Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

Cracked screen I lost my phone under the couch cushion and when I found it, It had a crack along the width of it. Everything below the crack doesn't work, which is about 3/4 of the length of the phone. I don't understand how that crack can affect it that much. Would a screen replacement even help? The phone is stuck on speaker phone but I can still talk on it. Please give me some ideas on what I can do to fix this. A screen replacement for this phone is $300 and that's not in my budget. But I have to use the Galaxy version of Siri and all of my texts have to be read out loud and I have to respond by speaking. My privacy is gone. Any help would be great. Thank you.

Look at it this way. The glass MUST be touching the pixelated screen under it, otherwise... it will not work. SO! first. try pushing it back in place.... other than that! you need a screen replacement... or you broke the bottom half of the key detection unit which will cost more than a new phone to replace.

This is a frustrating protocol that companies need to maintain " no physical damage" it is due to idiots who abused the warranty and made us the ones who need it ,suffer . There is a way around it . It may charge a deductable and providing that your insurance covers lost or stolen producte. File the claim. I repair cell phones .a ez repair may cost 100 to 150

SOURCE: samsung tocco 480 screen is cracked/broken

The screen should keep working with the LCD cracked. i.e you should be able to receive calls.
You can find replacement LCD screens for Samsung F480 in this link:

I CANT SEE MY SCREEN ON MY PHONE


What kind of phone?
It will help to put your model here.
With out the model, we are somewhat lost.
General ideas....
Make sure the battery is charged.
Go to the menu options and make sure the LCD is on, if there is an option to shut off the lcd.
The screen LCD may be broken or cracked.
One way to test for a cracked or broken screen is to put it in the sunlight with the power off. Slowly turn the phone from side to side and up and down looking at the screen. If it is broken or cracked you may see a difference in coloring of the surface under the glass or plastic cover.

If the phone works at all, and if you have a camera on it. take a picture, then down load it to your computer to view it. If the picture takes okay, then your lcd is either broken or cracked or disconnected within the phone, or some cable could be loose as well.
Anyway, hope it works.

Cracked screen, dented top


I would say just the screen. You may have to bend the metal a little on the edges if needed.

Broken flat screen tv


If you have not yet fixed this and haven't trashed the set I may have a solution.

I have a 50HP66 that has a good screen but bad sustain boards.

I will buy the boards from you...Easy to remove. Then you can use that money to buy a new TV.

Fixing a cracked screen is not practical. IE. Replacing the whole screen.

These sets are made to be sent to the land fill when the warranty is up.

Maybe we should have our lawmakers force companies to have minimum warranties for large toxic products that end up in the trash. Then they might make them last more than a year.

Cracked outside LCD Screen on my PEBL


This is a big take-appart for someone who is not used to this.

I have not worked on your particular model. With many of these phones, it is a combination of snap-fit and small screws.

The work is delecate. It is possible to break or disturb something along the way. At home you will not have the means to do any of the SMD type soldering, or to troubleshoot the phone if something goes wrong.

My preference for someone who is not experienced, trained, and equiped, would be to take the phone to the service center for it, and have them change the piece. At least you know that you will have a working phone when they finish.
