How do i get my i885 off of airplane mode it wont let me do nothing it only shows a white screen


Hi the white screen is not due the it being on flight mode, the reason you have got a white screen is due to a data ribbon breaking, let me explain

their is a thin piece of ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board in the bottom of the phone, now inside this ribbon is several one strand copper wires, these send the signal from the circuit board to the screen, now when you open and close the phone this ribbon bends so as it keeps the signal with the screen at all tiems, now over time the copper wires inside this ribbon become brittle and break and this is what causes the white screen, its just a loss of data.

you know the phone is working as you have a white screen but you wont be able to do anything as you cant see what the hell your doing.

the good news is as this is such a very common problem on all flip and slide phones it makes the part very cheap to buy and cheap to have fitted, once this ribbon has been replaced your phone will be working again as normal.

all the flight mode does is put your phone into a none working state but you would still be able to see the screen and play games etc so this is not the cause of your problem, you need to get this data ribbon replaced, the best place to have this done is go to a small phone shop and not a big branded one as the big shops will send your phone off and this will cost you more.

if you go to a small high street phone shop and ask them to repair it for you they should be able to repair it whilst you wait or next day at the latest.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My samsung screen is white but it works ive tried everything, this hbas happen before screen going white and the battery had to be without juice to come back. it works but ithe screeen is white


hi, the main reason the screen turns whits is due to the thin ribbon that sends the data from the circuit board to the screen being damaged what happens is that the thin copper wires that are inside the ribbon ware and then break causing a short to the screen and this is what turns the screen white. this happens on most flip and slide phones as the ribbon moves when you slide or flip the phone so over time it becomes brittle and you lose the connection and this turns the screen white.

sometimes it will right itself if you open and close the phone a couple of times but this wont be a long term fix how ever it may be that bad that this will no longer work, its not expensive to get this ribbon replaced but taking you phone to a small phone shop would be your cheapest option.

Screen turns white


Hi there.
The ribbon cable which runs behind the screen has either become loose or has become defective.
If you still have warranty on the laptop send it in for repair, if you don't post back and i will tell you how to disassemble the screen to get to the ribbon cable.
If the ribbon cable is faulty you can of course use an external monitor so you can still use the laptop.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Screen is white-- no menu no text nothing but backlight


IF THE WHITE SCREEN STAYS ON:
White screen indicates the signal from the video board inside your monitor is not getting to the screen.
You will have to take it apart to try to maybe fix it.
First thing you want to check is the connections from the video (VGA DVI) board to the back of the lcd panel. Bad connection here can cause your problem.
If the connections look clean and tight then you may have blown a fuse on the back of the lcd panel on the long circuit board. Usually the fuse is near the right side of where the ribbon connects and can be marked F1 or FB1. Checking this for DC voltage of about 5 volts may give you an answer.

Screen is black but pointer is still lit


Yes. I know exactly how to fix this because I had the same problem. Most likely what happened was the ribbon that attaches your screen to the motherboard has gotten loose or fallen off. All you need to do is remove the small screw (the only screw) on the back near where you remove the batteries. Then pop off the top rubber part on the front. Now you can pull the entire center piece out from the plastic case and you will see two ribbons. Make sure each one is secure to the motherboard. Put everything back in the casing, put the screw back in and it should work. It worked for me.

Vx2235wm lcd flickers a bit then turns white


White screen is an indication of a faulty video board.
A blown fuse in the actual screen will cause the same effect but usually these do not reset on a fresh startup.
You can check the ribbon going from the video board to the back of the screen to see if it is somehow working loose, but I think based on your description that this isn't the problem.

Cant see anything


you probably need a new ribbon in your phone
same happened to me. the screen just went white and whenever i turned it on it just stayed white.
i had my phones screen replaced, the ribbon replaced and it re-flashed and its fine now, so i'd say its probably the ribbon.
