Cell phone screen went purple how do i fix it?

Ok so today i dropped my phone about 4 feet and it hit the ground ( accident i bent to pick up something on the coffee table and it slipped out of my hand, i didn't think it hit too hard and it only hit the carpet but i picked it up and the mini LCD lights up it just doesn't display anything, the main LCD is purple-ish with a little white around the top, it won't ring when i get a call, but it will vibrate, i can answer calls and talk to people but i can't hear them, if i put in a headset i can hear them and talk to them, i can recieve texts i just can't see them and it will vibrate when i get one and the red light on the back indicating a text lights up but nothing else.....oh and the model is an audiovox CDM-8910. It'd be just terrific if someone could enlighten me on this, oh and the chrager port is kinda messed up too....which i guess is a comon problem with these phones from what i'd read.

    My display is exactly the same as it was when new, except that it is now much 'darker' and almost impossible to see - especially in daylight. The colors didn't change (no purple) it just got darker -- as when you make a room darker with a dimmer switch.

    My phone has been dropped more than once, and on to hard ground or pavement - not a carpet.

    Once, right after it had been charged, it went back to it's original brightness -- but that only lasted for a short time, and hasn't happened again, even though it has been charged quite a few times since then.

    I've tried every setting I could access, trying to correct the problem - without any success. (Display... Contrast, Backlight ---- These don't help, though I thought Backlight might lessen the draw on the battery.)

    I'm thinking that dropping it (at least inre MY phone) may be only coincidental -- and that the more likely problem would be a worn-out battery. It's the original battery - and I think it's been longer than 3 years.

    I just ordered a new battery today -- on the basis that I probably need one, and it's cheaper than paying to have the phone serviced. (I read someone's post saying they were quoted $40 for service.) The battery was on sale at for $8.99 + $4.99 for shipping. So my natural sales resistance was overcome.

    I realize this doesn't help with the purple screen, but at least it's about the Audiovox 8910 -- which, by the way, I have found to be quite satisfactory up until the display problem.  

    I chose it over others mainly because of it's speakerphone capability.  Of course, 3+ years, later there are phones with much better features, and I should probably get a new one -- but then there's that "natural sales resistance" issue.   :-)

    Good luck to all,

The first thing that made your fon faulty is the flexible cable that connects the boards of your phone. Go to the service engineer near you to replace your phones flex cable.

Just get a new phone......... the screen can't be fixed so you will have to talk to your company to see if they can replace it, if not, you may consider just buying a new one that isn't so easily breakable

It sounds like the phone itself is broke. Try taking it to a repair store of your service provider to see IF they can fix it. You might have to buy a new phone.

I hit a metal pipe with my cub cadet zero turn lawn mower today. Now it smokes under the deck when I engage the blades and it is not cutting the grass. Have I ruined my mower?

You'll need to look under the deck w/ the mower not running and see why the blades aren't turning. Most likely something is bent (maybe blade) and hitting something. The smoke is probably from the belt slipping and getting hot.

How to choose the right coffee table?

There are three basic rules you should follow in order to pick the right coffee table for you. One, choose a table that's approximately the same height as your sofa cushions. Two, it should measure no more than two-thirds the sofa's total length. And three, keep two feet of clearance around each side. After spending a little quality time with the tape measure, you will have a range of sizes that will work for you.

On two different occasions now, we've had a problem with grounds in our cup. Happened several weeks ago and I decided I just had a bad batch of kcups, Haven't encountered the problem again until...

There's a needle that punches a hole on the bottom of the K-cup. That needle is clogged. Poke it with a paper clip or a thinner wire to unclog it.

No. The warranty does not cover damage caused by dropping it. Maybe you have an insurrance that covers it?

No coffee

We had exactly the same problem. I called the repair shop that had done some repair and maintenance work on our Seaco Vienna superautomatica 3 months before. They had some suggestions which seemed to work:

The problem with the descaling is that the water with the descaling solution only gets flushed through the hot water wand but not through the outlet that leads to the brew group, so small mineral residue that get loosened can get stuck in there. After having the coffee machine turned on and heated up, I removed the brew group, which turns the coffee machine off automatically, so I have access to the water outlet (nozzle) in the back behind the brew group. It has 2 orange caskets and is of a beige color. A small lever on the beige part can be pushed upwards carefully with a fingernail or small screw driver. This releases some steam and pressure so if something is stuck in that outlet it might get flushed out. One can also try to gently insert a tooth pick at the end of the nozzle to loosen stuff. I repeated this procedure a few times after the machine heated up again.

So far it worked and it brews normal coffee again.
