Question about LG Dare VX9700 Cell Phone

1 Answer

Broken screen on lg dare Broken touch screen. can it be replaced? got my phone wet for a second. dried it off. everything works, but my touch screen will not respond on the left side of the phone. water damage is not covered under warranty. i have insurance but it is the same as the warranty. I just got the phone a little over a month ago, so i cant exchange it with the 30 day thing. Dropped phone on driveway face down during heavy rainstorm. Lost it, went inside to look for it, came back and saw it. (Probably was being rained on for 2 minutes)...Turns on and everything, but screen doesn't respond to anything. I got caught in a big-time downpour and even though my Dare was in my pocket, it apparently got wet enough to kill the touch screen. Same as you, the phone still functions as long as you don't need the touch screen, which means you can answer a call or use voice commands. My insurance (which I almost never buy on anything) is replacing it because I can't be without it for work. Good luck!

    touch screen won't work. Second time it's happened. first time it just stopped working and didn't fix itself until months later. This time some water dripped on the back of phone. I let it dry in rice. It worked after a day in rice long enough for me to open it once and then it shorted and hasn't worked in a month

The touch screen on my LG Dare is pretty much blacked out after someone dropped phone, it had a good tumble and bounce

Either the screen is broken, or it came unplugged from the main board inside the phone. Which would require some cell phone "surgery" to plug it back in.

Cell phones are not meant to be dropped. I think they make them that way for a reason. To keep people buying new ones.

I was in heavy rain and my phone got wet. I took the battery out and let everything dry. everything works except for touch screen

The digitizer maybe bad. You may want to leave it out without the battery in. use a blow dryer but do not heat it up it will crack the screen. If that doesn't dry the screen out then the digitizer will have to be replaced. hope this helps.

Unresponsive touch Lg Dare Touch screen

sometimes you just need to take the battery out and put it back in. If you've already done that then you may need to take it to Verizon and get it updated.

LG Dare dropped in Pool

Just put it in a bag of rice for couple of weeks. The rice pulls all the water or wetness out of the phone. How do I know, Well I found a brand New Lg Dare phone in a puddle, put it in rice for 2 1/2 months. I took it out of the bag, put it together, turn it on. To my amazement it worked. Ran to store, bought a charger, and it has worked every day since.

How much to replace broken screen on LG dare?

You can get a new screen on eBay for around 50 dollars; however, to get the screen replaced from Verizon itself would cost more than a new phone.

If you're a tech nerd and good with components, you should be able to easily find a way to change the screen online (instructions that is)...if not, better off getting a new phone.

Good condition LG Dares sell on eBay for around 150 dollars.

Hope that helps!

Broken screen on lg dare Broken touch screen. can it be replaced? got my phone wet for a second. dried it off. everything works, but my touch screen will not respond on the left side of the phone. water...

You can buy a new water proof touch screen online and you will be able to go to a Verison store and have them install it for you. Also put the phone in a zip-lock bag full of uncooked rice for several weeks. Make sure the battery and phone are in the bag seperately.
