Question about Samsung Galaxy Cell Phones

1 Answer

Screen went white, then black and is not working at all. Took in to Best Buy and they said my phone's missing the water tester in the back even though the one on the battery is still there and indicates no damage. This is a brand new phone bought on the day after Thanksgiving. Best Buy says they only warranty it for 15 days, and we didn't buy extended coverage. It's never been dropped, nor any water damage.

Remove the battery for 5 minutes and retry. If the battery is dead or low, then plug it in and try turning it on.

Well you know now that the warranty is void, so you should take the phone to a mobile service center and have them service it to try and have it working for you again......but most water/liuid damaged phones are like a 50/50 chance of working again.

You have damaged the delicate internal LCD beneath the more rigid touch panel......but luckily for you, it is easy to replace and rather inexpensive. Here is an example of what you need....OEM replacement with return policy.

  1. REmove the battery door and battery then all the back screws.........
  2. pop off the back
  3. remove internal lcd and replace with new
  4. close casing back with screws
  5. GO!!!
Cut and Dry you cant mess this up, trust me......just use your head and you will feel like a real tech genius when your done. now you will be good to go and try not to drop your phone so much...:D

White screen`

the white and black screen issue on the Razr V3xx can be a bad LCD. If the LCD is good then the issue is on the main board. The most common failure is broken contacts on FL6505 and FL6504. resoldering might hold up for a while but replacement is the best option.

the side view clearly shows the damage to the filter. this is only visible after the solder is removed.


hope this helps.

My phone displays a white main screen

My Solution: Heat it up by just sitting on it or holding it in your hands// Take the battery out and back in/ Try keeping the battery out of it for a full day
My Story :) My mom dropped the phone in the dishes because she was drunk haha, I quickly took out the battery, but when the next day came by I looked at the phone and saw the same problem everyone here has. I kept replacing the battery on the hope it would just magically fix itself. Now 2 days from when it dropped in water, I kept flipping it, replaced the battery again (just taking it out and back in) after I sat on it a while, possibly the heat somehow helped it to work again.. I'm amazed it works haha, it was in the water fully submerged for half a min when I had to snatch it out of the dishes But, it is most likely that I took the battery out, the battery is the thing that ruins electronics, just remember to take it out if you drop it in water. Good luck. If worst comes to worst and your going to buy a new phone, maybe try using a blow dryer on it for a little bit **or just do this in the first place**
