Dear Confused,

Sorry to hear about your phone screen.

There is only one way to make your screen look better, but it will not "fix" the crack. I have done this and sometimes i cannot even tell my screen is still cracked and i didnt have to pay Apple $350 for a new piece of glass.

Here is what you can try:

1. Go to a auto parts store and buy a "Winshield repair kit" for small rock chips that look like a bullseye style chip.

2. CAREFULLY CLEAN THE GLASS WITH ALCOHOL and let dry for 10 minutes. Then heat up the glass of your phone with a hair drier for about 2 minutes so its hot, but not too hot to handle.

3. Then very, very slowly and cautiously, cut the tip of the nipple on the "epoxy/resin" bottle they have in the repair pack and while the phone glass is still hot (you may want to cut the tip of the bottle first, then heat up your phone), gentle squeeze the clear resin into and along the crack in your phones glass....Squeeze the resin directly along the entire length of the crack while attempting to squeeze it INTO THE CRACK...its diffucult, however, the heated glass will **** in the cool resin and actually fill in the crack.

Make sure not to get the resin on the phone or your skin!!!

AND BE PATIENT WHEN applying it.

ALSO, try to do this on a sunny day, because you have to place the glass in direct sunlight, or under a UV light to allow the epoxy/resin to cure. IT WILL NOT WORK UNDER A NORMAL LIGHT BULB. SUNLIGHT Actually works best.

Leave it in the sunlight for at least 1 hour or longer. Then wait another 24hrs before taking a razor blade to scrap off the excess resin that has built up on the glass.

FYI, it the crack to too deep the epoxy will seep thru the glass and this process wont work.

However, if your lucky this should be what your looking for!

Good luck and let me know how it goes!

THanks,

Mark

    Hi the outside screen of my Sony ericsson has been cracked because someone stepped on my bag. I have found information on the net about replacing the lcd screen, but nothing about the outside screen. Does...


    Hi avisenis yes you can replace the screen the only problem with the lcd screens is that they tend to led to other problems. so if you have insurance you may want to do it thur the insurance . replacing the outside screen is a simple process.The lcd screen is working fine it the outside screen that is cracked. As long as it isn't a touch screen you can use the phone. A lot of manufactures don't just replace the screens the for free the chargea fee. So your best bet is to get the manufacture to replace it but it may take two weeks.hope this help

    Touch screen isn't working


    this also happened to me, the screen from the inside is either cracked or had blown out (stopped woking because of maybe over heat or some other bizzare reason, the only way to know for sure what happened is to obviously open the phone) you have to buy a 60 to 70 dollar (US dollar) lg LCD screen, and tool kit to open the phone, take out the lcd, and put the new one it if the old lcd is fine, then return the lcd that u bought and call warranty. a new lg vu cost around 100 to 120

    Screen does not show picture.


    You have a bad LCD Screen! Your touch screen is good. I have found a good tutorial to walk you through changing out the screen. You can find a replacement LCD screen on eBay. I will copy and paste the tutorial here for you and also include the link for future reference. These are not hard to replace, just exercise patience. You do not feel comfortable doing it yourself, you can email us and we'll quote you a price for the screen plus labor to do it for you.

    our email cellularsolutions4less@yahoo.com

    The tutorial URL: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091121161109AAvpij4


    The copy and pasted version of the tutorial:
    I recently cracked the LCD on my new Xenon. I found a replacement LCD on ebay, but I was unable to find any information on how to take the phone apart. I figured my way through it and thought I should post something someplace so others can find it.

    This probably voids your warranty... You need good eye sight and be prepared to drop microscopic screws that you need to chase after. Pretty much the only tool you need is a small philips eye glass screw driver and a small flat screw driver or pry device. I noticed some kits on ebay that include a pry tool and a t6 torx driver, but my xenon is all philips not torx screws...

    - First remove the battery
    and sim.
    - Remove the 6 screws around the outside of the back of the phone and a seventh screw behind where the battery rests.
    - The plastic colored part of the phone can now be removed from the phone body. There are some plastic clips that snap it in, so it will take some prying to get it free. But don't break it.
    - You can unplug the flat cable that runs from the screen half of the phone to the phone motherboard. Simply pry it up with your finger nail away from the circuit board.
    - There are three buttons on the side of the phone, the volume rocker, camera
    , and lock button that you should take not of, mine fell our and I had to put them back in. Also, there is a rubber knob on the end of the SD slot and USB port covers that snap into the housing that might come dislodged and need to be reset.
    - There are two sets of four screws that attach the screen half of the phone to the rails it slides on.
    - After these screws are removed you can seperate the two halves, notice the spring that locks in place in two oblong holes (one on each half of the phone, screen and keyboard.)
    - There are six screws on the back of the screen, three are covered by plastic circles that need to be pried free. They are just glued in place.
    - Now you can remove the back, which again requires some prying to snap it free.
    - The screen has two pieces of black tape holding it into the phone body and it also has the cable going to the ear piece taped to the back of the screen in two places.
    - Once all the tape is free you can unplug where the earpiece cable connects to the circuit board by the mouth piece.
    - The connector for the LCD screen is different then the others so far. This on is not a snap down plug, it is more like a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) connector. However, when I tried to hinge open the white part that clamps the ribbon down I broke mine. So perhaps this is not a ZIF. Maybe a Some Insertion Force connector? I just unplugged the old cable by pulling it out and pushed the new cable in. My screen still works with the partially broken clamp. Hopefully someone else figures this part out better then I did.
    - The ear piece contains a magnet that likes to attach to the back of the LCD. Make sure you get everything seated before you try and snap it back together.

    Please leave positive feedback for us :)

    Cracked outside LCD Screen on my PEBL


    This is a big take-appart for someone who is not used to this.

    I have not worked on your particular model. With many of these phones, it is a combination of snap-fit and small screws.

    The work is delecate. It is possible to break or disturb something along the way. At home you will not have the means to do any of the SMD type soldering, or to troubleshoot the phone if something goes wrong.

    My preference for someone who is not experienced, trained, and equiped, would be to take the phone to the service center for it, and have them change the piece. At least you know that you will have a working phone when they finish.
