SOURCE: dropped phone with a white screen

Hello, Your phone's display is operated by 2 separate wire ribbons. One of them sends data to the display's matrix and the other one powers the led backlight. A display doesn't produce light on it's own so instead it utilises some white led's to light up. What you see on the display are actually those led's lighting up from under the display. I supose your problem is with the display connector. However the phone must be dissasembled and the display connector must be checked. In order to do this you will need some T5-T6 screwdrivers (they can be found at most radioshacks or electronics store). Locate the display's connectors and with the phone opened, try to move them around a bit to see if something is showing on the display. Also check all the connectors on the phone mainboard for cracks or other defects. I'm sorry for I can't help you more with this on a simple chat. If you have any questions however, please ask and I will try to guide you through this process.

SOURCE: I dropped my phone in a drink the other night

the components of your phone where wet, and it is possible that your phone is death. it can be repaird at the repair center, but it will cost you a lot. it will cost you more then a new phone, so you are better of with a new phone.

How to recover from a black screen after phone been drop in water?


I have always been told that electronics and water do not mix.
This being true, you have nothing to loose by trying.
Remove the battery to avoid further damage.
I have 'been told' that you can put the phone into a container of dry rice and the rice will somehow absorb moisture.
After a day or two take it out, brush off the rice, cross your fingers, and put in the battery.
Like I said above, "to avoid further damage"; so the damage could have been done immediately.
In all probability you will find that it is time for an upgrade.
The carrier may have a trade in program that is very generous if you upgrade to a different, (more expensive), phone or different, (more expensive), service. Ask if you can switch back to what you have now at the end of the contract, and how long before you can do it.

Dropped my phone, half white/half black screen.


Repairing the damage to your phone cannot be performed 'at home'. You'll need to take (or send) it to a repair center to determine the amount of damage it has sustained and the exact parts that will be needed to fix it properly.

If you have insurance on your phone with your cellular provider you can have it replaced -as cell phones being dropped are covered by most insurance policies.

Take the phone to one of your cellular providers Retail Stores that has on-site tech support and repair. They will be able to perform a more accurate assessment of the damage and cost to repair it.

My sony Ericsson C902 screen has two black lines running accross the screen. I did drop it about 2 months ago but it was fine afterwards and since that I have not dropped it again. The lines were there...


Damage takes time especially water damage. I suggest getting a new phone because over the next month chances are against you that the phone screen will fully black out. Get a new phone as soon as you can. Not having a screen sucks, trust me! I hope I helped you out! Good Luck!

CDM-8915 PHONE IS DEAD!


The solution: I left it alone for 24 hours.
Here's what I did:
I plugged the charger in and allowed it to charge overnight. No lights or screen or screen appeared but I kept it in anyway. After charging, I removed the battery and cleaned all the contacts with Isopropyl rubbing alcohol. When I reinserted the battery, it vibrated intensely, which indicated a strong battery. I did not turn the phone on right away but waited a day. When I turned it on, it responded like nothing was wrong. Perhaps the phone reset itself. That’s how it behaved.
In any event, I have my phone back and it’s working well.

To summarize what happened:

The phone drops into a puddle and is partially submerged for an hour or so. I find it, dry it off and make some calls, with no effects of any kind.
The next morning, it fails completely. No response whatsoever. I recharge the battery and that doesn’t work. What did work was to remove the battery and clean all the contacts and reinsert it and leave it alone for a day.
Lesson learned: record all phone numbers before I lose them forever.
Also, get a better holster so that the phone is secure from falling out.

Thank you very much for your support.

Bill

Tmobile dash frozen on WINDOWS(DIRECT TOUCH TECHNOLOGY SCREEN)


do a sw reset....its possible it was damaged when it was dropped in the water, but not likey....

turn the phone off, press and hold the soft keys (buttons with the lines on them above the home key and back arrow key) and hold it down.....press the power button while you are doing that until the white t-mobile screen will come on, then instead of going to the green windows mobile screen, a black screen with white writing......press the green button....it will get you in your phone but it will erase your info as a result....
