Hello,

Maybe someone has experienced similliar issue, that phones screen is totally gray?

Everything works, except i can't see whats happening on the screen, unless i push the middle of the screen with a little force then i can see what i have opened on the screen, but it just lasts a few seconds and the image is frozen afterwards and then goes slowly gray.
Phone model - gsmart guru g1 (gigabyte)

Sounds like a LCD or other failure.

Check the manual for resets but given the price I saw on the web for this phone I'd ask the maker for a repair estimate.

Probably it will cost half or even more than it is worth to repair the phone Grin

Just was quite curious if there is anything i can do myself to repair it, as it doesn't seem to be too complicated to change lcd screen if its the right problem.

It could be screen, connection or main board. Most models don't have a cable to replace but since pressing on it seems to bring it back, screen is suspect. Ask others what they think.

-> Strange you write "cost half". That is, to fix it costs half of new? Sounds like it's worth it.
