LG has released a line of cellular phones that come equipped with a sleek touch-screen LCD display. Since these screens are high-tech and sensitive, they can be prone to damage or scratches. If the touch screen on your LG is damaged, and you don't have the money to take the device to a service technician, you can open up the phone and replace the touch screen yourself.
1. Turn off your LG and slide the back battery door down and off of the device. Lift the battery out of its compartment and use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the four screws located on each corner of the compartment. 2. Use your fingers to remove the back panel from the phone. The green motherboard will be revealed underneath. 3. Unplug the four ribbon cables that connect at the middle of the motherboard. Unplug the antenna cable in the top-right corner of the board. Lift the motherboard out of the phone housing and set it aside. 4. Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws located at the top of the phone housing, then separate the back frame from the front housing of the phone. 5. Lift the damaged LCD screen out of the phone housing. Replace it with a brand-new LCD screen (available from your LG retailer or online) and reassemble your phone in the reverse order you took it apart.
I forget my LG Vu (CU920) was in my pocket and I jumped in the pool. I was in the pool for about 10 minutes before I realized. It was full of water. I took the battery out as soon as I realized it. HERES HOW I FIXED IT!!!!!!!!!
Step 1- I took it home, removed the screws on the back panel, and removed it. Now the entire back casing was off.
Step 2- I put the phone and battery (separate) in a bowl of uncooked rice. Sounds crazy but this absorbs all of the water. I left it in there for 2 days.
Step 3- After 2 days, I put the battery back in and everything turned on. Only problem was there was a big bubble in my LCD screen. I then took the phone apart further by popping of the front casing of the phone. I then try to get underneath the LCD to air it out, but I accidentally broke the LCD screen (inside the phone...not plastic outer screen).
Step 4- I went online and purchased a new LCD screen for around $40 from a cel phone parts website. I got it and installed it which was not too hard. You just have to remove all the visible screws (i believe there are 6) from the back side. Then pop off the front cover and the rest is pretty obvious.
Step 5- Put it all back together and it all worked again!
Step 6- My battery soon died after of all this...Im guessing from the water damage. I bought a new one online for around 20 bucks. Now the phone is good as new.
All in all spent 60 bucks and revived the Vu from water damage!!!!!!!!!
THIS is what everybody else leaves out!!! first open ur phone and there are four sticker pads in the corner, use something with a sharp point to remove. Then use a phillips screw driver to remove the screws. the top with now come off, next there is a ribbon cable from the touch screen to the screen itself, On the connector there is a small plastic lever u will need to flip up in order to release the cable. Use a solder iron to remove the wires and it helps to write down on a paper where they go! do NOT LEAVE THE IRON ON THE WIRES TOO LONG!!!!! just enough to melt the solder and remove the wire, same for putting the new ones on! Next carefully remove the screen, it is held in place by sticky tape, be careful not to crack the cover, just be patience and do it slow! and put the new screen in in reverse order!!!! hope this helps!
caring for the touch screen includes touching the screen with clean and DRY hands., if your phone fell in the water, it will likely damage the touch screen.. contact your nearest LG repair center.. i hope your phone will soon be fine..
Ok after a bit of research I understand that the Lg Prada phone uses a Capacitive touchscreen technology. Wiki this and you will find that the plastic strip attached to the underneath of the front cover of the phone (with its circuit ribbon that connects to the main circuit board of the phone) has a sticky substance holding it air tight to the underside of the front cover. This sticky substance is Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) and conducts a continuous electrical current accross to the sensor. So if you have bought a new cover from ebay etc like I have and replaced the new cover with the old scratched one, you need to get yourself some ITO sputtered onto the screen to make its capacitive touchscreen technology work again.... hope this is a more technical answer than some of the idiots that post unhelpful solutions to questions(solution 1!).
