Question about Motorola Mobility V557 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My displays are black when the phone is on.

I have a V557. Both screens just went black while the phone is on. The phone still rings, keypad still lights up... I made sure the button that goes down when you close it didn't get stuck.

My motorola v557 cell phone doesn't light up. how


Hello,

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 not displaying any picture.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

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 fixed/replaced.

Good luck.

V557 screen went blank


When you power on your mobile phone, is there any light on the keypads oryou hear any sounds?

If yes, then the problem is your Flex wire tape,You will need to replace it and the only way to do that is to bring it to a service center,that is normal to all typrs of slide and flip typr cell phones

Motorola V557 Black Screen


Hello! The blank screen issue with your V557, could be the LCD Module itself or even the connectivity of the cables inside. Usually the interference is the cables within the handset. It garbles the screen to either a black or white color and can sometimes distort the entire display. This can be a definite sign of hardware problems.

Now without a screen to see, how would you able to even use the handset? Your device is indeed an older model and the features that it offers are not vast. It has no expandable memory to store any pics or movies or music and it barely supports blue-tooth.

In my opinion, with the hardware issues u are facing are great enough to prohibit you from using blue-tooth to transfer your media.

Thanks.

Hello. Your mic actually went bad from either liquid damage or a small bump. You need to have the mic either replaced at a motorola service center. Or you can do it yourself. It is quite easy. Just buy the mic from ebay for any old v series motorola phone v300 v400 v500, they are all the same. and just install it yourself. If you dont have a local service center in your area, cant find the part or cant do it yourself, look in my profile and i am sure we can help you out. If you found this helpful, give me a rating!

Display Screen Not Working


I suspect the ribbon wire is the problem. It is the wire that connects the display to the main board where the keypad is. That explains why it would not display. Take your phone to an authorized technician and have its ribbon wire replaced. I hope this helps... ^_^
