Blank White Screen with Black Dot

Okay, well I just got home and I used my phone not less than 20 minutes ago. I looked at it and it was just a plain white screen and on the bottom right handed side, there's this black spot (With a semi-visible line through it) and it doesn't do anything unless I take the battery out. I tried removing the battery, but then when I try to put the battery back in and turn my phone on, it goes back to the white screen/black dot.

    I have had the same problem with 4 seperate LG rumors. the only thing that you can do is send them back to LG for a new (refurbished) one.

You can have the phone reflash to correct this problem or just take it into your provider and have them look at it for you.

Phone has a black dot with a purple squiggle thru it, and there are vertical rainbow lines on the left side of the screen. the majority of the screen is white/blank

I hate to tell you but your screen is busted, there is no way to fix it.

White "press dot" screen

The actual answer is to press the dots, but use a dull plastic tool that fits "within" the dot. Otherwise the width of your finger is too imprecise to calibrate the dots and screen.

Hope you, and others, get this and try it. It works. I just discovered it and did it, successfully after only about 10 presses.

White Screen

The "White Screen of Death" was a problem plaguing the TomTom One V3 about a year ago. This was brought up in another FixYa thread here-

As the solution suggests, call the manufacturer and you can easily have it fixed/replaced
