Alrighty so here we go. I had a T-Mobile wing, kept it in my pocket like I always have, and how I kept my MDA with me for years. Magically, the screen cracked at the lower left side. What gives? I wasn't contorting my body in odd ways or pressing against the screen, but it destroyed itself. I found the service manual online and will buy a new LCD off ebay, fortunately I had another Wing laying around.

I also have a couple Dashes. One will turn on, screen lights up, windows boot sounds play, but the screen is solid white. Any ideas? I haven't tried reflashing but I didn't see how it would help. Although, I don't know if it's a physical problem since the screen does light up...it just stays white.

The second dash was running unbelievably sluggish and I could not navigate the start menu to format it. I decided to update the firmware to the newest one on T-Mobile's site, which went well, but then when I restarted the phone...it would freeze momentarily at the splash screen/animation, then go to "auto configuring" and when it hit 2% would always turn off. When I restarted the phone, it would give me a BSOD (sweet! didn't know they exist in WM) saying the device was unexpectedly turned off, possibly due to the battery being removed or low power. When I pressed ok (or yes, can't remember), it'd go back to the auto configure and turn off again. I tried a few times, no luck, and tried reflashing but couldn't since it wouldn't load the OS. Oddly, while typing this thread, it fixed itself.

Have you tried a 'hard reset' on the first dash? If you're not getting anything on screen but you are getting the sounds, I do fear it's a hardware problem.

Second dash, again, a hard reset would have been my first course of action.

Sucks about the Wing screen, but pressure must have somehow been applied to the case in that corner?

you can get official manuals at the htc-homepage, and at xda-developers.org forums you can find aservice-manual including a guide, how to dis-assemble and re-assemble the device. (try at own risk)
