Did you dry the phone completely? Sometimes there is water trapped inside. Here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

My motorola v557 cell phone doesn't light up. how


Hello,

there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is not displaying any picture.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.

Good luck.

V557 screen went blank


When you power on your mobile phone, is there any light on the keypads oryou hear any sounds?

If yes, then the problem is your Flex wire tape,You will need to replace it and the only way to do that is to bring it to a service center,that is normal to all typrs of slide and flip typr cell phones

Change lightbubl V557


I am sorry to say that it is not a lightbulb. It is a LED screen you have blown a circuit not a bulb. You can replace the screen, but it is not cost effictient. You are lucky the phone works at all. You must have done the smart thing and took the battery out. If you did, good job, smart thinking.. Sorry my friend..

Please give good ratings, they are really important to me

Motorola V557 Black Screen


Hello! The blank screen issue with your V557, could be the LCD Module itself or even the connectivity of the cables inside. Usually the interference is the cables within the handset. It garbles the screen to either a black or white color and can sometimes distort the entire display. This can be a definite sign of hardware problems.

Now without a screen to see, how would you able to even use the handset? Your device is indeed an older model and the features that it offers are not vast. It has no expandable memory to store any pics or movies or music and it barely supports blue-tooth.

In my opinion, with the hardware issues u are facing are great enough to prohibit you from using blue-tooth to transfer your media.

Thanks.

My motorola v557 has water damage. I've let it dry out several days and the keys will light up but the screen will not. Is it completely ruined?


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.
