    I had my phone in my pocket working fine. (the keypad and volume buttons hasn't been working for a month though) Then I got a text so I clicked to read it and the screen was white with two black dots on it, as if it had fallen and broken.
    I'm getting really annoyed at the phone, I got it about 6 months ago.

    my screen has gone white and you can't see anything, how is this fixed

  • Anonymous Apr 06, 2009

    My screen would go in and out from normal, then back to white. Sometimes when i would press between the END key and the circle navigator I was able to get the screen back, but not anymore. Its getting worse and worse. Now it just keeps turning off and back on again. Is it the firmwire? Is Sprint really replacing them for free? I have insurance through altell (i think?) and i've had the same model replaced 3 times for various malfunctions, and they are still charging

    same problem with white screen, just wondering tho, will i lose all my memory and contacts and stuff? cuz that would be a big deal

    Same deal, I have two rumors and one of them just went "White Screen" out of nowhere. I am sure I am screwed out of the warranty, but if this is something that is happening to alot of them, it should be addressed by LG.

It has something to do with a cable that connects from your keypad to the rest of the phone. If you bring this back to the place that you got it at, they should be able to get it fixed. I know I asked about it when I bought mine, and they said that they don't have the cables there yet, so they would have to send the phone away to get it fixed.

How to fix screen on lg rumor 2


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.

You should buy a new phone, 90 percent of the time the screen shorts out when it gets wet. These phones are terrible, i would take advantage of having to get a new phone and get something completely different.

LG Rumor Screen

I'm sorry. This isn't an issue that you will be able to solve yourself. The problem lies with the ribbon cable in the phone. You see the ribbon cable wears down causing the phone to "garble" or white out and will need to be replaced which can only be done at a repair center. This problem shouldn't cost you anything even if you don't have insurance or a service plan because this is a LG and Sprint known issue.
