Re: Flashing blank screen

If your phone is less then a year old bring it to a store that is owned by Verizon. You could also call 1-800-256-4646, then ask for the FRU (Factory Replacement Unit) department. They will get you a replacement phone.

Same problem, but mine has the LG logo when the white screen is flashing. And its BRAND new, did not get a chance to even program it.

Sony Ericsson W580i screen went blank

Ok, my phone had the same problem. I took the face plate off and the screen out and there's actually a little connector that connects to a board behind the screen(can come unplugged for replacement). I fiddled around a little with it and it worked fine. about a week or 2 later it happened again. I tried fixing it again and it would just flash white>black>lines>white, repeat. I know my phone's taken a bit of abuse, dropped down a road, soaked in rain, but it always worked after. These phone screens aren't meant to take abuse. Problem; the phone screen died. Solution; get a new screen.

K880i white flashing screen

White Screen Of Death. Quite common on Sony Ericsson phones. My K800i does it every time its battery shuts off while it's on (so I try to make sure it doesn't). You need to (google terms) reflash sony ericsson phone Maybe also first backup GDFS The photos, except those on the memory card, and other stuff will be lost, I'm afraid. But good news is that your contact list can likely be saved by backing up the GDFS.

I was talking on phone in the car. Made a quick call. Everything work fine. Than the screen went blank white. I can't see the screen of any application. I take the battery out to see if it would reset the phone and turn it back on. It went straight back to the blank white screen. I try another solution. I use my home phone. Call my phone. It signal as it was off mode. Straight to answering machine. Red light flashes....I then, hold #1 to get voicemail. It did work. So my service is good. So my problem is how can I solve the blank screen issue? Has it happen to anyone before. Battery strong and it's not low on battery level. Thanks for any suggestions.

It turns on but a blank white screen only shows

i had the same issue when my phone got slightly wet. try taking everything apart (sim card, battery, back). let them dry out for a little bit then after like a day or two put the phone back together. turn it on it will be a white screen for a little bit but give it like 2 or 3 mins and if should come back. I did this for my phone cuz i really needed the pictures off it and it worked! hopefully if will work for you too. GOOD LUCK!

Lg vx 8300

My screen goes blank from time to time and when I turn it off and turn it back on again, it seems to re-boot itself and is fine. However, I have never had this problem with any other phone and fear my phone may be dying. It is only 1 year old and worked fine for the first 8 months I had it. But the blank screen seems to happen more frequently lately. I don't think I will buy and LG again.
