Use Motorola Phone Tools (MPT) to backup your phone to a computer. You can reload to a new phone if you have to go that route. From what your describing you just need to replace the flex cable.

My htc went on low battery and now that i charged it the screen is black ... it just says tmobile g1 and then android and then it goes to a black screen

hi viviana escobar you can take the battery out of the phone next take the sim card out. Now put the sim card back into the phone and then the battery this should reboot your network as well as the phone. Now if after this your phone still doesn't turn on you need to a hard reset. this will wipe out all the data on your phone. To do a hard reset on your phone hold the power button and volume up and down at the same time. Next you should see a screen that should shows fast reboot erase user data. This is should help.

I have a motorolla razor and my keybord is blue when i turn it on but my hole screen is black. how do i fix it? anyone please?

Your screen is probably shot.

Try making a call, if you can hear and make a call, it's a 90% chance it's the screen.

Razr's have a problem with the cable connecting the screen to the bottom of the phone going bad.

Your probably best off just getting a new phone.

Good news? If the phone is actually ON, you should be able to get your contacts out of it if it's a CDMA phone (no SIM card) or if you didn't save them on your SIM card.

On Razor V3, screen suddenly black, BUT keyboard lights up

Hello secoleman,

I'm sorry to hear about the bad news. Unfortunately Razor phones are notorious for having malfunctions (hardware failure).

Your screen has been damaged, any number of things could have happened from just a manufacturing defect or sitting on it, dropping it the list goes on.

Basically you will want to get a new phone as there is not much you can do about it. When you replace your phone you can take the sim out of the one you have now and can put it in your new phone.

Post back if you have any more questions, Thank you for trying Fixya!

Phone screen is black

With the phone off, hold * and # keys and then press power button:

- If your phone screen still dont show anything then the backlight or whole screen is broken and you would need to replace or make a technician to replace the screen.
- If your phone shows a boot screen with serial numbers on it, then you would need to re-flash or reload the phone firmware to recover your phone. For that you may need some special software, a PC and your phone's USB cable. You can find tutorials and guides over the web.

To get out the bootloader screen you need to take out the battery and the re-flash procedure delete all your data so I recomend you to download it with your phones PC software.

Good Luck...
