Question about LG RUMOR Cellular Phone

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.

My iphone screen is black, no response from touchscreen or home or lock button. When you call the number there is no voulme but to the caller the phone is ringing. Any suggestions what the problem m

first thing I'd have you do is plug it in and see if you get a charging display on the screen. If you still don't see anything at all hold the home button and sleep/wake button for about 20 seconds. Many times this is all it takes. If it is just a software issue you should see the screen go white with a black apple. There was an issue with the 4 in the past (mine had this as well) where at 50% charge it locked completely. This did the trick. Let me know if this doesn't work and I'll give you some more possible steps. Where did you get the phone and what carrier?

When a phone screen is blank, has a white screen, etc, there are three things that could be the cause;

  1. Bad/defective screen and the solution is screen replacement
  2. Software/Virus problem and solution is to flash the phone
  3. Flex problem and solution is to change the flex. In some cases the flex might have shifted or not in it's right position, in this case, just fix the flex back properly and all will be well.

Bad/defective screen:

If your phone is having a white screen, first thing to do is dismantle the phone carefully, check if the screen is properly fixed to the phone board, also check if screen flex is intact. Once you've confirmed that all these are okay and screen is not still coming up, then it means your screen is bad. You can go ahead and replace the screen.

Make sure you confirm the screen is bad before you do any replacement.


Sometimes software/virus problem on phones are mistaken to screen problem. When a screen is white or blank, sometimes it's a virus problem. To further confirm, turn on the phone, wait for about 2 minutes when you know the phone must have booted fully, then use another phone to call the phone with white or blank screen. If the phone rings, it means it's not a virus problem, but if it doesn't ring, it means it's a software/virus problem.

If you discover your phone has a virus problem, you will have to flash the phone for it to display again,

Flex problem

When your phone screen is blank, white, has horizontal/vertical lines, turn images up-side-down, etc, be calm, 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 acting like any of the mentioned problem.

This is usually common with flip and slide phones. The flex worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone. Samsung and Motorola phones mostly have this kind of problems.

Replacing the flex is the only solution to this problem. 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 replaced.

Good luck.
