Question about Motorola Mobility V551

3 Answers

All displays gone, yet phone seems to operate normally?

After a call, the screen on my V551 Motorola cell phone locked up. I turned it off, and then back on and now the clock display is blank as well as the screen. It was not dropped or smashed and always in my possesion, meaning no misuse. I tried taking the battery out momentarily, and powered it back up with no change in displays. The back lighting on the number pad stil works, but that is it. Little help?

Re: All displays gone, yet phone seems to operate...

Two possibilities: 1. Broken ribbon cable as already mentioned by others. There are instructions on how to replace this cable elsewhere on the web, but the phone will have to come completely apart. 2. Bad electrical contact on hinge. Display will be intermittent and menu will go back to home when you are trying to press buttons. In this case, spray the hinge with electrical contact cleaner or WD-40. (Be careful to not get any on the plastic screen cover.) Open and closed several times to dislodge any corrosion/dirt.

This just happened to my phone too. I was in the middle of making a call, and the screen just went blank. The keys and everything still work, but neither screen shows anything. If there is anyone out there who knows why this happened and how to fix it, it would be much appreciated.

Re: All displays gone, yet phone seems to operate...

It looks like I have the same problem with my phone. I guess connection with the screen got broken in the hinge...Guys in Cingular store said that they can't fix it. I decided to buy a new phone, but now trying to figure out how to get the address book. I just posted my concern, and will hope someone will give me a suggestion. You might pay attention to it.

How to check if my motorola V551 unlocked

To know whether your mobile locked or unlocked,follow this procedure..Switch on your mobile phone with a sim card from a network other than the network you are currently with. If you are able to use the phone, you can be sure that your phone is not locked. If your phone displays an error message saying "Wrong sim" or "Incorrect sim" or "Emergency calls only", etc., then your phone is probably locked...if you want to unlock it,then contact your provider to get unlock codes or else you can try from online providers..once i got unlock code for my mobile from onlinegsmunlock and unlocked my can too try getting codes for your mobile and get it unlocked safely..but before that check whether unlock codes are available for your country and provider..
