Question about LG VX5200 Cellular Phone
The verizon display has been replaced by a blue screen. Call can be made and receive. But no visual. Any ideas? Thanks Jaimeroo
I had the same problem and just fixed it, literally five minutes ago. You'll have to be a little brave and sure of yourself because it involves taking the phone apart. Around the inside screen are four silver cushion/spongy pieces. Remove these with a very small flathead screwdriver and set aside. Now you will need a very small Phillips head screwdriver to remove the four screws that are underneath these cushions. Once they are removed very carefully use the flathead screwdriver to "crack" open the phone housing. Once it is opened you will see a gold/tan colored ribbon coming from the lower half of the phone. All you have to do is press down on this ribbon to make sure that it is connected to where it is supposed to connect. It's like a puzzle piece that has to fit perfectly in order for the screen to work properly. You can check to see if it's working by turning the phone on before replacing the housing. If it is not recheck the "puzzle piece." I hope this helps.

Ok this worked for me - Follow the steps by pivoforall and when you get to the ribbon cable part , lift the puzzle piece off gently. Take a blow dryer and run it on high for about 30 seconds below the ribbon cable (puzzle piece) and the place where it plugs in. Replace the puzzle piece and make sure it is securely snapped in. Now replace the battery and reboot the phone by hitting the send and end keys at the same time and WOW the screen returns ! Hope it works for you.

This is my second LG VX 5200. The first one died of the dim screen and this one is dying from the blue screen. This has happened to every single LG Ive owned. (vx3200, and 2 VX 3300s). LG is a horrible manufacturer and they make their phones to die in one year of wear and tear. Nokia is probably your best bet. As for a fix, try combinations of popping out the battery, toggling DC power to it form the wall transformer. I am going to try to take mine apart after I back up the contacts to verizon. I'll get back to this forum afterwards. I heard it may be a stretched/disconnected ribbon cable. I would suspect that because my phone doesnt stop a call when I close it, and I did not set it up that way.

I had the same problem, and when i switched batteries it went away. The blue screen has happened to me several times, and as far as i can tell its caused by one of two things: either heat (When i kept the phone in my pocket for an extended period of time it'd act up, or if you use the battery to complete deadness that might cause it too.
