Question about Android Cell Phones

1 Answer

Pantech flex my phone asked me for a system update. I clicked okay and it updated. Instead of sending me to my lock screen or off so i could turn it back on, it went to the home lock screen but the screen is just black (no extra things) and the touch screen stopped working. My alarms are still going off and i can take "screenshots" (it doesn't show me but just gives me the sound). What do i need to do?

The problem is not with the software. This is a hardware problem. Your mobile phones touch pad would have gone for a toss i guess. That doesnt have any relation with the firmware update. Am really sorry to say this, that this problem cannot be corrected manually. It needs expertise assistance. So please go to a nearby service center and get your mobile serviced properly!

If the problem is consistent in other windows besides strictly the keyboard it is possible that the capacitive touch panel is defective or has been damaged.

Phone shops and some unlock sites can unlock your phone, but they want a fee. Your provider should send you an unlock code after the contract is over. But you have to ask for it. Check your contract.

My samsung phone tuch screen don't work plzzzzzzzzzzz help me

Hi, If your touch screen is not working, there's just 2 major causes of such, either a hardware cause which might be either the phone falling on a hard object or in water which could damage the sensor board and either the screen is malfunctioning and needs to be calibrated.
If you can access the menu of the phone, i will advice you calibrate the screen first before you send it to a repair shop. There is no updates to download for such problem as updating the firmware of the phone would do nothing but change the settings of the phone.
To calibrate the screen, you will have to go to the phones menu, go to settings, then you select the calibrate screen, it will show you some stars to touch and once you touch them properly, then your screen will be able to work effectively.
But if you cannot access the menu because of the touch, then i will advice you send it off for repairs, and what to repair on the phone is the sensor board.

Flex of the phone can also affect the function of the touch screen.

The flex of the phone is located inside the phone, it controls the functions of the screen an also the keypads of the phone.

The flex is a thread like object that is located inside the phone. To see the flex, you will need to disassemble the phone to get to the flex of the phone.

After replacing the phone flex, your done.

You can get a replacement flex from any of the phone repair stores around you.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for using fixya....

How do I turn of the lock and unlock sound on my pantech laser?

I asked Pantech and the short answer is, you can't.

However, I discovered if you slide out the keyboard out it will unlock without the annoying click.

Please, go to the Pantech website and leave a complaint so it gets fixed in the next release of software. IMHO, the lock/unlock sound should follow whatever the Touch Feedback settings are for volume !

Hope this helps.....

My phone screen does not display anything anymore. It's blank, but the phone is working.

NB:read to the end before trying any of this and remove your memory card first
the flex of your phone is bad and cannot be fixed by just anybody. it is advised that you send it to a repairer to help you check it and then see if it's just the flex or both the flex and screen. Although this is quite common to some nokia phones but try
(1)switching it off, then back on
if that doesn't work, try,
(2)you can switch it off, wait for some time and see
if it still doesn't work,try
(3)hard resetting(you would lose all data so try using pc suite to back up first).hold down *#7370# or *#7780#. in both cases, you lose all your data and default lock code is 12345(unless if you changed it)
lastly,try this combination.....switch off your phone,hold down the green or call button,the *(asterisk)button,and number 3 button,then switch on your phone.(hold it down while switching it on and don't release until it is fully on and asks you to do some setup. if it's still the same contact nokia or send it for repairs because i dont think a software update can help but feel free to try that out too.hope this was helpful?
