Dropped iphone with WHITE Screen

I dropped my iphone 3g today from a height of 1 feet. The touchscreen is working properly but the display screen / LCD has gone WHITE. Touchscreen fucntions like answering & rejecting calls and sliding unlock is working fine but could not see anything only full WHITE screen and sometimes flickering lines.

Does anybody have a solution for this problem? Pleae tell me.

    Same here - dropped, screen went all white. Managed to turn it off by holding in the power and home buttons for a few seconds, but can't get it to power on now.

    yep, dropped it from about 18", and it's a white screen.  iTunes still recognized it, and I've done a factory restore, but no solution..off to the Genius Bar I guess with credit card in hand

    same thing has happened to me when it dropped out of my pocket. the screen is perfectly fine with no cracks or anything on it but the whole LCD screen is white with lines going across it. The flex cable is most likely disconnected so im gonna send it into apple and let them deal with it.

Hi
There might be a Flex cable that disconnected in the phone, you will need to bring it to a cell phone shop or apple to have a look at it.

I dropped my iphone on the floor and there is sound coming from it but the screen is completely black, Will i have to buy a new screen?


Hi!

If your screen is not having a crack on it then there is a possibility that it can work again.

But if it has a crack then you need to buy a new screen.

Hope it helps..

Thank you for reaching Fixya.

Please leave comments for further assistance.

I dropped my iphone 3g flat on screen. now the screen is white. i still receive calls and plays music on a dock. help?


Your lcd is probably out. Look on ebay for it, price range is about 25-35 US dollars. Here is the screen replacement guide link : http://www.portatronics.com/guide/iPhone-3G-Repair-Guide/

Another thing, try resitting your screen wires. #1, #2, and #3. Maybe that will work.

I have 3 grey lines on my screen. It started off as 1. What to do


If there's no external damage on the screen then it must be inside. According to some people that have shared the same experience, lines go smaller at warm to hot temperatures and may fade whereas if it were cold, lines grow big. Although, in most cases it will remain there unless you replace the screen or solve the problem. iPhones have a sensitive screen which generally isn't shock proof if you drop it with or without a case covering it. Prices to fix your iPhone vary but are really expensive.

Okay today i dropped iphone on the ground and


You have been dropping your phone so hard that the body cracked. With your second dropping, the circuits may have got disconnected. Take it to your service centre to get it going.
