I had the same problem with my Razr V3, it was way out of warranty so I had a go at fixing it, and it wasn't too hard.
(I had the blank/off screen problem but the rest of the phone seemed functional)

I took off the rubber pegs on the inside of the flip-screen to reveal the screws. They need a T5 screwdriver head (tiny star shape). I removed all 4 from that side.
I then 'forced' the back casing of the flip-screen off (side with camera). The key is to open the end furthest from the hinge, then it will simply lift off.
(I read a complicated guide suggesting that you use something like a creditcard to slide it off, I'd give that a go first as I did do some scratch damage when using the screwdriver)
Once open (might be dusty), there was a thin 'belt' coming through from the main part of the handset (by the hinge), it has a black square on it. This was simply flailing about, so I inserted it securely back into it's socket (the only place it can go, same shape)
[I guess thats the power supply to the screen]
I would re-attach the back panel hinge end first (camera end).
Then simply screw it back together.

The T5 screwdriver isn't everyday stuff, most sets only go down to T10 it seems. Maybe if you have family friend who fixes things you could borrow one. Apparently those types of screws are used somewhere in cars so maybe a mechanic or car-person?
(I was a bit narrow-minded and frantically bought a little set for £5)
Hope that helps.

Lg km900 blank screen during an incoming call -


There is a little rectangle shape thing next to the lg logo on the top of the fone screen. If this is blocked by screen protector it will cause the phone to blank of during calls. Its a power saver that blanks the phone when its near your face. Try it. Take off the screen protector & make a call. Then place your finger over the little thing & the screen goes blank. Just cut a lil space in the screen protector & that will fix the problem

Outside and inside screen is "black", but still "glows" when powered on?


My phone is doing the same thing. My phone hasn't been dropped or exposed to any liquids, but the screens are not working. LG suggested that I send it to them. If they can't fix it, they will just replace it. The only thing I have to pay for is sending it to them. I can make and receive calls but I can't read text messages which is why I mainly got the phone. Just send it to LG Wireless. Call them and they will give you a number that has to be attached to the package and the phone. Within two weeks, they will fix it or replace it. I had to get my LG 8500 replaced, and it was no problem.
