    The inside screen on my LG 8300 is all white. The only way to make it go away is to use the over-the-air update but it only works for 15min and goes back to white.

    I have the same problem. I got off a phone call, closed my phone, and when I opened it the main screen was white. This has happened before and it just started working again a couple of days later. My front screen works and I am still able to make phone calls and receive phone calls, I just cannot see the main screen.

    Yes, i am having the same issue. It seems to be sporadic as well. I did notice that you can ever so faintly see the screen (i mean really really faintly), if you look at it from the very top of it, downward. It is nearly unreadable, though.

    If your phone is still under warranty, take it back to your service provider. They replaced my phone at no charge.

    If you open/close it a couple times does it go back to normal? That's what mine is doing now, but thought maybe it was only beginning to go bad.

My Solution: Heat it up by just sitting on it or holding it in your hands// Take the battery out and back in/ Try keeping the battery out of it for a full day
My Story :) My mom dropped the phone in the dishes because she was drunk haha, I quickly took out the battery, but when the next day came by I looked at the phone and saw the same problem everyone here has. I kept replacing the battery on the hope it would just magically fix itself. Now 2 days from when it dropped in water, I kept flipping it, replaced the battery again (just taking it out and back in) after I sat on it a while, possibly the heat somehow helped it to work again.. I'm amazed it works haha, it was in the water fully submerged for half a min when I had to snatch it out of the dishes But, it is most likely that I took the battery out, the battery is the thing that ruins electronics, just remember to take it out if you drop it in water. Good luck. If worst comes to worst and your going to buy a new phone, maybe try using a blow dryer on it for a little bit **or just do this in the first place**

HERE IS A TEMPORARY FIX? SORT OF? SO I have an LG vx5500 and I had the white screen on the main screen but the outside display was still normal. I read all of these posts and tried taking the battery out with the power on and then replacing it after a couple minutes. That didn't seem to work so while the power was on I typed the *228 and hit send. Then I told the verizon robot lady to program my phone. She did and after the call was over the phone was the same. I held the 1 button down which does the automatic voice mail call to see if I could still access my voice mail. I could and was listening to and saving/deleting voice mail messages when all of a sudden the screen was visible and working again. I ended the voice mail call and the screen still worked. I don't know which step in this sequence was the working one but this worked momentarily. Then when I closed the phone and opened it again- the white screen was back. I tried the sequence again and it worked again but it is a temporary fix because the white screen comes back after the phone is closed and reopened.

My LG phone screen will not react to touch


Hello,


When a phone screen is blank or has a white screen, etc, there are three things that could be the cause;


1. Bad/defective screen and the solution is screen replacement. (In your case, your screen might be failing).
2. Software/Virus problem and solution is to flash the phone
3. Flex problem and solution is to change the flex. In some cases the flex might have shifted or not in it's right position, in this case, just fix the flex back properly and all will be well.


Bad/defective screen:


If your phone is having a white screen, first thing to do is dismantle the phone carefully, check if the screen is properly fixed to the phone board, also check if screen flex is intact. Once you've confirmed that all these are okay and screen is not still coming up, then it means your screen is bad. You can go ahead and replace the screen.


Make sure you confirm the screen is bad before you do any replacement.


Software/Virus:


Sometimes software/virus problem on phones are mistaken to screen problem. When a screen is white or blank, sometimes it's a virus problem. To further confirm, turn on the phone, wait for about 2 minutes when you know the phone must have booted fully, then use another phone to call the phone with white or blank screen. If the phone rings, it means it's not a virus problem, but if it doesn't ring, it means it's a software/virus problem.


If you discover your phone has a virus problem, you will have to flash the phone for it to display again,


Flex problem


When your phone screen is blank, white, has horizontal/vertical lines, turn images up-side-down, etc, be calm, 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 acting like any of the mentioned problem.


This is usually common with flip and slide phones. The flex worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone. Samsung and Motorola phones mostly have this kind of problems.


Replacing the flex is the only solution to this problem. 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 replaced.

Conclusion

Disassemble your phone and check the screen part in order to verify from the above which is actually the cause of the problem.

Please let me know if you need anymore assistance.

Good luck.

Hi,

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.

Good luck.
