    When I try to turn on the phone, I get only a flash of a jumbled screen that looks like a piece of scribbled modern art. This is the first time it has happened - possibly related to the battery having been fully discharged, then recharged?

    Welcome to the forums.

    Are you sure that your battery has charged okay?

    Impossible to know for sure when it cant be turned on and the opening screen cant be read - but the battery has always charged up to now without problems and I dont think a flat battery would produce this effect

    Yes, a flat battery can darn sure cause that problem.... I have had the same results in years past when allowing a battery to reach ZERO percent.... it is a technical reason, the flat battery prevents enough power to reach the CPU to get it going, therefore, it can't power up the phone.

    I've had this happen with several models and makes of phones. it is an "uh oh" that we should never allow to happen.

    Use a different phone's battery, or get a desk charger.
    Insert a fully charged battery and the phone will power up.

    Nope - it seems that there are cracks in the glass which are visible only when viewed from the right angle (and I wasnt). The local advice (holidaying in Italy) is that the glass isnt worth replacing because a replacement is about same price)!
