Re: Screen turn Black

Put your phone in a bag, put it in the freezer...
It will might work until it warms up again..

It might be your screen, it might be the body of the phone...

for the screen...

get a TORX 6 screwdriver

take it apart
Google for V220 take apart/ disassembly

WIggle the tiny flex cable connector
near the hinge.. still no luck ????

Buy another V220 on ebay

gently take the phone apart and sub in the whole
screen shell and front of keypad.

DO NOT TRY TO remove the screen from the body section..
you will destroy to the teeny tiny flex cable.

Still problems?
then its the body... your phone is useless
undo what you did, re-assemble the parts phone,
learn how to flash the spare phone..

USB adapter
Motorola P2K drivers for XP
Motorola or other flash tools
enter phone service mode
connect phone to pc
flash back to V 364 firmware
run unlocker
flash unlock firmware
enter dummy unlock
reflash to v365 firmware

More details googling above and reading lots

OR.. Pay $10-20 have someone else do it...

I wont, too much work...
