Tip & How-To about Motorola Mobility V500 Cellular Phone

Trouble viewing my screen

Every time I flip open my phone to use it or answer a call the screen stays black just like it does not realize that I flipped it open. In order to use my phone I have to push the buttons near the top of the phone by the menu button repeatedly to get the phone to realize that it has been flipped open, also my charger port is acting funny too I plug in my cable to charge it and it does not realize that a cable has been plugged in. I have to literally bend the cable around different ways for the phone to realize that it is plugged in to the charger... Please help!!!!!!!

Goto Menu then Profiles you see a red dot on General. Press options on lower left of screen and Edit. scroll down to Flip Beep and click it then scroll to Silence and press Select on lower left of screen. It worked for me.

Phone doesn't answer when flipped open


The phone did not answer when flip up because you did not activate it.

To activate go to call, go to answer by flip and click yes.
Any time a call come in and you flip it will answer.

The screen on my Pantech Impact is black..i can make calls, text, listenin to music, & stuff thanks to the touch screen part of the phone. But when i flip it open the screen is black. So i cant take pictures or go on the web. Ive tried taking the battery out/turning my phone off for several hours. & sometimes,when i turn it on,the screen is back to normal. but as soon as I close it, & flip it open again,the screen goes black. So what can i do to solve this problem? Can i solve this problem without taking it to get repaired? Please answer as soon as possible! Please & Thanks for taking the time to read this. & for replying (if you do). Thanks so much!


The problem with your phone is just flex problem, the flex on the screen of your phone is weak or worn out, this is a common problem among slide or flip phone.

What you need to do is to replace the flex on the screen of your phone, you can get this done by going to any local phone repairer within your vicinity to help get it fix or replace.

Once the flex is replace, your phone display problem is solve and the screen will start displaying.

Take care.
