Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Change the LCD, new screen is all white !

Hi ! I tried to fix my chocolate vx8500 which had a broken lcd screen...
I swapped the screen, reassembled the phone and now the new screen is all white... I thing it might be the flex ribbon of the screen but I took a look a it and it looked undamaged... Do you think it would be worth ordering a new flex ribbon to see if its the problem ?

I read somewhere for the lg kg800 that : " If you changed Flex or LCD and its still White so you have forgot the YELLOW TAPES underside the LCD (place with small resistors) and over the FLEX which covers it!! If your Tapes are too small and you think it contacts with some Parts of PCB than use a bigger Tape"... So I tried that too (made me figured I had forgot to put the tape over the connection between PCB and LCD) without success...

I dropped my LG Chocolate in water and put it in a bag of rice for 24 hours. Everything works perfectly except the screen, which turns blue when the phone is on. How do I fix this.


If you have insurance on your phone getting it wet will invalidate all warranties and insurance. The only time insurance can be used if the phone is malfunctioning (not from getting wet), or LOST. If your phone is lost, they will give you a brand new one under the insurance policy.

The only piece of a mobile that can go bad when dunked is the LCD screen if it has liquid in it.

1. If you do not want to purchase anything, you can try to remove the lens from the LCD screen and see if any water is between the lens and the lcd. (the lens is the glass that covers the lcd which is usually stuck on with double sided tape.)

2. You can purchase a new lcd and install it.

3. to disassemble the phone follow these instructions:
