This behavior comes when the camera is confused about whether the flip-screen is snapped into the camera screen out or screen in (for protection). The screen is supposed to turn off automatically when you snap it into the camera-back screen down. But if you flip and twist it in a certain way, the camera gets confused. I'll bet that if you keep your screen out, on the side of the camera, you can take pictures just as well as ever. To fix the problem, flip the screen out with the camera on, then rotate it all the different ways you can which allow you to close it with the face out. One of the orientations will leave the screen on, I believe. At least this procedure is the one I followed on my A610 to fix the same problem.
Moto RAZR phones are notorious for this. Best thing to do - Get a new phone. Inside of the hinge, there is a sensor that detects if the phone is open or shut. When you open the phone, it still thinks its closed, so the screen stays white, and if im correct the outside display should still work. Pretty much not-fixable unless you know someone who can take it apart and re-position the sensor (will void the warranty)
This issue can be resolved by getting the flip replaced on the phone. You can check the nearest Sprint repair center to see if they have that part in stock. If they do, you should be able to get your phone fixed right on the spot. Charges may apply if you do not have the service and repair plan.
most flip phones, or flip anythings use magnets and sensors to detect if they're closed or not.
Let's do a little experiment. Take a magnet. Now, run that magnet just above and right of the opened RAZR keypad. If your phone acts like it's been closed, then there's nothing wrong with the sensor. That's a GOOD thing. All that needs replacing is the magnet in the top part of the phone. It's located the bottom right of an open phone below the screen, right beside the camera on the inside. Replacing it is as simple as going to http://www.cnn.cn and ordering a new one. (you'll need a T7 driver to open the top part of the housing)
If it doesn't shut off then the sensor itself is shot. As far as I know, there's no where on the net to get a replacement component for it.
