HI Max,

Have you check out this forum?  https://community.verizonwireless.com/message/871226#871226

No solution. But if your up for it, you can disassemble and see if its a loose cable in phone.

My phone was doing the same thing and went totally black. If you shine a flashlight on it you can still see the screen, so that makes me think its either a bad inverter, bad bulb, loose cable or possibly a bad solder. I tend to think its a cable issue. I have not had the time to take disassemble my phone yet, but I plan to.

Oh no Max_S, that's no fun!  I suggest trying to complete a reset by following the visuals here http://bit.ly/QRmnnN .  If you are unable to do so or unsuccessful you will need to look into replacement options.  The device is not covered under warranty however.  Are you eligible for an upgrade?  Please dial #UPG send to receive a free text with your upgrade date.  Please share.  Thank you!
