Replaced the battery and if you are not a tech you should take the phone to a mobile service center and have them check the phone for you.

How to remove lcd screen on kyrocera hydro

  • Remove the battery cover from the back side of the cell phone. Remove the battery from its compartment and set it aside.
  • Use the screwdriver to remove the Phillips-head screws from the back panel of the cell phone. You may also need to remove the antenna from its retaining slot and remove it from the cell phone if you can
  • Separate the back panel of the cell phone from the rest of the cell phone's body. Place the cell phone face up and then remove the cell phone's faceplate from the rest of the cell phone. This should leave the LCD screen, keypad and circuit board completely exposed.
  • Tilt the LCD screen downward and then disconnect the LCD screen's ribbon cable from the LCD screen and set the screen aside.
  • Repeat this procedure in reverse to replace the LCD screen and reassemble the cell phone.

White display


The reason your phone is showing white display is because the flex of the phone is faulty.

  1. get the appropriate screwdriver (Torx 6 screwdriver),
  2. First remove the battery cover & battery. Remove the two screws you see.
  3. Run your fingernail around the join of the front cover and then remove the front cover.
  4. Now remove the four screws you can see.
  5. The top part of the phone (PCB and LCD screen) can now be removed from the middle chassis,
  6. A metal frame surrounds the LCD screen. It's held on with clips around the edge of the PCB. Unclip and remove.
  7. You can now remove the LCD screen. It's attached by a ribbon which connects like a plug and socket. Simply lift it upwards and it'll unplug.
  8. The ribbon which connects the screen to the panel you just removed is what needs replacement, it is attached to the screen so you have to replace the screen, if there is a way you can replace only the ribbon, that would do just fine,
  9. You can now replace the LCD.
  10. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
Take care

Battery gets hot and won't hold a charge; plus shattered LCD screen

the glass and LCD can be fix and replaced but the main-board heating up is saying that the board needs to be replaced but you should just purchase new one.

Replacement Screen for Pantech C810

try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.

This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.
