    Same deal, sounds like a common issue, another interesting point, when my phone is on the charger and I try to use it, it shocks me through the case. No lie it is very painful.

    I have the same problem.  I talked to my cousin a few weeks ago and she warned me that samsung slider phones do this and that it would be easier to just get a new phone.  Well, it seems she was right, soon after that talk with her, my screen started going white, taking the battery out and putting it back in used to work, now it doesnt even work after you take the battery out and put it back in.

    This happened to me twice and they said it was water damage but I'm not sure. I read online and they said that its because you text to much. I had this phone twice and the same problem.

SOURCE: no power to samsung sgh d500

try a new battery if that does not work take the phone to a mobile service center close to you and have them try to fix it for you.

Why does the screen on my Samsung M520 turn white?


the problem comes from the led film behind the screen. There is absolutly nothing you can do about it now. When you got your fingers all over the screen by sliding it, it starts to break. It isn't going to get better, probably only going to get worse. the only thing that you can do is buy anotherone im afraid

Screen gets distorted and turns white


Hi,

The part that is bad is the Ribbon flex cable that geos from the main board to the LCD board. Over time the cable becomes chaffed and will lose continuity between the traces. It can be fixed with

Tessco Part #: GH97-07715A

It does need to be soldered on the LCD side.
