Re: v557 motorola phone display

I had the same problem and suspected that it was the button malfunctioning. I could not use my address book, so I tore the phone apart. I discovered a burned copper thread on the circuit board behind the button. This is probably intentional on the part of Motorola... cheaping around for higher initial profit and then we just have to buy new phones. The circuit can't handle the screen for long period of time. Seems to be a design problem. I am just going to use the parts from the v559 to repair a charge port on my old v557 and switch the chip back.

Re: v557 motorola phone display

Look at just below the screen and you will see a little stub sticking out. when you close the phone up, the stub pushes into a small hole, just above the rt soft key.
When it goes inside this hole, the screen shuts off. There is a problem in in this area. If you have your phone turned on, you can take a small object and push into this hole and your screen comes on. At lease mine did. Problem, once I closed the phone and open it back up, I had to push in the hole again to get a picture. I even sprayed dust remover but with no luck.. I may need to get a new phone.

My motorola v557 cell phone doesn't light up. how


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.

Motorola V557 Black Screen

Hello! The blank screen issue with your V557, could be the LCD Module itself or even the connectivity of the cables inside. Usually the interference is the cables within the handset. It garbles the screen to either a black or white color and can sometimes distort the entire display. This can be a definite sign of hardware problems.

Now without a screen to see, how would you able to even use the handset? Your device is indeed an older model and the features that it offers are not vast. It has no expandable memory to store any pics or movies or music and it barely supports blue-tooth.

In my opinion, with the hardware issues u are facing are great enough to prohibit you from using blue-tooth to transfer your media.
