172 will not work after dropping

I dropped my 172 on the tile floor of my house.  It will turn on and the screen illuminates but nothing else will happen.  Any suggestions for repair or someone that can repair it?

Hi,
Have you solved the problem?
If not you shall check that the flexible cable to the screen is securely connected to the circuit board. Check also the other cables.

Dropped my LG CF360 cell phone on the tile floor. phone operates fine but screen is now blank. it appeared to be fine immediately after dropping it but now the screen is blank? any ideas?


yes. this is a common fault with any phone that falls on the tile floor, especially if it lands using the screen(even if it doesnt, the screen might still be affected). the only solution is to send it to a repairer because it would require the attention of an expert due to the crack or damage done to the main display screen which in most cases would have to be replaced with a brand new one

Nintendo DS lite - dropped


Might be worth taking it into a phone repair shop to see if they can replace the LCD screen. (yes, a phone repair shop - a lot of them do portable console screens too!) If they can't do it, it's probably unfixable realistically.
