Question about Cell Phones
Power down, power up fixes temporarily. Updates current
SOURCE: Motorola W490 Display issue
I have the exact same problem. I figure it's cuz I was always flipping my phone open and closed that I wore out the cable.
BUT. I figured out how to fix this. It's sort of annoying though, and you'll have to do it everytime you open/close the screen, but if you can't afford a new cell right now (like me) this is probably the best solution.
So I figured since it takes the phone a long time to recognize/react to it being opened or closed, I should probably give it a little more time to do so. SO, instead of just flipping the phone open or closed instantly, do it very slowly, inch by inch until it's fully opened/closed, and then voila, the screen'll display without you getting a stupid white/black screen! (but...yeah, it's sort of a hassle, so I suggest you get it repaired or buy a new phone).

I had the same problem. I removed the 4 screws from the display part of the phone (under the little rubber circles), then pried it apart. After it was all apart I simply unplugged the ribbon cable for the display, blew it off and reconnected it. After reassembling, I put the sim card and battery back in and turned it on. I don't know how long it's going to work for, but I was at least able to copy my contacts to the sim card.
