White (TREO) Screen of death?

So, I get the white screen, tried soft/hard reset, tried NapaBoth.nb0, still get the white screen.
Since it's out of warranty, I can't get a swap.
Took it apart, thinking something was askew...everything looked fine.
No water damage or anything.
I basically have been very gentle with this phone. Now it seems useless.

Any ideas, suggestions or guidance on how to fix it would be appreciated.

Well the white screen is usually a very bad and permanent situation. However, what were you doing right before the screen came up?

Well my only advice at this point would be to take the battery out for about 30 mins. Reinstall the battery. If you still get the white screen try one more hard reset. If you still get the white screen then you are out of a phone.

Coz
