Question about LG VX5200 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Front Display My front display turned black the other day. At first it started with the screen being black when i pressed one of the side buttons. Once i opened the phone and closed it the screen would return to normal. It did this multiple times and the time right before it turned permanently black the screne had rainbow swirls all over it. If anyone can help me that would be greatly appreciated. The screen still lights up but it remains black. Thanks in Advance ~Amanda

Re: Front Display

This seems to be a common problem. The same thing happened to me about 8 months ago. I'm still using the same phone, and I even have to carry around a list of contacts just so I can call people. I brought the phone into the Verizon store and they claimed it was water damage. The little water damage sticker thing didn't show that it was water damage, but they said there was corrosion inside the phone. I still don't believe that it was water damage, considering the number of people that had the same exact problem. I get to upgrade soon though, and I've learned my lesson - I'm getting the full coverage insurance. Just so they don't try to say it was water damage again, if anything happens, I'm just going to say it was stolen.

My battery on my nokia lumia 520 is not lasting very long and is gettinghot what cold be the problem

There may be some applications running in the background (where you can't see them) or features turned on that can drain your battery more quickly.
Pressing and holding down the Return (or left arrow) on the bottom of your Start screen will allow your Windows Phone to display smaller images of all the application programs running at the same time on your phone. Each of these images has an 'X' in the upper right corner. Tapping the 'X' will close that application. If you close all the applications, you will be returned to the Start screen.
Tap on the Settings tile (it may appear as a small gear) to view all the configuration options. If you don't have the Settings tile on your home screen, swipe in from the right side of your home screen to see an alphabetic list of all the applications installed on your phone. Scroll down to the 'Settings' entry, then hold your finger on that item until you see the white menu appear beneath your finger. Select "pin to start" to add that tile to your Start screen. If 'pin to start' is not enabled, it means the Settings tile is already on your Start screen somewhere.
Once you open the Settings application, you should look for features that are set 'ON' that you have no need for. For example, if you have no Bluetooth devices, you should turn off Bluetooth. If you don't care to have applications use your location when you use them, turn off 'Location'. Note that if you want to use your phone as a GPS when you drive, you will need to turn on Location, but after you arrive at your destination, you can turn location off again to conserve your battery.
Look at your 'display' and 'glance screen' settings. You may want to set your display to go to sleep more quickly. Set your 'brightness' to automatic. Your display is one of the major battery-draining pieces of your phone, so turning off your display more quickly (and manually turning it off by pressing the power button when you're through) will extend your battery life.

My is get freeze, when people call you, you cannot take their call. and the entire screen go black. then you have to turn the phone off and start again


From the question you wrote, it means that the phone has two problems to be solved:

The freezing of the phone,
the black screen display.

What causes a phone to freeze is when the memory of the phone has tampered and has allowed the phone to have memory loss and it will need to be restored for the phone to function normal again.

It can be restored by flashing the phone to restore the memory back.

The black screen is caused when the flex that connects the board of the phone to the front board that enable the screen to be able to display is damaged, it makes the screen of the phone go black.
And it needs to be replaced for it to be able to display again.

After fixing the problem of the phone, the phone will start working properly again.

Have a nice day.

Samsung SCH-u740 problem - front screen stays on and speakerphone switches automatically

I would recommend a hard-reset of the device. Keep in mind that this will delete all of your contact information and customized settings.

On a side note, be careful not to accidentally press the speaker-phone button on the right side of the phone during a call. I used to have this phone and I would sometimes do it without even realizing it.

How di I get my K850i to show the time in screen saver mode

Press the volume button on the side of the phone to display a screen similar to previous Sony Ericsson Cybershot phones during standby mode. It will display the time and a message icon. This is probably an energy saving feature when the screen goes black in standby mode, but you must press the volume button to get to that screen.
