The keyboard on my lg rumor lx260 isnt working


most cases having to do with the keyboard, screen, volume buttons or other parts of the phone is mostly related to the flex cable. the flex cable is a thin bunch of tiny wires that are joined together and form a flat extended cable. it is most likely that your phone is suffering from a problem of either a weak or faulty flex cable which needs to be changed.
my advice is that you send it to a repairer because it is a very delicate process which requires some level of expertise. depending on the type of phone and how common it is, the flex shouln't be too expensive for a phone like yours.
hope this was helpful?

How to fix screen on lg rumor 2


Hello,

What you need to do is to get a screw driver, open the phone and remove the flex that connect the screen to the panel and put it back.

If the problem continues, then you have to change the screen with a good one.

Thanks

My screen goes in and out on my lg rumor


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.

Take care.

My lg scoop screen constantly blacks out. Any way to fix this?


The problem is related to the flex cable. Installation of a new OEM cable will correct this.

My lg rumor just sits at the lg rumor starter scrren


Take the battery out of your phone and wipe the gold contacts with a soft cloth. Wipe the contacts gently on both the phone and the battery. Then replace the battery and test. If this does not work you must go to a Sprint Repair Center.

Phone turns on but wont go past the start up rumor by LG screen


You need to take your LG Rumor back to the store were you bought it. If you have insurance they will fix it or give you a new phone.

My son's Rumor phone screen is blank after the phone turns on.


If the LCD is white/and or garbled then "YES" this is a known issue.

First locate the Sprint Insignia (Label on the back of device) to check manufacturer date. You will notice two bar-codes one entitled ESN HEX. At the very bottom of the this bar-code is a combination of numbers and letters. The first two numbers are the manufacturer's date (Example: 801). The first number stands for the year and the second number signifies the month. The example above indicates January of 2008.

Most LG Rumor Series manufactured before April 2008 suffered with white/garbled screen. This is a problem with flex cable; simple fix.

Just visit your local Sprint Service Center for this specific repair. Regardless if you have insurance or not, this defect is still covered. Thanks.
