Ok, last night I decided to swap out the G2 screen protector. I always carefully unscrew the panel and insert hte screen protector from there, and there have been no problems.

After swaping out the screen protector the C700 doesnt want to start anymore! :cry:

I think I killed the display.. but how?? I've done this procedure before without problems...

please help!! sad.gif

Do you have a local friendly repair shop?

If it is only the baklight that is screwed it may be a simple repair.

The main problems with repairing modern electronic devices is getting hold of custom ic's and manuals.

If the backlight has gone south, then they may be able to substitute it with a simillar unit.

My local friendly repair shop does not charge if they cannot fix something within a reasonable cost, if they can fix it it is a minimum of £25 (about $40)

From what I have read, the sharp repair service is pretty good, but will not ship to/from places outside of Japan.

Sharp USA will not get involved or offer to help you, fortunately faults on these units seem to be very few and far between.

If all else fails, you may get a reasonable offer on ebay from somebody who has toasted the cpu but has a working backlight.

Again, this is a rare problem so advice will be hard to find.
