SORRY THIS IS SO LONG!-But it may help!
I got the white screen and then the flashing black verizon screen. The tech help person on the phone told me to check for moisture damage. Take off the battery. Look for two dots. One on the battery and one above the metal connecting prongs on the back of the phone. They are paper stickers. If there is no damage--the dots will be perfectly white with small purple/red x's on it. If there is damage--the dots will be a solid color(purple/red) or a faded pink color(that's what mine looked like). The tech suggested I let my phone sit in a sealed container overnight with dry rice to draw the moisture from the circuitry(I'm trying that tonight). If that doesn't work(or you don't have a moisture problem), I read that you can try to have the firmware reinstalled at a store. She said it would take 40 minutes for them to do and it is FREE and that could do the trick. The sales clerk at he store FAILED to tell me about the option of reinstalling the firmware. NOT HAPPY with him! I found that out on the web. Poor customer service. He just wanted me to buy a new phone, but like everyone, I have irreplaceable numbers trapped in there! and I LOVE MY LG vx8500!! Good Luck!

first you should restart your phone.if you still have same problem means there must be fault in display screen.you should change the display screen of your mobile.but make sure that you should go to your company service.because there are local salesmen they will change old displays .just change the display screen of your mobile

My screen went out


The problem you are describing is a somewhat common issue with the LG VX-8500...you can try removing the battery from the phone while the phone is still on. This is known as a "hard reset" and can sometimes resolve phone "glitch" issues. However, the Chocolate with the blank screen is often something that simply means the phone needs to be replaced. Check with your provider on whether your phone is covered by manufacturer warranty or not. If not, it may be time to consider upgrading your phone, or if you have phone insurance, filing a claim and getting a refurbished Chocolate.

Blank screen LG CHOCOLATE VX8500


I answer this in a previous post.

Blank screens were a common problem. LG found a new manufacturer for their screens and it's no longer the case.

Go to your verizon corp store and see about replacements .. If they have a UME36 transfer machine then they MAY be able to save your pix and videos

LG VX8600 SCREEN WENT BLANK, PLZ HELP!!!


m8 sounds like your screen is faulty or your ribbon has been damaged in some way.to fix it you will need to open it and have a look at the ribbon if there is any damage vissible no matter how small it means ur ribbon is gone an you need a new 1.it could also be your screen if there isnt any damage on the ribbon then it could be the screen.it could be a combination of both. word of caution: if you try to open it yourself you could damage the ribbon.you wont notice it but its very easy to do.so be carefull. but if you want an expert to do it for try these guys http://www.mobilephoneservicecentre.co.uk/ good luck
