Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone
My phone has a blank white main screen and i don't know why the front screen still has everything on it but the main screen is white i have only had my phone for about a month and have not had a problem with it until now what should i do and how can i fix it?
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.
