Occasional, mystery screen.

Hi folks,

I have a vodafone UK legend. Sometimes when I'm using some functions or just changing something, usually the alarm clock etc a black screen with a Chrome looking htc logo comes on but goes when i push the home button.

I only see it every now and then and I can't seem to find out why or where is comes from. It just appears at random times.

Any ideas?
 
Please do, sounds quite interesting. Hmm.. When your phone starts, does it flash a Vodophone screen? (As most branded phones do..) If so, what colour is the screen?

I've done some checking around online and I can't identify any similar problems... so this is quite interesting.. Also, is your phone insured?

Any ideas?[I have seen this before usually when I have lots of apps to shut down using Taskiller. Don`t think there is nothing to worry about.]

Hi,
Hope this is the place to post my question. Just upgraded to smartphone (vodafone UK) and new in android world incl. this forum. When I make any calls my screen gets dark in about 2 seconds (I suppose some energy saving) and get back my normal screen after hanging up. However if the other party do not answer and it just keeps ringing I cannot stop it, my screen is still dark, no button works, no tapping works. Or if I make a call by mistake I cannot hang it up due to "dead" screen.
Any idea? I would really appreciate it.
Thanks!
