Question about Cell Phones
I have a LG VX5500 and this morning my main screen turned white and I cannot see any incoming calls or anything else. Is there anything I can do?
I have had similar problem wiht my phone. it is common with flip phones.
the problem you might be having here is with your phone "flex".
Flex is a flexible cable that connects the screen with the lower keypad of your phone. after a prolong flipping of the phone, the flex cable breaks and your screen goes white.
You can confirm this by asking an experienced phone technician to open the phone and check the status of the flex. Though the cut on the flex might be a minor cut and if you try to adjust the joint, it might come on again. and if you have a broken flex, my advise will be that you get it changed by an experienced person who has the original part or else you will have multiple problems with your phone.
Good luck and Cheers!

I'm sorry to inform you that there's no way to reset it to factory settings while the screen is while and you can't see the display.
However, you may try the steps below and it might work:
1. Power off the phone and remove the USIM
2. Power on the phone and ignore the SIM warning message
3. Press the following keys *277634#*#
4. Select "Factory Reset" from the menu that appears.
5. After it has reset, power it off, replace the USIM, powerit back on and enjoy your shiny "new" phone!
This procedure may clear any problems that you are having with your LG VX5500 misbehaving, providing that the problem is software based (i.e. not a hardware fault). It is a reasonable first shot before calling CS or sending the phone off for repair.
There are a few other options that will appear also. Just be sure you really do want to use them, if you do.
Otherwise, you may bring your phone to the authorized repair center for possible firmware upgrade.
Have a great day!

Disconnect battery and restart the phone after 5 minutes let the static go away
no if it comes back fine then reset to factory default settings
