Sounds like the LCD digitizer which either broke inside OR became disconnected. If the impact was not enough to sustain a screen crack, and you have warranty with either LG or through your carrier, you can get LG to fix it free if there is no physical damage, cracked screen, or water damage, with your carrier, it would be the easy, just tell them the screen isn't broken, the phone is intact but the screen is blank. That is a hardware failure... they are supposed to be able to withstand some drops so it really depends on how much physical damage there is.
A digitizer LCD is not expensive and there are ways to change them fairly simple since the screen isn't cracked, you go through most LG phones via the back, remove the camera, remove a black cover that holds the sim and or memory card, BE CAREFUL and please look at youtube to see a complete disassembly of your particular LG phone.
Just got this one from eBay for about 66$ - I cracked my screen too, I'm going to replace it tomorrow, if you have any of the same luck I have had trying to find a decent bargain, this might be your best bet. Good luck.
Here is the response that I got from Verizon customer service today via e-mail. I, too, have the broken hinge on a new LG VX8350:
"According to our records a limited number of LG VX8350 devices may
exhibit a cracked hinge or stress cracks on the front housing from
normal operation. LG determined hinge / stress cracking is due to a
production issue with the hinge. LG has implemented corrective action
to resolve issue in future production and devices repaired by LG."
They are replacing the phone with a certified LG. All in all, I am very pleased with their commitment to customer service. I would suggest contacting Verizon directly and letting them know that you are aware of the hinge problems.
I have seen lots of LCD Screens cracked or broken on an LG Shine. A replacement screen can be bought for around $20 from Ebay. And the process of replacing it yourself if rather simple. All you need are a small philips screwdriver and a plastic tab (guitar pick) or a fingernail.
Here are two links that will help you out. The first is a guide that will show you step by step how it's done. And the second is a good link for buying replacement LCD Screens to replace your broken one.
