How do you fix blank screens?my internal is half white,abd external is fully white


Hello,

there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is not displaying any picture.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.

Good luck.

Hi,

there is nothing wrong with your screen. The problem is from the screen flex. The flex is either worn out or has disconnected from its right position.

So you need to open the phone cover and check the flex. If the flex is well fixed and the screen is still displaying white, then it means you have to change the flex completely.

This kind of problem is common with flip and slide phone. Its as a result of constant opening and close of the slide or flip phone.

Take care.

My girlfriend's nokia cell phone all of a sudden yesterday made a odd chiming noise and when she opened it up the screen she had was completly backwords for a few moments and then it went blank...can see...


If its a flip or slide handset, then the flex ribbon is damaged, this will need to be changed...

Sliding and flip phones have a thin ribbon, which connects the phones screen and any buttons that are at the top to the phones main PCB... A damaged one of these can cause anything from no display at all, white screen, fuzzy colours, rotated screen, dodgy bits, non functioning buttons and lots of other things.

Depending on your model you may be able to get a ribbon from somewhere like ebay and fit it yourself, some are more awkward than others, there should be a guide available somewhere, however it does depend on which phone it actually is :)

Screen gets distorted and turns white


Hi,

The part that is bad is the Ribbon flex cable that geos from the main board to the LCD board. Over time the cable becomes chaffed and will lose continuity between the traces. It can be fixed with

Tessco Part #: GH97-07715A

It does need to be soldered on the LCD side.
