Screen wont work

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 :(

Re: screen wont work

If you have a dead screen: You must Disconnect the ribbon cable between main case and LCD screen. be carefull lifting the connector and put it back in place. To reach the ribbon cable, you have to disassembly the phone. Google search with 'Motorola V220 Full Housing Installation' for a detailed procedure with pictures. attention: It may void any waranty!!

Blank screen on Motorola V220 - nothing working.

The battery that you say is OK may actually be dead. Also, if the phone was unused for some time a discharged battery may have affected the phone

Motorola V220 - no backlight

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.

Just bought motorola v220

If the battery is charged, you should just need to hold down the red (end call) key for a few seconds and the phone should power up.

Screen turn Black

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

More details googling above and reading lots

OR.. Pay $10-20 have someone else do it...

I wont, too much work...

Phone does not work properly

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.
