Re: i have a Vx8300 i dropped it and the screen tirned...
On the 8300, the LCD is connected woth a flex cable to the main board. It might have loosened at the connection oint or you might have damaged your LCD. Either way the phoe needs to be opened up and checked physically.

the lock code is by default the last 4 of the phone number...if that doesn't work dial *228 send and choose option #1 to reprogram when its complete it will power cycle and then the lock code will be defaulted back to last 4 of phone number
Sometimes, the last four digits of the phone number will not work as the unlock code, especially if your daughter has changed the code. Even if the phone is locked, dial *228, then press 1 when prompted by the automated system. When it tells you: "Your phone has been programmed successfully", press "Done" or "OK". Once the phone has powered off, then back on, (it will do this automatically) the lock code for the phone will be changed to the last four digits of the phone number. For example, if the phone number is (315) 123-0101, your lock code, after following the above instructions, will now be "0101". Also, you do NOT need to know the lock code that your daughter had for this to work. After the phone has powered back on automatically, you will be able to use the phone normally. *228 does not delete text messages, contacts, etc, but it WILL give you access to a phone which has been locked, without requiring you to know the code that she has set.
Many users of the Pantech phones have been experiencing the same thing.
There are a lot of default in this phone. I would suggest you to return
it to Pantech and try to get a software upgrade (if there is!). Although, I would
recommend you NOT to use it. Even if the Pantech exchange it for a new
one, the same problem will happened in a day or two.
Try dialing *228, then pressing 1. This reprograms the phone to factory defaults, making your security (lock) code the same as the last four digits of your phone number. For example, if your phone number is (315) 123-0101, then after following the above instructions, your passcode is now "0101". *228 is accessible EVEN when the phone has been locked. This method does NOT delete contacts or change your phone number. All of that information remains the same as before you dialed *228. Also, you do NOT need to remember your old passcode for this to work.
the screen will need replacing but if the phonr has been dropped it migh just have slipped of the connectors this is a job for a phone shop as you can damage the phone further buy taking it apart cus the static in your body will blow the circuits it should be cheap to repair and even a new screen can be cheaper the replacing the phone hope this is some help to you...........................
I had to return mine to the Verizon store and they gave me a new one.
This is what happened. I just received the phone from the mail brand new from the Verizon Wireless online store. However, I forgot to charge the battery when i turned it on to activate it. I did start charging it soon after though, and I dialed the *228 and hit 1 to program it. I turned it off, but I tried to turn it on later, and it wouldn't turn on. I let it charge over night, but still I was anble to turn it on. I'm thinking whatever programming was done killed the phone. When i went to the store, they put a new battery and it still wouldn't turn on. So they gave me a new phone.
My Solution: Heat it up by just sitting on it or holding it in your hands// Take the battery out and back in/ Try keeping the battery out of it for a full day My Story :) My mom dropped the phone in the dishes because she was drunk haha, I quickly took out the battery, but when the next day came by I looked at the phone and saw the same problem everyone here has. I kept replacing the battery on the hope it would just magically fix itself. Now 2 days from when it dropped in water, I kept flipping it, replaced the battery again (just taking it out and back in) after I sat on it a while, possibly the heat somehow helped it to work again.. I'm amazed it works haha, it was in the water fully submerged for half a min when I had to snatch it out of the dishes But, it is most likely that I took the battery out, the battery is the thing that ruins electronics, just remember to take it out if you drop it in water. Good luck. If worst comes to worst and your going to buy a new phone, maybe try using a blow dryer on it for a little bit **or just do this in the first place**
