I have seen that so many time on liquid damaged chocoloates. It's called power cycling. unfortunately there is not a whole lot you can do unless you can take the phone apart and clean it with technical spray. That may or may not help.
Another trick I have heard of is putting your phone without the battery in a bowl of rice and putting it on top of the refrigerator for about a week. I heard that works about half of the time though.

The screen on my LG VX8550 (chocolate) doesn't work


Hello,

the screen is not the one that is faulty, but flex.

There is a flex the connects the screen with the phone board. This flex usually worns out as a result of constant open and close of the slide.

Once you have the flex replaced, your screen will display again.

Good luck.
