Electrostatic touchpad won't work

When I open the phone the electrostatic touchpad doesn't light up or operate.  It didn't work before then after about 1 day it started working again.  It worked for a couple of weeks just fine then now it stopped working again and hasn't operated for a couple of days.  Have never dropped it. Any ideas?

Re: Electrostatic touchpad won't work

been through this one with you just the exact same.
I never dropped mine aswell. though what I descovered is that
samsung make their phones only to last for up to 6 months till they need 2 be repaired.
The thing that I think is up with your SGH-E900 is that you
must have over chagered it for to long and burned up the sensors
or you have been pressing the buttons too hard.
sorry that I couldn't be more of a help though if you still have
your phone under the 1 year warranty you can get it repaired, they might not accept it if you only have a couple of days left of your warranty because they won't get it back to you by the time your warranty has ran done.

Touch screen won't work

Trying to remove the battery sometimes resets any issues. If it's not under warranty one can repair it with the use of micro precision screwdriver kit you can get at the dollar general for about 4 dollars. First I would disassemble it, and try reseating the flex cable that attaches the LCD screen to the main board. There is a plastic lock that holds the cable in, so make sure to lift that up before gently pulling the flex cable out. If pulling it out and putting it back in doesn't make a difference I would look at replacing the flex cable, and lastly the LCD panel. Because you didn't mention anything about cracks, water, or any other LCD damage, my opinion leans towards the flex cable shorting out.

My inside screen on my enV3 stopped working It works on start up and shoes the whole verizon deal then it's like somebody switches it off and it just won't work when I open the phone up the outside...

Trevor, your enV3 phone has an "lid" problem as applicable to your verizon phone. The best and easiest solution to your phone issue is for you to take it to a verizon office for them to update and fix it the internal screen problem for you.

My touchscreen doesn't work,

Usually when touch screen doesn't work, it's a sign of water damage. It's also possible that you dropped it at some point and ruined the sensors inside. But it's PROBABLY water damage. What you can do is bring it to your phone carrier's closest store and ask them to check if your phone suffered water damage. They'll open the phone up and look. If it is water damage, you'll probably have to pay for a new one...If you're insured, it probably won't be that expensive.

The good news is, if you bring it there and it ISN'T water damage, you probably won't have to pay anything at all for them to replace it. Hope this helps!

Touchpad unlock

im not sure what your problem is , I think your saying your touchpad is locked and your screen is white so you cant get it unlocked correct....its either if you hold star in or its the pund sign in and it unlocks the key pad worse case take the battery out and put it back in..... but i work for verizon and you can take that phone in and they will swap it out for you just tell them you didnt do anything physicial to it damage wise and be nice to them because that was a defest on the original chocolate..

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?

LG KG800 touchpad locked

As a default setting on the KG800, the phone automatically locks due to its touch screen sensitivity. If it doesn't work with the slide closed, try opening it, going into Settings, then Security, then touchpad lock, and set it on off. If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas. Sorry. It's a great phone with nice features and all, but I've gotta tell you, I'm getting pretty sick of all its problems. If there's anything else I can attempt to help you with, my email is: Good luck!
