When i slide my phone open to use the keyboard the screen goes blank and the phone turns off. what is happening and can it be fixed?


The problem is from the flex of the phone.

The flex is the mechanism that assists the phone in flipping.

It is faulty and is not allowing the free flow if information from the board of the screen side of the phone.

so it seizes whenever you slide the phone.

it can be fixed.

all you have to do is replace the flex and it will work perfectly again.

take care

Whenever I slide the phone closed and then slide it open the screen goes completely white. How do I fix this?


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.

Take care.

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 goes blank when opening


Sometimes this problem happens when the wire for the screen get detached from the phone, or if the screen itself has a problem. It is common for flip phones to have this problem. To fix this problem, you need to take it to a repair center and have them reattach the wire onto the main board, which should not be very expensive.

I have a Moterolla V3,my LCD screen is not displaying correctly, I see white and red, but I can't make out anything else. When the phone initially turns on the screen displays the Verizon perfect...then it...

The flex that connects your screen to the phone board is bad and has worn out. It is commom with flip phones. All you need do is to replace the flex and be very mindful of how you close the flip phone.

Take care.

The following instrutions are for a sidekick 3 lcd screen but it is the same for a sidekick id.
