White Screen I have had my sprint M520 for about 3 months since I had the same problem with the same type of phone before. The screen when I open it goes to white while the buttons still work yet I cannot see anything on the screen. I have tried to turn the phone off and on but it doesn't help.

Hi,

The part that is bad is the Ribbon flex cable that geos from the main board to the LCD board. Over time the cable becomes chaffed and will lose continuity between the traces. It can be fixed with

Tessco Part #: GH97-07715A

It does need to be soldered on the LCD side.

My phone will ring and get messages but I cant see anything on the screen. The screen is just lit up white


If you have insurance I would just take it in but if not you screen is iether partionally connected and defective. I would open the phone and disconnect the screen then reconnect it. If this doesnt solve your problem. i would just order a new screen off of ebaby. I have a sprint mogul and mines would cost 30 bucks.

White screen and upside down


the 880 is known for display issues like yours and inverted screens. there is nothing to fix it as it's a software issue. you will have to take it back to sprint/nextel and have it replaced. if you have had it less than a year its covered by warranty or if you have tep insurance there will be no charge to replace it. if all else fails and you have had your phone for at least 22months than you can extend your contract and get a discount on a new phone. I suggest the I9.

My LG Lotus main display just stopped working in the middle of a text I have tried turning it off and taking out the battery if I filp the phone open the screen lightens but doesn't display anything


Take it to a sprint store that has a repair center (check Sprint.com and click "Find a store on the top right corner for which store in your area has the repair centers). They will fix it for free or for $35. Sprint is the only national carrier to support instore repairs, and I praise them for this.

My son's Rumor phone screen is blank after the phone turns on.


If the LCD is white/and or garbled then "YES" this is a known issue.

First locate the Sprint Insignia (Label on the back of device) to check manufacturer date. You will notice two bar-codes one entitled ESN HEX. At the very bottom of the this bar-code is a combination of numbers and letters. The first two numbers are the manufacturer's date (Example: 801). The first number stands for the year and the second number signifies the month. The example above indicates January of 2008.

Most LG Rumor Series manufactured before April 2008 suffered with white/garbled screen. This is a problem with flex cable; simple fix.

Just visit your local Sprint Service Center for this specific repair. Regardless if you have insurance or not, this defect is still covered. Thanks.

LG Rumor's Screen is Displaying Scrambled Images


I called Sprint about this same issue yesterday. I was told by Sprint that the LG Rumors that were made before April of 2008 have a "known issue" with the screen. They said to return it to the store where I purchased it and it will either be fixed or the entire phone replaced free of charge.

I called the store where I purchased the phone (Wireless Giant) today and they agreed. They already had the part on order (a cable) and are fixing my phone on Tuesday, no questions asked.

Hope that helps. Hopefully you bought your phone from a place that has been as helpful as Wireless Giant has been to me. I normally don't have much good to say about customer service but honestly they have been terrific.
