Re: broken screens

Yes, I've seen this happen twice, similarly. When enough shock has been applied to a phone, such as your case, the screen is very susceptable to damage and will need to be repaired or replaced. There's nothing you can do with expertise or spare parts unfortunately, you may even want to look at a new phone if the warranty is out on the phone. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I dropped my phone on my apartment floor it was a motorola razor and when i dropped it the back and the battery fell out i picked it up and put the battery and back on the phone again and when i turned it...

In my humble opinion, you have two inexpensive choices:

  1. Sign onto eBay and type in the following: Motorola V3 Razr original LCD display screen + tools and you can fix it yourself for less than $10.00.
  2. The second option is to buy a used phone for about $20.00 delivered, if you're lucky.

All the best,

Something recently dropped on my blackberry, it had a cover on it and it was faced down. i then picked it up to find out that there were white vertical lines on the screen. it still works perfectly well...

I have had a similar problem with one of my phones and called the phone company right away. They suggested that I take out the battery for about 1 minute then put it back in and try starting the phone up again. It is also possible that some of the connectors on the LCD have cracked (making the white lines appear). Try the first suggestion otherwise if your phone is under warranty I'm sure they will fix it (don't tell them you dropped something on it just say it was in your pocket or something mundane like that). Also make sure not to open the phone because that my hinder the warranty. Good luck!

It's a good chance that the drop may have broken the connection from the board to the LCD, or cracked some of the connectors on the LCD itself as they are tiny pieces of glass and plastic...

I believe that replacing the screen would do it, although if the phone's under warranty, call the carrier up and tell them that you have lines going across the screen... they may just replace it for you.

I had a few dead pixels show up on my 8530... and they sent me a new one, as there were no refurbs at the time... this was about 1o days after I bought the phone. Sent back the old one, and everything has been perfect since...

Sorry can't help more, it's one of those things that unless you pull the device apart it's hard to tell... Also, you might kill your warranty if you open the phone... So it's a Catch 22 either way. Although, I would just let the pros that get paid to rip the phones apart handle it for you...

Upside down screen on my Motorola Crush

I'm assuming your phone changes screen orientation when you tilt the phone. If so, there's a number of small devices called accelerometers that detect such movement, and one may be ****. This might sound a bit odd, but if you can remember what side of the phone hit the ground, smack the opposite side against a hard surface. You might be able to figure it out by where the scuffmarks are.
Example: If there's scuffmarks from being dropped, are on the bottom left corner, smack the top right corner against something.

Nokia 3587i screen not displaying info

Your display circuit is broken, even if the LCD-panel,
seems to be ok the display is damaged.
This is a very common problem in Nokia phones.
The only way to fix this is to change the display.
You need a T-6 Torx Skrewdriver to do the job.

V500 fell down now does not work

Most of the time when a phone is dropped or banged they break the header pins inside the phone and isent worth the repair as its cost prohibited. Best thing to do is see if you have service from your provider . if not taker the phone back to where you got it and see if it still has a warranty on it. Good Luck
