White Screen- Not water damage

My screen is white and won't come back on. A few weeks ago, the same thing happened because I spilled water on it, but it started working a few days later. This time I noticed it stopped working when I removed it from my purse. Are there any other reasons besides water damage that the screen would stay white!?

Re: White Screen- Not water damage

Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.

This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Screen goes white all the time

There might be a problem with the LCD of the phone, you need to have it checked with a technician. I'm not sure if the phone got damaged due to direct heat of sun light. The phone's LCD is also sensitive and can only take mild heat. Might as well take it to a local techinician and have them evaluate the phone's LCD for you.

I have a red bar across my screen reading downloading non-stop.

if you can still access the menu on the phone, you can try to reset it. But if not, it only means that the incident happened on your phone damaged the mother board on it, the reason why it's having this malfunction.

My phone always turns off. and the screen always turn white. but when it goes back to normal, the screen has no cracks. but after a couple of seconds, it turns white again

water damage. If you have a young child or dropped it on the bathroom floor after showering or even outside humidity can do that. Heat is also another thing that can do it. Or simply just dropping it.

the only possible thing you could do yourself is to remove the screws, pull it apart and try to blow dry. That's the only thing you can personally do.

Can you see water inside the LCD? if you can have a professional clean it out for you. If not, try replacing your battery because if it somehow got wet too then water does more damage to the battery than the rest of the phone. if it's still not working reply here and I'll help further
