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.

I have Verizon Lg-VX9200 that won't completely turn on. Every time I start it up the screen shows Verizon Wireless, then goes white, and repeats.

This can be two things.
1. Have you dropped your phone in the water recently? If so, put it in a bag of rice (no joke) for about a day. Then Take it out and try again.

2. If this does not work, than you have a corrupted battery. Go to Verizon and ask them about buying a new one.

Ipod 80gig - white screen problem

I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.
