Re: touchpad off and blank screen

I was having a similar problem, Except that my Touchpad WORKED, You just coudln't see it working. It made noises though.

Anyways, now I have to (instead of opening the screen to view it like usual) hit the unlock button (third down on the left side) and the screen appears.

We aren't having the same problem, but it's similar. Maybe it'll work?

My LG phone screen will not react to touch


When a phone screen is blank or has a white screen, etc, there are three things that could be the cause;

1. Bad/defective screen and the solution is screen replacement. (In your case, your screen might be failing).
2. Software/Virus problem and solution is to flash the phone
3. Flex problem and solution is to change the flex. In some cases the flex might have shifted or not in it's right position, in this case, just fix the flex back properly and all will be well.

Bad/defective screen:

If your phone is having a white screen, first thing to do is dismantle the phone carefully, check if the screen is properly fixed to the phone board, also check if screen flex is intact. Once you've confirmed that all these are okay and screen is not still coming up, then it means your screen is bad. You can go ahead and replace the screen.

Make sure you confirm the screen is bad before you do any replacement.


Sometimes software/virus problem on phones are mistaken to screen problem. When a screen is white or blank, sometimes it's a virus problem. To further confirm, turn on the phone, wait for about 2 minutes when you know the phone must have booted fully, then use another phone to call the phone with white or blank screen. If the phone rings, it means it's not a virus problem, but if it doesn't ring, it means it's a software/virus problem.

If you discover your phone has a virus problem, you will have to flash the phone for it to display again,

Flex problem

When your phone screen is blank, white, has horizontal/vertical lines, turn images up-side-down, etc, be calm, there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out, that's why your screen is acting like any of the mentioned problem.

This is usually common with flip and slide phones. The flex worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone. Samsung and Motorola phones mostly have this kind of problems.

Replacing the flex is the only solution to this problem. If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be replaced.


Disassemble your phone and check the screen part in order to verify from the above which is actually the cause of the problem.

Please let me know if you need anymore assistance.

Good luck.

The bottom part of my iPhone touchpad is not responding to touch

The touch on the screen works as a seperate component from the screen itself. Either the lower portion is damaged and has to be replaced, or it is wet and can't sence touch as a result. The one may get better in time if the components don't corrode, the other is probably not resolvable...

Sony ericsson w960i touchpad not working

Comment posted on Jan 08, 2009 I looked on another site and it was suggested I take out the sim card and underneath is a tiny black switch (lump of black plastic the size of a pin head) this was sticking out and not flush to the rim so I pushed this in. Although it did not work straight away, after turning the phone on and off and taking out the sim card and blowing on it. After replacing the sim,battery and cover and then it worked???? The touch pad now works!!
