A few days ago i was in my room and i dropped my motorola v220 phone on the ground and i checked to see if it was ok and it was. well today i was watchin tv and i looked at my motorola v220 phone the background and little bar at the bottom of the screen that says camera and names were all messed up. it did that earlier and all i did that time was press a number and it worked so i did that again but it didnt work. so i cut the phone off and turned it back on to see if that would help and the screen was black!!! everything still works on the phone like i can still dial a phone number and call it but nothing shows up on the screen. i've tried everything and it still wont come on. it hasnt been near any water, i havent dropped it anymore, its just been at my house on the charger. i need help and i really dont want to buy a new phone so please if you can help me :(

I would say it's either your screen or the flex cable that is gone.You need to get it to a qualified repair tech to deal with this issue.These motorola v220 phones are nice little phones but very troublesome.
Put your phone in a bag, put it in the freezer... It will might work until it warms up again..
It might be your screen, it might be the body of the phone...
for the screen...
get a TORX 6 screwdriver
take it apart Google for V220 take apart/ disassembly
WIggle the tiny flex cable connector near the hinge.. still no luck ????
Buy another V220 on ebay
gently take the phone apart and sub in the whole screen shell and front of keypad.
DO NOT TRY TO remove the screen from the body section.. you will destroy to the teeny tiny flex cable.
Still problems? then its the body... your phone is useless undo what you did, re-assemble the parts phone, learn how to flash the spare phone..
USB adapter Motorola P2K drivers for XP Motorola or other flash tools enter phone service mode connect phone to pc flash back to V 364 firmware run unlocker flash unlock firmware enter dummy unlock reflash to v365 firmware
There is some pieces on the board inside your phone you broke off when you dropped it.
It will need to be fixed by a technician. Hopefully you didnt brake the flex cable. Have them check the cable before doing anything else.
