thin bypass and some solder. After assy the screen was all white, so I'd solver\d some but not all problems. Checked again and found minor cracks in all conductors of the flex (in total I'd gess 25% of some 60 leads and stopped the opertation.
I'm very disappointed that Samsung is not willing to solve this problem at split cost, as it's obviously a design failure of a 1 cent strip. For me no Samsung anymore!
(btw: in some countries it's illegal to limit the warrantee to a time period, much shorter than one may reasonably expect (it is in NL, the shop servant recognised, but simply invited me to go to court to get my rights!
Hi guys.. i've just bought the E700 and i was wandering how the infrared was working.. I know it's not compatible with Nokias.. But how do I send pictures from my phone via infrared?? Please help!! Lokke1205@hotmail.com
if your screen turns white you have to bend the screen towards you, app 90 degrees, then the screen will work again, then navigate to the display menu and select a other background, for example bananas.. close the phone and open it again and it will work again. you will have to do this after every time the phone is switched off. good luck!
I have been using the mobile for over a year and a half.
Four months ago in camera mode the camera screen initally went all black so i was unable to use any camera at all. Okay I can live with that, after all it's a nice phone.
Two weeks ago, I've suffered the white screen affect. It has now become unuseable. It's like walking around with a home phone with no LCD display.
Gonna try and get the screen fixed and ebay it off to make some money off it. Good luck to whoever buys my phone :)
had exactly the same problems as you guys, screen goes white, green, then can't read anything. i rarely get the normal display now, and it is impossible to use. i e-mailed Samsung, and they were unwilling to co-operate as it is just over a year old. disgusting as it must be a manufacturing fault. what did you guys do next? buy a new phone?
this phone is rubbish i called to cancel my contract and the screen went greeny white the next day i did have it for under a year but id advise anyone who wants to by this not to buy it RUBBISH
Hi, I need someone to tell me where to find cheapest LCD screens??? They are expensive and hard to find on ebay. Thanks!
Is this possible that this phone is so bad?? I would like to buy this one but i cannot belive that this problems are so serious!
Can anyone who had problems with this phone (problems with display and camera)to write down the date of production of his phone. Maybe the problem is only in some series of this phone!
This Phone really sucks.Preview eror camera and the screen is almost white.What is next.I think he will be brought to a stand.
Ive had the phone for probably over a year now. And firstly the camera displayed a msg saying Preview error and turned green, and now the camera function doesnt work at all. Then later on the screen slowly went white. After a few weeks it went white all the time when i flipped it open, and i had to turn it off and on to work.. AND now the screen doesnt work at all... so i cant view msges NOTHING at all!!! so once u start getting a white screen, i highly recommend u get it fixed straight away!! all my numbers were saved to the phone and these very important numbers which ive been holdin on to for 5 years or more! and the e700 does not have a function to copy phone memory to sim at all!
useless phone! looks good but is shocking!! i dont think my warranty can cover it coz its been just over a year! haha just remember, dont judge a book by its cover!
I cant rely on Samsungs anymore, its caused me a lot of trouble and i think i'll stick to the trustworthy and original phone NOKIA!
