Lumia 720 screen blackout

My 720 had an issue with the headphones ... due to a loose connection, sound would be there only in one ear piece ... took it for repair at a Nokia Care Centre ... they fixed the head phone issue but created a screen dead issue ...

Once in a while ... the screen would go dead ... it would take me atleast 10 to 15 presses of the power button to get the screen back on ... this happens atleast 5 or 6 times a day ... and at a time when this problem is occuring, when the phone switches on ... when i go to the settings > glance ... its blank ... no choices or options are there ... however after a restart if my glance is working fine , then the screen blackout doesnt happen !!!

Just in 72hrs Lumia 720 is dead !!
I plugged in the charger yesterday and its boom. There were atleast 5 people at Nokia care for similar or different issuses with Lumia 720.
However they refused to replace the device after a lot of argument. Then I went to the shop from where I bought it as he promised me to replace it with in 5 days.
Now, waiting for the new device. As it comes I am going to sell it to the shop owner or in OLx.
I bought this phone with a lot of expections from NOKIA and TRUST for quality. I am DONE !! They don't deserve it.

Good bye MS and NOKIA

Thank Lord! It's working.

My Phone was totally blacked out, and for the moment, I had all the volumes to zero. It won't even ring.

> I tried to go for the soft reset.
> Volume Low + Power
> Then it did vibrate and my phone finally started working.

Thank you! :crying:
