Question about Motorola Mobility V551

1 Answer

Everything works but no display

Three days ago, all of a sudden my phone stopped displaying anything, the screen is blank. I can receive calls and make calls, but can't see anything. Can anyone please help me with this, any suggestions as to what I can do. Even the battery is not charging full or may be the battery is discharging completely faster, because I get the low battery signal every other time. I even tried to replace the battery from my wife's cell phone but the screen / display still doesn't work.

Re: Everything works but no display

Ah! My friend. you are lucky that you ask the right person. I have fixed so many V551 with LCD defect so this symtom is usual on v551 and most Motorola Flip phones. As you know, the construction of the LCD cable has been designed by a long ellectric thin wire and one side will connect into the main and CallerID smaller LCD and the other end will connect to the main board and the part in the middle will stuck inside the hinge where the flip will apply a lot of force for the function of open and close. for a long period of usage, it will either worn out the middle part of the cable or loose the connection of either side which cause loosing display. That is why you can call and receive but cannot see anything. The simple thing is open the case and check first at the main board side for any bad contact and tougher the other side is inside the main LCD. If you find both side are still good in connection then the middle part is bad due to flipping so many time of the user in order to open and close. YOU THEN NEED TO REPLACE THE NEW LCD. I have two solutions to help you in this case: 1) View on the link below for the instruction of how to open the housing. Sorry the link is in German but you can look at the picture to follow. 2) Or email me at if you want me to repair the phone for you. I will charge you for only $10.00 for labor fee and $5.00 for shipping. I am sure to make your phne back to normal or your money back. My shipping address is below: JOSEPH DAO P.O. BOX 390307 MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA 94039 USA If you want other way to help, let me know. I am sure you will be happy with your phone back to normal. I hope this help

The display stopped working, Just a white blank screen. The phone still works but the screen does not. Can't see who is calling and can't retrieve pictures.

Hi,blank screen is usually caused by bad screen or flex depending on the type of phone you are using at the moment.
If the phone is a flex phone that means you will need to check both the screen and the flex.(flex makes the screen to display).
When you replace the screen,the phone display will be working again.

Have a nice day.
