Yes it can, you would need to get the lcd replaced and if necessary the digitizer as well. you can find these on ebay or at you local repair shop. i have repaired quite a few of these so i know it can be fixed

I have a G1 and everytime i try to use the touch screem it doest work.


your touch screen digitzer could be bad, if you dropped the phone or water damage was involved. Theres are cables that connect the touch screen to a lcd then to a flex cable that connects to the main board. I would first replace the touch screen digitzer.

I DROPPED MY PHONE IN WATER NOW WHEN I TURN IT BACK ON EVERYTHING WORKS FINE EXECEPT THE LIGHT OF MY SCREEN ITS SO DARK I CULD BARELY SEE ANYTHING.WHAT DO I DO NOW?


If your device gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

1. DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON
2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.

G1 in the toilet


Let it dry for a longer period. As, if the water has gone into the screen area, draining the water is a real issue. If it still doesnt respond, get it to a service station before the condition worsens.

I spilled sprite on my g1!!


I dropped my motorola sliver in the bathtub full of water and it quit working totally. I called ATT where I got the phone and they told me to look under the battery. I lifted out the battery and they asked me if there was a white dot under it. I told them no but there was a red one. They said "gone". Meaning that the dot was usually white but if it turns red, the circuits are water/liquid damaged and to throw it away and get another phone. Look under your battery.
