The screen freezes when the phone is flipped open.
No water damage. Didn't fall. This happened literally all of a sudden. I went to open the phone to call my mother and the screen was black. If a call comes in, the phone continues to ring, but the screen remains either black, white or jut diplays my mobile wallpaper with no option to make any menu elections. I think it might be the fact that I didn't go through the entire process of "safely removing hardware" when I finished uploading pictures to my PC, but I'm not sure. PLEASE HELP.

Re: The screen freezes when the phone is flipped open.
You didnt mention what phone it is??? However as you said it happens when you flip it open, it is most likely the flex that connects your phone main PCB to the LCD display...
All flip handsets have a flex ribbon, which connects the screen to the phone, a tiny tear or even a kink in these can cause the behaviour you explained, it can be anything from No display, to no sound, no camera, etc... depending on the phone...
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

you cant the screen is damaged 1st an likely the electronics . u can take the battery out an put it in a oven at 120 for 2 hrs. or freeze it , or put in bucket of dry rice .all these are a fairy story usually.
there are chemical to remove moisture . anything i an think of will require opening it an not a expected good outcome.
iv fixed few that were dropped in water. usually the battery was running an fried some components. once i dropped one in pool an it ran underwater an it was not water proof . go figure.
Since you can see the wallpaper dimly, the problem is with the flex, which is wearing out softly. That is the problem with slide, flip and swivel phones. It does not have to drop, but constant flipping, sliding or swivelling could cause its flex to wear out. Get it to a local repairer, and see if the flex can be repaired. Other wise, it would have to be replaced. Hope that helped? Success.
Hi, if the phone you are talking about is this RAZR V3, then what you have is a flex or screen problem. It either the flex is disconnected from the board panel or screen because of the sudden fall, or that you have damaged the screen itself due to the sudden fall. In both situation, you have to take the phone to a repairer to diagnose which one of the problem is and fix it,,,
If its a flip or slide handset, then the flex ribbon is damaged, this will need to be changed...
Sliding and flip phones have a thin ribbon, which connects the phones screen and any buttons that are at the top to the phones main PCB... A damaged one of these can cause anything from no display at all, white screen, fuzzy colours, rotated screen, dodgy bits, non functioning buttons and lots of other things.
Depending on your model you may be able to get a ribbon from somewhere like ebay and fit it yourself, some are more awkward than others, there should be a guide available somewhere, however it does depend on which phone it actually is :)
What I would do is turn it off completelly for a few minutes. take out the battery and let it cool down for a few minutes. If you have a battery that if fully charged put it back in and turn on your phone. if your battery is not totally charged, charge it. A phone whose battery is not fully charged may cause your phone to flip out. sometimes it's also water damage to the phone that causes it to turn off on its own.
Water damage happends from body heat, from taking it to the bathroom when you're in the shower, or from putting it directly in water.
