Broken phone, exposed wires, screen out, cannot see contacts
Left hinge and corner of phone broken after serious accident involving a cow and a barbed wire fence...... anyhow:
Exposed wire/chip/curved peice of foil. I opened the phone, the screen went solid white, then out. Is there a way I can transfer contact info from this phone memory, not SIM memory?
We can transfer pics from phone to pc using cable, can I access my phone memory from pc using cable and/or driver/software?

When this happens it can be caused from a couple of things; I would recommend that you hard shock the device. You can do this by removing the battery while the device is powered on, leave it out for a minute, then reinstall the battery, and power the handset up. If this does not resolve your issue, then you are looking at a more serious handset issue.
Need not worry, if you want to fix the screen the open its body.. Try it gently,it will come out else try a little force but don't be hard as it can break. Now take the screen and apply a little glue on the corners and paste it. Now place it and let it dry,.. After drying re place the body cover and your phone will be ready to use.
I don't see a problem statement here that needs a solution by someone else.
Broken hinges on LG VX-8350 are notorious failure mode for this model. You may be able to find and obtain a water-damaged phone for small money and transplant only the keypad shell body (the broken hinge part) to your phone. To separate the keypad and screen shells on the good body unit, look here:
The Phone needs a new Keypad flex and most likely a left hinge pin. When the phone is open, the cable runs through the left side of the hinge. It is very common for the hinge pin to become chipped and put a small cut in the Flex Cable.
You can get the parts on ebay. search for motorola v3 keypad flex, and motorola v3 hinge, or knuckle.
Open your phone and look at the hinges, while you are looking at the black screen it is the hinge on your left. Inside that hinge is a small wire, this wire is no longer connected. Remove your battery and look for 4 small screws, remove these screws and carefully open the casing. You should be able to find the wire, it will be a challenge to put it back together. Good luck
I have a similar issue...left side hinge pin came out...found it in my pocket and attempted to put it in place and then the screen went blank...no luck...but I was able to take the motorola phone toola and retrieve the data, names, etc and move to another motorrola phone I have. A few days later I found a small wire clip thing that must ground or contact something in the hinge...no luck yet fixing it. Help
the problem your having is caused by a ribbon that connects the screen and the mainboard in the phone.
the ribbon seems to have either come loose or detached.other than that being a problem it will almost certainly be a screen issue where the lcd has burnt out.
but in my professional opinion it will almost certainly be a ribbon issue
Had the same problem/same symptoms, just after it started to get stiff in the hinge and make the sound of wires being "crinkled." When I inspected it closely, I could see that the left hinge has excessive play, i.e., it's loose. I expect to remove the screen and find that the hinge/connector assembly went bad, put stress on some of the wires (or allowed enough play for a connector to lose firm contact), and killed the video. I replaced mine, used Motorola Mobile Phone Tools software to pull off all the data, and let it be. Best of luck.
It looks like I have the same problem with my phone. I guess connection with the screen got broken in the hinge...Guys in Cingular store said that they can't fix it. I decided to buy a new phone, but now trying to figure out how to get the address book. I just posted my concern, and will hope someone will give me a suggestion. You might pay attention to it.
