there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is not displaying any picture.
The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.
I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.
If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.
your were flip phone,flip phone must have a ribbon inside.
if it spoil,will made it no diaplay,speaker hearing pro and front display pro.
so,your pro may the ribbon spoil already.pls send for technician for repair.
If u have a Razor (As shown in the picture), If the mini Screen Works(When you close the phone) then then make sure the push down button((Turns off the main screen when you flip the phone closed) is not pushed down while the phone is open.
You need to replace the flex cable. It's the cable that connects the circuit board (under the numbers) to your screen. It runs through the bend in your phone so as you can imagine it takes alot of abuse. I had the same problem with my w490. I couldn't find another phone in my price range that I liked so I decided to fix the 490 myself. The cable was $7 on ebay and the small star screw driver was $6 (T3 - T6) at Lowe's. I used a plastic knife in place of the special cell phone tool. Doing it myself was challenging. It took me about an hour because I had to figure out how to take the phone apart, replace the cable then reassemble it while defending all the parts and pieces from my 15 month old. Now my phone works fine. No more white screen or having to turn it on or off several times.
i'm so pissed i am in the exact same situation. i've only had my phone since late may, and haven't had too many problems with it. then last week it all began. i would set the phone down for a while, and whenever i would go to flip it open the screen would be either black or white. i then have to press a bunch of numbers or turn my phone off entirely to get it going again. yeah it's a piece of ****. ii've heard a lot of motorola phones have this problem. i'm going to take mine in and see if i can get a replacement. i also heard this just happens with a lot of flip phones, but i don't want to spend the $200 or so on a sidekick. blah. sorry i'm not much help, but i just wanted to let you know you're not alone.
found the solution to the white screen! it's the flip sensor.. what you have to do is open the phone hard and fast... make it so when you flip it open, the sensor knows when to turn the screen on and off.. this may take up to 5 or more times.. jus keep opening it hard and it will eventually work!!!
